Brands that have a meaning behind them are higher in my book than brands or companies that don’t. Alex and Ani is a jewelry brand that doesn’t sell accessories for the sole purpose of looking fashionable. Although their necklaces and bracelets are totally stylish, they each have a certain meaning behind them that I wanted to tell you a little about!

To start off, their bangles are definitely the brand’s main attraction. Their original style has a main symbol that dangles from an either gold or silver bracelet. Each symbol represents three things, such as love, friendship, loyalty, adventure, etc. For example, the Path of Life Charm Bangle represents strength, motivation, and knowledge. Another one of my favorites is the Sailboat Charm Bangle which represents courage, adventure, and transition. Each bracelet comes with a little card to remember the meaning behind it!Chelsea Crockett - Alex and Ani Bangles

Apart from bangles, they also have bracelets, necklaces, earrings, scarves, handbags, etc. Since you all know I am very religious, I love the jewelry that has a cross on it. You can find one on a necklace, a bangle, or a bracelet to not only represent Christ, but life, union, and immortality as well.

Alex and Ani has an awesome meaning and concept behind them. They make for perfect gifts considering each piece is usually around $30. I highly suggest you check them out. You won’t regret it!
