What’s popular today, may not be popular tomorrow….especially in the jewelry industry! It’s easy to get lost in the mix of upcoming designers and the changing trends, however, for Alex and Ani, being forgotten just simply wasn’t an option.
Carolyn Rafaelian started Alex and Ani over ten years ago with her Signature Expandable Wire Bangles, and since thenÂ the company has continued to expand to beingÂ the fastest growing company in Rhode Island.
In 2003, Alex and Ani’s Expandable Wire Bangle was featured in the Swimsuit Issue of Sports Illustrated, being worn as an anklet, and eight years later, Alex and Ani has been recognized again. Though the styles of bikinis have changed, even the model’s hairstyles, one thing has remained constant….Alex and Ani’s commitment to making women feel empowered and beautiful when wearing the jewelry!
