Celebrating 40 Years of Excellence

Their son, Tyler, worked through high school and college and gained a keen understanding of all aspects of the business. Three other children, Emily, Jenny and Ted, joined the business over the years and now have each taken on unique roles.  Despite their children taking on larger roles and responsibilities, Carol and Dennis are still at the store every day.

In 2017, we moved to our new home on Armour Road in North Kansas City.  Our new location features a convenient location just 2 miles north of downtown Kansas City and directly off I-35, boutiques for Rolex and David Yurman, and a bright and refreshing showroom featuring the largest selection of jewelry, diamonds and watches in the entire city. 

There are even people in the jewelry industry who visit our store and insist they have never seen a jewelry store so vibrant and busy—at almost any time of the day or week.  Customers routinely ask if we are having a huge sale. “Why are you so busy today?”, they ask.  In fact, we have never had a sale.

When you don’t mark your prices way up, you don’t need sales to offer great prices everyday. And because we are the largest store in the area, we get great deals and unique jewelry items that other stores don’t have available.

When a customer does come through our doors for the first time, they immediately recognize that it isn’t a typical jewelry store.  We offer a level of service that is unparalleled.  And we don’t mean showering guests with imported sparkling water and caviar. We mean treating people with genuine respect. In addition, we have jewelers and watchmakers and silversmiths on site who can repair or make or create about anything.  We don’t have to send customer jobs out to some unknown location only to return several days later hoping that the work was done correct. We can do many jobs while you wait.

Our selection is truly unbeatable. We don’t just say that for effect. If you have ever shopped for jewelry elsewhere, you will know our selection is enormous by comparison and we aim to give every customer a top notch experience.  If you can’t find a style you like, we can make it or find it for you.  And if we can’t—well—that just doesn’t happen.

If you are in the market for jewelry, watches, diamonds or any of the thousands of other items we carry, give us a chance.  You won’t regret it.  We’ll even try to make your visit magical too—as if all the sparkling diamonds aren’t enough to make a lasting impression.
