Pura Vida Bracelets Club is a bracelet subscription box from Pura Vida! Each month you’ll receive 3 new coordinated bracelets.

FYI – there is some variation each month, so all subscribers may not receive the exact same styles.

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)


If you aren’t familiar with Pura Vida:

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.

Each month, you’ll receive a set of three bracelets.


Limited Edition Black Cat Seed Bead Bracelet – Value $26

This bracelet is made with matte black beads and charms, and that little cat is just too cute!


Studded Bracelet – Value $18

This bracelet is a pale pumpkin orange – perfect for this somewhat subtle Halloween stack of bracelets!


Solid Vanilla Bracelet – Value $5

These bracelets are made with wax coated threads so they are waterproof and easy to pull the adjustable bands.

And here are all the bracelets on:


(You can adjust them to make them as loose as you like).

This month’s package came with a sticker, too:



Verdict: I think this is a great box and I love the price point and value. $15 for $49 worth of bracelets is great! The bracelets are well made and the designs are lovely, too. What do you think of the October Pura Vida Bracelets Club? This might be my favorite set to date. That little cat charm is the cutest thing ever!

  1. If I subscribe do I get a box now? It says orders ship out within 24 hours of purchase, then says the normal shipping schedule. I would love to get these!

    • I don’t know if you will get the October box but even if you do there is no guarantee you will get these bracelets. Pure Vida says they send a variation out for there subs. (Because if that I actually just bought that black cat seed bracelet because I kinda love it. 🙂 ).

  2. My daughters would love this set! So purrfect for Halloween. 🙂 The price is already so good, but I am hoping for something special around black Friday.

  3. I love this sub! I think it’s great how you can mix and match your bracelets from each month and build a collection. These bracelets are so cute! I loved the cat charm, too. I think I want to pick up the adorable pumpkin bracelet from the shop, as well. 😀

    • ohhhh a pumpkin one??!!! I’ll have to check that out. My household is obsessed with pumpkins.

    • If you don’t already have a coupon code you can use JULIEEADS20 to get 20% off your entire order on their website.

  4. I received the exact same stack and I love it! So cute. Perfectly seasonal without being obnoxious about it. Seriously, is there anything cuter than that kitty? I think not. Also, I am a size 20 with not-at-all dainty wrists and I haven’t had any issues with sizing. Plenty of room to spare, in fact.

  5. These bracelets run small. Even their anklelets are small. That’s something you want to take into consideration before subbing.

    • When I was looking at their website the size given for the bracelets I looked at were adjustable 2″- 5″ in diameter and the anklets up to 6″. I don’t have huge wrists but 5″ would not fit my wrists

      • I think the 2″-5″ is the total length you can adjust it by. So take the “normal” length of the bracelet (fairly standard size based on what I have received so far…maybe 6ish inches) and you can add 2″-5″ to the length. So the size is actually pretty generous.

      • Thanks for the info on the sizing

    • I would have to disagree on the length. I am definitely a curvy plus-size lady (large size in Fitbit and Pandora) and have no trouble getting them to fit. Once I cinch them to where I want them size-wise, I have almost 2 inches of excess cord on both sides of the knot.

    • Funny you say that. I have an average sized wrist, usually wear a 7″-7 1/2″ bracelet. There is so much slack left when I tighten my bracelet I end up cutting some off and re-knotting and burning ends so they don’t unravel. So I’m just wondering how they would be considered small. They expand a great deal. I think like 3″.

  6. That cat bracelet – so much cuteness!!!

    I cancelled my sub and now I have the sads…

  7. I don’t even like cats….at all….and I love this set. I’m thinking of gifting it to my niece, though, because it just looks like her. The bracelets are really nice quality and so cute for Halloween without being like !!!!!HALLOWEEN!!!!!. As Liz said, subtle.

  8. got these too, when i saw that cat charm bracelet i was like whaaaaaaaaaaaaat i’m staying with pura vida forever!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. I was going to cancel for the winter months since I associate bracelets with summer but they totally won me over with this box. Send me something with a cat? OK I’m staying.

    • ” Send me something with a cat? OK I’m staying.” LOVE THIS! Thank you for the laugh!! 🙂

  10. I think this subscription is amazing! We received these cat charm bracelets before they even went on sale in their shop! I thought this subscription would be more like their leftovers they are trying to get rid of but instead we are getting brand new items! Also a great variety of different styles and colors. Pretty awesome 🙂

    • That’s such a great point – it’s awesome that they are sending their subscribers their new items! 🙂

    • I think this subscription service is a joke. My reviews of products, and experience with CSR is a joke. They don’t honor their policies, they don’t try any sort of retention, and when I am actually able to speak with someone – a ticket is sent out and takes days to attempt to be resolved. I would not recommend this to anyone
