Alex and Ani is a positive energy company dedicated to creating products of unparalleled quality and beauty that promote consciousness and unity. Our design aesthetic underscores the idea that what is pure and natural is most beautiful. In keeping with that sensibility, Alex and Ani products are handcrafted from recycled metals. Alex and Ani founder Carolyn Rafaelian is deeply committed to creating a greener future for the planet and its inhabitants. Reusing and recycling materials in the creation of her jewelry is an integral part of Rafaelian's mission as a conscious, eco-friendly designer. Protecting the environment is one of Alex and Ani's passions. Manufacturing in America is another. All Alex and Ani products are made in the United States, which is a point of pride for our company. Rafaelian believes passionately in keeping American workers gainfully employed and in producing products of the highest quality. American standards know no equal. Alex and Ani accepts no less. Quality and consciousness come together in every Alex and Ani piece. Alex and Ani's collections are made up of powerful, meaningful, and spiritual pieces, which uplift and inspire all who wear them. Rafaelian's design aesthetic works on two levels; she is creating art and, through that art, facilitating consciousness. Each piece has an inherent symbolic value, while, at the same time, reflects the personal style of the wearer. At Alex and Ani, the patented expandable concept symbolizes a revolutionary idea: one elegant design, one perfect fit for all women. The expandable concept was born of the idea that all women should have jewelry that does more than adorn. It should reflect their essence and their interests. The Alex and Ani line is one where consciousness and glamour coexist. It is also one that suits all generations. Ageless and classic, Alex and Ani's lines reflect Rafaelian's cherished belief that women of all ages deserve jewelry that celebrates their inherent beauty.
