Sheild your wrists this winter with a stunning collection of beautifully crafted, eco- friendly bangles from Alex and Ani. Hailing from Rhode Island, founder and creative designer Carolyn Rafaelian designs for women who want to wear pieces that "adorn the body, enlighten the mind, and empower the spirit.” Each distinctive piece uses eco-friendly, recycled materials made in the United States.
Alex and Ani’s “Expandable Wire Bangle Sets” are an innovative concept in jewelry design, because they adjust for the perfect fit. From the more classic bangle sets to more avant-garde rock-star styles, like the pictured “Eagle Cuff”, Carolyn creates something special for every style-savvy woman. And if supporting a cause is of interest, pick up a bangle from the “Charity by Design” collection. The collection features charms in support of “Operation Smile,” “Haiti Relief,” and “Stand Up to Cancer” to name just a few. There is even a "bangle bar" option on the web site for the creative person who wants to create something personal, custom-made.
Recognized both locally and nationally, the collection has been featured in national magazines such as Fashion Boston, US Weekly, InStyle, Elle, and Glamour. You can view Alex and Ani's endless collection of hoop earrings, rings and necklaces for yourself at 115 Newbury Street (Boston, MA)
