This is what's trendy, men. Miansai's bracelets have been a constant on pages of several style magazines like GQ and, ladies, you can see Rihana sporting a cuff in her recent video.

They recently relaunched their website to be more functional and to give it an aesthetic that does better justice to the chic designs Saiger creates.

Miansai was featured on People.com as a Hollywood-inspired gift idea.

One among many cool factoids about Miansai is that most of the designs are handcrafted by someone on the floor.

Ladies, you shouldn't fret either because these designs are pretty popular for women also.
