The months are quickly passing us by and it’s time for brands to be delivering the collections for the remainder of the year. Yesterday I reported on the Pandora Autumn 2013 Collection hitting the stores and today is the official release of the Alex and Ani Fall/Winter 2013 Collection! Named Eden’s Equinox, the theme for this set is all about contrast – day and night, light and dark and features beaded bracelets rather than the simpler pendant and bangle bracelets that they’re best known for. This is something I first noticed with their Spring/Summer 2013 collection and it seems like they’re extending that look with this seasons’ offerings.
On trend for the fall, this collection features darker shades and I’m absolutely in love with the olivine beads especially the Fern Eden bangle. There’s also splashes of summer color with teal and coral making their way into this set. All the bangles complement one another so well and they are perfect for stacking. There are several styles available – larger beads, small beads, alternating metal and beads, and only one design of an all metal bangle. I prefer the larger beads especially since there are bands of crystals in between the sections. There are also two bangle bundles available named Sepia Equinox and Midnight Equinox for $158USD each.
Almost all the bangles are available in the Alex and Ani trademark Russian gold and Russian silver finish. While these are not made of precious metals, the bangles are made in the USA from recycled materials. The prices are between $38-$48USD, which is wonderfully affordable especially when you’re getting a few to stack. Alex and Ani are becoming quite popular overseas with retailers in the UK and Australia, and they are available from their online storeor from authorized dealers across the US. What do think of this collection? Do you have any Alex and Ani bangles?
