American Express Features Carolyn Rafaelian in OPEN Forum

With each passing day, it’s both humbling and amazing to see how much Alex and Ani has touched your lives. We have grown exponentially due to your love, support, and positive energy, and are thrilled that our message truly resonates on a personal level.

We are excited to see American Express’ OPEN Forum recently featured the article and interview on our company written by Katie Morell. The piece provides a close look at the history of Carolyn Rafaelian, Founder and Creative Director, the launch of Alex and Ani in 2004, and our 3,500% growth over the past three years.

One part that particularly spoke to us is Rafaelian’s answer when asked what advice she would give to emerging entrepreneurs:

“Listen to your inner voice and make sure that voice isn’t your ego speaking. Follow that inner voice, and nothing will stand in your way.”
