Alex and Ani
On October 5th, I had the pleasure of attending and hosting the Alex and Ani Canada store opening event at the Montreal Eaton Centre mall. I had heard about the brand a while back in the USA and loved all of their symbolic charm bracelets; especially the Armenian ones because of my Armenian roots! 🙂
The store event was a success, tons of people came by really early due to the first 100 people got leather Alex and Ani pouches. David’s Tea and Squish candies were served all night. Their new fall 2017 collection got the most attention, I myself got a piece from this collection – the Armenian evil eye necklace (which also comes in a bracelet). I love that all of the Alex and Ani necklaces are adjustable.
I chose a few necklaces in order to be able to stack them all up. One of them, I chose from the fine jewelry section. This is one of my personal favourite collection due to the fact that they are either sterling silver or 14K gold plated jewelry. They are also more minimalistic looking than their other collections which is great for everyday. As seen below, I got the evil eye in silver, the hand of Fatima in gold and the custom chain paired with the sacred cross that has all the saints in each corner. All of these necklaces have small beads on them in order for you to adjust the length.
For those of you who know me, can tell that I’ve recently been into minimal jewelry pieces. Alex and Ani is starting to get more and more dainty pieces, including their charms which is great. I’m drawn to their different saints on the round pendants. I also love that they do collaborations with other brands like Disney and DC Comics’ Wonder Woman! I can’t wait to get my hands on their Harry Potter pieces which are out now!
