What Is Positive Energy?
ALEX AND ANI products are infused with positive energy. Ancients referred to this precious energy as “chi” and “prana,” whereas modern science refers to it as vital force. It is the natural energy that supports life.
How does ALEX AND ANI utilize the power of positive energy?
We embrace the power of positive energy as our core company belief. Each product is infused with positive energy in three important ways. First, the products themselves are manufactured (and infused) with positive intention in carefully selected American factories. Second, the symbols featured in our designs carry their own energy and are accompanied by thoughtfully crafted and meticulously researched meaning. Last, each design is positively intended to empower the wearer and reflect the unique qualities of the individual. Some pieces carry sentimental meaning; others are talismans of protection, power, or intention. The beauty of each collection is that you are the designer. Mixing symbolic pieces with your own alchemy makes ALEX AND ANI completely and uniquely yours.
ALEX AND ANI embraces a unique business model that incorporates corporate consciousness in all directives. The wellbeing of the environment, the health of local and national economies, and the empowerment of customers are taken into account with every decision made.
We design products that will have a positive impact on the world. All items are manufactured in America. The materials utilized are sustainable and derived from eco-conscious processes. Internally, all employees are highly valued at ALEX AND ANI. The team is the heart of the company. In-house coaching, creative support, and innovative courses are offered to the corporate family to encourage individual growth and wellbeing for a balanced life.
We believe in the power of gratitude and giving. Through CHARITY BY DESIGN and other outreach initiatives, we channel our resources into the efforts of organizations that work to improve others’ quality of life. Alex and Ani Institute is the vehicle that makes it possible to share these principles, technologies, and ideas that have helped us build our company. We look forward to sharing the secrets of our success and energy to help others attain their goals.
