Some men still scoff at the idea of wearing men’s bracelets of any style. There is still a stigma that “manly” men don’t wear jewelry. When it comes to wearable art, jewelry doesn’t make the man. Jewelry is something confident men wear. Men’s bracelets were worn in prehistoric times. They were made of bones and shells and believed to have powers to repel evil spirits. Later, men wore bracelets to advertise their wealth and power.
Custom Men’s Bracelets Are ‘In’ Style
The first Men’s Wear Fashion Week was in 2012. Since that time, men’s jewelry – particularly custom men’s bracelets – are more successful than the Men’s Fashion Weeks themselves. “Some industry figures say Instagram has had a lot to do with the appeal,” says The New York Times.
Custom Men’s Bracelets: Designed with Him in Mind
Custom rings are still the most popular jewelry item for men with “comfort rings” leading the pack. Comfort rings have domed interiors rather than the traditional flat interior designs. Men’s bracelets can be off-the-rack or customized. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, check out these 5 trendy bracelet stylings. You can use them as inspiration for your own, local, Palm Harbor-area designer men’s bracelets:
1. Chainlink Bracelet
This doesn’t have to be the traditional chain bracelet fashion-fearful men have worn forever. What’s your man’s lucky charm? Maybe it’s his sailboat. Perhaps it’s something so personal only you and he will know its true meaning. Silver is the most popular choice for custom men’s bracelets.
2. Clic H Hermès Bracelet
Gold-plate can be combined with enamel or his favorite gemstone for one of the most sophisticated styles in men’s bracelets. The Clic H Hermès bracelet is of singular beauty and can inspire similar men’s bracelets stylings.
3. Textile and Metal Bracelet
Men are drawn to the strength and masculinity of textile jewelry. Men’s bracelets featuring woven materials and precious metals are always stylish and always appealing. The Little Secret Classic designer bracelet by Thomas Sabo is a representation of the various ways you can customize simplicity to create a one-of-a-kind wearable art.
4. The Maxwell Bracelet
It’s called the “Maxwell” bracelet based on a design by Alice Made This. This is the minimalist man’s perfect bracelet. Using your favorite metal, this sleek bracelet is formed to fit and always looks terrific.
5. Yellow-Gold and Brown-Sapphire Bracelet
Brown sapphires are masculine and sensual. This type of bracelet can be custom-created using natural brown sapphire gemstone beads and gold accents.
3 Reasons Men Wear Custom Bracelets
- Cultural traditions can influence men’s bracelets. Some religions include bracelets and some countries do as well. For example, in Bulgaria, it is very popular for men to wear red and white string-bracelets to signal springtime.
- Men’s bracelets are feel-good wearable art. When a man looks good, he feels good.
- Men’s bracelets continue to signify wealth and status. You may not be in the highest tax bracket, but you can dress like you are.
