I’ve built a habit of buying bracelets when I’m traveling, like a remembrance of some sort. But I realized that they don’t really last long that I end up chucking it in the bin at the end 🙁
When I first saw Pura Vida bracelets, I was quickly drawn to the styles available because it is really something that I will wear and very similar to what I bought before. And, they don’t just have bracelets. They have clutches and Pura Vida clothing for men and women too.
Every Pura Vida Bracelet is carefully handcrafted by artisans in Costa Rica. “Pura Vida” is Spanish for “pure life”, a Costa Rican philosophy that encourages the appreciation of life’s simple treasures. Pura Vida means choosing to live life to the fullest.
What I love about Pura Vida is the fact that they have a Charity Collection, created to give back to different causes all over the world. Currently, they are partnered with over 190 charities and have donated more than $666,721 to date! Pura Vida is also a member of 1% for the Planet, wherein they donate 1% of the annual net revenue to environmental organizations worldwide.
I honestly think that what Pura Vida is doing is super amazing! You get to wear these amazing pieces and at the same actually giving back to the community. I’ve been wearing their bracelets and I can say that they are really good quality and made to last.
So these are what I got:
November Birthstone Seed Bead
Rose Gold Mandala in Vanilla
Black Hamsa in Black
Woven Seed Bead in Gold Digger
Hakuna Matata Anklet
Gold Moon Ring
Boho Vibes Clutch
Pura Vida Tank Top in XS
The bracelets are 100% waterproof, wax-coated and iron-coated copper “P” charm to ensure that you can jump in the beach, take a shower, surf, snowboard and more while wearing them. You don’t need to worry about the color fading or anything like that. While the clutch is perfect to bring to the beach because it has a Water Resistant Interior Lining, Fully Lined with 100% Cotton and more.
I’ve been wearing this tank top to the beach, malls, everywhere. It’s perfect for summer and super comfy. Oh and btw, for every clothing bought you get a free randomly selected bracelet.
