Why You’ll Love Engraved Jewelry
At Pura Vida, engraved jewelry is one of our all-time fave styles. Why? Because each piece is as unique as you are! Every item is handcrafted with your personalization, so there is nothing else in the world quite like it. Can you imagine a more perfect way to commemorate a special moment? These custom pieces make the perfect gift, but creating one for yourself is strongly encouraged as well.
Each Piece is as Unique as You Are
All of the pieces in our artisan jewelry collection are handcrafted with care and unparalleled attention to detail. But what makes them so special is that each one is slightly different and has its own character and personality.
When you add your own custom message or design to a piece, you make it *that* much more unique and special. Maybe you want to add your zodiac sign to the piece (looking at you, Leo.) Maybe you want to add a special message to keep you motivated and inspired. Perhaps you just want to add your name to it - or some other symbol that is unique to you.
The options are endless! But no matter how you decide to customize your jewelry, you’ll have a piece that is unlike anything else in the world.
Commemorate Big Moments With a Special Piece of Jewelry
Maybe graduation is *right* around the corner, and you’re looking for a way to celebrate all of your hard work. Or your wedding day is coming up and you want to have a special piece of jewelry to remember it with. There are countless big moments you’re going to want to reflect on for years to come, and engravable jewelry is the perfect way to do just that.
We love seeing dates engraved in these special pieces or beautiful messages/symbols that give that added personal touch. Creating these is a huge reason people come to our site wondering how to make engraved jewelry. But it’s time to talk about another huge reason to explore our customizable pieces…
These Make for Thoughtful Gifts, too!
Pura Vida’s handmade jewelry always makes for the perfect gift. The look on their face when they open up their Pura Vida jewelry on Christmas, a birthday, Valentine’s day, an anniversary? There’s truly nothing like it.
But, maybe it’s time to really go above and beyond. If you want to show that special someone that you really care about them, you can add a personal touch to their jewelry with the help of our engravables. A special message shows that you really put thought into the gift, and limitless combinations of text and symbols allow you to get really creative! Custom jewelry is one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give.

How to Get Jewelry Engraved at Pura Vida
We might sound like a broken record here, but this process is so. incredibly. easy. It will only take a few minutes of your day and won’t cost you an arm and a leg like other places offering custom jewelry. The first step? Finding the perfect piece…
Find the Piece You Want to Get Engraved
To kick off the process, you need to find the perfect base piece to start with. If you’re getting this for yourself, maybe you’re selecting a piece that fills in where your current jewelry collection is lacking or you’re choosing something you know you’ll wear all the time.
If this is a gift for someone else, try and take the same approach - what are they missing in their life? What do they love wearing? If you always see them wearing string bracelets or ankle bracelets, you can safely assume they’d love a new piece to swap into their daily rotation.
Warning: it may get overwhelming to choose from all of the different types of bracelets we have. Between braided bracelets, beaded bracelets, and metal bracelets, the options can feel infinite. For some inspo to help narrow down your choices, check out our lists of the best men’s bracelets and popular women’s bracelets or take a look at the best anklets, best earrings, and the best women’s necklaces to help you make the right choice.
Once you’ve found the perfect item you want to personalize, that’s where the fun part begins - coming up with that personal touch.
Come Up With Your Message
Now it’s time to get creative! The message you add to your piece should feel as special and unique as the person receiving it.
This can be as simple as adding a name to the piece. If this is a gift for your significant other, maybe you add both names with a heart in the middle! Or maybe add a meaningful message to help you embrace the Pura Vida way of life. Phrases like “slow down” or “breathe” can help remind you that it’s those little moments throughout the day that make life worth living.
Maybe the message you add to your piece is a special date - like your birthday, the day you met that special someone, or the day you made that BIG life change.
You can explore custom quotes that resonate with you, too. The possibilities are endless - which is why you should take your time when working through this step and think hard about the message that you want to wear on your skin every day. You have so many options to choose from – the only thing you can’t add to your jewelry is any sort of negative language - so let’s keep things positive!
Choose Your Font
Once you’re dialed in on your message, it’s time to choose your font. We offer a few different styles here at Pura Vida that span from fun and quirky to more modern and edgy, so curating the perfect vibe is effortless.

You can easily add special symbols to your jewelry, too. Maybe you want to add something like an animal print or a sports symbol. Maybe you want to add something like a sun, moon, butterfly, flower, mountain, peace sign - you name it, chances are we have it!
Calling the astrology obsessed: you can add a zodiac sign to the piece, too! Something for every Gemini, Pisces, Aries, the list goes on. It’s as simple as clicking on the symbol you want and adding it - that’s it.
