Orange County Jewelry Repairs, Restorations & Ring Resizing
Keeping Our Precious Jewelry Precious
Jewelry is often the most meaningful and valuable of your personal items. Whether it is a wedding ring commemorating your love for your sweetie, a pair of earrings handed from one generation to the next, or that hard-earned anniversary watch you received from your employer, jewelry is a continual symbol of your love and admiration.
Naturally, you want to protect, maintain, and repair these precious items that you will likely wear for a good part of your lifetime. It is worth finding a solid jeweler to establish a relationship for all your jewelry care needs. Jewelry restoration Orange County can provide these benefits for your beloved items.
Maintaining Your Jewelry
A diamond ring, pendant, or bracelet is brilliant when it is first acquired and cherished. It will seem to stay shiny for a while, but all that hand- and dishwashing, lotion, and everyday dust and dirt will make it look dingy – almost faded. But if you take it to a jeweler, they can:
- Do their ultrasonic and steam magic
- Inspect the settings of your jewelry. To the naked eye, it may look like your ring is in perfect shape and those prongs are holding the gems in place, but a jeweler can use specialized magnifying equipment to see each prong and setting.
- If any prongs or parts are bent or damaged, the jeweler can restore the parts to ensure your setting is secure. Jewelers highly recommend that you have your ring inspected by a jeweler on a regular basis.
From the caring and capable hands of your jeweler, you’ll be amazed at how sparkly and shiny your jewelry looks.
Be sure to have damaged items repaired
Necklaces, bracelets and other jewelry can easily be damaged by:
- Everyday wear and tear such as scrapes against walls and furniture
- Getting caught in your hair or sweater
- A small child yanking on it
It’s so disconcerting to feel a chain being pulled apart while you’re wearing it. Fortunately, jewelry repair Orange County can easily fix or solder a chain clasp and its mechanisms – so if you bring it in quickly, you will be admiring it in the mirror again before you know it.
Restoring That Treasured Item
If your piece is damaged or is missing gems, or you have antique jewelry, you may feel that piece is too worn or not fixable. But instead of having it sit in your drawer or jewelry box, your Orange County jeweler can rescue and revitalize that piece. Or they can repurpose a piece for you – for example, taking a gem from a ring and transforming it into a pendant. An on-site master jeweler will take special care to bring that piece to a wearable state so you can admire it again, or pass it on to a loved one, rather than having it sit in limbo.
The Size Of Your Ring Is Important
When you are given that ring from your grandmother to give to your intended, the ring will most likely not be the correct size. Whether too large or too small, a jeweler can adjust the size of your ring to fit perfectly – ring resizing Orange County. Having the correct size ring will prevent your ring from sliding around or having to resort to using butter or soap if it won’t come off. But a proper fit will also help prevent the wear and tear caused by an incorrect size.
Watch Repair Orange County
Jewelers also work with watches – you can have them adjusted for size, replace the battery, or replace damaged parts. They can also buff out scratches on a watch face or even add a different band if you are ready for a change.

I purchased my engagement ring from NK Jewelers in Fountain Valley but when one of the diamonds fell off, I brought it back to them. Instead of trying to help me get the stone replaced, they tried to sell me a new setting for $1200. They told me it probably wouldn't be possible to replace because they don't make this style anymore and it would cost too much to replace so it would be easier to buy another ring. I wanted time to consider my options so after leaving NK, I went to Mimi's. Mimi's sent it in for a quote and it came back at $280. They replaced the diamond in less than 2 weeks! Mimi's provided great service, honesty, and reasonably priced. I'm buying my jewelry from Mimi's from now on.
I recently had the need to find a reliable, trustworthy jeweler in Orange County. I was lucky to find the very best jewelry store nearby in Fountain Valley! My meeting with David, the owner, was such a pleasant and friendly experience, I will definitely return to do business with Mimi's again and again in the future.

I recently worked with David and he gave a very fair and honest price for my mother-in-laws Rolex. The process is always straight forward and easy. David is a consultant professional and is upfront about the realistic value for such pieces. I live in Illinois, but quickly became comfortable doing business with Mimi's Jewelry. I highly recommend this business!
David at Mimi's was super honest, he quoted me the highest on buying my ex wife's wedding ring back. I went to the original builder of the ring and he offered less and wasn't as honest and upfront as David was. Will for sure be coming back for life and have earned my business for the future.
Searching for a Diamond can be a tough process. The first few jewelers I went into felt like used car salesmen and didn't take much time to educate me on diamonds or the important features to look for. I was frustrated and thought I might have to order a stone online from Blue Nile or James Allen. A family friend referred me to David at Mimi's and he made a great impression upon our meeting. David's passion for diamonds is evident and he took time to explain what is important when looking for a stone. It was a no pressure environment and David said he could work with whatever our budget was and provide the most competitive prices. He is involved in the local community as well and does a ton of referral business which shows he cares about his clients. If you are in need of a jewler who is knowledgeable about his craft, passionate and very professional, I would recommend reaching out to David

Great jeweler and kind and wonderful customer service! Appraisal for the jewelry I brought in was fair. Recommend highly. David was fantastic with his honesty and prices.
Came in for a ring resizing and really enjoyed the service here. Communicated first with David over yelp to set up an appointment which was very easy and clear, he also let me know the business would be closed due to various events, which was very helpful for timing.
Pricing was up front and fair, drop off and pickup was also very straightforward.
Other associates helped when I went to pick up my ring, so I can say the great service and hospitality also extended to the other employees as well.
I highly recommend Mimi's Jewelry. Not only was the customer service superb, the craftsmanship phenomenal. David really went out of his way to help me restore my Grandmothers wedding ring. Having recently passed, there was a lot of sentimental attachment to a very old ring that needed a lot of work. But David and team were up to the challenge! I couldn't be more pleased with the work; I look at the ring and smile very time! Thank you, the results really speak for themselves.

Thank you soooo Much!!!! Beautiful Work!!!I was so sad when I lost the stone from my wedding ring, David was so kind and knowledgeable-he met with me to pick a beautiful emerald to make my ring new again!! Thank you Mimi's Jewelry Team and David for your artistry in rebuilding my ring and making my heart happy!!
I have had the pleasure of customizing three pieces of jewelry with David at Mimi's over the past few years. Each time, the staff of Mimi's has provided exceptional service. The store atmosphere is very warm and inviting, I have always felt welcomed. The staff makes your experience so special and were interested in hearing the reason behind the pieces I wanted designed. Each piece of jewelry came out exactly as I wanted designed, with some minor tweaks to one piece that David was very happy to accommodate. I have recommended this store to several people who have already been very happy with the outcome of their final jewelry pieces as well. I highly recommend Mimi's Jewelry.
