When it comes to men’s jewellery, the first things that come to mind are watches and cufflinks. However, in recent years, this has significantly changed. The jewellery scene for men has exploded and more men than ever are wearing jewellery, particularly beaded bracelets. Celebrities, men’s fashion influencers and even the average Joe are adorning their wrists with men’s beaded bracelets.
The great thing about men’s beaded bracelets is that they are very versatile. They come in a range of colours and can easily be styled with the male fashion wardrobe. Men’s beaded bracelets are also great for bracelet stacks which are trending in the men’s fashion scene right now.
In speaking to the founder, Ruchi Haria
“I’m impressed by how far we have come in fashion. Fashion is no longer dictated by what we can and can’t wear. In my opinion, 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.”
Your Name On Your Wrist
Ephori (pronounced Eh-four-rye) London, a luxury men’s jewellery brand, is set on re-defining this men’s bracelet fashion scene by bringing a classier upgrade to you. They are enabling you to personalise your luxury bracelets with your name initials. Ephori London’s bespoke bracelets are comprised of semi-precious natural stone beads and personalised bracelet plates. These bracelet plates are designed with your name initials which creates a special connection to the bracelet.
Ephori London’s founder, Ruchi Haria, tells us that her vision is to create something you will be proud to wear forever – something that has meaning to you. Using name initials makes an identity statement without giving too much away. This ensures that even the more conservative fashion enthusiast can wear these custom bracelets with confidence.
Modern Bespoke Design
By combining traditional hand-making and the latest cutting edge 3d printing technology, Ephori London’s personalized men’s beaded bracelets are made just for you.
This personalisation does not just stop at your name initials. You can even choose the material for your bracelet plate, for example, you can choose from metals such as steel, 925 sterling silver and gold.
The price of these bracelets varies depending on the material you select for the custom initial bracelet plates. The vision is to create bracelets that are unique to you and look classy when worn with your watch. Ephori London has just launched it’s new collection. There are over 25 natural stone combinations for you to choose from, one to match with every colour of your watch, and a few more, just incase!
A considerable amount of time was spent working on the fitting of these beaded bracelets. It was crucial that they sit just right on your wrist.
The custom beaded bracelets are adjustable and can fit most wrist sizes from 15cm to 21cm. This covers the usual wrist sizes ranging from small to large. In case you are unsure of your wrist size, you can measure it using this guide: Measure your wrist size.
They can be secured onto the wrist by simply pulling the fastening strings on either end in an outward direction.
On a more spiritual note, the natural stone beads used in these beaded bracelets have been associated with positive attributes such as strength, confidence, inner peace, among others. Ephori London’s founder, Ruchi Haria, tells us that her inspiration for selecting natural stone beads was the fact that we live in such a fast paced world that sometimes we forget to really live in the moment. Using natural stones, which have been associated with positive elements such as mindfulness, will hopefully remind us to focus on living in the now and self-development.
She tells us that as well as creating bespoke jewellery for men that is fashion tech savvy, her vision is to use Ephori London as an avenue to help impoverished children in need. Hence, 10% of all sales are kept aside for charity. In 2016, within 2 months of launching their first products, they fed a meal to 50 orphans in Uganda. They will be making another contribution soon so stay tuned!

Leather And Vegan Bracelets Coming Soon
“In the next 2-3 weeks, I’ll be launching a new collection inspired from Greek origins. As you may have read from our “about us” section, Ephori refers to one of the members in an ancient council in Sparta (Greece) that governed the Kings. Hence, Ephori signifies power. For a while now, I’ve been meaning to design a men’s bracelets collection featuring some accents from historical Greece. It is now finally ready. I’ve combined it with the classic beaded look so that it still reflects the modern man look but with a powerful bold feel to it.
Secondly, I am also looking to introduce both leather and vegan leather bracelets for men this year. I’m still working on the look and feel of these but I have a vision to enable customisation of these by selecting from any number of gemstones including diamonds, sapphires, topaz etc. Personalisation is a big part of what Ephori London is about and going forward, I will be introducing many new products in which personalisation will play a big role.”
