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!
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 am super pleased with the level of customer service this shop provided. They went out of their way to take care of my needs. I highly recommend them. Thanks Mimi's!
Through the generations in my family, a beautiful black onyx and diamond ring has been handed down and unfortunately, I was not on the receiving end of this spectacular piece of jewelry. I took the design of the ring and reached out to David at Mimi's and asked him to create the same piece of jewelry but in the form of a necklace/pendant. The necklace is far more beautiful than the ring by a landslide! The careful thought, the collaboration, the attention to detail - I love everything about this pendant and am beyond grateful to David and his team for the impeccable attention to detail as they delivered a spectacular piece of jewelry beyond my expectations. This is not the first time that I've approached Mimi's to design a piece of jewelry for me and always, always I am beyond impressed with their kindness, professionalism, guidance, and simply - the entire process is flawless from start to finish. Check out the pictures that I've attached - I absolutely love this necklace (as well as my rings!). Thank you, David and the Mimi's team for another awesome experience!
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!!
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.
Mimi's is family Owen and they treat their clients like family. Super friendly and very personable. My husband bought my ring here and they took and now take very good care of us!
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!
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!!
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.
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.
Had a gold ring I never wear, and rather sell it than have it sit around. I originally took it to one of those buy gold shops, and didn't feel comfortable with their evaluation, and also felt they were low balling me. I spoke with David at Mimi's and can tell he knew what he was talking about, and gave me a very fair deal. He's a super nice guy, and honest. Thanks!
