We doubt anybody is unaware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but did you know that it's also Fair Trade Month? Cat brought us the scoop last week on Pangea Collection's fabulous Sterling Silver Heart Bracelet -- for every one purchased, $10 will go toward breast cancer research. But Pangea is doing more.

Throughout this entire month, Pangea Collection will donate $1 from any Fair Trade Jewelry order to Opportunity International, one of the largest micro-finance organizations supporting Fair Trade in the world. Prices are extremely reasonable, with most pieces being in the $20 to $30 range, which means they'd be a great little gift for a friend, or a gorgeous little pick-me-up for you!
