Pura Vida Bracelets, La Jolla-based jewelry and accessories brand with almost 2 million followers on Instagram, launched a line of new, engravable metal jewelry on January 21, 2020. The brand, widely beloved for its handcrafted string bracelets, is thrilled to introduce a completely new category to its community featuring customizable pieces, ideal for gifting. The launch marks the biggest product expansion since the debut of Pura Vida’s original metal jewelry pieces in 2016. Since launching the metal line, the brand has grown the collection to become 30% of its overall sales.

This news comes seven months after Vera Bradley acquired a 75% majority stake in Pura Vida Bracelets for $130M; Pura Vida continues to operate independently.

The new collection consists of two ring styles, two bracelet styles, and one necklace style, which are available in gold, rose gold, and silver. The pieces can be engraved with fonts including Lucida Handwriting, Courier New, or the Pura Vida brand font, as well as with Greek letters. All items can also be engraved with signature Pura Vida graphics, including a pineapple, tree, heart, and waves.

“We’ve been discussing expanding our metal collection for some time now,” says Griffin Thall, CEO & Co-Founder of Pura Vida Bracelets. “Our original metal pieces were so well received – our wave ring is actually one of our best sellers! We’re always looking for new ways to provide our brand fans with items that we know they’ll love. We think our community will be thrilled with the option to customize their Pura Vida accessories, whether it be for a friend, family member, sorority sister, or coworker – the options are endless.”

Pura Vida Bracelets is a Costa Rica-born and Cali-bred lifestyle brand that sources ethically-produced handcrafted pieces from over 800 artisans worldwide. Inspired by Costa Rica’s “pura vida” philosophy, the brand’s simple, bright, and colorful pieces embody a lifestyle that encourages the appreciation of simple pleasures and living life to its fullest.

Pura Vida’s engravable collection is available on PuraVidaBracelets.com. Bracelets are $22, rings are $20 and necklaces are $30.

About Pura Vida Bracelets:

Pura Vida Bracelets was born when friends Griffin Thall and Paul Goodman crossed paths with two talented bracelet artisans, Jorge and Joaquin, while on a post-grad surf trip to Costa Rica in 2010. Jorge and Joaquin made colorful, handmade bracelets that seemed to capture the essence of the “pura vida” lifestyle, which means “pure life” in Spanish and is a philosophy that encourages the appreciation of life’s simple treasures.

In an effort to help the artisans and bring a piece of Costa Rica back stateside, Griffin and Paul bought 400 bracelets to sell at home in San Diego. They sold out in a matter of days and the rest is history. Today, over 800 artisans in Costa Rica, El Salvador, and India can depend on a steady income and positive working environments, thanks to the support of Pura Vida’s community.

Giving back has always a core value at Pura Vida. Since 2010, the brand has partnered with over 175 charities around the world as a part of their ongoing charity collection and has donated more than $1.9 million to environmental, health and humanitarian causes. The brand’s recent Australian Fire Relief bracelet sold out in under 24 hours and provided over $23K to the cause.

During the summer of 2019, Vera Bradley acquired a 75% majority stake in Pura Vida Bracelets for $130M.

Pura Vida has expanded its collection from bracelets to other jewelry items and accessories. Visit www.PuraVidaBracelets.com for more information or follow the brand at @puravidabrac on Twitter and @puravidabracelets on Instagram.

The clever ‘dog bowl that stays’ now available in both Large and Small sizes – because mini mutts are messy too!

Following the incredible success of PetWeighter™ Large, this ingenious dog bowl is now available in a Small size – catering for the needs of puppies and more compact canine breeds. Produced by award-winning British family business, Peak Pet Products, PetWeighter Small comes in the same six contemporary shades as its bigger counterpart to complement all modern decors and interiors, and costs $24.99 from Amazon.com, PetWeighter.com and authorised pet retailers.

First launched in 2016, PetWeighter is an innovative product that has revolutionized feeding time for four-legged friends. The clever invention features a unique design to prevent the spills and mess that can often result from an ‘ever-moving’ food or drinking bowl. It also ensures a constant supply of water, whatever the season*. The original PetWeighter Large was the brainchild of Peak Pet Products owner, Rob Peacock, who created the product for his much-loved Schnauzer, Charlie. When Charlie was diagnosed with diabetes, Rob looked for a way to stop him tipping up his bowl, while providing his canine pal with access to plenty of water throughout the day. The rest is history and PetWeighter was born!

Strong and sturdy, the two-part PetWeighter Small comprises a removable, food-grade plastic bowl on top of a base that can be filled with sand, water or a combination of the two. This means the bowl will not move when a dog nudges it, and stops the container and contents from traveling across the kitchen or garden. It will also stay put if a clumsy human kicks it by accident or a mischievous child knocks into it while playing on the floor.

Simply unscrew the cap, fill and then secure again, replacing the bowl on the top, for a robust receptacle that will always ‘sit’ and ‘stay’! PetWeighter Small weighs in at just over 15lb when filled with a mix of sand and water – heavy enough to prevent food and water spills by even the perkiest of pups!

The PetWeighter Small top bowl is detachable for washing or filling with food and can be placed on a dishwasher rack for a thorough, hygienic clean. The upper bowl is then easily aligned to the base and locked straight back into place with a simple click.

The rounded corners of PetWeighter make it conveniently chew-resistant, while the bowl itself has no dirt-attracting cracks or crevices. As well as providing ongoing access to water, PetWeighter is great news for arthritic dogs** at meal times as its elevated height (approx. 6.6 inches) removes the need to stoop down, which can put stress on joints, necks and shoulders, particularly in older animals.

PetWeighter Small is available to buy in six modern color combinations: Red, Pale Blue, Baby Pink or Hot Pink with a mid-gray base, or Pearly White and Platinum with a dark gray base. Customers can also purchase a spare, replacement or different-colored top bowl separately for just $12.99.

Rob Peacock, owner of Peak Pet Products Ltd, said, “When we first developed PetWeighter, we were initially serving the needs of larger hounds, who are notoriously ungainly when they eat and drink. But following many requests from customers around the world, we identified that smaller breeds can be just as disorderly with their dinner. So we responded with the PetWeighter Small and hope it’s the answer to a cleaner kitchen for all!”

By the way, PetWeighter won the Silver accolade in the international PetQuip Industry Awards 2018 in the category ‘Pet Product of the Year – Health and Technical’. Hungry for more information? Please visit www.petweighter.com.

PetWeighter Small dimensions/capacity Height with base approx. 6.6 in x width 7.5 in x depth 7.5 in Food capacity 7oz Weight with water and sand combination in base approx. 15lb 5oz

  • Owners should ensure that bowls are filled regularly to ensure a constant supply of fresh drinking water.
  • Before taking any specific actions in relation to a pet’s health or behavioral issues, PetWeighter would advise owners to seek independent advice from a veterinary practitioner.
