I want to shout out a couple of amazing retailers and manufacturers who have special offers in the month of October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. These are a great way to fashionably treat yourself, and do something wonderful at the same time!
I love this partnership between Greenwich Jewelers and jewelry designer Gorjana. It’s pretty incredible that both companies are generously donating 100% of the proceeds of this bracelet to Susan G. Komen for the cure. Greenwich Jewelers wants to sell out of this Limited Edition bracelet, and at $35, it’s affordable. And it’s pretty! And it’s PINK!
Ostbye, a 4th-generation jewelry manufacturer in Minneapolis, is offering a special necklace for the month of October. A rose gold ribbon anchors a circle of diamonds in a design that honors the cause, but is still a classic piece of jewelry. It’s available in two carat weight sizes, the 1/10 carat version sells for $349, and the 1/4 carat version sells for $549. A portion of the proceeds of the necklace will also benefit Susan G. Komen for the cure. Call 1-866-553-1515 to order, or contact them through their website.
I also found this Etsy seller, JayWithLove, who is offering this hand-stamped pendant with enameled pink ribbon and chain. Sweet and subtle, it’s a pretty piece of jewelry that can also be customized. The seller is donating $5 of each purchase to the breast cancer charity of your choice.
Added October 17th: I just found out that Wendy Brandes made a very special ribbon pendant in rose gold with pink sapphires. The pendant comes on a rose gold cable chain, and at $250 is a spectacular deal! Since it is so new, this image is the only one I have of the pendant, but you can click through to inquire or purchase from Wendy.
Added October 26th:
Few jewelry designers have done as much for raising the awareness of breast cancer than Alex Woo. She has designed several special pieces with the goal of raising awareness–and money–for women’s cancer research. It’s a cause very dear to her heart: Alex’s mother died of breast cancer. She has a mini silver and rose gold ribbon charm that can be worn with other charms for $48 and $148 retail, respectively, with a portion of those sales benefiting research. A staple in her collection, the necklace below commemorates her mother with a design that is as beautiful as it is valuable to raising awareness. Her Open Heart Necklace is in rose gold on an 18″ chain, with net proceeds benefiting Women’s Cancer Research Fund (also available in silver for $128 Retail).
