Our book, Path of Life: Why I Wear My Alex and Ani, contains personal stories from our wonderful fans about how our products have touched their lives. However, did you know it also contains personal stories from Designer Carolyn Rafaelian, Founder and Creative Director, as well?

Rafaelian addresses the reader quite a few times throughout the book, sharing her family history, how Alex and Ani came to be, and what it means to gift a bangle to someone. She explains,

“When you verbalize ‘I put this on you with the intention of love,’ you call that energy in, and that love now circulates around the piece. You’re saying, as I put this piece around you, I’m whispering into it my intention that you are surrounded by love, and the piece now becomes a sort of protective shield.”
