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.

Due to the near-perfect appraisals conducted by our on-site, certified gemologist and master jeweler, we are fortunate enough to provide the Newport Beach area’s most lucrative payouts on unwanted pieces, including watches, gold, and other jewelry. And, we pay you in cash! So, if you want to sell jewelry in Newport Beach, Mimi’s is the place to go.

      I was in to fix three chains and to add magnet clasps to them.  Such a lovely experience with Kat.  She took such good care of me and treated me like I was spending a lot of money (I wasn't).   However, when I do purchase it will definitely be at Mimi's and hopefully with Kat!

      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!!

  •   I have a 20 year old Tag Heuer SEL that needed a battery change and one of the links was broken.

    However, I live in Georgia. Quite a ways from California. However I had heard of his care and attentiveness to customers' property and no matter what it is, treats it as his own.

    I sent him the watch with my spare link I had, he replaced the battery, seal, repaired the link and then polished the watch to where it looked BRAND NEW once again!

    Within days it arrived to my surprise better than I sent it to him!

    5 stars Mr. Truong! You earned it!

      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!

      THE BEST!

    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!

      I'm so thrilled with my custom ring from Mimi's. David took so much time and effort to listen to exactly what I wanted. He was able to capture a timeless piece by incorporating my late Mom's wedding band and diamonds into a brand new piece. Thank you so much David and Mimi's...I can't wait to visit again soon.

      They went above and beyond with this ring! Thank you so much for explaining the quality, choices and making this special gift for my husband to give me. David is a wealth of knowledge and always makes you feel comfortable. Looking forward to sharing with everyone that asks about my ring where I got it.

  •   David was absolutely amazing to work with. I was very nervous about sending someone my engagement ring, but he was able to custom fit a wedding band..and it looks stunning. He was able to take an idea from a photo and make it even better. We also sent David a diamond that was my grandmothers and had him make a pendant for me. It turned out absolutely stunning. Excellant communication. Amazing quality.

      Can't say enough about David and his staff.  They've been my go-to for many years because of their customer care and quality service.  I had my wife's engagement ring custom designed by them which was an amazing project using material from my Grandmother's old ring and collaboration with her two close friends.  David was very patient during this process and his professional guidance was priceless.

    Recently, we had an "accident" with the ring while a friend was trying it on.  It got stuck to the point that we had to cut it off.  The ring, not the finger.  I shipped it to David (we now live in Nor Cal) and it was fixed in less than a week.  Wife said it looks even better than before and was so happy.  I highly recommend 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.
