Best Bracelets For Men 2023

Men’s bracelets often don’t get the style recognition they deserve. A lot of attention is paid to watches (for anniversary gifts, graduations), rings (soccer championships, weddings) and even necklaces. But bracelets are more subtle accessories and are easily overlooked, but the best bracelets for men really up your fashion game.

Bracelets are not an impulse buy like sunglasses. You need to do some thought and consideration while buying it, especially if it is expensive and you want to build a collection. Sorting through the styles, materials, and designs available can be overwhelming. “It’s daunting because there’s so much to think about,” says fashion blogger Sabir Peele of Men’s Style Pro. I spoke to fashion stylists beforehand and used my own fashion knowledge to weigh up the different choices. Whether you want a discreet style like David Yurman’s Box Chain or a bolder option like Brilliant Earth’s Homme ID, here are the best bracelets for men right now.

What you should pay attention to when buying a men’s bracelet

size and style

There are no hard and fast rules, but think about which bracelets are the most comfortable for you to wear every day. “Measure your wrist size and choose a bracelet that’s about half an inch larger, or a full inch larger if you want a little more play,” says fashion writer and strategist Stephen Millioti. Then weigh your style options: do you want an open cuff that’s easy to slip on and off, or a closed chain that stays in place when you’re active and on-the-go?


Similar to clothing, the material of the bracelet is an important factor when making a purchase. “Invest in a good gold or silver bracelet that will stand the test of time,” says Milioti. Also examine the clasp closely. “Make sure it’s strong and secure, and for a more expensive item, ask for repair or replacement policies,” advises Miliot. Additionally, it helps to look for options that have lasting power and don’t have gimmicky aesthetics, Peele suggests. “Personally, I wear a David Yurman twisted cable cuff bracelet every day. It’s made from sterling silver with 18k yellow gold caps and can elevate any outfit.”


This is probably the most important consideration. Do you plan to wear your bracelet alone or combine it with others? Based on this answer, you could go for a thicker, chunkier style or a sleek and minimalist style. Also consider whether your bracelet is only for special occasions, in which case it can be more elegant and bold, or more for everyday wear with a relaxed, easy-going style. “Remember, your wrist should be talking to you,” Milioti says.

What is the best bracelet size to buy?

“Almost any bracelet can do two things when it comes to dressing up or dressing down,” says Peele. However, the most versatile width is three to four millimeters, as it creates a minimalist and tailored look, Peele finds.

How do you stack or style your bracelets?

Here’s a simple formula: Pair a metal chain with a beaded bracelet and a braided leather bracelet: These three styles always look good together as they offer an interesting mix of metals, textures and colors, Milioti explains. To shake up your look but not be too messy, stick to a coherent color theme: think all yellow gold or black bracelets (with a pearl bracelet and a leather strap, for example). Have a visual plan, then experiment a little to see what suits you best.
