Born in 1966, the future founder of “Alex & Ani” Carolyn Rafaelian grew up in a family of Armenian immigrants. Ralph Rafaelian, her father, was a jeweler who used to work for such famous jewelry brands as Monet and Trifari, and later founded his own jewelry company. Undoubtedly, it was him, who instilled in his daughter love for jewelry art.
Founded in 1990s by Carolyn Rafaelian, the company’s name consists of two names of her daughters Alex & Ani. Early jewelry design by Alex and Ani LLC resembles Eisenberg costume jewelry with the rich use of crystals and rhinestones. In fact, when she first began creating jewelry, she used some molds purchased from Eisenberg.
Noteworthy, located in Cranston, Rhode Island, ‘Alex&Ani’ is exclusively manufactured in the United States. Besides, the company doesn’t import materials, using recycled materials purchased from local Rhode Island mills. Signed Alex & Ani on the back, each piece is hand crafted with high quality and craftsmanship. According Carolyn Rafaelian, their jewelry pieces are eco friendly. “We adhere to higher environmental standards and rules”.
