Breast Cancer Awareness Jewelry: 3 Ways to Honor, Love and Support

on Oct 5, 2015 12:00 PM

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and for many of us, it’s a time to be part of the movement, embrace hope and stand up to honor, connect and accelerate change.

You likely know someone whose life has been affected by cancer, maybe even your own. We believe jewelry has a powerful way of bringing people together as one to show support and solidarity for the cause.

We’ve selected three designers who’ve added pieces to their collections to support the fight against breast cancer with breast cancer awareness jewelry.

Alex Woo

Alex Woo’s contribution towards fighting for breast cancer research and awareness is the “Tree of Life” pendant.

The pendant was designed with the award winning actress and breast cancer survivor Christina Applegate, to represent harmony, hope and renewal. All proceeds from the pendant go to Applegate’s Right Action for Women foundation.

“Tree of Life” pendants ($158-$998) are available in sterling silver or 14kt yellow gold.



PANDORA charms are a popular way to show your support for breast cancer awareness. Over the years, they have introduced a variety of charms to help you do so, often times with a portion of the proceeds going to support Komen for the Cure.

PANDORA offers many ways to “think pink” and wear a charm to commemorate breast cancer survivors and show your support of loved ones deeply affected by it.
