Men’s Summer Collection Preview – Introducing the Buccaneer Bracelet

Bracelet for Men made from Entwined Leather Strips and Copper Endings.

With the fair season nearly upon us, and the fifth opus of the Pirates of the Caribbean opening, what better time indeed to talk summer jewelry for men! Jack Sparrow is definitely not one to shy away from a little bit of added color and personality, and neither should you, really! The first piece we’d like to introduce is aptly named the Buccaneer, after those early landless and lawless adventurers of yore who spent their time between Hispanolia and the Island of Tortuga, and were in a sense the precursors of the swashbuckling pirates we’ve all come to know and love. The word “Buccaneer” actually comes from the French word “boucane”, or smoke, and refers to a favorite activity of these fine gentlemen: smoking meat over large fires on the beach. They essentially were the inventors of beef jerky.

Description

True to its name, the Buccaneer Bracelet is made of a variety of leather strips, some distressed, some smooth, all of them of earthy colors, giving the ensemble a rugged, masculine look. Copper endings complete the marine theme of this jewelry, and a clever magnet clasp permits one to quickly put in on, such as during the night boarding of an English Brig or before a grog-fueled night of revelry. This bracelet will compliment perfectly a leather strapped watch, but can also easily by worn on its own. Its simplicity should appeal to the guys out there who aren’t (yet) used to wearing bracelets, but lends itself perfectly well to some mixing and matching with other pieces. In particular, the Business Man bracelet would make a nice companion to our Buccaneer.

Did you know that…

Although preempting the French Revolution and its famous ideals of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity by some 100 years, the Buccaneers were actually strong proponents of these selfsame values. For instance, the captain was elected by popular vote, and could also be deposed by the crew, again through voting process. Spoils were divided in shares, and there was even a health insurance of sorts, with extra money awarded to those wounded in battle. A fixed amount for a lost eye, maybe more for a lost leg, you get the idea! So join these freedom-loving, carefree adventurers of a bygone age by proudly wearing your Buccaneer Bracelet (coming soon to our online store).
