I would not buy my jewelry from anyone other than Simone at Vinca! From the moment you walk into the store you are greeted with a great atmosphere. They are so personable and make you feel comfortable. They are attentive, but never pressure you. Moreover, they have great pricing on their jewelry, especially for the quality that you receive! Simone and Thieu have taken their time in sitting down with us, and finding or designing the perfect piece of jewelry. The options are limitless, for example, I've liked a ring but preferred a different stone, different metal, the shape of the ring tweaked, mount of the diamond different, or any variation. They really listen to what you want. There hasn't been anything so far that I have asked, that Simone has not been able to make! The jewelry Simone makes is unique and made with the best diamonds. It is always elegant and delicate in appearance. It is evident that Simone does not ever make a piece of jewelry he is not proud of. You can tell Simone's work right away when looking at a ring. Furthermore, I have never had any problems, defects, or issues with any of the jewelry. I have never had a piece made that did not come out perfect. I can't tell you how much my fiance and I LOVE our engagement/wedding rings! They are amazing! We have bought several pieces of jewelry from Vinca, and as we like to say, "There are now generations of Vinca jewelry within my family"!

We have the most memorable, unique and special memories of picking out our engagement ring at Meierotto’s. Emily took the time to get to know me and my fiancée. She actively listened and brought out settings and diamonds that suited me and my taste. She caught the essence of my personality and values. It amazed me how she keyed into my likes and dislikes, getting to know me as a person and us as a couple. I ended up choosing a band setting that I never would have picked out for myself. Yet, when I put it on, my fiancée and I both said “this is the one!” at the same time! The entire staff was helpful, warm and friendly. Emily is an excellent ambassador for their long standing family tradition of quality, customer service and facilitating wonderful memories for such a special time in our lives. Thank you so much Emily and Meierotto’s! I highly recommend Meierotto’s to any couple getting married or anyone making a jewelry purchase for a special life changing experience and unparalleled customer service.
This is a great local retailer that has been around for many years. Every jewelry repair or high-end purchase I have done has been here. They take the time to educate you about stones, and will spend hours upon hours to help you decide. They are not a quick in and out store. You choose the price, they show you your product options. The way jewelry selling should be. They even will repair Movado watches which are suppose to be sent to Movado. We spent about 9 hours total in 2 days on a wedding ring. Staff is friendly, but they are a well reputable dealer and the wait for service may be a little longer than liked, but well worth the wait. Thousands of diamonds along with other stones and settings as well. If they don't have what you want, they offer to make it for you. 2 yrs int. free layaway works great. You can visit your product anyday and not get slack for showing up to not buy more.
My boyfriend and I have been desperately searching everywhere for the perfect engagement ring. I have one stipulation, that it be a cocktail ring and look identical to one I found previously. When I walked in to Vinca today Simon greeted me and was as sweet as can be!! He wasn't pushy pr aggressive, and he encouraged me to simply "take your time and look at everything". It was so refreshing to not have someone breathing down my neck the entire time. While he knew I wasn't purchasing today he still brought me a glass of wine and treated me like gold!! What an incredible place- I cannot wait to own my ring made by this wonderfully kind man!!
I recently bought a camera lens on eBay from these folks. UPS trashed the shipment (as usual - NEVER SHIP UPS!!!) and has been (IMHO) totally inept in handling the problem. The A Plus folks there have kept a steady stream of emails and phone calls coming to get this straightened out for me and make it right. It's rare to find folks who really and truly make customer service a priority. A Plus is a real gem and sets the standard very high for customer service and square dealing. I only wish they were in Lexington (where I live) so that I could shop with them more.
Vinca is a must visit. Simone and Tu can read quickly what your individual liking is in fine jewelry and guide you in finding that special item you desire. Vinca has an excellent selection of fine jewelry complete with hard to find loose stones that Simone can design into a masterpiece of your own. If it is fun, yet nice casual jewelry your are looking for, you can find it here. I have purchased several stock items and have worked with Simone in designing some unique pieces as well. Do stop in, you will be amazed at the selection and service Vinca provides!
My husband bought my 2nd wedding ring - a 10 year anniversary gift at Vinca's. Then later he had a pair of earrings made to match. My son and his now wife had her engagement and wedding rings custome designed and made by Simon. as well as my son's ring. Now it's my daughter's turn and her engagement ring came from Vinca's. Guess where she and her fiance are shopping for the wedding bands! Simon, Elizabeth (his wife) and their manager, Tu all provide excellent service. The store's inventory is exquisite, with something for nearly everyone.
I recently bought an engagement ring from Brian Swirk and cannot describe how impressed I was with not only the quality, but also the personal attention he paid to making sure my experience was a positive one. He is extremely easy to work with and even followed up with me to see how my proposal went. I had shopped around at several of the "chain" jewelry stores but am so glad I went with Swirk Jewelry. I highly recommend this to any guy who truly is looking for a custom engagement ring but one that also doesn't have to break the bank.
Meierotto's is the best place to shop for any jewelry, china, sterling silver pieces and coins! I have bought many items from them including my wedding rings, watches, necklaces and earrings. They have the best and widest selection in town of David Yurman and John Hardy pieces. I have even emailed them a picture of an item I wanted to buy on vacation and they beat the duty free price oversees!! (on a Roberto Coin necklace!) The item was at my home the day after I arrived from vacation!
We love this store and love the fact it has been family owned for over 100 years. The people are very professional and friendly and the store itself is comfortable and intimate. Not like any other jewelry store in Kansas City. It has an old world feel yet it is upscale and modern. The jewelry is very unique and high class. These people know what they are doing. Highly recommend Swirk Jewelry!!
