Truthful Appraisals

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.

 

Selling Unwanted Watches and Jewelry

If you ever needed extra cash and you knew you had beautiful, yet unwanted, pieces taking up room in your jewelry box, you may need to find trustworthy jewelry buyers in Newport Beach.

It could be an out-of-style gift from an older aunt or a meaningful present from a relationship that didn’t work out. Either way, it is probably worth something, and any bit helps to put food on the table!

Bring your unwanted jewelry to our greater Newport Beach showroom and get paid for an item that otherwise would never see the light of day. If you need cash for gold Newport Beach residents know that Mimi’s will give you a great deal. Now you can take that cash and apply it towards something that will make you happy.

Our Client’s Love Us!

  •   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 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 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.

      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.

  •   They are super nice!  David gave me a very fair price for my wedding/engagement ring set. I would highly recommend them for buying or selling.

      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.

    Highly recommend

      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.
