The mustache craze has hit N-Style’s medical ID jewelry line. It seems everywhere you look, a mustache is sure to appear. All over Pinterest and Etsy, mustaches are appearing on coffee mugs, t-shirts, jewelry and just about anything you can think of. The accessory of choice at weddings and children’s parties is the ubiquitous mustaches-on-a-stick. Mustaches are even appearing on baked goods at high-end bakeries, like cupcake toppings in posh neighborhoods like Napa Valley, CA.
While we’re not exactly sure where this craze started (Hipsters?, the Movember movement?), we know our line of medical ID jewelry wouldn’t be complete until we created an homage to the mustache craze.
N-Style ID’s new “Mustache” children's medical ID bracelet is a fun and causal piece covered with a variety of trendy mustache icons and is perfect for everyday wear. Click here to view the “Mustache”: www.n-styleid.com/mustache-medical-id-bracelets
The Mustache bracelet is made of khaki-colored nylon webbing and adjustable with a plastic center push buckle. Even though this band is classified as a children’s medical bracelet, it will also fit an adult size 7" wrist. Excess length may be cut and melted with a heat source to keep the webbing from fraying.
Order the Mustache bracelet complete with the your personalized medical ID tag. Engraving is printed on the back of the slider medical ID tag. Then shop our huge selection of kids medical bracelets without ID tags. All of the bands and bracelets are interchangeable with the original ID tag created for the Mustache. (Warning: This medical bracelet for kids under 3 are not recommended as they may present a choking hazard.)
At N-Style ID, many of the medical ID and medical alert jewelry we make is created for men, women and children with Epilepsy or other seizure disorders. As November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month, we thought we’d wrap-up November with an overview of what you should know and how to react if a loved one or a stranger has a seizure in your presence.
Many of us have never had to provide help and assistance for someone having a seizure. Because of this there are a few misconceptions about providing the correct care for seizures. Aside from some basic steps to follow, most of the time, a person having a seizure requires no assistance other than a caring and calming presence. If you have never seen someone having a seizure, it can be a somewhat scary experience. Just remember to stay calm at all times. Seizures will end within a couple of minutes. Seizures can be very confusing to those experiencing them and your reassuring presence is extremely comforting while the person is in “recovery mode” immediately following a seizure.
Now that you know the importance of staying calm and focused in the presence of someone having a seizure, he’s a list of the top do’s and dont’s for providing care in the event of a seizure:
WHAT TO DO:
- Stay calm!
- Look for medical alert jewelry to confirm that the person has a Epilepsy or a seizure disorder
- Create the safest surrounding environment possible for the person seizing
- Remove sharp objects from around the person to prevent injury
- If possible, try to cushion their head with your hands, a pillow or any soft object to help prevent head injuries
- Try to loosen clothing around their neck
- Try to pay attention to the length of the seizure
- When the seizure is over, be sure to slowly move the person onto their left side. This is VERY important to help open their airway as any swelling of the tongue from the seizure or post-seizure vomiting could obstruct their breathing
- Recovery from the seizure will take a few minutes, but confusion and fatigue is sure to follow. Remain with that person until they are sufficiently recovered
WHAT NOT TO DO:
- Do not attempt to restrain the person’s body while convulsing. – This can cause injury to both yourself and the person suffering the seizure
- Do not put anything in the person’s mouth – This is a major misconception that stems from the concern that a person with a seizure might swallow their tongue. They will not swallow their tongue
- Do not give the person water, food or pills until they are completely recovered
- Do not leave someone alone following the seizure until they have fully regained their bearings
Cal 911 if you are a loved one and the seizure lasts more that five minutes or if you are a stranger and helping someone who is without family or friends.
For those suffering from Epilepsy or a seizure disorder, always carry medical identification in the form of medical alert jewelry and medical ID card. In the event of an emergency, this will enable the people around you, especially strangers, to provide the appropriate treatment and maintain your safety in the event of a seizure.

Medical ID bracelets have a history that spans from 1963 forward. Originally, stainless steel medical alert bracelets were made in three styles that were appropriate for men, women, and children. These less-than-fashionable bracelets were made from sturdy steel chains that connected to a deeply engraved alert-emblem pad.
While the early American Medical Association (AMA) steel medical ID bracelets were a good idea, it was often hard to convince children, teens, and fashionable adults to wear this type of alternative jewelry out into public places. Rescue personnel were trained to search in pockets and under clothing for the ugly lifesaving medical ID bracelets.
By the end of the 1970s, the medical ID bracelets were moving into our current age of computerized technologies. Through new computerized engraving techniques, it became possible to make sturdy alert bracelets out of traditional jewelry materials that were not embarrassing to wear. However, these new stylish bracelets were not widely marketed until after the Internet became readily available in the mid-1990s.
Today, it is possible to purchase medical alert bracelets that are made from artistically crafted precious metals and other jewelry materials. There are colorful bracelets for children, teen-theme bracelets for young adults, and a wide variety of desirable designer-inspired bracelets for adults to wear with every type of clothing fashion. The modern medical ID bracelets are often fine pieces of jewelry that are admired on the wrists of their owners.
The holidays mean shopping around strangers, family gatherings, and trying new types of foods. It is very important to keep your medical ID bracelet on right now. Whether you have a food allergy or a medical condition, being out of your normal routine and around new people means if something were to happen, people need to know how to help you. Obviously it's important to have your medical bracelet on no matter what time of year it is, but here are the top five reasons you should keep it on right now:
1. A medical ID bracelet makes it a lot easier to identify someone who may have a medical condition in a large crowd of people.
2. Wearing medical jewelry could help first responders and bystanders help you if there's a problem.
3. If you have an allergy, this information can be passed along to a doctor or paramedic immediately.
4. If your child wears a medical ID bracelet and they're lost, the bracelet can contain identifiable information so people could easily identify them and return them to you safe and sound.
5. Wearing an N-Style ID medical ID bracelet means you can switch bracelets and dress for any occasion—shopping, dinners, parties, or church—without having to leave your medical information at home.
