Pin a reminder for friendship, mammograms

In memory of Marissa, a sister-in-law who died from breast cancer, Marietta-based jeweler Alisa Unger designed the "Me and My Two Friends" jewelry collection. The three-ribbon design is based on a pink ribbon, the symbol for breast cancer awareness. The jewelry, such as this Conviction pin ($1,175), contains 14-karat white and pink gold accented with tiny diamonds. All profits from the sale of the jewelry will benefit the Me and My Two Friends Foundation for Breast Cancer Education Awareness.

Unger hopes the name of the collection will prompt women to schedule their annual mammograms and encourage two friends to do the same. Buy the jewelry at D. Geller & Son. For information: 770-955-5995.
