Recently, a rep from the Alex and Ani boutique on Worth Ave in Palm Beach visited the hotel where I work and gave one of my coworkers (and newest friend) an energy infused, single charm bangle for each of the ladies who worked upfront. (So nice!) I was given the choice of a Fluer de Lis, a Peace sign and the one I chose:
The Star of Venus
This bangle just “spoke” to me. I knew we belonged together. I especially love the feminine power that this energy infused bracelet was supposed to evoke:
… yeah, this is totally my cup of tea. You can think I’m crazy, but I dig positive energy. 😉
It’s so adorable! and I love beads and bangles and this piece will make an excellent addition to my regular wears.
When I got home, I researched the company and loved everything about them from their eco-friendly practices and their new age philosophy. I think their mission statement says it all:
“Alex and Ani’s mission is to design products that adorn the body, enlighten the mind, and empower the spirit. Alex and Ani’s collections reflect a design aesthetic that celebrates each wearer’s unique essence. Owner and designer Carolyn Rafaelian believes it is her life’s work to inspire her customers to relish what is unique and authentic about themselves. Alex and Ani’s artistry lies in drawing out the beauty that resides within.”
I absolutely adore my Star of Venus bangle and always love getting free stuff! Thanks, Alex and Ani!! I will definitely buy another piece. Or two. Or more. I want a necklace so bad now! And there’s saint charms for good catholic girls like me! 😉
Check out the Alex and Ani site and see if there’s a location or retailer near you!
This is only the second time I’ve had the pleasure of writing about an amazing gift I’ve received from a business and it’s jewelry again!! (A girl could get used to this.) The first time it happened, the owner of the business, The Gauze Shop in Downtown Stuart, FL, really appreciated it!

Love my new Star of Venus bangle! Thank you Alex and Ani!
