    I've been thinking about getting a different diabetes alert bracelet for sometime now. I have one, but I HATE it, so therefore I don't wear it. :eek:
    I know, bad on me!
    So does anyone have any sites or anything where I can look through them and find one I like?
    Do they make alert necklaces? or not?
    I want something that looks like normal jewelery. Not something that is way different or anything :p
    thanks!

    I got mine from http://www.laurenshope.com. They have a lot of really pretty bracelets. So far thats my favorite ID site, but I know there are a ton of others.

    www.fifty50.com has some pretty cool stuff. I just have a plain walgreens one, but I generally take it off for church, and forget to put it back on :p. I try though.

    Even the medicalert company makes medicalert "pendants" which are necklaces, so an ambulance probably would look for those. My parents bought me some clothe ones for one of my birthdays.

    They do make necklaces. I don't really like bracelets, so I have a necklace.

    It's been so long that I forget where I bought mine. I actually had to buy another one because my last name was misspelled on the first one. Bunch of morons.:rolleyes:

    this is what i have, i make beaded bracelets to hook onto it and i love it!
    if you like Nick Jonas, there's always a dog tag with diabetes on the back. no one will guess about the D unless they see the back, you can just be another NJ crazy girl.......
    let me know if you like the switch out bracelet ideas, i can hook you uo with some clasps that work great!
    Emily's right 50/50 is great also, that's where i first one came from.

    I have those silicone bracelets and it has "Diabetes-Insulin Pump" on one side and my phone # on the other. I like to wear them to match my outfits!

    oh, i forgot one other thing-my four year old mentee has one 'diabetes' on it and a phone number and case number so if any one finds her they can call the number and get all her med info, which is great cause she's so little.
    just another option!

    I think they are pretty similar to those Livestrong bracelets, but I could be wrong.

    You're right. Here is the link to one on ebay. I went to one of those "design your own" websites and ordered them in 20 different colors to get a bulk discount.

    I like mine because it is not bulky and does not get in the way.
