A native of Elizabethton, Tennessee, Faye started her jewelry career in 1971 in the jewelry department in a Sterchi’s Furniture store in Johnson City, Tennessee.
In 1997, Faye moved to Greeneville to manage the local Friedman’s Jewelers, where her store was consistently recognized for being one of the region’s best and ultimately culminating with her earning the “Superior Performance Award” for her 100-store division. Faye has completed diamond and gemology courses throughout her career, and is a certified diamontologist and gemologist. In 2008, Faye and Rick made one of their dreams a reality and opened their own store, Legacy Fine Jewelers.
Since arriving in Greeneville, Faye has been an active member of First Christian Church of Greeneville. Faye and Rick are avid baseball fans and you’ll see them at many of the Reds’ home games.
