You've probably heard that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which always gives fashion and beauty companies an excuse to release a bunch of pink ribbon-inspired products and donate the proceeds to charity. I'll admit: Even as a giver to breast cancer causes, I know it's easy to get burnt out on all of the stuff. However, there are some great products out there that let you buy something fabulous while also contributing to a cause.
One example: The Young Survivor Collection from Robyn Rhodes. The jeweler, who counts celebrities including Jessica Alba and Eva Longoria as fans, came up with the designs after being approached by Gabrielle Union, when one of the actress's close friends was diagnosed with breast cancer.

The line includes the rose quartz Gabrielle Lariat available here in gold ($95) and silver ($89). To see the matching earrings, read more
The Young Survivor Collection also includes the pink jade Kristen Earrings, available here for $51 in silver and $56 in gold.
