Just ahead of the 4th of July weekend and celebration, Alex and Ani is releasing a mini-collection called America the Beautiful. Not only are their products made in the US, but Alex and Ani has a strong commitment to giving back to the community through their Charity by Design line. This new collection honors Independence Day, or perhaps more accurately, is a good representation of the fireworks associated with this festive holiday.
Each of these bangles are named after lyrics in the song America the Beautiful, an anthem we all learn in grade school. I’m excited to see not only gold and silver colors available here, but the introduction of rose gold as well. However they’re not the matte finishes Alex and Ani usually uses but shiny metallic which makes them a bright accessory. The bracelets all feature different etched details as well, and I can image that they stack incredibly well together.
Based on the previews offered on their Facebook page, I was pretty sure I was going to like the new pieces and they’re a big hit for me. They remind me of the gold etched floral Hawaiian bracelets that are so popular on the island. Alex and Ani are eco-friendly products made from recycled materials, and they’re very affordable at $28USD each. They can be purchased on the official website or my featured retailer, Smaxx and Kade. What are your thoughts about this collection? Do you like the new rose gold option?
