WELCOME TO TOM TIVOL JEWELS
Like many online and traditional jewelers, we showcase beautiful gemstones and jewelry in our Kansas City jewelry store, and offer a wide range of gemological and jewelry services. However, unlike most retail jewelers, Tom Tivol defines standards of quality that were prevalent in the world jewelry industry from 1900 through the 1970s. At Tom Tivol Jewels of Kansas City, we define and maintain these high standards through the jewelry we sell and with the services we provide. We look forward to working with you.
