Christmas present shopping can be difficult when you’re trying to buy for teen daughters, nieces or goddaughters. Of course you can buy them some sparkly trinkets, but aren’t presents so much nicer when they’re personal and just for that special person the gift is being bought for?
Alex and Ani has quickly become a fashion favourite with many celebs, including Beyonce, Miley Cyrus and Sandra Bullock – perfect for tween and teen girls!
This mission of this eco-conscious company is to create beautiful jewellery to adorn the body, enlighten the mind, and empower the spirit. The pieces are designed by third-generation jeweller Carolyn Rafaelian, who founded the company in 2004 and named it after her first two daughters.
The beauty of each Alex and Ani collection is that you are the main designer. Each bangle is available in Rafaelian silver and gold, and is expandable, ensuring the perfect fit for every wrist. This completely original design allows everyone to have a piece of jewellery, which is truly customised.
Alex and Ani products are infused with positive energy the ancients refer to as ‘chi’ and ‘prana,’ and modern science calls as vital force. It is the natural energy that supports life.
Each product is infused with positive energy in three important ways.
The products themselves are manufactured (and infused) with positive intention in carefully selected American factories.
The symbols featured in the designs carry their own energy and are accompanied by thoughtfully crafted and meticulously researched meaning.
Each design is positively intended to empower the wearer and reflect the unique qualities of the individual. Some pieces carry sentimental meaning, while others are talismans of protection, power, or intention.
Inspired by ancient wisdom, Alex and Ani designs incorporate multicultural energy symbols to help empower the wearer. Something we also find really impressive is that each piece has been crafted from recycled materials sourced from local mills, supporting the environment as well as the local community.
