I just wrote about Alex and Ani last week, but today I’m putting the eco-conscious jewelry line back in the spotlight as the team behind the original expandable bangle and bangle bar has debuted a black obsidian bangle to support relief efforts in Japan. This bangle has been specifically designed to support relief of the recent disasters in Japan utilizing Alex and Ani’s Charity By Design process. With charms promoting healing protection and peace, the piece is available in a Russian Gold or Russian Silver finish, and is adorned with a black obsidian stone which is said help to ward off negative energy and keep thoughts positive. Together, Alex and Ani and Spreehive, Rhode Island’s local answer to Groupon, will be donating a portion of proceeds from the sale of the Obsidian Bangles to the Red Cross. In lieu of the regular $38 price, the bangle is just $19. Purchase through Spreehive.com and either pick up at Alex and Ani retail stores, including Newport’s Bowen’s Wharf locations, or order through the website if you do not live near any of the four retail stores.
The special offer is available for the next few days. Click here for information and to order.
Alex and Ani made headlines this week when it was announced the Rhode Island-based company will sponsor the Harbor Stage at Fort Adams State Park at the Newport Folk Festival on July 30-31 and at the Newport Jazz Festival on August 6-7. It’s the first time in the history of the Newport Jazz Festival and Newport Folk Festival one corporation will be a sponsor at both events.
