Male jewelry isn't a big consideration for most dudes, because life is perfectly fine without any—unless you happen to be a rapper or something. Before you delve into grills, chains, rings, and earrings though, we suggest starting with the simplest piece out there: the bracelet.

You could wear a solid metal bangle on your wrist, but we prefer the comfier chain-link bracelet. Get it in silver or the classic “Saudi gold.” Attention to detail is key, make sure to test fit it on your wrist to make sure you've got the right size—both diameter and thickness of the piece. The chain will also be the dressiest bracelet in your budding jewelry box, so dress appropriately—no to denim and tees (because hello DOM vibes), yes to shirts and slacks.

Cord

For daily use, the cord bracelet is what you need. Being made from textile material, they come in a wide range of colors and prints to suit whatever OOTD you're trying to pull off. You can get something like a Rastaclat, with a very casual vibe:

Or a dressier one like a Miansai, which comes with some matching hardware to upscale things:

Remember anklets? Well, that's how you should think about these bracelets (aka not too hard) because if you're looking for the ultimate starter bracelet, then it would be made of cord.

Is it okay to wear them with a watch?

If you've got a timepiece that matches your bracelet, feel free to stack those bad boys together. Otherwise, you can get maximum mileage by wearing your goods on opposite wrists. Compare these two combos for example—we know which pairing we'd split up:

Feel free fam, we recommend having an equally layered and detailed outfit if you decide to go down this route though. You don't want your jewelry to become the focal point of your entire rig.
