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!
They are super nice! David gave me a very fair price for my wedding/engagement ring set. I would highly recommend them for buying or selling.
I recently worked with David and he gave a very fair and honest price for my mother-in-laws Rolex. The process is always straight forward and easy. David is a consultant professional and is upfront about the realistic value for such pieces. I live in Illinois, but quickly became comfortable doing business with Mimi's Jewelry. I highly recommend this business!
I don't even know how to start off this review. I'm so happy I found this local family owned jeweler. I was looking for a place to sell my gold coins and also to resize my wedding band. I sent Dave an email and he responded very fast. Dave greeted me, and was friendly and was straight down to business. Dave gave me the most competitive price out of all the other jewelry buyers in the area.
Just ultimately beyond happy with their services. This is a true family business that makes you feel more like a long time friend than just a customer. They've got a great rating for a reason. 5 stars all the way! 1000% recommending this place to friends and family and anyone that will listen. Thank you Mimi's Jewelry for all the help and I'll definitely be back in the future.
I highly recommend Mimi's Jewelry. Not only was the customer service superb, the craftsmanship phenomenal. David really went out of his way to help me restore my Grandmothers wedding ring. Having recently passed, there was a lot of sentimental attachment to a very old ring that needed a lot of work. But David and team were up to the challenge! I couldn't be more pleased with the work; I look at the ring and smile very time! Thank you, the results really speak for themselves.
I have had the pleasure of customizing three pieces of jewelry with David at Mimi's over the past few years. Each time, the staff of Mimi's has provided exceptional service. The store atmosphere is very warm and inviting, I have always felt welcomed. The staff makes your experience so special and were interested in hearing the reason behind the pieces I wanted designed. Each piece of jewelry came out exactly as I wanted designed, with some minor tweaks to one piece that David was very happy to accommodate. I have recommended this store to several people who have already been very happy with the outcome of their final jewelry pieces as well. I highly recommend Mimi's Jewelry.
I purchased my engagement ring from NK Jewelers in Fountain Valley but when one of the diamonds fell off, I brought it back to them. Instead of trying to help me get the stone replaced, they tried to sell me a new setting for $1200. They told me it probably wouldn't be possible to replace because they don't make this style anymore and it would cost too much to replace so it would be easier to buy another ring. I wanted time to consider my options so after leaving NK, I went to Mimi's. Mimi's sent it in for a quote and it came back at $280. They replaced the diamond in less than 2 weeks! Mimi's provided great service, honesty, and reasonably priced. I'm buying my jewelry from Mimi's from now on.
David at Mimi's was super honest, he quoted me the highest on buying my ex wife's wedding ring back. I went to the original builder of the ring and he offered less and wasn't as honest and upfront as David was. Will for sure be coming back for life and have earned my business for the future.
Besides making BEAUTIFUL pieces and providing solid repairs, Mimi's Jewelry is a warm, welcoming establishment with honest work at reasonable pricing. My family trusts them with our most important, sentimental pieces. Thank you to David and his staff!! We are lifers!!
I am not a jewelry person. I begrudgingly wear a fitness tracker ring because it's less cumbersome than the sort that goes on your wrist. But I found myself going to Mimi's because while traveling through the area for a wedding, my mother said she needed to replace a watch battery. I made some calls.
At first, I was a bit put off that when I inquired about a battery replacement, i was told I'd have to leave the watch over night. But the price was right and Mimi's location was next to where I'd be so I decided to go in to hand off the watch. Once in the store, my mom resisted handing off her watch and asked if someone could just take the time to replace the battery on the spot. We were told all battery replacements take place at the end of the day when the person does them all at once. Fine. We could pick up the watch the next day.
The woman who was on duty was very nice.
The next day, we came in to pick up the watch on our way to the wedding. The woman working (different than the day before) asked for my mom's receipt. She didn't have it handy so the woman looked for it by her name. All in all, it was a short, pleasant transaction.
We were charged $15 for the battery and labor, but given a $1.50 discount as new customers. That was a nice surprise.
In the car, my mom said to me, "I really liked the person who served us." I laughed, saying, "All she did was hand you your watch, mom." But my mom said, "Yes, but she was kind and she smiled with even with her eyes. Her voice was confident and respectful. She made you feel attended to." I couldn't disagree.
And for that kind service with a smile, I offer five stars.
