From Rhode Island comes one of the hottest trends from this Holiday season. The Alex and Ani bangles (which are sold-out at Nordstroms throughout the state), are unique, chic, and eco-friendly. The beauty and individuality of the designs are truly unequaled, and contain a deeper, more spiritual essence that are meant to uplift sprits and inspire those who wear them. Each design comes with a card that explains the sign and meaning of the piece to explain the significance of its rich nature. These beautiful bangles come in a variety of styles in gold and silver, and feature an expandable wire to fit all wrist sized. Visit www.alexandani.com for more information
