This item was bought for me over 16 or more years ago.....never leaves my wrist and still is just as lovely as when it was given to me. Not only is is practical and very useful to identify your need in an emergency but is also very feminine and beautiful. My sister is now battling Cancer and is Terminal, sadly that is who and why I purchased it. For her upcoming birthday (I hope it will not be her last). She is sure to love it. I have not seen others like it. Mostly they are wide and not so attractive.
Pretty with a purpose
I wish I had this when I was a kid! I wear it 24/7/365. It doesn't bother me when writing or typing on the computer. It is worth it to have something you'll actually wear. My bracelet is going on 20 years, the ID part is a bit scratched, yet the inscription is still readable: "DIABETES INSULIN DEPENDENT". People compliment me without realizing it's for medical ID. I'd love it if JA made this in a two-tone look like the Fishers of Men mixed metals bracelet. Still, totally worth it and I'm glad I have it. I'll buy another one if the engraving ever becomes unreadable.
Stylish and Beautiful
I owned this bracelet since the 1980's always had compliments and never took it off. Lost it one day at beach while swimming. I've look at other medical alert bracelets because food allergies cause me anaphylactic shock, I need to wear one. But
none are as beautiful as this one now I am saving to replace it
Function with Style
I bought my bracelet years ago as I'm allergic to penicillin and augmentin. Unfortunately, I had to take my bracelet off for a surgery and it was stolen. One of these days I hope to have the money to replace it. It's such a lovely bracelet and was stylish enough to make me forget it served a function. I live in NC now and make a point of telling people about James Avery every chance I get!
Great quality and style
This was so much nicer than that usual stainless "medical alert" bracelets, and the engraving was clear and legible; enough space to indicate lymphedema risk. Very happy with this purchase and with the service.
Beautiful bracelet, great customer service.
I recently had a spinal cord stimulator implanted, and my doctor suggested a medical alert bracelet to accompany the ID card. I ordered this one in a large. My wrist measures ~7.4", and I thought the length would be just right. When it arrived, it was a little shorter than expected. Customer service promptly sent a return envelope, examined the bracelet, added an extra link, and shipped it back to me overnight. Also, even with the engraving, I received the bracelet in about 4 days! With the extra link, it's absolutely perfect. I like that it doesn't look like man jewelry, as most of the other med alert bracelets do (especially ones that fit people like me with bigger wrists!). This is pretty, it's easy to hook without having someone do it for you, and it's worth the price.
Great for Lymphedema Risk Bracelet
After becoming at risk for Lymphedema following breast cancer surgery, I was told to get a medical alert bracelet. After looking at the tacky selections online, I serious debated if I needed one. Then I found this one. It fits my message "Lymphedema Risk No Needles or BP Left Arm." Perfect! I wear it every day. Now, I am trying to figure out how to add a charm like the Awareness Ribbon Finial to it. I want to be able to add a charm or take it off when I want, like on the new Changeable Charm Bracelet.
After being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes I decided that if I was going to have to wear a medical alert piece of jewelry I wanted a stylish yet timeless piece. I'm glad I chose this model, its beautiful and doesn't look awkward like some others. Overall i'm extremely pleased and would highly recommend this bracelet to anyone!
Over 10 years still looks & works great
All my life, I hated wearing the super ugly stainless steel medical alert jewelry, but this bracelet is so lovely, people compliment me on it without realizing it is for emergencies. I was worried a bit that it was so pretty ER's & EMT's wouldn't notice it, but they are trained to look for the symbol.
I've had this bracelet for over 10 years. It says, "DIABETES INSULIN DEPENDENT." The reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 stars is: I'd like to engrave more words on it, and I wish it was available in gold (since I have to wear it everyday, it would be nice to have another option. . .).
My daughter was diagnosed w/ diabetes when she was in the 8th grade. She hated the idea of being "labeled" and we were thrilled to find this unique medical alert bracelet. Now in college, she continues to received compliments on this piece of "jewelry" and loves the style as well as the security it provides. It has lasted seven years to date and she is as pleased today as the day we purchased it. Our only wish is that it were available in gold also!
Fantastic bracelet with great style
If you, like me, have to wear a medical alert bracelet at all times, this is definitely the one to get. It's not inexpensive and the engraving isn't without cost either, but the quality is unsurpassed. I had my first bracelet for about eight years and then I had to have more engraving added. And since it was going to be a problem to re-engrave, I simply purchased a new one. I would have never done this if I wasn't sure of the quality, durability, longevity, and beauty. It has served me well for many years and I wouldn't wear any other medical alert bracelet. I only take it off to polish it ocassionaly. Otherwise it's on me whether it's in the shower or outside in the garden. I get so many compliments! If you have to wear a medical alert bracelet, please give some thought to this one. If it is too large for you, you can have a jeweler remove a link or two. You won't regret it.
This is a beautifully crafted bracelet that represents the James Avery tradition of exceptional jewelry. If you who needs to wear a medical alert, you will enjoy putting this lovely bracelet on every day. It is comfortable, stylish, and of superb quality. It was a great purchase!
Worth it !!
I bought my bracelet about 5 years ago and I love it!
It doesn't look like a medical bracelet at first glance. I get compliments on it all the time. I keep it on at all times and it has never gotten in the way.
Attractive and Helpful . . .
When it was suggested I wear a medical alert bracelet, I responded, "I will wear an EMT alert braclet when James Avery designs it!"
Well, guess what? JA offers an attractive Alert bracelet!
I received this bracelet as a gift for my birthday. It is good-looking and keeps me safe.
JA, you're amazing--you think of everything!
I love it
My medical bracelet is absolutely beautiful. Not only do I feel safe knowing that it will speak for me if I can't, but I get lots of compliments. The bracelet was my first purchase from James Avery, but will not be my last.
