Jewel of the day: Alex and Ani Tried and True Bangle Set
I have an old set of sterling silver dog tags made by Alex and Ani, an AIDS fundraiser from the 1980s. I was surprised to see the brand name pop up and become very popular in the last couple of years. Also surprised to see they no longer appear to offer sterling silver (which, let’s face it, is not a vastly expensive material) but instead something they describe as “Rafaelain Silver Finish.” I am assuming this means silver plated.
This set of three bracelets is dubbed Tried and True, and they describe the theme this way: Live a life anchored in your truth and you will never be steered off course. Have faith in whatever comes your way. Anchor Metal Wrap, RAFAELAIN SILVER Finish. Shell Pull Cord Bracelelet, RAFAELAIN SILVER Finish. Plain, Expandable Wire Bangle, RAFAELAIN SILVER Finish.
The set retails for USD$78 online; they also have standalone stores.
