Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

The only jewellery permitted for men in the Hanafi school is a silver ring. [al-Bada’i`, al-Hindiyya, al-Durr]

Similarly, all other jewelry (siver chain, bracelets, necklaces etc,) is impermissible for men, as it is considered imitating women.

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Allah curses men who emulate women and women who emulate men.” [Sahîh al-Bukhari (5885)]

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
