Finding A Medical ID That Looks As Good As You Feel

Posted on June 25 2016

A medical ID is one of the most important pieces of jewelry you can own. It is designed to speak when you cannot. Since it is a piece of jewelry you will wear every day, there are some features you need to consider when purchasing one.  We know what it is like to live with the threat of a serious medical condition - in fact, Rachel our founder lives with T1D every day and wears a medical alert bracelet 24/7. 

Here are some tips to consider when choosing a Medical ID:

Where will you wear it? Do you prefer necklaces or bracelets? An ID necklace may be a little more discreet and a bracelet will be easier for medical professionals to see.

How durable is it? For a particularly active lifestyle, consider a stainless steel style.

Do you have any metal allergies? Bracelets with fabric behind the metal ID, is so that the metal does not touch your skin.

How much information do you have to engrave? Consider some of our styles that accommodate your needs. 

Make sure you love it. If you are going to wear an ID daily, you need to choose a style and color that you are comfortable with and you really like.  We have a variety of styles and colors for you to choose from.

The Importance of Medical IDs:

Your medical ID provides for a quick recognition of your medical conditions, allergies, medications or treatments. This leads to faster and more effective medical treatment.
