Trocadero loves Alex and Ani

Even before I started working at Trocadero, I was in love with Alex and Ani's genius expandable bangles. The first purchase I made after Alice's store opened was a set of three gold bangles to add to my collection. Everything about these bracelets is just grand.

Trocadero Pick: Alex & Ani

As a girl with a small wrist, Alex and Ani's patented design is what first caught my attention. The designers replaced the traditional concept of a clasp with a sliding mechanism, making each piece completely adjustable to the wearer's wrist. When you first put one on your wrist, you'll get it. The bracelets stretch to fit over the larger part of your hand and then spring back to a size that hugs your wrist perfectly, whatever its size. In both Russian gold and Russian silver, the bracelets come in a variety of sets: plain bangles, textured bangles, thin and thick widths and many adorned with charms, stones or vintage beads.

Trocadero sells many varieties of the sets, and Alice also has single bangles available in gold and silver with a variety of charms, including Zodiac symbols and Alex and Ani's signature "love" charm. If you can't decide between silver and gold, the store also has mixed sets that include both Russian silver and gold together.
