The stunning new collections by ALEX AND ANI are making the transition into winter a lot more bearable, and their new Path of Symbols Collection is no exception. The latest installment from ALEX AND ANI features re-designs of their most popular symbols as well as brand new symbols to add to your stack.

path of symbols fatima

POSITIVITY | ABUNDANCE | FAITH

The Hand of Fatima originates from the Hebrew word hamesh, meaning five. An ancient talisman that symbolises feminine power and often used as a fertility symbol, the Hand of Fatima is worn as a defence against negative energy as it deflects evil away from the wearer. Wear your Hand of Fatima bangle to channel the forces of good, embrace the energy of the Hand of Fatima that promotes healing and fosters miracles.

wildheart path of symbols

PRIMAL | POWER | NIGHT

The panther ignites passion and willpower. Paired with the alchemical symbol of antimony, a metal that represents the animal in each of us, the panther is a fierce guardian of the heart. Awaken your wild heart and reclaim what’s yours with the ALEX AND ANI Wild Heart bangle.

path of symbols cosmic balance

ONENESS | ALIGNMENT | CELESTIAL

Channel cosmic energy with the new ALEX AND ANI symbol, Cosmic Balance. Moon and sun, yin and yang: the balance of nature is essential. One force without its opposite is powerless. The moon reflects the light of the sun, illuminating the night when life rests and restores itself. Manifest your dreams with the power of masculine and feminine energy. When both align, all is possible. This fabulous symbol hangs from an expandable wire.

 Among the sterling silver charms added to this collection is this adorable family charm. Within the 2012 Autumn/Winter collection, Pandora released a similar charm in a combination of sterling silver and 14ct gold.

Emerald - birthstone for MayWho first beholds the light of day

In spring’s sweet, flower month of May

And wears an Emerald all her life

Shall be a loved and a loving wife

The gorgeous green tones of Emerald welcome anyone born in May. This stunning stone is associated with faithfulness, friendship and relationships, making it the perfect stone for all you romantics out there. It is said to symbolise understanding, patience and memory, and is mined in South America and Africa. By weight, it is actually the most valuable gemstone in the world, thanks to its glorious, rich green colourings.

In mythology, Emerald was said to be the talisman of Venus, the goddess of love, and the gemstone is still associated with loyal and loving relationships. They were also popular with the ancient Egyptian royalty, and Queen Cleopatra is said to have owned pieces of Emerald jewellery.

Jewellery designers have long been attracted to the fresh, vibrant colour of Emerald, and the colour green is associated with new birth and regeneration. It goes especially well with the warmth of gold, and creates gorgeous pieces of jewellery that can be treasured for years to come.

April Birthstone – Dazzling Diamond!

Celebrate April birthdays with the birthstone for this month, Diamond.

Diamond - the birthstone for April

“She who from April dates her years,
diamonds shall wear,
lest bitter tears
For vain repentance flow.”

For all you lucky ladies born in April, it’s the most dazzling of all precious stones, Diamond, that represents your month of birth. The beautiful sparkle of Diamond has been desired by man for hundreds of years, and it has become one of the most sought after stones for jewellery design. Not only does it glitter like no other stone, but it is believed to enhance relationships and aid your inner strength, representing clarity, balance and innocence.

Diamond takes its name from the greek word “adamas“, meaning invincible, for its incredible strength and hardness – it is the hardest substance found in nature. Diamonds are classified by the 4 Cs clarity, cut, colour and carat weight – with the clearest stones being the most expensive. Though white or clear diamonds are the most common, they actually occur with many different colours and tints – it is possible to find pink, yellow and black Diamonds, though these can be incredibly rare and valuable.

Diamond is usually set into Gold jewellery, although many innovative companies such as Hot Diamonds and White Ice are now combining the luxury of Diamonds with the simplicity of Sterling Silver. Jewellery designers often opt for manmade Cubic Zirconia instead of Diamonds, which offers a similar sparkle for a much lower price – Thomas Sabo and Fiorelli, for example. Diamond is also the traditional stone in engagement rings, thanks to both its beautiful sparkle and its apparent potential to enhance relationships.
