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.

Our Client’s Love Us!
Such a wonderful family business. I went in to have a necklace designed using a stone that has been in my family, and my youngest son fell in love with the gems. One of their specialist spent just as much time with my son as they did with me. They helped him design a ring within his budget (he just turned 11). We are both thrilled! They are so thoughtful and caring, and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Mimi's Jewelry!
This review is long overdue, but better late than never! Mimi's Jewelry sincerely deserves every bit of praise and 5 stars given to them! I've known David at Mimi's Jewelry for 5 years now from when a friend of mine was proposed to with a gorgeous engagement ring designed by the amazing David. Since then, I've commissioned David to create jewelry for myself and have even referred other friends to him over the years. The first time I collaborated with David, I brought him images that I found online and asked if he could bring the designs and my ideas to life - he exceeded all expectations! The dainty ring and delicate diamond necklace he created for me were absolutely stunning, but his professionalism and genuine kindness turned me into a loyal client. The second time I met with David, I sold jewelry to him and it was such an easy and comfortable transaction. Last year, my girlfriends and I collaborated with David to turn an old sentimental diamond bracelet into matching friendship anklets for us girls, and the whole process was such a breeze from start to finish. We were thrilled with our new matching friendship anklets, but even happier with the overall experience. I recently needed to have a watch resized in time for new job interviews and sent David a quick message requesting to come by after work; he responded swiftly and even remembered the usual time I'm off of work!! If that doesn't show how impressive David's attention to detail AND commitment to client service is, I don't know what else to tell you! David's professionalism, warm personality, and beautiful designs are impeccable - he will wow you with his creations and keep you coming back with his outstanding service. The effort he puts into his work on top of maintaining relationships with his clients are truly unmatched; I don't know how many other ways I can emphasize this. Thank you for being your awesome self all these years, David! I can't wait for you to design my engagement ring one day (when I'm ready LOL)!
I reached out to Mimi's via Yelp. I needed my girlfriends ring repaired and cleaned. I was hoping for it to be done before the 14th knowing well that it was highly unlikely. However, they achieved this and more by having it fixed and cleaned incredibly well on the 13th.
I really appreciate the effort and care put into the ring.
They were informative and professional with a welcoming atmosphere. I will definitely be returning for all my jewelry needs.
Pictures are before and after.
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!
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.
Recently, my sister and I wanted to have my late mother's wedding ring appraised. We took it to several jewelers to be certain we got a fair and honest price. Like most people, we know very little about the jewelry business and were afraid of being ripped-off especially since it was our mother's ring. After a thorough inspection, not only did David at Mimi's Jewelers offer us the highest price but he invited us to be involved in every step of the process. The diamond was extremely old (maybe a century) and he needed to see how much of it was salvageable since there were numerous cracks. In the end, we received more than we expected (he offered 3X more than another jeweler) and we were more than satisfied. On top of this, he was patient and knowledgable. Thanks to David, Mimi's is our new favorite jewelry store!
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!!
They did a beautiful job taking 3 very different rings and combining into one beautiful, delicate ring. Wonderful service, absolutely worked with us until we found the design we liked.
My girlfriend Liesel recommended this jeweler . I am so glad I checked Mimi's out normally I don't go anywhere except to my jeweler but I didn't want to drive down south so since she highly recommended him I figured I would go check him out and I'm so glad I did. I will definitely go back .
This is my number one, go-to place for getting my jewelry fixed or resized. I found them through yelp because of the great reviews, and have never been disappointed, they've done an amazing job every time I've gone to them, even with my most delicate pieces.
They also very honest about any limitations. I brought in a ring once long ago that had a silver finishing to it that was particular to the jeweler who made it, and told me they wouldn't be able to replicate that finish and therefore wouldn't be able to resize it for me. They are also super knowledgeable about different styles and can even give you know more information about vintage jewelry.
This jewelry store is my favorite in OC and I'll definitely continue to go to them for all of my jewelry needs! Thank you, David and staff!!
I got married in February and the stone in my ring has been loose since March and i haven't been able to wear it!! I looked around and inquired to a few places about getting my stone tightened. Some places were worried to even touch my ring since its a morganite stone. Mimi's was confident they could tighten my stone and was very fair in price since i was a first time customer. In less than 1 week my ring was finished and they did an amazing job!! I will absolutely be using Mimi's as my go to jeweler! The staff is passionate about their work and their customer service is amazing too! I'd personally give more stars but yelp only allows 5.
I picked up my ring today and WOW- I was completely blown away and speechless! I can't stop looking at my ring. It is absolutely perfect. I went to David to "upgrade" the center diamond on my wedding ring for our 25th anniversary. He exceeded all of my expectations. First, we scheduled a meeting so I could tell him exactly what I was looking for. David is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and he is also friendly and easy to talk to. His communication was excellent throughout the process. He is accessible through phone, email and text. I felt very safe and trusted him with my wedding ring. On the day of pick up, I was emailed an appraisal with all the proper certifications which I was able to send to our insurance for immediate coverage. Everything was seamless throughout this whole process and I could not be happier!!
