The Vinca Difference

Vinca is more than just a place to buy fine jewelry: It’s a network of personal relationships, a piece of Kansas City history, and a connection to artistry and the world’s finest gems. Here are a few of the things that make our customers say, “There’s a million jewelry stores, but only one Vinca.”

In-house design and crafting:

Browse our shelves, and more often than not, the piece your eyes alight upon will be something designed by Simon or Christian. Our quality is evident in the expert setting of stones, the beautifully executed intricate designs, and our contemporary understanding of what our customers want to wear, now and in the future.

One-of-a-kind gems:

We specialize in rare and precious stones. Looking to purchase a piece that you won’t see everywhere else? Talk to us, and we’ll make your dreams come true.

A personal touch:

We get to know you in a real way. We’re here to help you find the perfect piece for you or your loved ones, and we really listen to your needs. Have a price point in mind, or feeling you want to express? Let us know, and we’ll help you select jewelry that will make your heart sing.

Our team


Simon has been designing jewelry since the early 1980s, when he taught himself to cast gold and set stones. He draws inspiration for his design from nature, and from his frequent around-the-world trips to buy gems and metals. Simon’s strength as a designer is his ability to understand people and bring to life their heart’s desire.


Elizabeth is the guiding force behind Vinca’s customer experience. A hostess and caretaker at heart, she has a love of adventure and connection, qualities that serve her well when helping customers select a piece that gives a voice to an underlying emotion or sentiment.


As Vinca’s first employee, Tu has been instrumental in developing Vinca’s personal approach to working with its customers. As the backbone of the store, Tu is deeply knowledgable about gemstones and the jewelry making process. Her  knack for remembering names and preferences is only rivalled by her running knowledge of Vinca’s extensive inventory.
