Virgins, Saints, & Angels

“Who’s your virgin?” That is the question Chelsea Gifts Online’s new designer, Virgin, Saints, & Angels or VSA, is asking everyone. Virgin, Saints, & Angels is the brainchild of head designer Cheryl Finnegan—“Finn”-- whose abilities merge timeless spiritual imagery with modern mixed materials has made her one of the hottest contemporary jewelry designers in the market.

Finn conceptualized VSA Designs after a 14-year marketing career with Levi Strauss and moving to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico where she was inspired by the art and magic of the small town. What started as an obsession with the Virgin of Guadalupe and Mexican folklore quickly transformed to a Parisian runway and has been unstoppable ever since.

VSA is ideal for those with a taste for striking accent pieces as well as bold, timeless inspirations each design is influenced by life and culture in Mexico as well as religious iconography. Every Virgin, Saints, & Angels piece is crafted by hand in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico by an experienced team of artists. The brand is known for its Virgins Saints and Angels necklaces, including their classic Magdalena necklace rosaries, cross pendants, and wrapped chains but allow me to introduce you to my favorites.


Virgin, Saints, & Angels design some of my favorite earrings including VSA Black Diamond Crystals Resurrection Disco Earrings which are part of their Resurrection Collection and hand dipped 5 times in Sterling Silver adorned with Genuine Black Diamond Swarovski Crystals. I also adore the VSA Tribal Diamond Earrings Silver with Silver Shade and the Feather Earrings in Silver with Jet Crystals intended to embody the spirit of the ancient Huichol Indians from the mountains of Central Mexico. The stunning Rose of Venus French Twist earrings feature exotic turquoise accents and Swarovski crystals hand-made of 24k gold plated wire.


I love bracelets. I love stacking and mixing and matching. Virgins, Saints, & Angels bracelets are my absolute favs because they go with everything and offer delightful talking pieces. If you don’t currently have these on your dresser like me, what are you waiting for?

My VSA bracelet recommendations include the San Benito Square Bracelet Silver which is a vintage style linked bracelet featuring their classic San Benito Medallion and the Wrap Bracelet / Necklace Silver & Turquoise a must own layering piece that can be worn alone or wrapped up to five times as a bracelet. Their Antigua Collection Cuff inspired by vintage lace and Temptation Cuff are absolutely gorgeous and make an excellent, edgy, addition to any outfit.

The Virgins, Saints, & Angels jewelry style is extremely unmistakable and unforgettable. You can see it on almost every age group and gender. VSA’s combination of Celtic meets gothic meets Mexico has become a collectible, with people waiting in line for the next shipment of the newest colors and designs. Their pieces are beloved by men and women alike, including Madonna, Stephen Tyler, David Beckham and Beyonce who all share a common thread. VSA wearers make a statement, that they are confident and inspired by fashion, art, beauty, or symbolism.

Chelsea Gifts Online carries the full line up of Virgin, Saints, & Angels’ rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and magdalenas that you can scope out on their website.
