5 year win
I have had this bracelet for five years and have worn it constantly for that time. I have some obvious wear on the engraved side but overall it has held up very well. I even had a boss mistake it for a * charm bracelet. I would recommend this bracelet for anyone who needs a medical ID. The silver and gold have a classic look that works well with any color metal I choose to wear. I need to update the medical information on my new ID and that is the only reason I am getting a new one. I am defiantly getting the same bracelet once again
We had the same problem with the clasp - it broke then JA replaced it and it broke again. The JA clasp made out of silver is too weak. Took it to our local jeweler who replaced the JA silver clasp with a stainless steel clasp and no more problems!
Not secure - lost three times
The bracelet is high quality but it fatally flawed as a medical id.
By definition, a piece that serves as a medical alert will be subjected to 24/7 utilization under all types of condition
The clasp broke and I lost it twice (fortunately found). After the second time I asked for a safety to be put on. A secondary chain was installed but the bracelet still slipped off after the clasp failed a third time. Unfortunately, I have not found it, so it must be replaced. I wish I could order a another James Avery piece, but it is just too much money given the high likelihood the clasp will fail again.
Also, if you decide to proceed with an order, ask for extra deep engraving. My name and medical condition was so lightly etched it was difficult to read. Again, the opposite of what you want in a medical emergency.
James Avery makes beautiful jewelry, but this is a working piece and needs to be designed with the core function as the priority which means durability, security, and visibility.
I bought one of these bracelets, clasp broke almost immediately. This was replaced at James Avery, no cost. Apparently the clasp broke again, lost bracelet. The fastening clasp is of poor quality. Too much money spent to loose the bracelet!
