Thanks to some of the most prominent young male celebrities on the scene today, men’s jewellery is once again in the spotlight. Everyone from Harry Styles and Timothée Chalamet, to Shawn Mendes, Maluma, and A$AP Rocky is showing off new and inventive ways of sporting chokers, rings, and bracelets. It’s hard not to jump on the bandwagon.
And while rocking a classic timepiece isn’t going anywhere, more and more men are opting to complement and even accentuate their beloved watch with a statement bracelet.
Here are some of our top picks for the trendiest statement makers when it comes to men’s bracelets.

Inspired by the “ouroboros” – an ancient symbol depicting a serpent eating its own tail – the Full Circle bracelet from William Henry is not an understatement.
