The third week of October is designated asÂ Male Breast Cancer Awareness Week to bring attention to an often overlooked population affected by the disease.
Pink and the pink ribbon are international symbols of support for the cause. More and more jewelers are spotlighting their pink gems and even releasing special collections specific to breast cancer awareness.
Wear your pink this October!Â
