Bracelet brands are a dime a dozen. Go on Etsy, eBay or Amazon and you’ll find hundreds to choose from.
While there are endless options when it comes to the bracelets you can buy, there aren’t many like Azuro Republic. Here’s why.
This editorial is in partnership with Azuro Republic.
AZURO REPUBLIC CORE VALUES
I spoke at length with the Azuro Republic team and it’s apparent that they’re more than just a bracelet brand. Their company is run on 3 core values.
The first being quality. Second being creativity. And third, a completely customized experience.
Azuro Republic’s hand-selected beaded bracelets feature exquisite gems tones ranging from obsidian to white jade, and hematite to tiger’s eye. Each bracelet is finished off with a colored bead etched in a clean Azuro Republic typeface. It’s a truly elegant piece comprised of valuable minerals found all across the world.
Creativity is found in the details, and Azuro Republic has perfected with precision all of their bracelets. Each one is hand-picked, carefully chiseled, and crafted into an elegant, masculine accessory.
They have collections accented with gold and silver, featuring ancient gemstones with unique meanings.
CUSTOM-MADE BRACELETS FOR A GENTLEMAN
All stylish men know that the fit of their clothing is the most important aspect of dressing well. When it comes to wearing accessories, the fit is just as essential.
I’ve owned many bracelets that are loosely fitted around my wrist that appear sloppy and unintentional. I’ve also worn bracelets that are too big for my wrist and it’s not the most flattering look.
The fact that Azuro Republic creates a custom-sized bracelet is a big advantage over most other companies that only offer a single, one-sized fits all. Which as we all know , there’s never one-size fits all when it comes to different sized body types or wrist sizes.
Not only do they craft custom-sized bracelets, they also have a mixed collection where you can choose from a combination of beads. Can’t find a mixed bracelet you like? You can select the gemstones to mix and match yourself for a custom beaded bracelet designed just for you.
It truly is a collaborative process and the small, yet nimble Azuro Republic team will work with you to create something unique. If you have something in mind, they’re more than glad to help.
A CAREFULLY CRAFTED COLLECTION
The Azuro Republic beaded bracelet craftsmanship is second to none. They treat it like an art form. Check out the video below demonstrating the meticulous care that goes into making each bracelet.
Gold Enamel Turquoise Obsidian Bracelet
I opted for the Gold Enamel Turquoise Obsidian bracelet. Enamel is made by fusing glass and just the right temperature which results in a unique piece of jewelry.
Obsidian is a dark gemstone found in lava. The black obsidian gemstones take hundreds of years to form and represent guardianship and braveness.
The obsidian gemstones sit next to three 24k gold plated beads that really takes it to another level. The small details are impressive. I personally love the elegance of the pitch black obsidian contrasting against the polished gold beads.
HOW TO STYLE A BEADED BRACELET
Looking for inspiration on how to wear a beaded bracelet? Here’s how I styled mine.
While you can definitely wear a beaded bracelet with a complete suit ensemble, I decided to pair Azuro Repbulic’s gold enamel obsidian bracelet with a blazer, odd trousers combination. It’s a dressy look, though slightly dialed down in formality due to the mix and matching of jacket and pants. I’d call it sharp casual.
I omitted the tie to keep things relaxed while throwing in a silk pocket square. It’s a casually refined look that I felt pairs well with the bracelet which is also great with everything from dressy outfits to more casual fit as well.
I wouldn’t wear it with anything athletic, however it can pair nicely with more simple looks like with chinos and a polo shirt or even a crisp t-shirt and slim fit, dark blue jeans.
All in all, I feel the bracelet can add that finishing touch of elegance to your look.
Azuro Republic bracelets combine tradition with fashion. And what drew me to them is not only the refined style and designs they offer, but also their story of redefining a true gentleman. It certainly resonates with Gentleman Within’s story of unleashing The Gent Within, and that style is a journey — an inside-out process.
In the end, their bracelets look and feel premium. I think they would make for a great gift for that special someone who perhaps achieved a milestone in their life and deserves something beautiful as it is meaningful.
