The customization doesn’t stop there: not only can you get the bracelet engraved with a word, phrase, or date, but you can also choose from five different fonts! 

The choices span from the classics like “Courier” to Pura Vida’s very own “chasing waves” font. There are plenty of options to help you find the best choice for you. 

Step 4) Add Symbols if You’d Like!

After you engrave words or dates on your custom bracelets, we also have *dozens* of symbols that you can choose from to make your piece even more special.
