Band of Brothers

Jewelry designer Catherine M. Zadeh

"For men," says designer Catherine M. Zadeh, "jewelry is about understated touches." And her bracelets strike the right balance between making a statement and saying it softly: The cuffs are plain and chic; the details suggest manly pursuits—say, alligator skin inset with a sterling-silver fishbone ($500) and braided buffalo horn with an 18-karat-gold clasp ($1,595).
