Sales benefit cancer center
Cancer Research Center Hawaii is the sole Hawaii beneficiary of proceeds from the sales of a specially designed collection of jewelry by Ben Bridge Jeweler and Mikimoto Pearls through Dec. 31.
In Hawaii, Ben Bridge Jeweler at Ala Moana Center will participate in the campaign and make the donation to the Cancer Center.
Ben Bridge Jeweler and Mikimoto Pearls will each donate 20 percent from every sale of jewelry in its special collection. The pink ribbon associated with breast cancer awareness programs inspired the collection, titled "Everything Is Possible with Hope."
"Usually, Mikimoto Pearls are strung with white silk, but the pieces in the collection will be strung with pink silk and will be tied with a pink ribbon logo," said Lisa White, manager at Ben Bridge Jeweler, Ala Moana.
The collection includes a pearl bracelet, two different types of pearl strand necklaces, two pendant designs in the shape of a pink ribbon with pearl drop, two different types of hope pin broaches with pink sapphires, and a pair of earrings.
Cancer Research Center Hawaii is one of only 63 National Cancer Institute-designated cancer centers nationwide. Visit its Web site at www.crch.org.
