I love triple A. No, not that triple A – Alex And Ani.
I was walking in downtown Nassau over the weekend and stumbled upon this wonderful standalone store. One word: wow! I loooove the interior and the salesgirls were just fantastic.
I was first exposed to Alex And Ani last Christmas while shopping at John Bull. I was so over the Pandora bracelets. Even though I own one, I was never a huge fan.
But last Christmas, I spotted Alex And Ani’s adjustable bracelets. It was love at first sight. I own quite a few bracelets and will continue to add to my collection until I look like a gypsy.
This time, I bought three rings. The new Wonder Woman ring caught my eye. I actually purchased the last one in the store that day. I was a semi fan of Wonder Woman when it was on the air, but of late, I’ve been taking on a lot and feeling very Wonder Woman-ish. So, I bought this ring in honor of that and have not been disappointed.
The ring is adjustable, which I love. The one thing I hate is that I have to remove my ring every time I wash my hands. I am anal when it comes to my hands and wash them quite frequently, so I hate having to constantly remove my jewelry. But, hey . . . that’s what happens when you buy jewelry made of recycled material and you want to preserve it. Oh, the things we do for fashion.
My second ring was a beautiful birth month ring wrap with Swarovski Crystals. I was born in August, so my birth stone is peridot. These crystals mimic the actual stone. I can’t tell you how much I hated peridot when I was younger. I thought it was the ugliest stone ever. Now, I have come to appreciate it. The fact that these crystals are set in “gold” also makes them pop.
Finally, all you need is LOVE. I bought this beauty because it was rose “gold” and just made me feel so happy. There was another ring with the word, lucky on it. But, I don’t do it for me.
These three rings were relatively inexpensive. My bill came up to $105.28 with taxes. I think they look so cute and are very bohemian-ish. They’re also a good way to jazz up your hands and any outfit.
Next time, I’m going for the necklace.
