Pieces of jewelry are more than just gifts. They are treasured for the emotional value that comes with them. However, one must remember that each piece also has significant financial value, and you may not know how much worth that it has if it was given to you as a present or an inheritance. That said, this information is crucial to have if you are considering insuring or selling it in the future.
At Mimi’s, we are more than just a jewelry store in Newport Beach. We have both a master jeweler and a certified gemologist on staff to appraise your piece and provide you with a detailed report explaining our findings.
Our appraisal begins with careful inspection of the jewelry. We will examine the gemstones and diamonds for clarity, color, cut, and carat weight, along with the carat weight of any gold. Then we factor in the market price of other metals in the piece and the current retail prices of the similar jewelry.

My husband and I came here to have my broken wedding band fixed and David noticed a small crack in one of the diamonds on my engagement ring that I couldn't even see and had it fixed for me! The price for resizing and fixing a ring was significantly cheaper than other local jewelers. They have the best service; very professional, friendly and communicative with customers. We will definitely come back for all future jewelry needs!
Besides making BEAUTIFUL pieces and providing solid repairs, Mimi's Jewelry is a warm, welcoming establishment with honest work at reasonable pricing. My family trusts them with our most important, sentimental pieces. Thank you to David and his staff!! We are lifers!!
I am not a jewelry person. I begrudgingly wear a fitness tracker ring because it's less cumbersome than the sort that goes on your wrist. But I found myself going to Mimi's because while traveling through the area for a wedding, my mother said she needed to replace a watch battery. I made some calls.
At first, I was a bit put off that when I inquired about a battery replacement, i was told I'd have to leave the watch over night. But the price was right and Mimi's location was next to where I'd be so I decided to go in to hand off the watch. Once in the store, my mom resisted handing off her watch and asked if someone could just take the time to replace the battery on the spot. We were told all battery replacements take place at the end of the day when the person does them all at once. Fine. We could pick up the watch the next day.
The woman who was on duty was very nice.
The next day, we came in to pick up the watch on our way to the wedding. The woman working (different than the day before) asked for my mom's receipt. She didn't have it handy so the woman looked for it by her name. All in all, it was a short, pleasant transaction.
We were charged $15 for the battery and labor, but given a $1.50 discount as new customers. That was a nice surprise.
In the car, my mom said to me, "I really liked the person who served us." I laughed, saying, "All she did was hand you your watch, mom." But my mom said, "Yes, but she was kind and she smiled with even with her eyes. Her voice was confident and respectful. She made you feel attended to." I couldn't disagree.
And for that kind service with a smile, I offer five stars.
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.
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!
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.
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
I don't even know how to start off this review. I'm so happy I found this local family owned jeweler. I was looking for a place to sell my gold coins and also to resize my wedding band. I sent Dave an email and he responded very fast. Dave greeted me, and was friendly and was straight down to business. Dave gave me the most competitive price out of all the other jewelry buyers in the area.
Just ultimately beyond happy with their services. This is a true family business that makes you feel more like a long time friend than just a customer. They've got a great rating for a reason. 5 stars all the way! 1000% recommending this place to friends and family and anyone that will listen. Thank you Mimi's Jewelry for all the help and I'll definitely be back in the future.
David is AMAZING! My fiancée and I just recently got engaged and got our sets of rings through Mimi's. David went above and beyond the entire experience! At first we thought we wanted moissanite instead of diamonds for the center stones and David was able to get us excellent quality lab diamonds for the fraction of the cost! He worked around the clock with my fiancée and was able to adjust everything she asked for, making multiple renders and a wax mold of the rings to see in advance. They came out better than we could have imagined! 10/10 recommend. David is our jeweler for life!
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.
I recently took a locket in to have the photos added. The job was completed quickly and with precision. It was a small job but very important to me to have the work done right. The customer service was outstanding. The representative I worked with was careful and attentive to what I was looking to achieve. I got the feeling there is no job to big or too small and that all orders are treated with utmost respect in terms of showing care to the customer.
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.
