Alex and Ani Review & Giveaway!*CLOSED*



 Alex and Ani has some of the most beautiful jewelry I have even seen! I spent quite some time looking at their jewelry and here is their story~

Mission Statement

Alex and Ani's mission is to design products that adorn the body, enlighten the mind, and empower the spirit. Alex and Ani's collections reflect a design aesthetic that celebrates each wearer's unique essence. Owner and designer Carolyn Rafaelian believes it is her life's work to inspire her customers to relish what is unique and authentic about themselves. Alex and Ani's artistry lies in drawing out the beauty that resides within.




PHILOSOPHY

Alex and Ani is a company dedicated to creating products of unparalleled quality and beauty that promote consciousness and unity. Manufacturing in the United States and re-using and recycling materials is an integral part of Alex and Ani’s mission as a conscious and eco-friendly company. Alex and Ani’s collections are not only Eco-friendly, they are made up of powerful, meaningful, and spiritual pieces, which uplift and inspire all who wear them.


 EXPANDABLE CONCEPT


The signature expandable concept is the cornerstone of Alex and Ani.
Utilizing an innovative patented and completely original technology this concept replaces traditional clasps with a sliding mechanism, making each piece adjustable. This signature expandable feature is available in expandable wire bracelets and rings, expandable chain necklaces and endless hoop earrings. This completely original design allows everyone to have a piece of jewelry customized for a perfect fit.
Available in precious metals or our signature Russian Gold and Russian Silver finishes and adorned with sacred symbols and stones, the expandable collection is timeless, classic, and collectible.




 ECO FRIENDLY
The Alex and Ani aesthetic underscores the idea that what is pure and natural is most beautiful and creating jewelry from recycled materials enriches the beauty of each piece.  Founder and creative designer Carolyn Rafaelian embraces a philosophy that is based upon using eco friendly, recycled materials made entirely in the United States. Because of this, Alex and Ani is able to purchase metals from local mills who have received recycled scraps from refineries, which in turn, use those pieces and sell their scraps back to the Mills. Carolyn believes that by creating designs that support the environment and encourage social consciousness, consumers can use their purchases to make a difference in protecting our planet and our future.


 As you can see from just some of the pictures from their beautiful jewelry~you will find something that you like no matter what the occasion is! I like that I can wear their bracelets as my wrists are very small.


 I was sent the Love Wire Bangle in the Russian Gold to review. It is very stylish and I can wear it alone or add to the other bangles that I own. I like the feel of it too~as it is so light not heavy like some of the other pieces that I own. I receive compliments every time that I wear it~This is by far my favorite piece of jewelry!




You can see all this and more at Alex and Ani here!
