Alex & Ani founder Carolyn Rafaelian uses her jewelry collection to spread "positive energy ... enlighten the mind, and empower the spirit." Based in Rhode Island, Rafaelian founded her company in 2004 and named it after her two oldest daughters; her niece, Rachel Rafaelian, serves as head designer of Alex & Ani's retro-chic Vintage Sixty-Six line. Each Alex & Ani piece is handcrafted from colorful vintage stones and recycled metals sourced from Rhode Island mills to ensure a low carbon footprint. Some of Rafaelian's most popular designs include expandable bracelets and rings that, "with the slide of a hand," can be adjusted for a perfect fit. Alex & Ani's brilliant bangles, beaded necklaces, and drop earrings are the perfect accessory for the eco- and economically conscious fashion fan.
Entangled strand necklaces. Octagonal bangles. Sets of 36 colorful bangles. The finds in this jewelry selection are as bold as they are eclectic. Shop some of your favorite designers, from Amrita Singh to Belargo, and act fast — this is your last chance to snag these pieces.
Achieve an effortless but eclectic look with Alex & Ani’s bangle sets, which range from collections of four to 40 unique beaded bracelets in different color schemes. Make a matching set with large beaded hoop earrings, or mix it up with swinging chandelier earrings. There are also gorgeous multi-chain necklaces adorned with crystal flowers.
Who can resist an update to their jewelry drawer when the baubles in question are as striking as these? Whether you subscribe to a more-is-more philosophy or prefer the classics, the finds here range from the understated to the opulent. Just take the simple white gold bands, diamond pendants, and bright drop earrings for example—or, on the other hand, the large, multicolored pendants, the cocktail rings, and the shoulder-grazing dangle earrings. Better yet, why choose?
There’s more than meets the eye in this jewelry collection from Alex & Ani. Not only are these adjustable necklaces, bracelets and rings made from recycled materials, but they also flaunt gems that bring the wearer health and happiness, such as citrine for prosperity and peridot for balance.
