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.

Jewelry Repair

Our in-house technicians can repair broken settings, bent pieces, cracked gems, or really any issue that needs fixing on your special jewelry items. 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.

  •   Do you know why you see all those five star reviews here? Because Mimi's isn't just an incredibly good jewelry store, they are also great people!

    Have bought several items from Mimi's, all have exceeded expectations. Also had David make a couple new pieces from some estate and inherited gems - his creativity, attention to detail and results are amazing. Even more importantly the service at Mimi's is just incredible. It's like having a jeweler in the family!

    I live on the other side of the country as do a great number of his biggest fans and customers. They are the only place I would go for any jewelry, and every person I referred to Mimi's has been equally as pleased.

      Service and quality of work have always been 5 stars here. This particular Friday afternoon, the staff went above and beyond earning the 6th star! It was near 6pm when I came in to have my battery watch replaced and customize my costume necklace jewelry, into a bracelet. The girls were so attentive and did everything on the spot. I wasn't feeling rushed out or feeling like a burden at closing time. It took less than 8 minutes to change my battery and cut the link, customizing my necklace in front of me! It turned out better than I even envisioned! Although I brought my own watch battery, and was expecting to pay labor, to which the girls dismissed any type of payment- sending me out with a smile. Thank you so much for your great service, generosity and earning my continued, repeat business MIMI!
