alex and ani fall

The Alex and Ani Fall 2017 collection has arrived! These new additions include some new Path of Symbols bangles, Limited Edition Sets, and beautiful beaded pieces.  In addition to the bracelet selections, some fun new necklaces have arrived as well. Check out our review of the new pieces below and make sure to stop by Versant to see these beauties in person!

Path of Symbols Tokens

alex and ani fall

Alex and Ani’s focus this season is Creating Your Universe.  This season is about finding a gift, a power that you didn’t know you had.  The newest additions to their token bangles include symbols of strength, vitality, and protection.  Each of the new symbols comes in a two-tone design.  We love that Alex and Ani are mixing both metal finishes in the tokens- it helps unify our gold and silver collections!

alex and ani fall

The three newly added symbols include the horn, arrowhead, and spirited skull.  Inspired by the Italian and Greek lucky cornicello, the horn is a symbol of plenty and holds the vital force of life.  A symbol of warrior energy, the arrowhead protects you on your journey through life.  The spirited skull symbolizes our foundation and history and the strength that these things hold.

Also included in the new fall release is a color infusion version of the Calavera.  Available in a shiny gold or shiny silver finish, this bangle is adorned with colorful details like a real sugar skull!

In addition to the bangles, four new cuff designs have been added.  The new evil eye joins the scarab, hand of fatima, and calavera in the cuff collection.  All of the new cuffs are available in both Rafaelian gold and silver finishes and are adorned with sparkling crystals.

Limited Edition Sets

Continuing with the whimsical spring and fall limited edition sets released, fall brings us three new bracelet sets. Each set includes one art infusion bangle in a shiny metal finish with enamel detailing.  This bangle is accompanied by coordinating metal and beaded bangles.

The Owl set of three is available in a shiny silver finish and is detailed with warm neutrals.  We love the forest and moon details on the owl’s chest!

The rabbit set of three is available in the shiny gold finish and is detailed with a dark blue-grey.

The moth set of five is one of our favorite Alex and Ani sets so far because of the beautiful fall color palette.  Adorned with colors of plum, marigold, and persimmon, this set is available in the shiny silver finish.

Beaded Bracelets and Wraps

In keeping with the sets, the beaded additions this season cover a range of rich fall hues.  Most of the beaded wraps are opaque with a pearlescent finish, making them very unique compared to previous selections.

A fan favorite, the leather wrap, has been reintroduced in a braided design.  Available in espresso with Rafaelian gold or nightfall with Rafaelian silver, these wraps make a bold statement.  We love them for ourselves and for the gentlemen in our lives as well!

The Alex and Ani fall collection also includes new symbol-studded metal wraps.  These wraps are available in both Rafaelian silver and gold for the Path of Life and Hand of Fatima designs.  We love these and are hoping for more symbols in the future!

Alex and Ani, Limited Edition, New Arrivals

The Alex and Ani 2017 Pre-Autumn Collection Arrives

alex and ani

The Alex and Ani Pre-Autumn mini collection has arrived at Versant!  Included in this small collection are redesigned versions of some of our favorite retired styles, a new Core style, and four new Words are Powerful Limited Edition seasonal bangles.

 

Some of our favorite core bangles were retired early this year and have, until now, only been available as the new cuffs.  With this new collection Healing Love, Godspeed, and Cosmic Balance are invited back into the bangle world!  We love both the meanings and the aesthetic of these three designs.  In keeping with the newer designs, the redesigned bangles have a more 3-dimensional feel and most of them feature sparkling Swarovski stones.

alex and ani

We love the new Cosmic Balance design with the halo of sparkling stars around the sun and moon.  The Godspeed is a nice balance of the geometric and the natural and makes a great addition to any charmed arm.

alex and ani

The redesigned Healing Love has the shape of an 8-pointed star and is the only new bangle style that does not include a crystal.  In addition to the three redesigned styles, a new symbol has been added!  The Evil Eye, a symbol of protection across cultures, is set against an ornate background and has a bright blue gaze.

alex and ani

In addition to the new core styles, four new seasonal Words are Powerful styles are included in this collection.  We love the Thankful (a great bangle to grab now and keep as a Thanksgiving gift!).  The Just Breathe is a fun gift for the Yoga girl.  Both the Wanderlust and the Create your Destiny are great gifts for the new grad setting out on their next adventure!

alex and ani

In addition to the new bangles, two new Rafaelian silver expandable necklaces have arrived in the Cosmic Balance and Evil Eye designs.  The necklaces include two moveable beads that allow for the addition of two more chain station charms.

 

Interested in the new Alex and Ani pieces?  It is always better to see them in person to get a true idea of their size and detail!

Serendipity Beaded Bracelets

Summer is the season of color, and Alex and Ani has embraced this with their new super-saturated beaded bangles.  With natural elements, such as wood, intermixed with brilliant faceted stones, these bracelets are gorgeous on their own and add a touch of summer to any bangle stack.
alex and ani summer

A lot of the new bracelets are the wrap-style, making them a great choice for any wrist size.  We love the mixture of the bright orange and fuchsia- it reminds us of a summer sunset!  The ocean-inspired emerald green and cobalt blues mixed with the Rafaelian silver finish are beautiful as well.

Looking to add a touch of color but don’t want to go too bright?  The bangles with wood beads strike a great balance between color and neutrals.  Some of the new beaded wraps offer a more muted summer tone as well- and they are only $28!

alex and ani summer

We love the look of stacking different summer beaded bracelets styles together for a beach-ready stack.

Colorful Cuffs

The beaded bracelets are not the only way to add some color to your charmed arm this summer!  Four new Limited Edition enamel cuffs have been released as part of the Alex and Ani summer collection.

alex and ani summer

With pops of color embedded in the Rafaelian gold and silver cuffs, these bracelets add some summer fun to the top of your wrist while your charm bangles fall below!  Each bangle has a different summer-inspired pattern.  We love the look of the blues with greek key and moroccan tile inspired patterns.

Giving Back (and Looking Good While Doing it!)

Four new Charity by Design bangles have been released as part of the Alex and Ani summer collection as well.  Some are redesigned old favorites (welcome back Prints of Love!) and others are entirely new bangle styles.

The new Sand Castle bangle represents a fortress of strength and love.  This bangles gives back to SOS Children’s Villages, who work to build families for children in need. The Print of Love Charity by Design bangle has been updated with a heart-shaped Swarovski crystal to add a little extra sparkle.  The new Prints of Love, like the old, gives back to the ASPCA.  The Apple and the Dolphin have moved from the core collection to the Charity by Design collection.

Now when you buy your favorite teacher the Apple bangle, not only are you giving her a heartfelt gift, you are giving back to Blessings in a Backpack to provide meals for underprivileged children.  The Dolphin teaches us to have a playful heart- what better way to honor this than to give back to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to rescue and rehabilitate marine animals and provide joy and education to the next generation.

Limited Edition Sets

The Alex and Ani Summer collection also includes some fun new Limited Edition sets.  Sets make a great gift, as they include a Limited Edition bangle and beaded bracelets to form a complete stack.
