Congrats to Alex and Ani’s fearless leader, Carolyn Raffaelian! Carolyn has been featured on the cover of Forbes magazine!

As the lead story in the “Self Made” issue, Carolyn has earned an 8-page editorial spread dedicated to her incredible journey and mission. It includes a family history of more than 50 years in the jewelry manufacturing industry that led her where she is today, starting with her grandfather passing through Ellis Island in search of life and promise. Here in Rhode Island — the Jewelry Capital of the World — her father founded his own jewelry company and paved the way for his daughter and ALEX AND ANI. Carolyn’s life is rooted in tradition, and the desire to set an example of humanitarianism for the next generation — including her own daughters.
