If you were going to buy a bracelet for a home game poker series under $100, what would you get? Preferably something that can be personalized and isn't just a medic-alert bracelet. :D

I’ve looked for rings and bracelets, mostly found only cheap bling that you can’t customize easily. I’d like to start giving “official” rings for meetups, or at least consistent rings. Easy to transport to other meetups!

There are some companies making poker bracelets, rings, trophies, etc. They are all pretty cheap, and I dont know how customizable they are, but googling your query should find them.

If you find this - let me know. I've looked.

Also, for what it's worth my players seem to 'show off' the customized card protectors I do way more regularly than the bracelets. They seem to be more appreciated and brought to games to gloat with. So now I have a wall plaque for eternal recognition for 'big' items and then do the card protector coins from...

OK BAD NEWS POKERGUARD.COM IS OUT OF BUSINESS. :(

This is unfortunate, I still haven't found a similar place to make my ToC champion card capper.

If anyone has any leads, please share.

Forget the ring, give them a customized Championship Belt

Then you can play crazy hype music and do strobe lights when they walk in to your poker room.

I think there are places that will do custom silver coins. I've looked for bracelets and never found one I like. My wife has made beaded friendship style bracelets for winners of my turkey shootout.

I do 2 every year. They're certainly not WSOP bracelets, but Things Remembered is tough to beat. I tried a few options, but below is a link to the one I go with now. If you skip the extra box, I think you'll be in for $50ish.

Damn.. I just checked and it looks like the price is up. Used to be around $30 + engraving. But you'll still be under $100.

Also, experiment with the font. Some of them come out crappy. I think I use Futura to be the best.

Those aren’t bad looking. Are they stainless steel?

Having participated in a league and running my own for a season, I question the value and practicality of awarding jewelry to distinguished members. I think a plaque, a personalized poker chip or the players name on the wall would be more meaningful.

Partially agree in the sense that you can do both. But it's a matter of preference. I also give specialized engraved beer mugs to the "Alphas" i.e., winners. I contemplated plaques, trophies, etc., but decided that my peeps prefer bracelets and alcohol in glasses that call them by name. Below is my beer begging me to take a drink...LOL.

these are where the ones in my league come from too. they do the trick fine for something you're only going to wear once/year anyway.

I second the belt idea. Nameplates for these are cheap and easy, it gives your group something to pass on season after season, and the former titleholders nameplates can go on a plaque on the wall in your room

What is the cost per belt? I love the idea, but I gotta decide if I love my peeps enough to go that route. Gunny, Matt, Ben Brie, Charles, and Jason....DEFINITELY!! But some of them are pissing me off and will likely get a cheerios bracelet...LMAO!!
