I bought my first set of Pura Vida bracelets a few months ago because they were so pretty and looked casual enough that I could wear them all the time. The set I bought was called Coral Riptide and it reminded me of the beach. Then I started reading more about Pura Vida and where these products came from and their company mission and I was hooked. I’ve bought a few more bracelets, an adorable wave ring, and a necklace and they’re some of my favorite pieces of jewelry.

Their story is really sweet: two Southern California college students were traveling through Costa Rica and crossed paths with two bracelet artisans named Jorge and Joaquin. The colorful handmade bracelets seemed to capture the essence of their journey. At the time, Jorge and Joaquin were living in poverty. Griffin and Paul asked Jorge and Joaquin to make 400 bracelets to take home with them.
When they returned home to San Diego, Griffin and Paul put the bracelets in a bowl at a local boutique and within days, the bracelets sold out and everyone was asking for more. Griffin and Paul realized the significance of these simple string bracelets. It was more than just an ordinary friendship bracelet… it was a movement symbolizing the simple things in life.
“Pura Vida” means “pure life” in Spanish, a Costa Rican philosophy that encourages the appreciation of life’s simple treasures. Slowing things down, celebrating good fortune, and refusing to take anything for granted, embodies this laid back lifestyle.
Today, Pura Vida provides sustainable jobs to artisans worldwide and raises awareness for charities with products that give back. Pura Vida has partnered with over 190 charities and has donated more than $935,358 to date!
I love their bracelets because they’re adjustable – from 2-5″ in diameter, and they can be worn in groups or as a single bracelet. And they can be worn by people of all ages. My 12 year old daughter and I share them.
Their rings and necklaces are so sweet too. My daughter never takes her silver wave ring off (except for a hockey or soccer game)!
In addition to bracelets and rings, they also have necklaces, chokers, anklets, earings, beach towels, pouches and it seems like there are new products everyday. Their prices are so reasonable – but getting an additional 10% off helps too. Click here to get the 10% discount off your total order and enter code PURAVIDA10 at checkout.
