Special jewelry stolen

Resident hopes for the return of items that symbolize important family passages

A Vernon resident is hoping to be reunited with  precious family keepsakes.

On Dec. 17, jewelry was stolen from Kerry Vance’s home.

“While I mourn the loss of all of my jewelry, there are three specific pieces that I am hoping will somehow be returned,” she said.

“They are not just any pretty baubles. I had my children’s fingerprints when they were babies imprinted in silver with their names on the other side and had them as a pendant on a silver chain. These are of no use to anyone and have great sentimental value.”

Another item taken was a silver ring with a small, oblong jade stone.

“This was the ring my husband proposed to me with. Again, it’s worth very little to anyone else,” she said.

“The last piece was a silver bangle-type bracelet that my husband made for me in Masset on Haida Gwaii on the birth of our third child. It is engraved with two hummingbirds and a flower in the middle.”

Vance insists she’s not interested in the other jewelry that was taken.

“I can live with the loss of the others, but the loss of these has left a hole in my heart,” she said.

Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact the Vernon RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
