At ALEX AND ANI, connecting to fans through your unique stories is an absolute highlight for us. We love this sweet engagement story sharing how one man used “charm” to express his love.


We would like to thank our incredible fans for letting ALEX AND ANI be part of so many special moments in your lives. Over the years, you’ve shared with us wonderful stories from every part of your life and every way ALEX AND ANI has allowed you to connect more deeply with your loved ones during your most memorable moments. You’ve shared stories of birthdays, anniversaries, and motherhood; and of both hellos and goodbyes. In the case of Dave and Rachel of Meriden, Connecticut, their December 21st engagement featured a meaningful charm bangle that symbolizes love!

I proposed to my fiancé Rachel at Hubbard Park during their Festival of Silver Lights on Friday, December 21, 2012. That evening, we decided to stroll through the park and see the beautiful holiday light display. There is a main stage area that was lined with lit Christmas trees and presents. We walked onto the stage and Rachel jokingly asked which present on the stage was hers. I responded by asking if she wanted her Christmas gift early and gave her a box with the ALEX AND ANI Love Bangle in it (she has a couple of other ALEX AND ANI bracelets so she thought it was [fun] to add to them). When I told her to turn it over, she was shocked to see that I had it engraved with the words Will You Marry Me?on the back. Then I got down on one knee and proposed with a beautiful ring. We are now engaged to be married in the fall of 2014 and could not be more thrilled. Thank you to ALEX AND ANI for helping me make this such a special moment!


Congratulations Dave and Rachel from everyone here at ALEX AND ANI. We so appreciate that you allowed us to be a part of your special moment and we wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
