First Day of Giving – Two Alex & Ani bangle bracelets from Gift-ology!

The Marketplace Mall is thrilled that the first gift comes from its newest retailer, Gift-ology! The store has donated two Alex & Ani bracelets from it’s newest collection – these bracelets just arrived in store this week!


Like wondrous treasures found in the ocean, these sparkling glass beads are sure to inspire the enchantress within. Adorn yourself with the Shimmering Sea Bead Bangle to pursue your deepest passions and let your inner goddess shine.

Every snowflake features a unique, delicate structure that creates a powerful force when gathered together as snowfall. Caught between the fluidity of water and the solidarity of ice, the snowflake is a transitional symbol that drifts peacefully from above. A reminder that every person has the ability to transition and create change, the snowflake honors individuality.

Alex and Ani, LLC offers eco-friendly, positive energy products that adorn the body, enlighten the mind and empower the spirit, designed by Carolyn  Rafaelian and made in America. Gift-ology is the only retailer at any of the Rochester Malls to carry this highly sought-after line.

Gift-ology’s promise of “perfecting gift-giving” is on full display at its new location. In addition to Alex & Ani, Rochester-area shoppers will find premiere brands such as Andrea Valentini, Uno de 50, Petra Azar, Yankee Candle, Story Jewellery, Farmhouse Fresh, Nora Flemming and many more.

Make sure you follow Gift-ology on Facebook!

Please post in the comments why you’d love to win these Alex & Ani bracelets. The store manager will choose a winner on Monday, December 2. We will post the winner on this blog and on Facebook. Good luck!

  70. Karissa hefferon says:

    Though I have never owned an Alex and ani bracelet I have always wanted to. I am obsessed with the meaning of having an Alex and ani bracelet. It’s a story, a memory, a patch on the hole of a heart, or a smile created. I love hearing all my coworkers talking about what each of their bracelets mean to them. Many have the same symbols but very different meanings! And that’s what I love about it. I would be honored to become a part of the Alex and ani tradition by being chosen to win these bracelets! It would be a beginning to my story and a memory I would certainly never forget. Happy holidays and merry Christmas!
