October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and many people will choose to wear a ribbon pin during that time to raise awareness about this devastating disease. The pink Breast Cancer cause ribbon is universally recognized. The color pink has become so aligned with the cause of breast cancer, that just seeing that color brings the disease to most people's minds.
Many people simply choose to use a piece of fabric ribbon from a spool and affix it with either a straight pin or safety pin. However, if a more permanent form of expression is desired, then there's no substitute for a jewelry ribbon with enameled color. While a plain ribbon is fine, a second element can bring an entirely new depth of meaning to the ribbon. For example, when an angel is added to the ribbon, it conveys a message of hope, love, and protection. An angel is especially appropriate for the person battling cancer who wants a positive affirmation of comfort and empowerment.
While an angel cause ribbon is perfect for ladies, men may prefer an icon they consider to be less feminine. The star is perfect for the gentleman who wants to wear an awareness ribbon that's just a bit different from the rest. Like an angel, a star also conveys a message of hope. Awareness ribbon enameled pins are a great way to bring the fight against cancer to the forefront. When the ribbon is enhanced with an angel or star, the message becomes even more special!
