Customize a contact to ring when all other alerts are off

Hi, is it possible to set my curve 8520 to alert me when one specific contact is calling/messaging when all all alerts are off? I need my phone to be silent while I work so that I hear no messages or calls of all contacts except for one. If this is possible could you please explain how? Thank you.
