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 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!!
This is were my fiancée got my engagement ring. I'm absolutely in love with it. i had to write a review of my own. My fiancée told me he had the greatest service here and never once felt pressured whatsoever. he said David was so so helpful in every possible way! I get soo many compliments on my ring! it's so white! so shiny! so Perfect! completely obsessed. Will definitely be getting both of our wedding bands here as well! pictures will never do justice. but here's a few.(:
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!
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!
Many thanks to Mimi, David and the team at Mimi's Jewelry. They have seen my vision for heirloom pieces on three occasions . David and Mimi created beautiful, quality pieces for all four of our children, daughters-in-love and me. Special memories are priceless and the team at Mimi's gets that.
I was planning on proposing to my girlfriend and knew exactly what kind of ring I wanted. I had the center stone but needed someone to create the setting I had in mind. He was willing to work with my very accelerated timeline - I needed the ring quickly because of a sudden opportunity to travel in Europe, and I wanted to use that opportunity to propose to my girlfriend while traveling there together in April. I needed the ring quickly and he made it happen! He was very receptive to my questions and was able to perfectly create what I wanted, with great communication and updates along the way.
My now-fiancée and I truly love the ring and we are both so happy with David's work. It's better than we imagined and the work is clearly very high quality. Notably, his French pavé cut is superior to the ones we had looked at online and in other stores. The side stones are beautifully brilliant. Even a couple months later my fiancée can't stop staring at the ring, and she always gets compliments on it. We will recommend Mimi's Jewelry to our friends and will certainly return to him in the future for any other jewelry work, including our wedding bands.
Great, honest, personable family neighborhood business. They know their craft, their customer's wants and needs and do beautiful work!
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)!
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.
Great 1st experience at Mimi's and it will not be my last. Don't let other places tell you they can't resize a diamond eternity band. The owner, David, worked his magic and was able to size up my band. Top notch work, great price, and friendly service.
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'm giving Mimi's a 5 star rating, only because they don't have an option for 10 stars. I could not have been more pleased with the work they did for me! I wanted to have a ring re-set, and I had very specific ideas in mind. David listened to me, understood what I wanted, and gave me some very good design advice. The result is, in my opinion, absolutely stunning. It is EXACTLY what I wanted. I'm so happy I went to Mimi's Jewelry, and plan to have more work done there in the future. Can't say enough about their work and customer service!
