The ribbon symbol has been adopted by many charities to raise awareness, each using a different colour to represent their specific medical condition or issue. The most recognised would probably be the red ribbon symbol which is worn in support of those with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and the pink ribbon symbol for breast cancer.

Awareness Ribbon Jewellery
Originally most ribbon awareness items were pins or badges designed to be worn on your lapel or top however now there is a wide array of jewellery available to raise awareness of medical conditions. These pieces can be worn by those affected by the condition itself or by others who would like to show their support.
