Since we introduced bracelets to our collection of men’s accessories, they have become some of our favourite pieces for both everyday wear and more special occasions. Whether we are accessorising a suit and a pair of cufflinks, or jeans and a chunky knit, we find that a cuff bracelet always offers that extra detail to complete a look. But, if you have never worn a men’s bracelet before then where do you start? Which design, finish and material most suits your image? This week we look at the different types of men’s bracelets that we offer at Alice Made This and show that there is something for everyone, whatever your personal style. Men’s bracelets cuff
At Alice Made This, the cuff bracelet is our signature design. Tactile, simple and refined, our cuff bracelets for men are ideal for adding versatility to any outfit. By pinching together or gently pulling apart, cuff bracelets fit perfectly and are available in your choice of material, finish and texture. If you’re looking for a timeless piece that you can dress up or dress down, allowing you to wear it for years to come, we recommend the Alexander brass bracelet or Maxwell copper bracelet.

Men’s bracelets gold Whether you are accessorising a tuxedo, a suit for work or a t-shirt and jeans, you can’t go wrong with a gold bracelet for men. With rich metallic tones, a gold bracelet offers warmth, elegance and class. If gold is your metal of choice, then we recommend our P4 Bancroft bracelet in 18ct or 9ct gold and our M4 Bancroft bracelet in 18ct and 9ct gold. Photo credit: Jane Looker
Men’s bracelets silver Perhaps silver is more your style? A silver bracelet for men can create a crisp, fresh and monochrome finish, ideal for that important business meeting as much as heading to the pub with friends. If you’re more of a ‘silver person’ then we recommend our Harland silver bracelet, P4 Bancroft silver bracelet or our B4 Bancroft silver bracelet. Photo credit: Oliver Martin
Mixing metals with men’s bracelets
If you want to go for a contemporary look and have some fun experimenting with your accessories, then why not try mixing the metals of your men’s bracelets? Sometimes rules are made to be bent and, when it comes to contrasting metal tones, we couldn’t agree more. Form a refined focal point by stacking gold bracelets with silver bracelets, or layering copper with steel or brass, being creative by juxtaposing tones and textures. For example, we love our Bancroft B8 silver bracelet paired with our M4 Bancroft bracelet in 9ct gold. Photo credit: Jane Looker
Thin men’s bracelets Sometimes less is more and all an outfit needs is a pared-back, subtle detail. A thin men’s bracelet is ideal for curating a considered and minimalist design aesthetic while injecting some sophistication into a look. If you’re looking to keep things simple then we recommend our P2 Bancroft silver bracelet or M2 Bancroft 18ct gold bracelet. Photo credit: Jane Looker
Wide metal men’s bracelets
Traditionally worn with suits and smarter ensembles, the wide metal men’s bracelet is the perfect accessory for creating a masculine yet polished look. This single, solid and bold statement will see you through from daytime in the office to afterwork drinks. A wide bracelet also offers the ideal platform to experiment with one of our unique finishes, including our matte and blasted finishes, as the extra width allows the textures to make an impact. We recommend the M8 or B8 Bancroft silver bracelets when it comes to letting the piece speak for itself. Photo credit: Jane Looker
Men’s bracelets for gifting
Searching for a unique gift that your loved one can wear and enjoy for years to come? A bracelet is just the thing! Whatever their taste and style, there is a men’s bracelet to make the ideal gift for him. No matter if you are searching for your dad, brother, partner or friend, our collection of men’s accessories has got you covered. If he’s more of a sporty type, then a copper bracelet works beautifully dressed up or dressed down. Perhaps he works in an office and is more of the corporate type? Check the metal of his favourite watch and choose a bracelet to match. Maybe you are shopping for a summer birthday or are looking for the finishing touch for a special occasion? The warmth of a gold bracelet is ideal for the summer months and a rose gold bracelet offers a precise point of interest when worn at an event or party.
Men’s bracelets for engraving
Want a bracelet that you can personalise for yourself? Maybe you are looking for the perfect gift for that special someone? Men’s bracelets that can be engraved are wonderful for adding that unique, individual touch to your accessories. With flat surfaces for engraving, we recommend our M8 Bancroft silver bracelet, P6 Bancroft silver bracelet and our P8 Bancroft silver bracelet.
Men’s bracelets for weddings
As well as traditional wedding accessories like a pair of cufflinks or a lapel pin, men’s bracelets offer a sophisticated detail whether you are getting married, a groomsman or a well-dressed guest. Whatever the season or theme of the wedding, a pared back cuff bracelet is a great way to express your personality while still looking appropriate for such a special occasion. We recommend our P2 Bancroft bracelet in either 18ct or 9ct gold for the big day.
In the Alice Made This studio we believe in a simple and timeless aesthetic that isn’t limited by gender. Our pieces look as great on men as they do on women, with many of our designs available in both larger and smaller sizes to suit the wearer. Worn individually or stacked together, our bracelets allow you to experiment with graphic profiles, architectural silhouettes and geometric textures. If you’re looking for a unisex bracelet to complement your personal style, we recommend our Lapworth silver bracelet, Oscar copper bracelet and Anning silver bracelet. Photo credit: Jane Looker
