I know some of you do not like wearing medical ID, but what is your favorite ID jewelry? I have found plenty of girly styles. How about you guys on the forums?
Here are mine

This one is just like the Tiffany Heart Toggle Bracelet!!!!

I got a nice one after a very long search at www.medicassist.com It's not horribly pretty, but I like it. There are also some nice ones at www.n-styleid.com
personally, i only like the ones i make myself, usually i use some form of a watch sports band, just stitch the medical id tag right onto it. they seem to hold up better than any you can buy, and way cheaper too.

I have had medi-alert stuff before but I never wore them. I has an SOS necklace but lost the top, and then I had a medic-alert sports band but it was itchy and looked horrible.
I never thought about looking into different companies before, but that heart braclet is really nice. I guess I'm lucky I havent needed my tag but I guess I should get one.

My son HATES wearing his medic-alert bracelet since it is so 'hospital' like. I finally designed a shirt for him on cafepress that has to do with him playing tennis. Loves it! I also plan on designing a doggie t-shirt for our new doggie so that when my son takes the dog for a walk, the doggie shirt can alert others in a nice way about my son. People love to stop and pet the doggie and it is a nice way to break the ice! :)

I might be a bit more pricey than what you want... but what I did was to find a few pieces that I actually liked and had then engraved with the medic-alert symbol, my name, and "diabetic". That makes it easy for me to change the look, and its more personal. ^.^

Hey, Here's my favorite http://www.diabeticwristband.com/, I don't own one myself yet, but - i really want it. In my experience all my identification braclets have gotten broken, and/or been way too big for my wrists. I really like these b/c 1) they won't just break on you and 2) they come in a couple different sizes and 3) they're a bit trendy as well. So, they work well - especially for active people.:D

Saw that one MunchinGirl and my son already does wear the rubber bracelets for other causes (Live Strong, etc.) so I don't think that in a crisis of a low BG, the medical emergency team would pick up on the fact that this Diabetic band means he's a Diabetic... maybe he just donated a dollar to JD to get the bracelet. :confused: Anyway, so many kids wear these bracelets that it would be hard to spot the ones specific for medical alert to that person. As a mom, I wouldn't really trust that it would help in an emergency. Make sense?

Oh yeah, I totally understand what You are saying. You make a very good point. I think that my difference in opinion would be that I carry all my supplies with me and I wear an insulin pump - so, if I was by chance passed out or just plain out of it - chances are that if someone did look at it - they may actually decide to look and find out. Also, the more appropriate one to buy would be red, as the red ones typically are a little more of a red-flag to a medical condition.
I think, though, in your son's case, you are quite right. I don't wear those things as it is, so, I don't see a problem with it in and of myself.
Good point, though!
