Alex and Ani = Eco-Friendly Jewelry

Alex and Ani is a jewelry company owned and designed by Carolyn Rafaelian. Rafaelian's mission is to make her pieces not only beautiful and unique, but Eco-friendly. The metals used in her line are handcrafted from recycled materials, and the entire line is made in the good ol' U.S of A.
Check out the website: Alexandani.com for more info.

Alex and Ani was created as a vehicle to enhance human consciousness. To elevate human awareness, we aim to create powerful, meaningful, and spiritual elements that embrace life and deliver a stronger sense of purpose. Founder and designer Carolyn Rafaelian says, "The love that lives in our hearts demands that we do our best for all people." Alex and Ani is an effortless mix of uptown elegance and downtown cool, ethnic chic and causal couture. Made to enhance one's own natural beauty Alex and Ani is hand crafted in the USA. Each piece in the Alex and Ani collection exudes its own unique style, creating trends rather than following them.

On a personal note, previously most of my concern regarding products made in the U.S.A. were about people in other countries not being paid a living wage and working under insufferable conditions. But Obama's got me feeling patriotic, so now I also care that my fellow countrymen are gainfully employed and getting the American economy in motion so that I may go back to my previous irresponsible spending. I am only half joking.
