While this bracelet can stand alone, we love mixing different styles: try layering with the Pura Vida Gold Circle Bracelet.

Birchbox Breakdown

The friendship bracelets we wove long ago at summer camp were well-intentioned—but (and we say this with nothing but love for our childhood selves) they usually ended up as a knotted mess. These grown-up versions from Pura Vida are both good-hearted and good-looking: The brand hires artisans in Costa Rica to craft these fun, youthful accessories—plus donates a part of its profits to charitable causes.

How to Use

The artisans weave these charming bracelets by hand, making each one just a little bit different. A delicate logo charm is the only hardware on this piece; the bracelet closure slides to adjust from two to five inches in diameter.

Waxed polyester thread and gold-plated charm

Not for me at THAT price.

I understand that most of us who shop here are a different breed...but 20.00 for a bracelet that's made out of string? I don't think so. And then you tell me it's made in Costa Rica besides, so I know that it cost about 3.00 per dozen...so that seals the deal even more. I get that we pay a little more for most things here...but this is a little much.Thanks, but no thanks.

What is not to love

Pura Vida has a great idea. The bracelets are well made and there are many options if you go to the website. I first was introduced to these before getting them through Birchbox and was excited the Birchbox added them to their site.

Absolutely love it!
Purchased

The reviews for this bracelet were SO confusing because I ABSOLUTELY love this bracelet! It's cute and matches with anything, I wear it on my wrist amongst my others. I'm not sure what anyone means about it not being durable because it is exactly that--it's woven in such a way that can not be undone, and I really like how it adjusts. When you first adjust you do have to be careful because it gets a bit stuck, but I still couldn't see this thing tearing or breaking. It's waterproof, which is my absolute favorite because I like to keep my bracelets on at all times for daily wear. Purchased about a month ago and shows no signs of being anything other than exactly how I got it! LOVE IT--and the cause is a HUGE plus :)

Cool Bracelet

I got a pair of these as part of the conscious consumer box. Nice, well made bracelets but don't seem to be adjustable.

Fragile and Expensive...

Gave this one to my husband for father's day (after I rifiled through his box and took out what I wanted) He tried to put one on, and although he's a big guy, the bracelets were tight at the biggest setting...Also, one broke almost immediately...Cute bracelets for a petite, careful guy...not mine!
