What is the difference between Rafaelian Gold Finish and Rafaelian Silver Finish?
Alex and Ani’s  Rafaelian Silver Finish and Rafaelian Gold Finish is their  most popular finishes. They are a rich, eco-friendly matte Silver and Gold finish plated on a brass base. They have an antique look from the oxidation process and are coated with anti-tarnish to protect the piece and hold its finish. Alternatively, Shiny Silver Finish and Yellow Gold Finish (also eco-friendly finishes) are a polished Silver and Gold plated on a brass base. They are also coated with anti-tarnish to protect the piece and hold its finish. Not all bangles are available in every finish.
*Update: As of 12/15/14  select Disney Alex and Ani bracelets will be available in  Silver Finish and Yellow Gold Finish.

How do I size my expandable bangles?
Alex and Ani’s Expandable Wire Bangles are adjustable down to two inches in diameter and expand to about three and a half inches in diameter. The average circumference (when they are delivered) is about seven and a half inches.

Can I add multiple charms to one bangle?
At this time, Alex and Ani does not offer the option to add multiple charms to their Bangles as their Bangles look best when stacked.

How can I clean my jewelry?
If your jewelry requires cleaning, use a mild soap, water and a soft cloth. Rinse with clean water and pat dry. Never use jewelry cleaner on Trend pieces. Jewelry cleaners are too harsh and may contain abrasives. Alex and Ani recommends using a polishing cloth for Precious pieces.

aurAlex and Ani Jewelry Care

This jewelry was created with the utmost love and care. Follow these simple steps to help keep your jewelry look its best year after year.

  • Always store each piece separately.
  • Apply beauty products such as perfume, hairspray or deodorant before wearing your jewelry as certain chemicals in these products may damage the finish.
  • Always remove your jewelry before swimming, bathing, doing household chores or using abrasive cleaners.
  • If your jewelry requires further cleaning, use a mild soap, water and a soft cloth. Rinse with clean water and pat dry. Never use jewelry cleaner on Trend pieces. Jewelry cleaners are too harsh and may contain abrasives. We recommend using a polishing cloth for Precious pieces.
  • Use a soft toothbrush to clean crystals if necessary.
  • Make sure your jewelry is completely dry before storing.
  • To avoid black markings either on your skin or the bangles, be sure to clean your bangles regularly. These markings are due to trapped oil and dirt in the metal and can be easily cleaned.
