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!
We were looking for a trusted local jeweler and everyone in the community recommended Mimi's. Sure enough, the service was fantastic. They have a good selection of diamond and gemstone pieces in the store, but they also design their own custom pieces.
I was referred to Mimi's from a family member and I am so thankful for the referral. First time in I was greeted and treated with so much respect. David was amazing and I requested a custom piece. He took the time to go over what I wanted and he worked up a rendering. The piece would take about a month to make. I received constant updates through out the process. When I got the piece, I was blown away. Great work. Great quality. Great prices. Great customer service. Great place that I will be going from now on for any jewelry needs.
We went to visit David for our engagement and wedding bands and both my husband and I are blown away with the professionalism and quality with David and Mimi's. My fiancé had my engagement band custom made and it was exactly what I wanted. I cannot recommend Mimi's enough and can't wait to go back for more jewelry.
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!
My sister's boyfriend and I were referred to this local shop by my mother after feeling a little lost and overwhelmed after a couple trips to DTLA's jewelry district. David was so helpful reassuring us that he could find a diamond with the specifications we wanted within our budget instead of settling. He also recommended the hidden halo and prongs that would make the stone stand out the most. He can make the same styles that you find on any popular Instagram site here in the OC, and you don't need to drive all the way to LA. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a custom designed ring to come here for the best quality and price, and you get to support a local family owned business! 🙂
Dropped off one pearl earring just to get a simple back replacement. Good thing I kept the other pearl earring in my possession. I trusted this jewelry place and did not throughly micro inspect my pearl. When I got home I noticed that it was a completely different pearl than the one I gave them plus it had scratches and dents on it. Please inspect your jewelry. This people keep yours and give you back a shitty replacement. Now I need to make the drive and go back to that shop.
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!!
Professional, kind and quick. They purchased some gold jewelry from me. It was an easy and fair process. They also cleaned a necklace of mine for free.
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.
Always kind and caring, this is my favorite neighborhood jeweler! Great work and very honest. Highly recommend!
David was super helpful with resizing my fiancée's ring. Contacted him on yelp and responded very quick, had an appointment, and finished the ring within 3 hours (usually people ask for a couple of days) with his very reasonable pricing. Before leaving, I asked if I could check the stone under the microscope and he let me. Thank you, David! I highly recommend this Jewelry.
