Hello again, savvy savers! Today I wanted to share with you one of my new favorite accessories, as part of my current Fall Capsule Wardrobe, my new Pura Vida Bracelets. Please note, we received the following bracelets were sent to us at no cost for review. Now, more about Pura Vida Bracelets.
For those who may not be familiar with Pura Vida, it’s best to start with their mission statement (from they’re about us section):
Here at Pura Vida Bracelets we dream to do more. That was our inspiration behind the Charity Collection. This collection was created to give back to different causes all over the world. We are partnered with over 190 charities and have donated more than $935,358 to date. We are also a member of 1% for the Planet, meaning we donate 1% of our annual net revenue to environmental organizations worldwide. We’re constantly looking to expand our charity line and we try to support as many causes as possible.
These beautiful Costa Rican bracelets help to not only keep your capsules fashionable but help to fund charities that are meaningful to our everyday lives, such as the save the Sea Turtles fund.
Now, if you know anything about my blog, I always try to buy fair trade or portion-to-charity purchases first. I was impressed with Pura Vida’s mission statement and was proud to include their pieces in my cruelty-free capsule jewelry collection.
Pura Vida Bracelets offers a wide selection online of individual bracelets and necklaces (which range in price from $5.00-$32.00 each piece), a bracelet-of-the-month club ($14.99/month cost) where you’ll receive 3 hand-picked bracelets (valued up to $50.00 value/month) from their current seasonal collections and their most popular styles to date, offer a selection of swimwear, clothing, and accessories (varied but affordable in price). Pura Vida also has available

The bracelets were comfortable. Also, worth noting, all of Pura Vida’s bracelets are made with wax coated threads, ensuring a waterproof product and a non-fraying, easy-to-pull, adjustable band fitting. The bracelets can be worn as tight, or as loose as you want. These bracelets are made to last!
From swing dresses to blanket scarves, boots, and tunics, these bracelets will bring a youthful twist to both my upcoming winter and spring capsule wearing seasons.

Personally, I think I received a clever, tasteful assortment of bracelets. I love the company’s mission statement, and the fact that their price point makes them affordable enough to buy individual pieces as well as to splurge on a monthly subscription for yourself is a bonus too! These bracelets are a real value for the quality of handmade bracelets you receive. Lastly, the design of each bracelet is modest, feminine, and are made to last, which definitely makes the worthy of my overall stamp of approval.
These are not just grown-up versions of friendship bracelets, they are lasting pieces sure to help you pull together casual looks on-the-go. Beyond this, I love the price, the value, and the presentation. This company is a keeper!
