Jewelry Service and Works Offered By Mimi’s
At Mimi’s, we offer a wide variety of services for all your jewelry needs. Whether you are looking for custom design, repairs, an appraisal, or you are willing to sell your own pieces, we are the place that meets all your expectations. We can customize, adjust, repair, mend, or restore any piece to your liking, and we are always interested in providing fair appraisals and paying top dollar for unwanted precious metals, gems, and jewels. Here are just some of the top-notch services we provide:
For Accurate and Fair Appraisals
Appraisals are of extraordinary importance when it comes to fine jewelry. After all, you will most likely wish to insure your valuable pieces and that will require a ballpark value for each. They may be required in matters of estates and probate, as well as during a divorce or a personal liquidation or bankruptcy.
For Repairs, Refinishing, and Resizing
Many times, we have lovely family heirlooms that are passed down in families, and while the intent is a thoughtful one, it is highly unlikely that each lady will have the same size finger. For situations like this, we have jewelers onsite that can adjust your ring to the accurate size. You don’t want to constantly worry about it falling off, but you certainly don’t want it to get stuck, either. Stretching or adding a bridge is simple for us, and cutting a ring down a size is even easier.
We can also restore all fine jewelry and antiques to their original glory. Are your stones a bit loose, or has your metal lost its usual sheen? These are simple fixes for us and we work with all stones and jewelry types.
Watch Repair and Battery Replacement
Watchband resizing, battery replacement, and most repair work can be conducted while you wait. If your watch needs a repair overhaul, you can leave it with us and we will be sure to get to the root of its malfunction and get it ticking again in no time flat.
In addition to link removal and battery replacement, we also offer polishing, water sealing, refurbishing, and the replacement of damaged parts. We can even buff out watch face scratches or completely replace your band for a cosmetic change. We service all types of timepieces, including vintage watches.
For Creative Custom Design and Style
Do you want a perfect, personalized piece of jewelry to tell someone just how much he or she means to you? Well, if you can dream it up, our master jewelers can create it for you! We want to be your one-stop shop for all your signature pendants, earrings, watches, bracelets, rings, and cuff links. Our master jewelers, gemologists, goldsmiths, and other fine jewelry in-house experts will craft your marvel all while you wait, if you choose.
Purchasing Unwanted Jewelry and Valuables
We probably all have forgotten jewelry sitting on our dressers or hidden in drawers that we no longer care for or remind us of something (or someone) that we would rather forget. There are probably also a few items that you have either inherited or received as gifts that are not quite your style, and they are also hidden in the depths of your jewelry box. Well, these pieces are not doing any good sitting where they are. Why not sell them at a fair price and use the money for something that you actually want?

Our Client’s Love Us!
Great jewelry store! I came in for a resizing. It was done in about a week and the work was great. They texted me with updates on my order, nice added service. Good selection from what I saw in there. Will definitely check it next time I'm shopping for jewelry!
Mimi's Jewelry is a first rate business. I had my wife's engagement ring and wedding bands made here and was treated beyond fairly. I got a beautiful custom ring that took into account the very specific qualities of the diamond I had and my wife's very small hands. It came out stunning and my wife gets comments all the time on the ring.
Dave, the owner, kept me apprised of the progress of the ring throughout the entire process and finished my ring well ahead of my deadline. He's also got impeccable taste so it was safe to leave most of the decisions up to him...no way I could have designed a ring better myself.
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 came in here to price a gold bracelet, in hopes to sell it here. The man looked at my gold bracelet and offered me a price (way below what I wanted). He said it was 14k gold by only lookin at the lobster clasp. I informed him the clasp was 14k gold and the chain was 18k gold before hand. He then tested it and told me that it was not 18k gold by the acid test. I knew it was 18k gold the entire time, but just to be positive I went down the street to another jeweler and sure enough it was 18k gold. I was about to be low balled. I am writing this review to let other people do they're research before coming into a place like this.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
I had an awesome experience with David at Mimi's Jewelry. I went in wanting to sell my old wedding rings. David took his time taking a look at my jewelry and even took one of the diamonds out to weigh it. He offered me a fair price and I was super happy with the care and time he took to make sure I was getting the best quote for my items. They are a local family and it was great to be able to support a small local business.
