Supporting emerging designers AND breast cancer awareness? We can’t think of anything more empowering this October! Here are three indie jewelry brands that are making strides to promote breast cancer awareness and raise funds for research.
Asha Patel Designs – We absolutely adore Asha Patel’s woven wrap bracelets, and this month the popular style comes in metallic pink! A portion of the proceeds (15%) benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Buy the bracelets (and other BCA-supporting pieces) for $29.50 each at ashapateldesigns.com.
Rosena Sammi Jewelry – Designer Rosena Sammi was born and raised in New Zealand, is of Sri Lankan heritage, and is now based in New York. Her background inspires her global-chic collection of luxe yet surprisingly affordable jewelry. This month, 30% of the proceeds from sales of the Sanskrit Hope Necklace ($99) will go to the American Cancer Society. Visit rosenasammi.com to buy yours.
Christine Mighion – The Indiana-based jewelry designer will donate 10% of the proceeds from any pink sapphire pieces in her collection to Susan G. Komen for the Cure this month. This classic ring is set in a recycled 14k gold band and is available for $290 at christinemighion.com.
