Cuff bracelets are clean and simple but can definitely become a fashion statement. Check out Cuff Medical ID Bracelets in Sterling Silver.

4. Transparent White Crystals – this is Top 1 on Glowsly’s list, the transparency game consists of see-through earrings, charms, and beads.

5. Baroque Style Jewelry – royal style jewelry that features precious gems and medallions will make a fashion statement in 2018. Medallions form part of Baroque fashion’s riches. Add a touch of this trend with an elegant medical ID necklace fit for a queen. How would you like to try this Rose Gold Medallion with Diamond medical ID necklace?


We’re convinced, medical IDs can be stylish and on point the latest trends! But more important than following what’s on the runway, choose a medical ID you’d personally love to wear every day. Here are some tips to get the perfect medical ID that’s right for you:

1. Sizing – Base your size on actual wrist measurement. When in doubt, get in touch with Customer Service to help you find the best fit based on your own fitting preference: loose, comfort, or snug fit.

2. Neck and Bracelet Chains / Bands – these hold your medical ID plate in place and make up 80% of your medical ID jewelry. Choose the material that’s suitable for your lifestyle. Dressier options like beaded chains and suede are durable but not as durable as precious metals like Stainless Steel, Sterling Silver or Gold.Remember to note if you have any metal allergies and consult Customer Service on recommended options.

“You can get an ID that fits you, your personality and your condition. American Medical ID has so many styles to choose from for men, women and children! All their items can be custom engraved. All items are engraved and ship the following day! How amazing!” – Paloma Kevak, Diabetes Advocate and Blogger at


3. Custom engraving – Engraved medical information that’s unique to your medical condition can be life-saving in case of emergency. If you’re not sure of what to put on your medical ID, seek advice from your physician on the most crucial information to include.
