    Do men wear bracelets?

    Some people think that wearing bracelets is not manly, but if you take a look at history you will find that men have worn bracelets for centuries. Especially from the higher levels of society, like kings and knights.

    There were a couple of reasons behind this. Some men wore bracelets due to religious beliefs, such as to scare away evil spirits or as a good luck charm. Others wore bracelets to show off their wealth.

    The trend of men wearing bracelets has become widely popular again now for many years. It has evolved from being mainly a good luck charm/religious protection to being a fashion accessory. It is becoming common knowledge, yet there are still some people, especially from the older generations who believe that men shouldn't wear bracelets.

    Why should men wear bracelets?

    Wearing a bracelet can be a great way to show off your style and fashion sense. In fact, wearing the correct style of bracelet can be a nice compliment for your wrist and can bring out details in your watch as well. Bracelets can allow you to be more unique and be important as a first impression or a conversation starter.

    What's more, some bracelets are made out of natural gemstones, which are believed to have a positive effect on your mental attitude, meaning they can be used as positive charms to have a beneficial effect on your life.

    Types of bracelets for men

    In fact there are many different types of bracelets available for men. It can be quite confusing and difficult to pick up the bracelets that you like or that would fit your wrist, there are a couple of guidelines you can follow, though. 

    1. Make sure the bracelets are either made of natural gemstones or genuine leather to ensure high quality.
    2. Make sure the the metal charms are made of high quality metals! Most cheap bracelets use zinc alloy which will tarnish after just a few uses and can actually be poisonous to some people! Look for high quality stainless steel or silver.
    3. Make sure they match your wrist size!
    4. Think about whether you can wear it with your favorite watch
    5. The bracelet(s) you pick out should have a meaning for you.

    Cuff bracelets are generally made entirely of metal. It is important to make sure the metal used is high quality (such as silver or stainless steel). Be ware when these kinds of bracelets use plating. If a low quality plating is used, the bracelet can lose its color in a matter of days. High quality platings such as IP plating use precious metals and don't fade for years.

    When a cuff bracelet is made right, it will look and feel very luxurious, yet simple and last for years to come.
