Can medical alert jewelry be fashionable?
I remember once telling someone that I have anaphylaxis and that when I had an attack, I would faint from low-blood pressure. The person was aghast and asked if I wore a medical alert bracelet in case of emergencies. She highly recommended it and said that it would do the talking when I couldn’t.
At the time, I didn’t like the idea of wearing any medical alert jewelry. I felt uncomfortable at the idea of labeling myself an anaphylactic and proclaiming to the whole world that I had this condition! Until I went online and checked out the options available. I was surprised at the range of styles and uses of medical alert jewelry available on the market! These weren’t ugly tags that labelled me as a sick person, as I had mistakenly believed. These were fashionable jewelry pieces, the kind I would normally wear.
You might be like that too, unwilling to join the ranks of medical alert jewelry wearers. But in this blog post, I’m going to outline how getting yourself a fashionable medical ID might be your best jewelry choice yet!
Medical alert jewelry can be fashionable
Gone are the days when wearing medical alert jewelry was something you had to grudgingly do, when they used to be boring and unimaginative. If you like classy pieces of jewelry (and who doesn’t!) then your medical ID can definitely fall into this category. You can choose pieces to suit all aspects of your life – active, formal and dressy events and casual everyday wear.

Choose from a variety of styles and uses
We don’t all see eye-to-eye on fashion and jewelry. It makes sense then that there should be a variety of options available for our medical alert jewelry as well. There are many styles available online making it easy for you to choose exactly what you’re after. You can choose from quiet, classic pieces to louder, more statement pieces depending on your personality and style. If you don’t like bracelets, you can choose from anklets (ankle bracelets) and pendants.

Make a collection with interchangeable ID bracelets
Many online vendors give you the opportunity of purchasing a medical ID tag which, like a charm, can be removed and attached to medical alert bracelets. This means that you don’t have to buy a number of custom engraved bracelets. Instead, you can have a collection of bracelets that can fit your ID tag. The bracelets usually come with a lobster clasp so you can easily remove or add the tag. This will save you money and give you more style options.

Choose from a range of materials
You can find medical alert jewelry in a variety of materials and metals. Silicone, leather, paracord and nylon are some common materials. More durable than these would be metal options, such as sterling silver, white, yellow or rose gold, platinum and nickel. Again, it depends on your lifestyle and style.

Different designs for everyone
Like I mentioned above, a one-style fits all doesn’t work when it comes to fashion. This is why most medical alert jewelry providers take into account the stylistic needs of women, men, children and teenagers as well.

One final thing. Make sure that your medical jewelry is comfortable. After all, you will be wearing it on a daily basis. Have fun shopping for your new piece of jewelry, probably the most useful piece of jewelry you will ever own!
