Pura Vida’s New HQ in La Jolla, CA!

Pura Vida’s HQ has moved!

But don’t worry – we’re still in La Jolla! We’ve created a space that’s bigger, better, and the perfect destination for you to visit this summer.

Our brand new headquarters opens up to our new and improved store, where you can shop all of your Pura Vida must-haves, new arrivals, and some unreleased sneak peaks! Not only does the new PV HQ have all the bracelets, jewelry, and clutches that you need, but it’s extremely Insta-worthy due to our incredible Pura Vida mural – designed and painted by our very own graphic designer, Megan Wolfe. Don’t forget to snap a photo and grab yourself an exclusive sticker made of our mural too, which you’ll only find at the Pura Vida HQ!

Step outside of the store and into the work spaces of the creative minds of Pura Vida! You won’t find many concrete walls at the PV HQ – the exterior is strictly windows! Every desk has its own entrance to our wrap around balcony with incredible 180 degree ocean views of La Jolla Cove, Scripps Pier, and Blacks Beach.

Photos from all of our amazing #PuraVidaGoesGlobal adventures taken throughout the years are showcased throughout the office!

In the Pura Vida kitchen, you’ll find kombucha and nitro cold brew on tap to refuel the office during the day. During lunch, the PV team all comes together to hang out in the kitchen and common area to eat lunch, hang out, and challenge one another in a round of ping pong!  We pride ourselves in creating a space where everyone can gather and hang out to take a break from the regular work day.

For anyone having meetings, we have 3 areas for them to use! The Think Tank is our conference room, which is perfect for giving presentations through the TV or bigger meetings. Our 2 quiet rooms are not only beautiful, but well suited for smaller meetings, or when someone from the PV team needs to make a phone call and block out the noise.

Every desk in the office has incredible ocean views, but nothing can top our founders’ offices, with their wrap around sunset viewing and warm ocean breezes.

This is where all the behind the scenes of Pura Vida happens, and we can’t wait to see you here at the new store at our brand new PV HQ!

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

February 1, 2019 — by Kayla Holmes

Photo-Jan-26-14-41-42-960x640.jpg

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, who are you spending it with?! Whether a romantic date night or a Galentine’s night in is more your style, I have created the perfect gift guide to help you shop for whoever your Valentine may be!

for your girls

For the flower lover in your life, shop our new daisy collection.

The daisy collection is perfect for the free spirit who loves to collect flowers and gets excited about the little things in life. She’s the girl who loves small, dainty pieces, and gives off the best kind of energy. If this sounds like your Valentine, then she will fall in love with our daisy charm, daisy ring, and daisy choker!

 

For the adventurer, shop our Sierra collection.

If your Valentine is someone who is always spending her time outdoors, enjoys hiking, and loves to be one with nature and the wildflowers, then the Sierra collection is the perfect gift for her! The Sierra charm will always remind her of her favorite outdoor adventures, and the Sierra necklace and earring set will be her way of staying close to nature when she can’t be outside exploring it.

 

For the ocean lover, shop our wave collection.

Our wave collection is the perfect gift for your bohemian Valentine who spends her days at the beach, in the water and soaking up rays. The wave charms (in gold, silver, rose gold, and black), will show off her personality through the variety of string colors while staying in great condition due to its waterproof design. Help her add to her awesome jewelry collection with our wave charm, and she’ll love bringing a piece of the beach with her anywhere she goes.

 

for your guys

For the city guy, shop our Pura Vida cuffs.

If your Valentine is into trendy pieces and stacking on jewelry, then our Pura Vida cuff is the perfect gift for him! He’s the guy with rad street style and is always keeping up with the latest fashion trends. The simplicity of our PV cuff (in silver, gold, and black) is the perfect touch of jewelry for him without being too distracting. This cuff will be something that he loves and it will become a staple in his wardrobe!

 

For the surfer dude, shop our black wave charm.

Men’s jewelry is becoming more and more popular, which makes our black wave charm perfect for the man you’ll be calling your Valentine! If your guy is always heading to the beach, but also loves to wear simple bracelets, the black wave charm is perfect for him. Pair it with our black flat braided bracelet or our midnight thunder original (or both!) to gift him a stack he’ll love!

 

For everyone

For the charity supporter, shop our charity collection.

Our charity bracelets are the perfect thoughtful gift for those who love to give back. The animal lover in your life will be overjoyed knowing their new bracelet went towards a cause helping marine life (B.E.A.C.H. anklet), and the humanitarian will feel good knowing their bracelet is helping aid in breast cancer prevention (Boarding 4 Breast Cancer) or mental health awareness. Each charity bracelet donates 10% of net profits back to its corresponding charity, so give your Valentine the gift that just keeps giving – they will be thrilled to know they’re supporting a cause they love.

Shop any of the pieces in this gift guide and many others on our website to get the perfect gift for your Valentine! What are your Valentine’s Day plans this year? Let us know in the comments!

#PVtakesNYC! We were so excited to get the gang together in New York City this Fall season. There are too many things to see and do. The more we explored, the more we fell in love with this iconic city. You know what they say, “A city so nice, they named it twice!” Have you ever been to New York City? Follow along as we make our way around the Manhattan and Brooklyn and check out all the places we went to!

NOTHING beats a good city view! I mean look at those sparkling lights. Are we dreaming?!

We are living for all the rooftop hangs. Check out this view from the top of the Williamsburg Hotel in Brooklyn! Are you joking? All the heart eyes for this city.

Not to mention all the yummy coffee. Because caffiene breaks are essential, am I right?

What’s your go to drink?

Hanging out down under in the Oculus! This is part of One World Trade Center.

Did you even go to NYC if you didn’t walk across the Brooklyn Bridge?! One of our favorite landmarks we visited!

Any FRIENDS fans out there?! We took a stop to check out the apartment featured in the show. It doesn’t get more iconic than this! Everyone say cheeeese!

-Take the paint pen and draw what you see below (pineapple, palm tree, aloha and wave)

-Roughen up the sides with a razor blade or a sharp pair of scissors for a distressed look
