3 Tips For Choosing the Right Medical Alert For Your Lifestyle


Once diagnosed with a medical condition such as diabetes, food allergies and heart disease or if you've had gastric bypass surgery, wearing a life saving medical alert becomes a necessity. Perhaps you've done some research on the internet and seen a vast array of styles, prices and quality. Are you overwhelmed and finding it hard to pinpoint exactly which type of medical alert will be conducive to your lifestyle? Are you wanting to find a medical alert that is durable, long lasting and looks good at the same time?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions you're in for an informational treat. Let's dive in to the different types of medical alert bracelets and necklaces, shall we?

1.  Would you consider yourself to be classic, refined or elegant? If your wardrobe is built upon classic pieces that never go out of style, the following medical alert pieces will transition smoothly into your daily wardrobe. These bracelets will further accentuate your refined taste, combining safety with style.

elegant medical alert bracelets

  • Our Pearl and Crystal medical alert bracelet is the epitome of class. Pearls stand for beauty, honesty and wisdom, so naturally when wearing this bracelet you'll feel like a queen. With accents of sterling silver and Swarovski crystals this style will accentuate your polished wardrobe. 
  • It's all in the name. Our Golden Heirloom medical alert bracelet is 5 strands of liquid gold. The light will radiate off this stunning design and leave you feeling confident and secure. Pair this with your favorite cocktail ring and you're ready to walk the red carpet!
  • Are you looking for something simple, elegant and timeless? This is our Silver Artisan medical alert bracelet and features sterling silver links polished to a high shine and in classic fashion will attach to the medical ID tag of your choice to offer you complete protection. 

2.  Do you live in your comfortable jeans and a tee? If comfort and reliability is what makes you feel good, the following styles are sure to deliver. These medical ID bracelets were made for those who need something that looks nice, feels good and always pulls through both day and night.

simple everyday medical alert bracelets

  • Our sterling silver chain medical alert bracelet has stood the test of time. It's polished silver and hammered links combine forces to create a solid go-to piece that looks great both day and night.
  • This simple handcrafted inspirational cross bracelet lets you quietly keep the faith. The centerpiece is a simple cross and is beautifully accented by double strands of brown seed beads. Think about it. What wouldn't this style look nice with?
  • Our stainless steel tribal alert cuff was made for you. When comfort and reliable are how you'd describe your style, this piece offers both. The bold tribal pattern pops off the polished stainless steel. You won't have to worry about breaking this cuff. It can stand up to your daily tests.

3.  Are you are extremely active and enjoy activities such as swimming, running, working out at the gym or spending time at the park? This type of active lifestyle means that your medical alert bracelet or necklace needs to keep up with you, not drag you down! Here are several styles that are durable, long lasting and can keep you safe while living your life.

sturdy medical alert jewelry

  • Stainless steel medical alert bracelets are virtually indestructible. They feature a red medical caduceus symbol on the front which alerts first responders to your engraved medical information on the back. This style is great for someone constantly on the go.
  • A waterproof adjustable medical alert band is sturdy, waterproof and made of nylon. These bands are comfortable to wear and are perfect for any outdoor enthusiast. If you love to run, swim or have a fun loving child who grows like a weed, this style is your best option.
  • A medical ID dog tag is both trendy and eye catching. Choose a bright color that features a medical caduceus symbol on the front and enjoy up to 5 lines of engraved information on the back. If you don't like wearing bracelets, this is a perfect option for you.

If you are considering purchasing a medical alert bracelet or necklace I hope you find this list of tips useful.

new medical alert product idea


Hello to all. Actually, this opens 
up a world to explore ~ as I am 
Linda (me) first of all, depending 
on the mood I'm in. Secondly, I 
am Linda (the wife) of a loving 
man who sees me when my makeup is 
on and I look half-way presentable. 
Thirdly, I am Linda (mom) to two 
wonderful ladies and I dorn a 
"motherly" air about me. Fourthly, 
I am Grandma, G~Mama, Granny to 
5 beautiful grandchildren who are 
adults in their own rights and I 
maintain a grandmother's wisdom 
and knowledge (hopefully) but without the total white hair, in 
a rocking chair knitting. And 
most of all, I am Linda the great 
grandmother, the "grande dame" of 
motherhood with advise (only when 
asked) and indeed have one in the 
home with me. 
So, in essence, I am 5 people in 
my own life. I have to be true to 
myself before I can be true to 
any one else. I can dress in  
formal wear with style or can be 
in bed sick and look like a 
halloween pumpkin.  
With all of your styles, they make 
it possible to match all of me to 
who I am at any given time. 
And that is why I love the bracelets, necklaces, watches and 
everything you have so far. 
My intention is to purchase one 
each month to get all of my lives 
together and not worry about if I'm 
put together or not. After all, 
they are for the purpose of saving 
lives in the event...and as a  
retired nurse, I'm all for that.

I am very active, but have some severe health issues, there are times when its inconvenient to wear a medic alert..so I have purchased a couple extra tags and have them permanantly attached to my bike and backpack...gives me a little security and provides the needed information...

I was interested in jewelry item one. My greatest worry is that while I'm unconscious someone will take my blood pressure on the arm I had lump nodes removed from and then my arm will swell.

Jane, Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I love your idea of adding backpack tags to your bike and packpack. It's better to be safe than sorry and that's a great alternative.

My favorite Medical ID Bracelet that I own is Planet Pink, and my favorite Medical ID Necklace is the Multi Colored Flower Pendant.

Good morning to all...I noticed that Wanda had a concern that most 
people do not think about. And, 
like my cousin and father-in-law, 
they cannot have their blood 
pressure taken because they've had 
the procedure done in their arm 
in the event they have to do on 
And I'm wondering how long those 
tatoos stay once you put them on... 
and could a tatoo be made to simply 
say,"No B/P in this arm"? 
Or, just wear a ID bracelet on that 
arm. I'm positive that any medical 
professional would look for an ID 
of any kind before they would proceed to take a B/P. When I worked in the hospital, we had 
notices posted at the door and above the bed. At the jail where 
I also worked (such an interesting 
job), we knew of these persons so 
we could take the necessary precaution. Let me think, and I 
might come up with something. And 
I do like the ones that you can put 
on duffle bags, etc. Or a plain 
bracelet with a tag to be worn on 
that arm. 
Hope this helps.
