How to start your VCS collection


February 22, 2022

“What should I order first?” is often one of the first questions we receive when a customer is interested in starting their VCS heirloom collection.
Heirlooms tell your story and that of your family. They are meant to be incredibly personal, worn daily, and, eventually, passed down to a loved one who will continue to honor and cherish the memories you’ve created together. So it’s no surprise to us that choosing your first piece is a big decision, as this will be the foundation for more beautiful designs to come.

With so many unique choices, it can be overwhelming and difficult to decide where to begin. To help, we went to our community to see what they have to say and discovered the top 4 styles that are by far the most popular first pieces.

The Classic Silhouette Charm Necklace, Medium Size

The VCS community adores this necklace. The Silhouette Charm captures your loved one’s special features to perfection and it’s one of those pieces that goes with everything. Its design and size make it versatile enough to be worn on its own or beautifully layered with other treasured pieces.

The Petite Diamond Huggie Hoops

Simple, elegant, and dainty, these earrings are designed to be worn all day, every day. VCS members love how versatile they are, wearing them anywhere from the gym to a fancy dinner. Their low profile means they are even comfortable enough to wear while sleeping. Customers love the sparkle, as it adds a touch of glam to every look.

The Medium Size 14K Solid Gold Locket

The classic gold locket is a timeless design. Inside holds the silhouettes of your loved ones, while the exterior finish can be engraved with a special date, name, or message in our script or their handwriting. The VCS team continues to perfect our jewelry craftsmanship, which means your locket can be worn all day, even while swimming.

 

The Handwriting Medallion Charm, Large

This beautiful Medallion Charm is a special and unique way to capture a loved one’s note. The charm comes alone on its own jump ring, so you can easily add it to a chain or bracelet you already wear. What we think is so special about the Handwriting Charm is it is like carrying a piece of your loved one close to your heart as you go about your day.


We hope these suggestions help make your decision easier. Please reach out to us with any questions you may have. It is our honor to help you capture your special memories and craft them into custom heirlooms.
