Rick Terry supports cancer awarenessRick Terry Jewelry Designs once again is supporting breast cancer awareness with its Rick Terry for a Cure campaign during October.
“Rick’s slogan is he wants to be your jeweler, and so during October, it’s ‘We want to be your jeweler and your partner in the fight against breast cancer.’” Paula Stafford, Rick Terry Jewelry Designs head of operations, said.
This year, the store, with locations at 11320 Kingston Pike in Farragut, 131 Kelsey Lane in Lenoir City and 618 Gay St., downtown Knoxville, is featuring a freshwater pearl bracelet and necklace in its effort to raise funds for the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Knoxville.
“The little gift bag includes a free watch battery, a silver polishing cloth and you can make a choice between a bracelet or a necklace,” Stafford said. read more
