DBS Fine Jewelers of St. Michaels Supports Women’s Wellness; Proceeds From the Sale of the “Mermaid of the Chesapeake” Necklace To Benefit Shore Health’s Wellness for Women Program

DBS Fine Jewelers of St. Michaels has announced a partnership with Shore Health’s Wellness for Women program – an outreach initiative of the Shore Regional Breast Center.

DBS Fine Jewelers has created the beautiful “Mermaid of the Chesapeake” necklace, which is crafted with sterling silver, 14K gold, fresh water pearls and a faceted pink sapphire. The necklace will be sold exclusively at DBS and retails for $465.

For every “Mermaid of the Chesapeake” necklace sold, $50 will be donated to the Wellness for Women program at the Shore Regional Breast Center. This outreach program provides free monthly clinics where uninsured or underinsured women can receive clinical breast exams and screening mammograms.

“I am very proud to be partnering with Shore Health to support the much-needed Wellness for Women program,” commented Aida Leisure, owner of DBS Fine Jewelers of St. Michaels. “In much of the world’s folklore, mermaids granted calm seas and safe passage to travelers. My hope is that the ‘Mermaid of the Chesapeake’ will support many safe passages for women traveling on life’s journey by providing access to critical breast cancer screenings and care.”

“We look forward to working with DBS Fine Jewelers,” says Roberta Lilly, MD, MPH, Medical Director at Shore Regional Breast Center. “We are so thankful to be beneficiaries of this partnership and also hope that this beautiful piece of jewelry will raise awareness and bring attention to the importance of breast exams and screening mammograms for all women.”
