People like to wear things on their wrists, and I am one of those people. I feel like something is missing if I forget to wear a watch or bracelets or both. I know Alex and Ani bangles are probably not new news to many of you, but I am pretty obsessed. They keep making me buy them because they keep coming out with new ones! I just can’t help myself, and it’s no secret to anyone close to me that I am currently crazy about Alex and Ani Bangles, so I am going to share my collection with you. Are you into them, too? Or are you into a different brand of bracelet? Let me know!
The Alex and Ani Mission:
The company centers their products around positive energy:
- The items are crafted in high-caliber American factories.
- Each piece of jewelry carries meaningful positive symbols.
- Each adornment encourages the wearer to focus on his or her own uniqueness by mixing and matching, thus creating one-of-a-kind combinations.
- Bonus: Alex and Ani products are eco-conscious.
My Alex and Ani Collection: The Charm Bangles
I love the charm bracelets because there is basically a charm for every occasion, hobby, personality, etc, and they all have different meanings behind them. The charm bangles are highly addictive, and they also make great gifts. Plus, they come in either shiny gold or silver colors. Some people like to stick with all one color, but it’s trendy right now to mix it up. (That’s my preference!)
My very first Alex and Ani charm bangle of all time was my first initial. I now have bracelets with my kids’ initials, my birthstone, their birthstone… I also have some inspirational charms such as the lotus flower, which symbolizes resilience, illumination, and beauty. These are all qualities I wish to embody on a daily basis.I also love my charm that reads “Live a Happy Life”, which you can see above. Call me crazy, but I really do just have a better day when I wear that particular bangle (and really any of the others in my collection). It doesn’t hurt to have that little reminder to smile dangling from my wrist all day. I am pretty positive I have so many voids to fill when it comes to the Alex and Ani charms, so I can’t wait to collect more.
My Alex and Ani Collection: The Beaded Bangles
These beaded bangles are just so gorgeous. I have never seen one I didn’t like! I love to wear them all together or mix in some charms, but they look great individually, as well.Some of the beaded beauties above are wrap-style. Both styles are super comfortable and fit like a charm (or a bead? haha). What’s nice about Alex and Ani bracelets is that they acclimate to your wrist and kind of mold themselves to fit. I have tiny wrists, and I’ve never had a problem with the bracelets being too large.
My Alex and Ani Collection: Odds & Ends
I left this braided leather wrap by itself because it is so different than the others! This beautiful pop of color is part of the vintage collection. Also, the feather ring is Alex and Ani. How cute is it?! It looks like a tiny bangle! It’s lovely, but it is a little big on my size 4 fingers. I can get away with wearing it on my middle finger or my thumb. I am actually loving thumb rings these days.
Keep in mind that Alex and Ani makes necklaces and earrings as well! I don’t have any of those yet, but I hope to change that.
