Made in America Monday: Alex and Ani

Better to be late to the party than never show up, right?  Alex and Ani is all the rage; people are talking it about it literally everywhere I go.

This Saturday, I FINALLY checked out Alex and Ani in the Culver Road Armory.  It was love at first sight.  I love, love, LOVE their bangles!  I was thrilled to learn they are made in America and even more excited to hear about their Charity by Design collection that gives back to various charitable organizations.  What a fantastic company!  Not only is there jewelry just the right mix of edge and elegance, but the company's core values are admirable.  This is the type of jewelry I want to wear:  american-made, community-oriented, and fashion-forward.

I could have easily bought twenty bracelets, but settled on these three:
The card accompanying this bracelet read:
"Like a puzzle piece, every individual is shaped differently with unique talents, perspectives, and beliefs.
Once we share these gifts with each other, positivity will spread and hope will endure.
Embrace the energy of the Piece of the Puzzle Charm and realize that we are all interwoven parts of a greater masterpiece."

This puzzle piece is worn with love and pride for my niece Erin and cousin Jeremy.*
*20% of sales go to the National Autism Association.   
It was meant to be, look how great they fit with my arm party of choice.  (I wear these babies almost every day).

Have you hopped on the Alex and Ani band wagon yet?  What's your favorite piece from their collection?

Enjoy the rest of your Monday!

  1. I have the "Path of Life" bangle, and love it! I got an initial bangle for my sister as a gift for being my maid of honor. They make perfect gifts!

  2. i'm happy to say I've been obsessed with them for about 5 years now. My sister-in-law got each of us "girlfriends/wives" a bangle for Christmas a few years back. Mine is the Egyptian Eye, not sure if it's still in production and I LOVE IT and I need to get more. I think they are so smart and so awesome. And durable too. I always worry I will break bracelets and this one is going strong (hope I didn't just jinx myself saying that). I love all your bangles!!!!
