While true biker style is more about individuality than it is about adopting uniform, some aspects of the style adopted by many bikers do have a common theme, and one those is the use of heavy chains as items of jewelry.
Whether it’s worn as a biker bracelet or a biker necklace, a heavy chain does somehow seem to epitomize the biker lifestyle. It’s tough, it’s heavy, it can be dangerous, and of course, it is reminiscent both of a motorcycle drive chain and of the big, heavy chains that some bikers use to secure their bikes when they leave them unattended.
Using a heavy chain as an item of jewelry has become almost as much a part of the biker image as skulls and wings have and, even though there are many different types of bikers, things like chain bracelets, skull rings and winged emblems have become staples of the biker style, each and every biker can have their own take on biker fashion.
A lot of biker fashion items began as “do-it-yourself” accessories, such as using a motorcycle drive chain as a belt, or the trend with early bikers to wear military helmets rather than conventional crash helmets. Today, instead of doing it yourself, you can get some very high quality biker jewelry that is based on some of those early biker fashion trends.
Classic Examples of Biker Bracelets
Modern biker bracelets come in a huge range of different styles, but one of the most popular types is still the heavy chain style of bracelet such as Figaro chain bracelets and Cuban bracelets.

The quality of this Figaro chain bracelet is exceptional. It’s not just silver plated; it’s made out of solid first class sterling silver, so it’s heavy, durable and it looks absolutely amazing.

Our example Cuban bracelet above is a solid sterling silver Cuban bracelet that weighs 140 grams and has links that are 20mm wide and 7mm thick, so this one is quite a heavy biker bracelet.
