Jewelry For Breast Cancer Awareness
The most stylish way to promote breast cancer awareness this October is by filling up your jewelry box!
October is internationally known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and everyone knows there’s few things as satisfying as spending money on fashion that supports a cause. The thing with breast cancer is that as aware as we’ve become, the early signs of the disease are so easily overlooked and forgotten in our daily lives, making the annual month-long reminder extremely relevant and even more important for women worldwide. To sum it up, now is the perfect time to download the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s free detection app as well as splurge on some chic buys that support breast cancer related charities and programs. Here’s three unique suggestions from the jewelry department.
At $67, Blaine Bowen’s Luna ring is a little more expensive than your typical pink silicone breast cancer awareness bracelet, but the minimal design makes it timeless and perfect to match any outfit from day to night, year after year. As much as 30% of the proceeds go to the Pink Ribbons Project, which is a non-profit organization that promotes breast cancer awareness and provides fundamental breast health services in the Greater Houston Areas. The ring doesn’t only look good, it’s also made of quality 14K Rose Gold Vermeil with Pave CZ Stones. Get it online here.
Neely Phelan’s collections are made up of unique designs that are inspired by decades of the past and handcrafted from naturally-aged vintage, dead-stock and surplus materials. Perfect for making a statement and complementing the trendy boho chic look, the brand’s Druzy ring is $150 with 30% of the price going to the Ta-Tas Foundation this October. It’s made of 100% natural stone, meaning that each individual ring slightly varies in size, shape and color. A truly one-of-a-kind jewel! For more about the organization, Ta-Tas is a non-profit that focuses on battling cancer at every stage by supporting break-through breast cancer research, awareness, education, community service and more. You can buy the pink 18K ring on Neely Phelan’s website.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Ann Taylor will donate 50 percent of the purchase price of each item sold from its limited edition jewelry collection from September 18, 2015 through December 31, 2015 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). The collection features a pendant necklace ($49.50) and charm bracelet ($59.50) with a variation of different emblems that tells a story with motivational, heartfelt meaning.

Last but not least, Coco Loves Rome’s earrings are the most affordable of the bunch, and a great reminder of how much fun being a girl can be. They’re $20, and %25 of the proceeds will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which is aimed at funding clinical and genetic research related to the disease. Reflecting the quirky and playful elements of the brand’s identity, the dangly teardrop design and delicious pastel colors of the ‘Preach Confetti Sorbet’ titled earrings make them a great stand-out piece for bringing a girly touch to any outfit.
