Pura Vida Bracelets: The Holiday Gift that Gives Back

UPDATE: If you missed out on our Black Friday sale, you’re in luck! We know that many of you had a hard time purchasing bracelets from our website so we have a special Cyber Monday sale just for you! Use code CYBER33 to get 33% off of your entire purchase. Offer ends tonight 11/28 at 11:59pm pst.

You’ve probably seen Pura Vida bracelets before. Check out any red carpet, high end department store or even the tan arms of the Victoria’s Secret models and you’ll see them; layers and layers of chic, colorful bracelets.


What you may not know is that Pura Vida is more than a hot accessory, it’s a movement. The phrase “Pura Vida” means “Ë�pure life’ in Spanish. It’s about learning to enjoy life slowly and celebrate good fortune while not taking anything for granted. Hand made in Costa Rica by the area’s finest artisans, these bracelets represent living life to the fullest and are meant to be a celebration of each day as a gift.

If you know someone in your life, guy or girl, that represents a pure life, share this beautiful message with them by stuffing their stocking with a couple bracelets… or three, or four. They’re meant to be worn together! Plus, at a price point of just around $5.00 to $12.00, you can pick up a few for yourself, too!

For every bracelet sold, Pura Vida donates 1% back to The Surfrider Foundation, an organization dedicated to protecting and preserving beaches and oceans worldwide.



These beauties are sold at over 700 stores across the US, including Nordstrom and Saks 5th Avenue, but you can get yours online at PuraVidaBracelets.com.

    Yay! So awesome to see this support! I am a campus rep for Pura Vida and I absolutely love everything they are about! As for the website, all I can say is keep trying! There are probably just so many people trying to access it today, but I’m sure the amazing team at PV is hard at work trying to fix all of the problems!

    @adventure327- Boo-Hoo. Never underestimate Lauren Conrad. There’s nothing wrong with this post.

  • Jen

    @adventurer327- They do more than 5-12 cents. This company is amazing and helps employ so many people! In addition to cleaning up beaches around the world, we aim to provide more and more full time jobs to the amazingly talented artisans of Costa Rica. After traveling all over Costa Rica, we came to realize that with very little tourism and the low paying jobs, local jewelers had a difficult time making ends meet. From the exponential growth of Pura Vida Bracelets throughout the United States, we are now able to fully support the food, clothing, and shelter of 15 talented artisans. Our goal is to recruit all the artisans of Costa Rica and get their beautifully hand crafted jewelry on the wrists of everyone in the world. From Costa Rica to the United States, Pura Vida for life! :)

    Pura Vida Bracelets have been so helpful sorting everything out via email, just made my order and yes they do ship to the UK :)

  • Kate Swan

    Ordering those on THAT website was honestly the most GRUELING process I have ever gone through when online shopping, but I got my order of 6 in!!! It kept saying “”Service Temporarily Unavailable””!! Not sure if anyone else had this issue or not but there must’ve been an insane amount of people ordering their bracelets that the site was timing out. I spent a good hour trying to get my order in! Patience and persistence is key on Black Friday ladies hahah! :)

  • Jennifer Purbaugh

    I tried to order one and when I clicked on the check out button….it didn’t do anything :( I WANT one but it’s not letting me purchase one.

  • Ximena Chacon

    hey everyone!! I’m from Costa Rica and these bracelets are beautiful! really worth it :) and oh! as lauren said, “”pura vida”” means pure life, but it’s like my countrie’s slogan. we say it ALL the time. example: when someone asks us “”how are you?”” we say pura vida, if someone is pura vida, that means they are very nice and friendly. you can use it all the time basically. so you already know, if you ever come to costa rica, don’t forget to say “”pura vida!!”” :)

  • K.K.

    I ordered some yesterday!

  • Liz Ashbaugh

    Thank you so much for this awesome gift idea! I ordered them for all of my wonderful law school friends (and one for myself!) as a holiday/good luck on finals gift! They were a huge hit! Check out my blog post to see how it turned out! :)
