There are thousands of people who have medical conditions for which they need to alert others about by wearing some sort of identification tag. A doctor may recommend that patients with conditions such as diabetes or those who have allergies wear a medic alert bracelet or necklace.
Until recently, women have worn metal medical identification tags that might be described as unattractive or even boring. They serve their function, but you wouldn't call them stylish. Even as recently as a few years ago, the bulk of the medic alert jewelry on the market worn by patients was bulky and utterly unattractive.
However, there actually have been some quite unique developments when it comes to the styling and composition of medical alert jewelry. In other words, medical alert jewelry no longer is something that a person tries to hide or be embarrassed about. Some jewelry designers have become aware of the fact that some people still want to look their best even though they have a medical condition.
The newest offerings are the charm bracelet, and the charm necklace. Also being offered is a medical ID tag that looks like a charm and can be added to any existing jewelry from a diamond tennis bracelet to one made of silver or gold. Its ability to be attractive, attach to any kind of fine jewelry, and send an important medical emergency message has made it successful. It's nice looking and it doesn't shout, "I'm sick! I have a serious medical condition. In a medical emergency, these IDs allow medics or other medical professionals to give prompt, precise treatment.
Universal acceptance makes wearing a medic alert ID an excellent form of preventive medicine. It also gives individuals with medical condition more security and peace of mind that someone will be alerted of their condition in case of an emergency. High-grade metals are used for engraving surfaces, including solid stainless steel, sterling silver, 10-karat gold-filled, and 10-karat and 14-karat gold.
Now, we should discuss the jewelry designer and the challenges that designing medic jewelry may present to those dabbling into this new market. For one thing jewelry designers have to find a way to cater to this new market without the appearance of wanting to "cash in" on peoples illnesses. Second they have to keep in mind the purpose for wearing of medic jewelry and not let the fashion or style override its purpose. This can be a bit of a balancing act for designers who decide to take on this new fashion venture.
