Trends in Medical Alert ID Jewelry

Many people have health issues or life threatening allergies and are required to wear medical alert ID's on a continual basis.  But as we are finding, medical alert jewelry doesn't have to be stuffy and boring any more.  There are so many different styles that are fashionable and even trendy right now.  Take a look at what is new on the jewelry scene for these types of ID jewelry.

Dog Tag Style Necklaces:
We have been seeing these on teens and adults. These are a great style because they can be worn with other necklaces to mix and match. These are available in gold or silver metals and are a nice option because you can have the front and/or back engraved with your medical information. In addition, this style is universal and would be appropriate for males and females.

Leather Watch Band Medical ID Bracelets:
If you are a fan of wearing watches this style would be for you because the medical alert ID tag is attached to the center of a leather watch band and has an adjustable clasp. This style is unique and versatile because it can be integrated with other bracelets and become a lovely fashion statement.

All Metal ID Chain Bracelets:
This style looks much like a metal chain bracelet, the only difference is the medical alert plate that is attached in the center. Often times you can get the front and backsides of the plate engraved with your medical information and this style is appropriate for both guys and gals.  Chain bracelets are beautiful when stacked with other bracelets too.  You can do a lot with the different metals of chain as well.  They just go with everything.

Bangle and Cuff ID Bracelets:
Obviously this style of medical ID bracelet is geared towards women who have a taste for trendy and chic style jewelry.  If you are worried about losing your bracelet then a bangle or the cuff style is a perfect option. You will find this style of bracelet in all metal, combination metal/leather or metal with enamel. They come in multiple colors and look just like regular jewelry.  These are great to mix with other bangles and cuffs too.

All of these options allow the user to still have great style and not have to call out to the world that they have medical issues or life threatening allergies to medications. Stylish choices abound so don't limit yourself to just one style! Take care of them and keep them stored in lined jewelry boxes when they are not in use and you will have your lovely pieces for many years.
