Life Saving Jewelry

April 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 154

I have spent many years working in the field of health care. One of the most interesting developments in the area of personal health safety has been the use of jewelry as a life saving tool. Who would think that you could join those two concepts of personal safety and adornment? Jewelry has been a part of our history for centuries but its use as a mechanism to save a person's life in an emergency is a much more recent development. Today many people suffer from chronic diseases that set them up for potential medical crises. Diseases such as diabetes, and allergies have the potential to flare up and create an emergency situation at any time and any place. The medical jewel box, as I call it, provides types of jewelry that identify the person's problem thus enabling emergency personnel and even by-standers with enough medical information to help a stricken individual.

When the first medical ID bracelets (the first generation medical jewelry) became available they were utilitarian and anything but attractive. They provided information - the most important aspect of their use - but they did nothing to enhance the loveliness of the wearer as most jewelry sets out to do!

Today, that is a different story. What started out as rather bulky, heavy stainless steel engraved bracelets with more of a dog tag look has emerged in the hands of creative jewelers as more subtle yet useful ways to both adorn and save.

Now a jewelry line unto themselves, these methods of medical alert

Use all sorts of materials including leather, precious metals, rubber, beads and gem stones. One of the most attractive ID bracelets may well be the beaded variety. Made with glass, pearls, and precious gems, these are colorful, durable and offer a more delicate expression of this type of jewelry.

A particular type of engraving can also add to the style of the jewelry whether it is a bracelet, necklace, or key chain. The more traditional engraving is said to be more elegant than the laser approach but the laser may be more clearly visible with its solid black lettering.

The even more recent focus on having medical information stored on a piece of jewelry has resulted in what are bracelets with "usb storage devices." These jewelry devices provide much more medical history and information since they have a great deal of storage capability. Amazing as it may seem, these pieces of jewelry still combine the attractiveness of a piece of jewelry with practicality due to the information they store.

Whatever you may choose to wear, you can be stylish and safe by choosing jewelry to make medics and others aware of your medical problem thus significantly improving your chance to be cared for more immediately and successfully in an emergency situation. The cost of this jewelry can be as inexpensive or elegant as your budget will allow. It is good to realize that we have come a long way in making medical alert jewelry something that can both adorn and save!
