ALEX AND ANI

Brands that have a meaning behind them are higher in my book than brands or companies that don’t. Alex and Ani is a jewelry brand that doesn’t sell accessories for the sole purpose of looking fashionable. Although their necklaces and bracelets are totally stylish, they each have a certain meaning behind them that I wanted to tell you a little about!

To start off, their bangles are definitely the brand’s main attraction. Their original style has a main symbol that dangles from an either gold or silver bracelet. Each symbol represents three things, such as love, friendship, loyalty, adventure, etc. For example, the Path of Life Charm Bangle represents strength, motivation, and knowledge. Another one of my favorites is the Sailboat Charm Bangle which represents courage, adventure, and transition. Each bracelet comes with a little card to remember the meaning behind it!

My current favourites are the bangles as they symbolize -Enlighten • Enchant • Empower! Each bangle is expandable ensuring the perfect fit for every wrist. This completely original design allows everyone to have a piece of jewelry which is truly customized.

Quilt feather wrap and Feather Charm–Truth • Light • Virtue

An object representing light and air, a feather is the bearer of truth and justice. Ancient Egyptians believed a pure heart weighed as light as a feather. In Christianity, feathers represent virtues of charity, hope, and faith. Bestow the feather to seek wisdom and reach new heights.

Love Charm –Affection • Joy • Light

Love is the greatest virtue of all. It is at the root of all good things. All humans thrive in a loving environment, and whenever love is in the equation, happiness results.

Tree of Life — Hope • Conservation • Growth

The Tree of Life represents strong roots, unlimited growth, and sacred knowledge. It is the blueprint of life itself. Like the tree’s powerful branches, we are all connected in an ever-evolving, mysterious cycle of life. Feel the eternal bond between mankind and Mother Earth.Apart from bangles, they also have bracelets, necklaces, earrings, scarves, handbags, etc.

Alex and Ani has an awesome meaning and concept behind them. They make for perfect gifts considering each piece is usually around $30. I highly suggest you check them out. You won’t regret it!

Hope you Loveiles enjoyed and if you have any ALEX AND ANI pieces, i would love to know whats your favourite ❤
