Now that you’ve got your men’s beaded bracelet and will be styling it to match your wardrobe, you might be wondering, “What wrist do guys wear bracelets on?”
The wrist you wear your men’s beaded bracelet on is a matter of personal preference, there are no hard or fast rules.
We will answer the question which wrist guys wear their men’s beaded bracelets on based on practicality and some concerns you may have.
1) Do you want to style your beaded bracelet alongside your wrist watch?
If you want to style your men’s beaded bracelet alongside your watch, then the obvious answer to this question is wear your bracelet on the wrist on which you wear you watch. If you wear a watch on a daily basis, then you will know which wrist you want to wear your watch on, and this is the same wrist you’ll wear your beaded bracelet on.
If you already wear a watch and don’t want to make your wrist look too busy, then you should wear your beaded bracelet on the opposite wrist. Also, if you are wearing a watch with a pretty big dial face, then it might be a good idea to wear your men’s beaded bracelet on the opposite wrist.
3) Luxury watch
Depending on the type of watch you are wearing, you might be concerned about scratches on your watch. If you are wearing beaded bracelets with rounded beads, these are unlikely to cause much damage to your watch. However, if you would much rather not take the risk, then the obvious choice is to wear the beaded bracelet on your opposite wrist.
Alternatively, if you would like to style your men’s beaded bracelet alongside your watch, you might want to buy a simple leather/PU bracelet which you can place between your watch and beaded bracelet.
If you are keen on showing off your men’s beaded bracelet, then you should place it on your wrist without a watch. Sometimes styling your beaded bracelet alongside a watch can downplay the bracelet but also it may not be entirely visible especially if it is placed on the side of and underneath the watch crown.
5) Dominant hand
If you are right-handed, then you will most likely wear your watch on your left wrist. If you are left-handed, you’ll most likely wear your watch on your right wrist.
The way you wear your beaded bracelets will then depend on whether you want to wear your bracelets alongside your watch or not.
Therefore if you want to wear your men’s beaded bracelets alongside your wrist watch:
-If you are right-handed, wear your beaded bracelet alongside your watch on your left wrist.
– If you are left-handed, wear your beaded bracelet alongside your watch on your right wrist.
Alternatively, if you don’t want to wear your beaded bracelets alongside your wrist watch, then simply wear your bracelets on the opposite wrist.
6) Keep the beaded bracelets out of the way
This goes hand in hand with the dominant hand concern above. If you are working, you want to keep both your watch and beaded bracelets out of the way. If you are mostly using your dominant hand whilst working, then it’s best to wear the bracelets on the opposite wrist so that they don’t come in the way.
7) Being straight/gay
The wrist you wear your men’s beaded bracelets on has nothing to do with whether you are gay or straight. You can wear your beaded bracelets on either your left or right wrist and wear as many as you like as long as you style them right.
Beaded bracelets have come so very far in men’s fashion and have become a staple in men’s fashion. However, there will always be some men who believe that wearing bracelets is feminine. This is due to a long standing misconception that jewellery is for women and it makes you look feminine. We have done some research on this and have found that in fact men used to wear jewellery. Unfortunately, over time, society has associated jewellery with women – in our opinion due to reasons that aren’t entirely desirable.

If you are reading this blog post, then you have come across men wearing bracelets and want to know more. We believe fashion is now the equivalent of style. Style is a form of art – it is a way of expressing one’s personality through what they wear. It is individual. It is unique. And style will continually change as a person grows, learns, adapts, expresses and becomes self-aware. There are no more rules or bounds. Fashion is what you want it to be. Do not be restricted by society’s ideals and preconceptions.
As an example of how misleading and hypocritical society’s standards are: In the 1920’s, pink was considered a masculine colour. Blue was considered a feminine colour. It would be wrong for men to wear blue. Note how this has turned around completely. If a man is seen wearing pink now, then he is considered feminine and blue is a man’s colour. Hence, our point is stop conforming to society’s standards – wear what YOU want to wear.
What wrist do guys wear bracelets on?
We hope the above few points have given you a brief idea on which wrist to wear your men’s beaded bracelets. Really, there are no rules. Simply wear them on the wrist that you want to wear them on taking into account the fact that they won’t come in the way if you are working.
