After Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico in September, many celebrities came together to raise funds for the ravaged island. Now, jewelry brand ALEX AND ANI is joining the relief effort, creating a limited edition collection of their iconic charm bracelets whose proceeds will go towards rebuilding the areas affected by the hurricane.
“The devastation in Puerto Rico really hits home for us, as our team members across three ALEX AND ANI stores and thirteen retail partners have been significantly affected. 100% of proceeds from the Puerto Rico Bangle will go directly to Unidos Por Puerto Rico so we can give aid where it’s needed most,” ALEX AND ANI’s President, Cindy DiPietrantonio, told People en Español.
The limited edition collection includes two bracelets with adjustable widths, in both silver and gold, that features an illustration of a lighthouse by the sea over Puerto Rico’s flag. Each bracelet costs $32 and are available on alexandani.com through November 17th.
Apart from the brand’s standard collection, which predominantly consists of precious stones and spiritual symbols, Carolyn Rafaelian, the founder and CEO of ALEX AND ANI, has created several memorable limited-edition collections revolving around themes such as Mickey Mouse, Day of the Dead and Harry Potter.
