How did the year fly by so fast? We’re toasting the fabulous Alex and Ani on Newport’s Bowen’s Wharf who is celebrating their first year on Newport’s style scene. The much-loved collection by owner, designer and Rhode Island native Carolyn Rafaelian centers around eco-friendly pieces that enlighten the mind and empower the spirit. The innovative “expandable element” is the cornerstone of Alex and Ani designs. In lieu of a traditional clasp, wire bracelets, rings, expandable chain necklaces and hoop earrings include a sliding mechanism, making each piece adjustable and able to be customized to fit. Even better, the affordable bangles are as stunning as they are diverse which may be why celebs including Taylor Swift, Eva Mendez, Oprah, Courtney Cox, Renee Zellewegger, Cameron Diaz, Gweneth Paltrow, Drew Barrymore and Sandra Bullock have been known to sport them.
Since landing on our shores, Alex and Ani has become a beloved part of the Newport community, contributing to local causes and worthy organizations. In fabulous style, Alex and Ani is sharing this milestone with their customers by offering 10% off the entire store now through Sunday, so there’s no better time to “bangle up.”
Alex and Ani is located at One Bowen’s Wharf in Newport.
