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.

Mimi’s Jewelry in Orange County has a long-standing reputation of doing repair & fine jewelry restoration.

All work is done onsite by master jewelers & gemologists ensuring the same attention to detail that we use when creating our award-winning custom designs. Nothing is ever truly lost or broken. We can fix it!

Fine Restoration
Loose diamonds, details lost their luster, missing part of a set? Nothing is ever truly lost of broken. We’ll fix and restore your precious pieces. Jewelry restoration requires several technical steps in order to bring each piece as close as possible to its original condition. Antique jewelry needs special care and Mimi’s Jewelry is your source for full service restorations.

Mimi’s has decades of experience repairing jewelry for our clients. We offer a high level of expertise and our master goldsmiths are able to perform even the most intricate repairs with ease.

Ring Sizing
Have a ring that is too small or too big? This is a very common problem that can usually be easily remedied. Stretching or adding a bridge allows us to size rings up, while simply cutting a small piece and rejoining allows us to size them down. Not all types of metals can be resized, but we’ll work with you to find the best solution.

Mimi’s Jewelry, Inc – Orange County’s Finest Jeweler

Our Client’s Love Us!

  •   If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. I'm in awe with the work that David and the Mimi's Jewelry team just did on my rings and earrings. For years I've been told by other jewelers that the work I needed done on my wedding ring couldn't be done because of how the diamonds were set in the band. Even a simple resizing couldn't be done. I finally took my beloved ring to David because I knew he's an expert craftsman and well-known in our community for quality work. He's the only person I would trust with my band. The ring came back gorgeous, sparkly, polished, and properly resized. The work done on my beat-up (well-loved) ring was so beautiful that it moved me to tears. I was stunned. It looked brand new!! David was also able to give me some information on another ring I brought in to be re-sized that I found in an antique shop in New Zealand. Again, that sapphire ring came back even more beautiful. The high quality work was equally impressive on the repair of pearl earrings I've had since my honeymoon years ago. YELP people, this jewelry store is the real deal. They're professional and friendly, and best of all, they truly know the art of high-end jewelry craftsmanship. Thanks, David!

      We needed to fix a diamond wedding ring and thought this would be the perfect time to update it, we had a few ideas we wanted to incorporate to the ring.  David worked with us and helped recreate a beautiful ring.  He went above and beyond our vision.  The final result is a timeless everlasting work of art, a custom piece that my husband and I very much appreciate.
    Thank you Mimi's Jewelry!

      Came to Mini's Jewelry looking for a specific style of ring to propose to my girlfriend. Mimi designed the ring in Solidworks/CAD before even starting the ring which I thought was really cool as we could make design iterations before finalizing what the ring could look like. Mimi delivered a beautiful ring in a super reasonable time and for a good price. I was very happy with my decision to go through this shop and especially with Mimi. Even though this isnt the biggest or priciest ring, I felt like she gave me all the time and attention in the world to get the details right. Thank you so much for the wonderful ring and experience!

      I am completely blown away by the professionalism and expertise offered by David. He was extremely easy to talk to and proved to be very trustworthy. He quoted us a very fair price to repair my wife's wedding ring and far exceeded our expectations. He obviously cares a great deal about the quality of his work and he wanted it to be perfect. I am so happy and I will definitely recommend Mimi's to my friends and family!

  •   Great 1st experience at Mimi's and it will not be my last. Don't let other places tell you they can't resize a diamond eternity band. The owner, David, worked his magic and was able to size up my band.  Top notch work, great price, and friendly service.
    Thank you!

      I heard about Mimi's Jewelry from my best man Brian and it was nothing but good things.

    I met David (the owner) and his staff and right off the bat, David kindly and courteously helped me find the perfect ring within my budget. It's pretty obvious that at Mimi's jewelry the culture is about helping customers find their dream jewelry making the customers feel valued and cared for rather than just a number. They are about building and maintaining relationships first instead of just looking for a profit.

    If you are looking for a jeweler where you will feel cared for, look no further than Mimi's jewelry.

    Thank you, David and team, for your help and generosity!

      I honestly can't say enough good things about David and Mimi's Jewelry. When my search for the perfect black diamond ring started, I went to a big box store that has the fancy commercials and catchy phrase, "He went to J****." After weeks of going back and forth with them and not getting anywhere, I decided to get a refund and look elsewhere. I was referred to Mimi's Jewelry by a work friend and was so glad I decided to give David a call. I made an appointment, told him what I was wanting to design, and later that night he sent me a rendering which was exactly what I was wanting. He crafted the most perfect ring for my fiance, is extremely responsive in all of his communication, and is so easy to work with. I've told all of my friends and family about Mimi's and I don't think I will ever go to another jeweler. If you are looking for a trustworthy jeweler, go to David@Mimi's. Thank you, David. Jaclyn says thank you as well!

  •   I was in to fix three chains and to add magnet clasps to them.  Such a lovely experience with Kat.  She took such good care of me and treated me like I was spending a lot of money (I wasn't).   However, when I do purchase it will definitely be at Mimi's and hopefully with Kat!

      They went above and beyond with this ring! Thank you so much for explaining the quality, choices and making this special gift for my husband to give me. David is a wealth of knowledge and always makes you feel comfortable. Looking forward to sharing with everyone that asks about my ring where I got it.

      I had an awesome experience with David at Mimi's Jewelry. I went in wanting to sell my old wedding rings. David took his time taking a look at my jewelry and even took one of the diamonds out to weigh it. He offered me a fair price and I was super happy with the care and time he took to make sure I was getting the best quote for my items. They are a local family and it was great to be able to support a small local business.
