Hipanema BraceletsHipanema Bracelets, $53-$337

Take your friendship bracelets to the next level! Hipenema braclets put the glamour of Brazil on your wrist with their gorgeous mix of multicolored thread, seashells and pearls.

The duo noticed how tourists loved to buy Brazilian bracelets as souveniers, but the bracelets were forgotten ones the knots holding them together frayed or broke. This resulted in the designers creating bracelets made of high-quality, sustainable materials that would hold up longer than souveniers from the street. Plus, no two are ever like, so they are unique- just like the fashionista who wears them! Get your hands on a few at
