If you've been reading my blog or watching my vlogs for the past couple of months, you will know that I had an allergic reaction in work and I then had a severe asthma attack weeks later and have been recovering ever since (yes you read that correctly, I'm still recovering 4 months later which gives you an idea of how unwell I was!). Having lived with these medical conditions and allergies for several years now, it's about time I updated my Medical ID jewellery to show the most correct information and keep me safe in an emergency.

Medical ID jewellery is essential for people with allergies and medical conditions, it is particularly important when you are in an emergency and you are unable to talk for yourself. The idea behind the jewellery is that is worn on pulse points with the recognisable Caduceus symbol (it's the symbol that looks like a snake around a stick with wings at the top, like you can see in the image above), so that should you become unwell and unable to communicate, anyone that checks your pulse will find your Medical ID with important medical conditions or allergies on which can help with prompt diagnosis to allow fast and effective treatment.

After some discussions with the Infection Control team and the Matron at work, we came to the conclusion that having my Medical ID as a necklace instead of a bracelet would work best and comply with hospital policies. You would not believe how expensive Medical ID necklaces can run and after much searching (and not finding anything that I liked for a reasonable price), Butler & Grace came through with this Enchanted Heart Charm Necklace for the super reasonable £21.95.

You would not believe how long it took me to decide on a necklace once I'd decided I was getting a Medical ID necklace, Butler & Grace have so many different designs in a bunch of different colours so you can guarantee that you'll find a Medical ID to match your style. I decided to go for the stainless steel heart charm as I figured the stainless steel would be the hardest wearing one in terms of wearing it to work as I didn't want to be replacing it time and time again (and thankfully I won't have to).

For me, the necklace sits at the perfect place as the charm sits in the middle of my chest making it easily visible no matter what outfit I'm wearing, it also sits at the perfect place for when I'm wearing my scrubs at work. I am completely amazed by the quality of the necklace I received, both myself and Sam were amazed by the weight of the necklace. I felt that the charm and chain felt like such high quality (especially when you consider it only retails for £21.95!) and it didn't feel super light or flimsy, it actually had a really good weight to it so I'm not worried about breaking and getting lost. 

It's so important for anyone with allergies or a serious medical condition (particularly any conditions where you may become unwell and unable to communicate your allergies or medical history) to make sure they're wearing Medical ID jewellery. After spending SO many hours looking for high quality, reasonably priced Medical ID bracelets and necklaces, I'm so glad that I've found Butler & Grace and I'm already looking at getting a bracelet form of my necklace to wear when I want to/can't wear a necklace! Considering all the jewellery is laser printed, it arrived super quickly, I am talking literally max a few days. It also came in a protective box with extra padding so it could be kept safe, it also came with care instructions so I knew how to best take care of it so that it'd stand the test of time!

Do you know anyone that should have a Medical ID but probably doesn't?

Speak to you next time!
*I was gifted a new medical ID necklace by Butler & Grace. All thoughts are opinions are honest and my own.
