ALEX AND ANI’s Spring 2017 Jewelry Collection: Bright And Beautiful

Ahhh spring! With its longer days, warmth and pretty blooms appearing in the forms of tulips and daffodils, it fills me with excitement. Unfortunately, in true Canadian form, we are about to be walloped with a monster two-day snowstorm. SIGH. What can you do, right? Well, you can boost your spirits with some sparkly jewelry from ALEX AND ANI.

Icy Moon Spike Pendant Necklace

When I saw ALEX AND ANI’s Crystal Fusion Collection for Spring 2017, I knew that I needed their beautiful Icy Moon Spike Pendant Necklace. This necklace is a show stopper: it truly looks like ice with its colour-infused Swarovski crystal pendant. The pendant is substantial too, measuring in at about 1.5 inches. It’s clear and crisp colouring highlighted by the sterling silver chain elevates everything I wear it with. To say this is “eye-catching jewelry” is an understatement. Of all my ALEX AND ANI pieces, this one garners the most compliments. Even my Mum tried to nab it during my last visit. I love you Mum, but you ain’t gettin’ this necklace.

The Icy Moon Spike Pendant Necklace also features four station beads, so you can add more charms to it if you wish. Personally, it’s such an impressive piece of jewelry, I wouldn’t add anything to it to distract from its simple beauty.

Path of Symbols Collection

Prettiest details – I’m obsessed with hearts!

I also scored the Path of Symbols Godspeed Cuff (I honestly chose it because the name is so cool) and the Nova Metal Wrap Bracelet, both in Rafaelian Gold. I love wearing jewelry that has meaning. Since I will be travelling soon with my husband to see my family, I thought these little sparklies could provide me with a safe journey full of love. The Godspeed Cuff symbolizes blessings, safe journeys and protection while the Nova Metal Wrap Bracelet encourages you to stop and listen to those positive cosmic vibes. So good, right?

Precious Threads

As I’ve really taken a liking to wearing “good intentions”, the PRECIOUS THREADS Necklace in Petunia was a must-have. This braided necklace symbolizes the past, present and future. As I’m a work in progress, wearing this necklace reminds to learn from the past to create a better present and future. In addition, the fashionista in me is a sucker for pale pink and taupe colour. By adjusting its sterling silver beads, this necklace expands to 32 inches long. I expanded it to its full length and wore it as a bracelet – you know, to funk things up.

Best For Last!

ALEX AND ANI Ottawa Bangle

Saving the best for last! ALEX AND ANI created an Ottawa bangle! I absolutely love it and wear it with pride as my home city has offered me a great life full of opportunity! With Canada celebrating its 150th birthday this July 1st, I plan on wearing my Ottawa bangle with pride and continuing to tell everyone that Ottawa is the loveliest “big, small town” on the planet!
