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.

Well, 203 reviews, all 5 star. Honestly I don't even know why I am writing this LOL! I have been trusting Mimi's for some odd small resizing and repairs for the last ten years or so. I love that this is a family run family owned business and the team is still here for so long. That kind of employee tenure says a lot. The storefront is beautiful and easily accessible, and the store is well-lit and inviting with a dazzling display of items which range from the dainty to the majestic. So there's something for everyone. But I moved out of California to Idaho and I found my way back to California and commissioned the technicians at Mimi's to remake my engagement ring setting. I was given a very reasonable fee and turnover time, along with overnight fedex service to my home. The CAD/CAM draft sent to me was spot on accurate and proportional, and they even sent me some stunning photography of their finished work I can include in the updated insurance paperwork. I think buying their jewelry is a wonderful experience, but coming to them for a custom job requires special attention and expertise. I wanted to merge a wedding band and engagement ring made with all princess cut stones and I had a really beautiful, really quite unique, result that I am so happy with and that I love to look at on my hand. It is also very comfortable and effortless to wear now whereas the former set up not as much, and that was really one of my top priorities. If I am willing to travel over 2,000 miles to visit family and wait to schedule this work done here, then this review is legit!! If you love jewelry, if you have legacy jewelry, or want to create custom pieces, repair or modify anything, you can trust Mimi's team to help your vision come true. I actually have two people who I have only ever entrusted with my jewelry, and one was a patient of mine whose family I treated - and once I believe she retired, Mimi's. Having a personal relationship with a jeweler is important, I think, because so often jewelry has significant sentimental value.
Dropped off one pearl earring just to get a simple back replacement. Good thing I kept the other pearl earring in my possession. I trusted this jewelry place and did not throughly micro inspect my pearl. When I got home I noticed that it was a completely different pearl than the one I gave them plus it had scratches and dents on it. Please inspect your jewelry. This people keep yours and give you back a shitty replacement. Now I need to make the drive and go back to that shop.
Wonderful customer service. Had my wedding ring repaired. My 33 year old ring looks brand sparkling new-can't stop looking at it! Mimis also re created my moms wedding ring after melting it down & using her original diamonds-more beautiful than I could ever have imagined! Highly recommend them. Will bring all my jewelry needs to Mimis.
David was super helpful with resizing my fiancée's ring. Contacted him on yelp and responded very quick, had an appointment, and finished the ring within 3 hours (usually people ask for a couple of days) with his very reasonable pricing. Before leaving, I asked if I could check the stone under the microscope and he let me. Thank you, David! I highly recommend this Jewelry.
This place is just awesome. I went last Saturday and talked to Mimi about making a ring for my husband and doing some work on my wedding ring. They did an amazing job on both rings. Prices were very reasonable and the quality of the work was outstanding. Everyone who works there is helpful and nice.
The first time I visited this establishment I noticed how personable the owner and staff were to the customers who came in. The owner actually addressed each customer by name. He actually knew each person's name as they walked in. Aside from doing fabulous work in terms of design, making and cleaning my jewelry, which would be expected, their customer service goes beyond what I'd ever expect. I am now one of those customers who walks in and is addressed by my name. It feels like home. Thank you to all of your staff who has created an environment that makes me want to come back and refer others to your business. Keep up the great work.
Professional, kind and quick. They purchased some gold jewelry from me. It was an easy and fair process. They also cleaned a necklace of mine for free.
We got our ring appraised here and David was not only professional but also personal and knowledgeable. Appears to be really honest which is critical in any business but especially in the jewelry business when things and value could be more subjective.
He also does a lot for the community. I always see him volunteer or involved with school events. If you have any jewelry needs then this is your place.
I brought in two rings and asked David to resize one and reset the other and also engrave both. David did a wonderful job, both rings looked gorgeous when I got them back! I got a text message notification when they were done, which was a nice touch.
David is truly an artist!! I went to him because my wedding rings were starting to change shape due to the bands being platinum, which is very soft and malleable. He immediately came up with a design and drew it out right in front of me. I fell in love with it immediately!! He estimated 4-6 weeks to get it back due to how busy he has been, and he got it back to me almost 4 weeks to the day!! The diamonds sparkled as if they were brand new, and I have been married for 11 years!! He is so honest and knowledgeable, he is a master of his craft! I highly recommend Mimi's as it is a local family owned business and David will not disappoint!!
