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.

David and team are the best in the biz. Needed a ring resized, and it was the easiest process. Super communicative over both email and text, and the work was completed very quickly. I'm now in the process of designing another ring for my wife, and the process is a breeze. I don't want to work with anyone else!
Came to Mini's Jewelry looking for a specific style of ring to propose to my girlfriend. Mimi designed the ring in Solidworks/CAD before even starting the ring which I thought was really cool as we could make design iterations before finalizing what the ring could look like. Mimi delivered a beautiful ring in a super reasonable time and for a good price. I was very happy with my decision to go through this shop and especially with Mimi. Even though this isnt the biggest or priciest ring, I felt like she gave me all the time and attention in the world to get the details right. Thank you so much for the wonderful ring and experience!
Mimi's Jewelry is a member of good standing with the Fountain Valley Chamber of Commerce. David's service is top notch and will find the perfect piece of jewelry that you are looking for. Can't recommend this enough. Make this place of business your first choice when it comes purchasing jewelry.
We needed to fix a diamond wedding ring and thought this would be the perfect time to update it, we had a few ideas we wanted to incorporate to the ring. David worked with us and helped recreate a beautiful ring. He went above and beyond our vision. The final result is a timeless everlasting work of art, a custom piece that my husband and I very much appreciate.
Thank you Mimi's Jewelry!
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.
David at Mimi's worked closely with my fiancé to design and make the most beautiful emerald-cut engagement ring for me. I love its elegance and receive compliments on it all of the time. I love it so much that when I decided to have a ring made for my fiancé, the first thing I did was call David. He was wonderful and patient throughout the whole process. He designed and crafted an exquisitely masculine ring. All of this is even more amazing as we live in Reno, NV and he is in Southern California. We will continue to collaborate with David on any future customs designed jeweler. His staff were very helpful and facilitated all of the shipping and paperwork, including insurance documents. David is an brilliant designer and craftsman. I give Mimi's a perfect score for exceeding all expectations!!
This is were my fiancée got my engagement ring. I'm absolutely in love with it. i had to write a review of my own. My fiancée told me he had the greatest service here and never once felt pressured whatsoever. he said David was so so helpful in every possible way! I get soo many compliments on my ring! it's so white! so shiny! so Perfect! completely obsessed. Will definitely be getting both of our wedding bands here as well! pictures will never do justice. but here's a few.(:
Super place to do business. I purchased a mens wedding ring and David was very helpful and gave me a great price. Service was outstanding and you won't meet a nicer guy.
I will be back when it is time for my wifes anniversary ring.
I love this place! I have been here twice. I don't live very close but I do the drive because their pricing is great and they are very trustworthy!
One time I went here to fix my Tiffany's necklace. Tiffany's charges about $60 to fix and Mimi's quoted me a fraction of the price. They also ADDED. Silver to my necklace so it wouldn't break in the future. WOW! Talk about above and beyond.
The second time I went it was to repair 4 of my old watches. They said it would take 1 day and I could pick it up. My watch was missing a pin and they didn't charge me for it because I had so many watches fixed by them! Very kind of them.
They are great with customer service and they do reminder phone calls or text messages to pick things up or let you know if they are ready.
I will definitely be back!
I'm giving Mimi's a 5 star rating, only because they don't have an option for 10 stars. I could not have been more pleased with the work they did for me! I wanted to have a ring re-set, and I had very specific ideas in mind. David listened to me, understood what I wanted, and gave me some very good design advice. The result is, in my opinion, absolutely stunning. It is EXACTLY what I wanted. I'm so happy I went to Mimi's Jewelry, and plan to have more work done there in the future. Can't say enough about their work and customer service!
This was my second time using Mimi's for my jewelry repair and i am so pleased with both experiences with them. They are very helpful and extremely polite! The repairs were done in a very timely manor and they polished it to make it look like new againI would recommend Mimi's for all your jewelry needs! Thank you Mimi's for taking such wonderful care of my jewelry and being so helpful!
