I first heard about Alex and Ani jewelry a few years ago. But it wasn’t until I was in at A Village Gift Shop in Glendale recently where I learned more about the line, and I became absolutely obsessed!

First of all, the concept is great — each bracelet has a meaningful charm. So, instead of buying one bracelet and putting tons of charms on it, you buy several Alex and Ani charm bangles and stack them. Not only is the stacked look more fashionable, but you can also switch out which ones you want to wear that day. Do you want to wear both silver and gold bangles today? You can choose between 14kt Gold Filled, Argentium Silver, Rafaelian Gold Finish, and Rafaelian Silver Finish bangles. Need extra strength and encouragement for an important business meeting today? Wear your “Strength In Full Bloom,” “Champion Charm” and “Path Of Life® Charm” bangles.

Also, Alex and Ani makes for an awesome gift. Not only because you can select pieces by their special meaning or occasion, but also because the bangles are expandable and fit any wrist size! Truly one-size-fits-all!

Plus, each piece is artisan crafted entirely in America. The materials utilized are sustainable and derived from eco-friendly processes. Also, a portion of each sale is given to various charitable organizations that work to improve others’ quality of life. So, not only will you look good, but you’ll feel good knowing you helped an important and worthy cause.

Looks like I’m not the only one obsessed with Alex and Ani , either. From Jessica Simpson, Beyoncé, Sandra Bullock, and Halle Berry to Bethenny Frankel, Katharine McPhee, and Ashley Tisdale… they’ve all been spotted wearing these bangled beauties!

They don’t just make bangle bracelets, either. They also have necklaces, earrings, and mens accessories as well.

Check them out for yourself at A Village Gift Shop, located at 3 Village Square · Glendale, OH 45246.
