Frequently Asked Questions
How much is your shipping?
Please see our Shipping Info Link on the menu bar. We have several choices and also offer International shipping to select countries.Does my Creative Medical ID jewelry have a guarantee?
Yes! Our products come with a 90-day guarantee from the date we ship on your original order. We guarantee against defects in workmanship under normal use. We do not guarantee jewelry when worn in water or during sports. We do not cover loss or wear & tear.Can I wear my beaded bracelet or watchlet while bathing or swimming?
Creative Medical ID uses the finest 49 strand, nylon coated, stainless steel flexible jewelers wire. When this wire is repeatedly exposed to water it eventually will break, therefore we cannot guarantee or recommend wearing your bracelet in water. If your bracelet contains Swarovski Faux pearls or silver plate chlorine, acid, perfume, hairspray and other chemicals may damage the finish. Treat your Creative Medical ID beaded bracelet with care. You may wear our all stainless bracelets in water!I have a Nickel allergy. Can I wear your medical jewelry?
Our beaded products are manufactured with .925 sterling silver crimps, clasps, fluted & round beads. Please note that the Bali silver beads used in our designs do contain a very small percentage of pewter which may cause a reaction if you are very sensitive to Nickel.
Our stainless, sterling silver and gold-filled jewelry is not hypo-allergenic.
Please be careful when making your selection, as we do not give refunds or exchanges on custom-made medical jewelry due to Nickel allergies.How do I know what size to select?
Measure carefully before you order! Wrap a soft tape measure around the wrist where it bends to get an accurate wrist measurement. Now read what the sizing instructions ask you to do on each individual style. On beaded styles add one inch to get the correct size.
WHY ADD 1 INCH? The extra room is needed to allow for a rigid tag,
the two lobster clasps and beads. When the wrist is measured acurately
this formula will give a comfortable fit.What should I engrave on my Medical ID Tag?
See our Engraving Help Link on the Menu. Select the most important, life-threating medical information, in case you cannot speak for yourself. Putting your medical condition is important. Many choose to have their full name, the diagnosis and an "ICE" (In case of emergency)telephone number, rather than the medication taken, as that may change.What is your policy on Gold-Filled Medical ID Bracelets?

YES, all sterling silver & gold-filled jewelry tarnishes when exposed water, salt water, acidic skin and even the air. An ultrasonic cleaner or a non-abrasive polishing cloth (such as Sunshine) will remove tarnish. (Do not put beaded strands in ultrasonic cleaner.) What is Gold Filled jewelry?
Gold-filled describes when a layer of gold is mechanically bonded with heat and pressure to one or more surfaces of the supporting base metal,such as brass, then rolled or drawn to a given thickness. In the jewelry industry the quantity of gold must be at least 1/20th by weight of the total product. Gold Filled items will remain gold for a lifetime if cared for properly. Unless you are using harsh chemicals abrasives, lotions or perfumes, the gold layer will stay gold for years to come! How do I care for my sterling silver or gold-filled ID Tag?
When storing jewelry, do not mix gold with silver, spearate the metals by compartments. Sterling silver and gold-filled are soft precious metals and vulnerable to scratching, so be careful. Consider purchasing a stainless steel Medical ID tag for everyday wear.Is it possible to get a full refund on my custom made bracelet or watchlet?
