Charles & Colvard Battles Breast Cancer

For the first time, Charles & Colvard created Moissanite and Boscov’s, the country’s largest family-owned department store, are teaming up to help women fight against breast cancer. For the month of October, as part of Boscov’s annual storewide efforts to raise funds for breast cancer awareness, 5 percent of all moissanite jewelry purchased in-store and sold nationally online will go toward funding the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a not-for-profit organization.

In addition, to help educate women and raise awareness for the cause, the two companies are giving away a free moissanite ribbon pin with every moissanite jewelry purchase. The ribbon pin features a moissanite set in the center and will also be accompanied with an educational bookmark detailing tips on combating breast cancer.

The store will also have a moissanite ribbon pendant specially priced at $299.97 for the month of October. It is normally available for purchase at $829 suggested retail. The pin and pendant were created by jewelry manufacturer Samuel Aaron Intl. exclusively for Boscov’s. Customers can purchase moissanite from any of Boscov’s fifty store locations or by logging onto the store’s Web site.
