You’ve got your arm party RSVPs in and the VIP section — you know, the bracelets that you never ever take off — is firmly in place. But get ready for a few welcome party crashers. To celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness, we’ve found a pair of bracelets that you’ll want to add to your collection ASAP.

For the very first time, Alex and Ani is offering up a signature bangle for BCA. Sales of the Alex and Ani Charity by Design Spiral Sun Charm Bangle ($38) through December will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), which works fund the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer. Available in silver and gold, the bracelet features a new design. The Spiral Sun was created by the Alex and Ani team as a reminder that change is always constant, ongoing and rhythmic. The motif symbolizes going with the flow and accepting where life carries you, all while feeling the suns warmth.

Alex and Ani is donating 20% of sales from this bracelet to BCRF, with a minimum donation at $25,000. It’s the latest addition to the line’s Charity by Design collection, which includes bracelets that benefit Stand Up 2 Cancer, the Special Olympics, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and more.

Available at Alex and Ani.

Chamilia Give Back: Breast Cancer Gift Set

Chamilia Give Back: Breast Cancer Gift Set

While some charity bracelets are more flashy than fashion (rubber bracelets are cute and all, but let’s be honest, they’re not a welcome addition to any arm party), looking for a charitable charm just got a whole lot easier. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, fine jewelry brand Chamilia is offering a special charm that’s not only an everyday piece that’ll complement everything from your boyfriend watch and macrame bracelets, but all of your fine jewelry pieces, too. And with a portion of proceeds going to the American Cancer Society, you can feel good and look great.

“Chamilia is a brand that has always supported women in the important stages of their lives,” said Catherine Ottaviano, Chamilia vice president of global merchandising and marketing. “During Breast Cancer Awareness month, the women who have battled this disease are honored. Of course, we choose to support their journey.”

The Give Back: Breast Cancer set ($75) is a special combination of existing pieces, but you can be sure that it’ll make a statement no matter how you wear it. The bracelet brings together a soft pink braided leather bracelet in addition to the brand’s Hope charm. The easy-to-use clamshell closure that makes Chamilia bracelets a fan favorite is present, too, which makes it easy to take the bracelet on and off — which is great when you’re rushing out the door and still want your arm party to shine. Add a few more tokens of support with the Chamilia pink ribbon, Murano glass ribbon or cz bead. The collection is so sweet you’ll want to wear it all year long.
