I’m loving these brand new Alex and Ani Claddagh charms (full disclosure: I’m as Irish as they come…). Symbolizing love (the heart), loyalty (the crown), and friendship (the hands), the Claddagh dates as far back as the 17th century and is given as a token of friendship or love. This Claddagh expandable wire bangle is available in a Russian Gold and a Russian Silver finish and retails for $28.
The Alex and Ani Newport store is located One Bowen’s Wharf, (401) 849-3002. For other locations, click here.
I spotted Alex and Ani’s bangle of the month when I stopped by the Bowen’s Wharf bangle boutique last week and stopped in my tracks. It’s a favorite among my friends and a lot of Newporters as the compass is synonymous with the nautical lifestyle, and now, it’s on sale. Normally $38, the bangle is $33 this month, and represents unity, balance and prosperity. One of the oldest navigational tools in history, the compass can also act as a metaphor, helping one to chart their own life’s course.
Bangle Bonaza! Alex and Ani Releases Limited Edition Bangles + August Bangle is Nautically Inspired (and $5 off)
Alex and Ani has been getting a ton of press lately, due in large part to the eco-friendly jewelry company’s sponsorship of the Newport Folk Festival and Jazz Festivals. In addition to the positive energy surrounding the Alex and Ani Harbor Stage this past weekend and the jazz musicians who will grace the stage this coming weekend, Alex and Ani Charity by Design released a Live Music bangle to honor of the Newport Festival Foundation, a limited edition Newport Folk Festival bangle that symbolizes resilience, inner strength and undying love (the charm itself was attached to entry wristbands for folk festival ticket holders).
Looking for something a little more nautical? This month’s featured bangle features an anchor charm that comes in Russian gold and Russian silver. Take $5 off the original $28 price for this Newport-inspired piece that represents tranquility and hope, and encourages safety, courage and piece of mind.

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.
