Medal Expandable Chain Necklace
Alex and Ani, an eco-friendly company manufactured in the United States, was created and designed by the talented local of Rhode Island, Carolyn Rafaelian. The company was named after her first two daughters and focuses on the idea that "one can infuse thought into material to recognize one's power and unique essence in their everyday wear."

Carolyn Rafaelian believes that her creations hold the power to express awareness, empowerment, and inner beauty. It was her mission to design a line that provides and enlightens the wearer with her own unique essence, embracing and showcasing the beauty that lies within.
Alex and Ani use eco friendly, recycled materials made 100% in the United States. Alex and Ani does this by purchasing metals from local mills who have received recycled scraps from refineries, they then use those pieces and after, sell their scraps back to the Mills. This system supports the environment and also encourages Alex and Ani's followers to be eco friendly through their own daily lifestyles.
Chloe Expandable Wire Bangle Set
Alex and Ani's expandable collections have a very unique mechanism involved in the way that they are constructed. Difficult to use clasps on the jewelry are replaced with a sliding technology that involve no clasps and allow the wearer to have a customized fit.
Alex and Ani's signature feature is used on expandable wire bracelets, rings, chain necklaces, and hoop earrings. The expandable pieces are available in precious metals or Alex and Ani's signature Russian Gold and Russian Silver finishes. Ornamented with spiritual symbols and stones, these signature pieces can be collected and put together in unique assortments personal to the wearer.
