Had a gold ring I never wear, and rather sell it than have it sit around. I originally took it to one of those buy gold shops, and didn't feel comfortable with their evaluation, and also felt they were low balling me. I spoke with David at Mimi's and can tell he knew what he was talking about, and gave me a very fair deal. He's a super nice guy, and honest. Thanks!
I picked up my ring today and WOW- I was completely blown away and speechless! I can't stop looking at my ring. It is absolutely perfect. I went to David to "upgrade" the center diamond on my wedding ring for our 25th anniversary. He exceeded all of my expectations. First, we scheduled a meeting so I could tell him exactly what I was looking for. David is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and he is also friendly and easy to talk to. His communication was excellent throughout the process. He is accessible through phone, email and text. I felt very safe and trusted him with my wedding ring. On the day of pick up, I was emailed an appraisal with all the proper certifications which I was able to send to our insurance for immediate coverage. Everything was seamless throughout this whole process and I could not be happier!!
I reached out to Mimi's via Yelp. I needed my girlfriends ring repaired and cleaned. I was hoping for it to be done before the 14th knowing well that it was highly unlikely. However, they achieved this and more by having it fixed and cleaned incredibly well on the 13th.
I really appreciate the effort and care put into the ring.
They were informative and professional with a welcoming atmosphere. I will definitely be returning for all my jewelry needs.
Pictures are before and after.
This review is long overdue, but better late than never! Mimi's Jewelry sincerely deserves every bit of praise and 5 stars given to them! I've known David at Mimi's Jewelry for 5 years now from when a friend of mine was proposed to with a gorgeous engagement ring designed by the amazing David. Since then, I've commissioned David to create jewelry for myself and have even referred other friends to him over the years. The first time I collaborated with David, I brought him images that I found online and asked if he could bring the designs and my ideas to life - he exceeded all expectations! The dainty ring and delicate diamond necklace he created for me were absolutely stunning, but his professionalism and genuine kindness turned me into a loyal client. The second time I met with David, I sold jewelry to him and it was such an easy and comfortable transaction. Last year, my girlfriends and I collaborated with David to turn an old sentimental diamond bracelet into matching friendship anklets for us girls, and the whole process was such a breeze from start to finish. We were thrilled with our new matching friendship anklets, but even happier with the overall experience. I recently needed to have a watch resized in time for new job interviews and sent David a quick message requesting to come by after work; he responded swiftly and even remembered the usual time I'm off of work!! If that doesn't show how impressive David's attention to detail AND commitment to client service is, I don't know what else to tell you! David's professionalism, warm personality, and beautiful designs are impeccable - he will wow you with his creations and keep you coming back with his outstanding service. The effort he puts into his work on top of maintaining relationships with his clients are truly unmatched; I don't know how many other ways I can emphasize this. Thank you for being your awesome self all these years, David! I can't wait for you to design my engagement ring one day (when I'm ready LOL)!
I am super pleased with the level of customer service this shop provided. They went out of their way to take care of my needs. I highly recommend them. Thanks Mimi's!
David is truly the best jeweler ever! My (now) fiance and had been looking around at rings for awhile and I had gotten some inspiration but didn't find anything that was perfect for me.. After searching for months around the area (we live in Lake Tahoe), my parents told us to take a trip down to see David.
In the meantime, we were gifted a vintage ring that belonged to my fiances grandmother. The ring had a lot going on with several diamonds of different sizes so I wasn't sure how we would be able to build my dream ring.... But David came to the rescue!
He's incredible. He spent time getting to know us and our lifestyle before even diving into the design (I think that is his secret). He was able to mock up my dream ring by understanding us as a couple and incorporated every design aspect I could have dreamed of. His attention to detail is impeccable and the final product is out of this world.
He is unique and so knowledgeable, not to mention the best jeweler in the game... Every girl dreams of their wedding ring from a young age but David was able to design a ring that blew my "dream ring" out of the water. It is everything I could've imagined and more.
Being in Tahoe, we were still involved in every step of the process of designing. As we got closer to the final product, David kept me out of the equation and worked with my fiance to add the finishing touches. When the time came.. I was ecstatic and blown away!!
Every element of surprise was there and I am still in awe of the ring on my finger.. It is the most beautiful piece of jewelry I have ever seen and it embodied every part of Scott and I as a couple. The vintage design elements put the ring over the top and really plays into the vintage diamonds we used. PERFECT doesn't even begin to describe it. We will be going to David for every single jewelry need from now on.
I'm so thankful I found Mimi's over 14yrs ago. I was so nervous to have anyone mess with my engagement ring but the center stone needed a different placement & David was highly recommended. Not only did he fix & secure the center diamond he made the new layout better than anything I could of imagined. I thought I loved my ring before but he made it the ring of my dreams. Now 14yrs & 3 kids later I needed to resize the band. I don't live in CA anymore but there's no way I would trust anyone else, so I brought my ring on our trip to CA & David took care of it before going back home. My band has detailed engraving all over it, he added more gold & matched the existing engraved work, you can't even tell anything was done it's flawless. Now I can finally wear my wedding ring again & it fits perfectly. Thank you David & staff for fitting us in & taking such good care of something so dear & important to my heart.
They did a beautiful job taking 3 very different rings and combining into one beautiful, delicate ring. Wonderful service, absolutely worked with us until we found the design we liked.
My girlfriend Liesel recommended this jeweler . I am so glad I checked Mimi's out normally I don't go anywhere except to my jeweler but I didn't want to drive down south so since she highly recommended him I figured I would go check him out and I'm so glad I did. I will definitely go back .
Mimi's Jewelry is an amazing place of business. The staff is courteous and provide excellent customer service. I went in to sell my diamond rings. David gave me a very fair price for my jewelery. He walked me through the entire process and gave me a realistic estimate for what I could sell my diamonds. He was consistent with everything I read online and he offered me a cash payout that was more than fair. I would definitely do business here again and would go back to purchase jewelery. Their display cases had pieces that anyone would be pleased to own.
Through the generations in my family, a beautiful black onyx and diamond ring has been handed down and unfortunately, I was not on the receiving end of this spectacular piece of jewelry. I took the design of the ring and reached out to David at Mimi's and asked him to create the same piece of jewelry but in the form of a necklace/pendant. The necklace is far more beautiful than the ring by a landslide! The careful thought, the collaboration, the attention to detail - I love everything about this pendant and am beyond grateful to David and his team for the impeccable attention to detail as they delivered a spectacular piece of jewelry beyond my expectations. This is not the first time that I've approached Mimi's to design a piece of jewelry for me and always, always I am beyond impressed with their kindness, professionalism, guidance, and simply - the entire process is flawless from start to finish. Check out the pictures that I've attached - I absolutely love this necklace (as well as my rings!). Thank you, David and the Mimi's team for another awesome experience!
I have been going to MiMi's jewelry for over 2 decades. On my latest visit, I turned in old gold I was no longer wearing, so easy. I also had the prongs of my wedding ring upgraded. When I picked up my ring, it was dazzling! It looked like the first day it was given to my 27 years ago. They are always helpful and knowledgeable. They do an excellent job at Mimi's jewelry!
