***UPDATE: I ended up reviewing this and re-posting it after making some changes. Apparently, I was getting some of my facts confused. Oops!***
Ok, let me start off by saying that I was not paid to write this review, I was sent this bracelet to review honestly, and I intend to.
So right from the start the packaging is pretty nice, so if you are thinking about getting this for a gift for someone (this is a woman’s bracelet), you are pretty good right out of the box. Don’t believe me? That’s okay, here’s a photo (what would one of my reviews be without 1,000 photos, right?):
The bracelet itself if very nice looking. It is definitely good for everyday wear. I don’t know that I would really wear it in the shower and whatnot (a lot of these types of bracelets have rhodium plating and it can wear away after exposure), But it’s definitely a good, understated piece to add to your collection of jewelry (or medical alert bracelets, if you have one, I guess). There is also a wallet card in there that has info like your name, address, medical condition, meds, emergency contact, and so on.
Now, there are all kinds of magnets and things going on here and I have to say, they are definitely really cool. I don’t happen to notice any difference in the magnetic bracelets vs. non-magnetic ones, but I guess I don’t really know what I’m looking for. I would assume if you were to opt to buy this specific bracelet for someone or yourself, you know a little of the positive effects of magnetic therapy. For some info about it, check this link out.
The bracelet is beautiful, yet understated. I can wear this with a white t-shirt and jeans, OR with a little black dress and it would look good either way. I love the look of this bracelet, I can’t say it enough!
I DO have one little problem with this bracelet, and I do mean little. The symbol for “Medical alert” is very small and I think would be easy to miss. This concerns me a bit. The back of the link with the alert symbol says “DIABETES – see wallet card” which is surely sufficient. My take? Yeah, the medical alert symbol is pretty small, but it comes with a wallet card and, if God forbid there was in incident where you were out of it (enough to someone to need to see a medical alert bracelet), first responders would look through your wallet for an ID anyway and BOOM the card is there. Either way, you’re good to go.
Pros: great design, secure clasp, magnetic qualities, wallet card included.
Cons: small medical alert symbol
Overall, I love this bracelet and intent to wear it often. It is durable, beautiful, and would work with almost any jewelry piece I would wear OR works on its own. While the symbol is small, I would be carrying a wallet card so if someone missed the medical alert symbol (which they wouldn’t if they looked), I would still be good. While I remain undecided on the magnetic therapy part, I have no experience with it, so I know either way.
Here’s the link for the bracelet on the website if you want to check it out, it sells for 34.95 USD
I vote 4 out of 5 stars!
