Alternative Medical Jewelry for Men

It can be challenging to find medical alert jewelry that doesn’t look strictly clinical, especially for men. If you are a man who doesn’t accessorize much, this can be especially challenging. Here are some stunning alternative options for having the important information on you at all times, without compromising on personality or style (check out my separate post if you’re looking for women’s medical alert jewelry).

I particularly like to support small businesses, socially-responsible sellers, and other disabled/chronically ill individuals whenever possible.

The first tag has engraved medical caduceus symbol and stamped letters, “R-S.” The second necklace, the back view, reads in bold block imprinted lettering, “Type 1 Diabetes.” Beneath this in lighter block type, we read “Allergic to Penicillin.”

A new twist on the traditional dog tag, these wooden necklaces with leather lacing are a great option for medical alert wear. They are contemporary and masculine, and have enough space to include multiple diagnoses or alerts. These tags are customizable and come in a variety of wood types.

A contemporary, masculine take on the traditional medical alert necklace, this piece is a great option. It includes some options for customization, and the printed information on the back of the pendant is clear and easy to read. This is a sharp option for daily wear.

A black tag on watch band just under the screen is stamped with customizable information in block white font and reads, at an angle, “Jamie D. Johnson, Los Angeles, California, U-S-A. Tony 859-426-3459, DAD, Sue 859-426-3456, MOM, Eric 859-426-3457, BRO. Never give up.”

If you wear an Apple or similar device watch daily, why not add a tag to the band? This is a subtle way to have all of your pertinent information on you at all times. The tag is fully customizable with all of the information a first responder would need. It’s available in a choice of colors, too, to match the watch band as closely as possible.

The bottom band is brown and is stamped with medical caduceus symbol, and reads in block lettering, “Type 1” with remaining letters not visible in the shot. A black leather band sits on top with same symbol, and stamped with “Insulin D–” with remaining letters not visible in the photo.

These simple leather bands are perfect for providing medical information in a unique, stylish way. They are available in a variety of colors. Wear just one, or stack them for a look that is versatile and comfortable.

This sleek bangle is another great option for inconspicuous medical jewelry. The streamline design is subtle, but provides plenty of space for all the important information. I like that the writing is actually not visible to most people, since it maintains privacy. And, of course, it’s available in a variety of finishes.

For a bit of a sporty, outdoorsy look, this option is great! It can be fully customized with your name, diagnosis/medical condition, allergies, or whatever is most pertinent. It comes with different finish options and can be worn in water if needed.

If you prefer the look of a ring, here is a great option. This ring is customizable and can be engraved with your diagnosis, allergy alert, or medical condition. The style is subtle and sleek, but allows you to have all the information a first responder would need at (practically!) your fingertips.
