Men's Bracelets

History of Men's Bracelets

Bracelets became particularly fashionable for males in the United States throughout the 1950s and 1960s, when ID bracelets were widely utilized. Teenagers initially made it popular, but men quickly grew interested in them. This trend lasted until the early 1970s when ID bracelets went out of style. It wasn't until the 1990s that wristbands started to become popular again.

The culture for men's bracelets became fashionable again in the early 1990s due to the innovative design of Italian jewelry like chains and bracelets. The Italians created bracelets that were artistically appropriate for the period and introduced several varied shapes and styles that re-popularized bracelets among males.  They were famous for gifts on Valentine's Day, Christmas, and birthdays. 

Here at IceCarats, our men's bracelets come in many metals, such as stainless steel, carbon fiber, silver, gold, platinum, and titanium. 

Types of Men's Bracelets

Our men’s bracelet collection features Italian-made chain-link bracelets, tennis bracelets, cuffs, and beaded bracelets, all made with premium quality materials and more.  All of our men’s collections are designed for everyday wear.  

  • For men who aren't sure if they should wear bracelets, leather might be the best first choice.   Leather goes well with a wide range of casual and high-end outfits thanks to its neutral colors and masculine style.

  • Men's metal bracelets can be thin and classy thick, chunky, and bold. These bracelet styles are often referred to as ‘biker’s bracelets’.  

  • Metal cuff bracelets can make any outfit stand out. They are often made from a single piece of stainless steel and then worn down to give them a unique look. They're best for casual events unless you're wearing a thin silver or gold cuff. Generally, men with smaller wrists will find that thicker cuffs fit better, and vice versa is true too. 

  • Men's rope bracelets have the same look as leather bracelets, but they are easier to clean and less likely to get damaged by water. 

  • Because men's beaded bracelets are made from so many different materials, this category has the most colors and textures to choose from.

  • Men are huge fans of chain bracelets. They provide the manly style that most guys crave while still looking really stylish. Most chain bracelets are popular because of their basic form and durability. A chain bracelet, also known as a link bracelet, is a type of jewelry produced by joining links to form a band. Metal alloys or precious metals, such as stainless steel, silver, copper, and iron, are used to make the majority of chain bracelets.

  • Maintain simplicity. A men's tennis bracelet should be simple and timeless. A single strand of continuous round diamonds will shine but retain a masculine edge due to its simplicity.

    How to wear Men’s Bracelet

    Here are some general guidelines on how to wear Men’s bracelets but, you can be as creative as you wish for styling them up. 

    1. Treat your bracelets like watches: they should stay close to your skin, under any sleeves that are long enough to cover them.
    2. You can wear as many thin cord bracelets as you want, but too many thick metal bracelets simultaneously may not be the best look.
    3. Thin cord bracelets look great stacked next to watches but don't wear big metal bracelets together on the same wrist.
    4. Generally, it looks better to have one wrist free than to have both. If you want a watch on one hand and bracelets on the other, you can stack the bracelets with either the watch or stack fewer, thinner bracelets on the other hand for a more simple look. On the other hand, you could wear your watch on one wrist and a single bracelet.


    How many bracelets to stack with your watch?

    When stacking thicker pieces, three to five looks best. If you want thinner pieces, you can stack as many as you want. As a general rule, you shouldn't cover more than a third of your forearm.

    Are bracelets for men in style?

    Men's bracelets have become a big trend in the last few years, especially among those who care about their style. From leather bands to braided cord, wooden beads to metal cuffs, fashion icons and movie stars around the globe are stepping up their wrist game by wearing bracelets.

    How snug should a bracelet for a man be?

    A bracelet should be loose enough to move with your hand but not so loose that it falls off. You should be able to fit one or two fingers between the bracelet and your wrist. Most jewelry comes in one size that fits all.
