I wonder if you ever thought these words would go together: beautiful medical jewelry. Can you believe it? Sadly, when a medical condition requires some sort of identification, the options are typically very clinical and sterile. Here are some alternative medical alert pieces that are beautiful and functional. Who knows, you may find that you want to collect a variety of pieces to accessorize your outfits (and check out my medical jewelry for men post)!

This dainty, on-trend necklace is subtle, but conveys all the necessary information to a first responder. Unless you are close-up, it looks just like a regular bar necklace. The seller also offers it in a variety of necklace lengths and finishes. This is so lovely, it would even make a meaningful gift!
How beautiful and simple are these necklaces? They would look lovely just peeking out from under a shirt. With multiple sides, these pendants also allow you to list up to four medical conditions, which eliminates the need for several medical alert pieces. Of course, if you love them you could still go ahead and collect a few! I love that they are available in a variety of sizes and finishes.
If you prefer the look of a bracelet, these cuff bracelets are beautiful. Wear one for a single diagnosis, or stack several (even in different sizes and finishes) to reflect more than one diagnosis. While some medical jewelry looks polished and mechanized, I actually love the handmade feel of these stamped bracelets.
Simple and understated, this rose gold bracelet is elegant. As an added bonus, the firm bangle design makes this bracelet easy to fasten (a plus if you suffer from joint pain or limited mobility).
If dainty metal jewelry isn’t really your thing, here is another stunning option. This leather wrap bracelet is customizable and has just a little bit of a boho flair. The shop also has a variety of options for charm bracelets and different styles of wrap bracelets.
Jewelry’s not really your thing? No problem! With this watch band tag, you can add an alert subtly to your current device watch. The tag can be personalized to include all the important information a first responder would need.
If rings are more your style, this quirky twist ring could be an option. This hand-stamped ring could be personalized to include up to 3-4 diagnoses, listed either on the outside or the inside of the ring. One word of caution with any piece of jewelry with information hidden inside, make sure there is some indication on the outside of the jewelry that it is a medical alert. A finger may not be the first place a first responder looks for information, especially if the ring looks like a regular piece of jewelry! Still, this is a fun, unique way to have the necessary information on you at all times.
