This present has “a little bit of charisma.”

A jeweler in Chattanooga provided the perfect Valentine’s Day gift to a local fire official who was injured in an automobile crash.

Matthew Mann, fire chief at Walker State Prison, was involved in a head-on collision while on the way to Rossville, GA, on Jan. 19 with his department, WRCB-TV reports. He suffered numerous fractures to the arms and legs, along with internal bleeding.

In the days that followed, Mann underwent numerous surgeries, and he’s been participating in physical therapy.

Throughout his recovery, Jessica Strange, whom he had been dating for a month at the time of the crash, stayed by his side. That inspired him to pop the question — even though he couldn’t leave the hospital to shop for a ring.

Hearing about the situation, Jerry Tessmann of Dayle May Jewelers decided to help by donating an engagement ring.

“One that has a little bit of charisma,” Tessmann told WRCB. “She is going to love it!”

The news station reports: “Now just days from saying ‘I do,’ the couple calls this a happy ending to a difficult chapter, as they look ahead to their lives together.”

Tessmann says her business tries to do good deeds in the community whenever possible.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
