Jewelry for a Cause: 5 Jewels That Help Battle Breast Cancer

Jewelry for a Cause: 5 Jewels That Help Battle Breast Cancer

NEW YORK. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so that means pink ribbons are everywhere! No matter how you feel about the color or the symbol itself, the meaning behind it is undeniably important: pink ribbons remind us that woman over 40 need annual mammograms. For sure, early detection of breast cancer can save lives. A painful firsthand memory of mine proves the importance: My friend Matie Ann died of breast cancer after a two-year battle brought on by a three-year hiatus from her annual mammograms. Early detection could have helped to save her life.

In the spirit of this critical reminder, myriad jewelry makers offer pieces where a portion of sales benefit a breast cancer charity. Here are five firms and the pieces that further the breast cancer fight while helping you to look fly.

Go Girl ring in sterling silver, $80; Dian Malouf About 10 percent of sales benefit breast cancer research at the Baylor Health Care System Foundation. (To date, more than $25,000 has been raised from sales of this ring.)
