Cuffs, Torques And Men's Bangles

Feb 25, 2008
Cuff Torques and Bangles are a popular form of men's jewelry. These items are not just masculine in form but these items carry an interesting history. They can be made out of precious metals or organic matter like wood or animal leather. Some bangles are even magnetized in order to have the so-called 'health benefits' offered by magnetism. Whether or not you buy bangles and cuffs for fashion or function, they are still a great accessory that you can wear almost anywhere. This is also something that you can give to a very intimate friend.

A Brief History Lesson

Mini Torques that you can wear on your wrist as cuff did not start out that way. They used to be elaborate and defined pieces of jewelry that was worn on the necks of proud warriors, leaders and priests of the Celtic people. They were considered to have powers that helped protect the wearer form coming into any form of harm. Gold was the metal of choice, but since it was rare, this metal was only used to make items intended for the high priests and clan leaders.

The Cuff also has its own history too. Pharaohs, Emperors, and Kings would be seen sporting these items while they sat on their gilded thrones and looked over their people. They didn't used to be in the subtle shapes that they are now. Cuffs used to be very lengthy and wide and were very flashy, but like the Celtic neck torques, they too have found themselves smaller in size today, but they can still be made to carry the same meanings that they did in the past.

Taking Bangles to New Heights

Bangles are definitely acceptable for men's jewelry. Men's bangles are now made of all kind of metals and even wood. You can find beautiful ones crafted out of copper, iron and high pricier ones are made of platinum and gold. No matter what the raw material is, a secure man can definitely wear a masculine bangle. For those that are new to the trend, you could start off with a copper bangle that has a nice tribal design. This will perhaps show that you have an affinity for ethnicity and help ease you in into the jewelry wearing crowd. You may even try wearing bangles that have little magnets attached to them, or the entire piece maybe magnetized, after all, they do say that it has effects beneficial to your health - there's no harm in trying, plus, you look good while improving your health at the same time.

A Sense for Leather

Leather is being used by the dark clad bikers as jackets and pants. But leather soon found its way to their accessories as well. Soon, they were seen wearing wide cuffs that are made of black leather with silver studs on them. This style sense was a bit off for most men, but soon, the fashion capitals took notice and brought the trend to a whole new direction. We can see the fashionable younger set wearing leather cuffs as part of their regular outfit.
