1. What VCS piece should I order first?
This 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.

5. Why heirlooms?
We all have special jewelry pieces that were passed down to us by members in our family who treasured them during different phases of their lives. Behind every heirloom piece, there is a story that begs to be told, a memory worth passing down, and of course there's value associated with it. By definition, heirloom is a valuable object that has been in a family for generations. We believe creating your own heirloom piece to be passed down is incredibly meaningful and important. On the blog, Vana shares her experience with heirlooms, our community gives their tips, and we list 5 Reasons Why You Should Invest in Heirloom Jewelry.
