In recent years, it has become trendy to wear bracelets alongside your watch. Whether they are comprised of beads, made of leather or metal, they can instantly add a touch of style to your wrist watch look.
For those who have tried and enjoyed wearing bracelets alongside your watches, we would like to introduce you to something new and unique – EPHORI (pronounced Eh-four-rye) LONDON, a luxury men’s fashion brand that creates bespoke beaded bracelets for men.
Our beaded bracelets are personalised for you according to your tastes with your name initials. These bespoke bracelets are comprised of semi-precious natural stone beads and personalised bracelet plates, which are 3d printed with your name initials. By combining traditional hand-making and the latest cutting edge 3d printing technology, our beaded bracelets are made just for you.
We are keen on personalisation because we want you to feel a connection to the bracelet. We want the bracelets to have meaning to you. Using name initials makes an identity statement without giving too much away.
We spent the better half of 2016 designing and developing our products with watch enthusiasts just like yourself. With their feedback on what works and what looks good, we designed our new collection with over 25 different beaded bracelet colours.
This collection is called the Canterbury series as these beaded bracelets were inspired from the Canterbury Cathedral in Kent, UK.
We selected a range of high quality metals for you to choose from when personalising your initials bracelet plate. Currently, we offer the metals below and are looking to add more options to this list. The pricing of the bracelet varies depending on the metal you select.
The high price point is partly due to the use of 3d printed components and our focus on quality. These bracelets have a global make with manufacturing occurring across three continents. These bracelets are made in the UK, USA and China. Having worked with a number of manufacturers over the past 6 months, we have selected the best to work with, our top most priority being quality. We have continued making improvements over several months to ensure that all components of the bracelet are strong and long-lasting. Our bracelets are sold exclusively on our website and are inclusive of taxes and free worldwide shipping with tracking.
We have carefully chosen these metals as our vision is to create bracelets that are classy and match perfectly when worn with your watch.
We spent a considerable amount of time working on the fitting of these beaded bracelets to ensure they fit most wrist sizes. It was crucial that they sit just right on your wrist – next to your watch.
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.
One of the concerns that you may have is that the bracelets may scratch your watch.
Not to worry, our bracelets are comprised of smooth rounded natural stone beads and flat bracelet plates without sharp edges. This reduces the risk of scratches.
Secondly, our bracelets come in a rope style that can be secured tightly around the wrist, slightly away from the watch, to prevent any risk of scratches.
Ofcourse, if you are not comfortable wearing the bracelet next to your wrist watch, then you can wear it on the other wrist.
These bracelets were designed in colours that would complement your watch. For the watch collectors, there are over 25 natural stone combination bracelets for you to choose from – to match every colour of your watch, and a few more just incase.
For those who care, on a more spiritual note, the natural stone beads used in making these bracelets have been associated with positive attributes such as strength, confidence, inner peace, among others. We feel that we live in such a fast paced world that we no longer appreciate life, ourselves and others. No one wants to admit it but it’s time to start taking action. Through Ephori London, we want to promote a strong brand vision of positivity, self-development and giving back. This is why we chose natural stones. As natural stones have been associated with positive energies, we felt that these will be a reminder to the wearer to focus on self-development, living in the now and helping others.
We don’t want to focus on the mythological lore associated with the natural stones and whether it is true or not. We want to focus on the meaning behind why they were worn in the first place – to achieve something good.
We also have a strong commitment to helping others. As well as creating bespoke jewellery for men that is fashion tech savvy, our 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. Infact, we made our first contribution last year where we fed a meal to 50 orphans in Uganda – within two months of launching our first products. This was a major milestone for us because we realised that it is infact possible to make a real difference in the world.
We will be making another contribution soon so stay tuned!
As long as these custom beaded bracelets are styled right, they would look great on your wrist alongside your watch. We have received a lot of interest from watch collectors and fashion influencers. Our bracelet was also recently featured on a VIP stylist where it made its way to Milan Fashion Week.
