The ID Bracelet

5 months ago by

I have a real fondness for ID bracelets, they’re strong, masculine, classic. The kind of thing you’d love to see on your guy’s wrist with the intention of borrowing it long term one day. Kind of like a Rolex – a well made piece that looks good on both men and women.

I hadn’t thought there was much of a variation in size and style of ID bracelets (save for the baby versions often gifted to newborns – so cute) until I recently came across these dainty gems from Loren Stewart. So delicate and ladylike, they reminded me of Laura’s stacked bracelets that she wore everyday, which got me thinking about how the ID bracelet could, and probably should, be my own newly admired wrist story.

  • Thank you, Brie, for reminding me that I have an ID bracelet sitting in my dresser drawer. It is older than I am and a real treasure and to me it is priceless. It is my mother’s ID bracelet from when she was in the WAVES (United States Naval Reserves for Women) during WWII. It is an ID bracelet in every sense of the word. On one side is her name, her serial number is engraved on the inside. I guess the women got them instead of dog tags.

  • As ID bracelets for men are extremely cheesy according to French taste, is this thing in the US OK, to is it some quirk fashion thing that brings cheesy objects to trendiness ?

    LOVE my ID baby bracelet, now attach it to my moms! double name tag ;)

  • Hi, great piece! I too have a gold id chain link bracelet from Milan circa 1940’s…. so classic, simple . He lived in Italy for many years and it was I believe given to him as a gift in the early 40’s. His first name is engraved on it in a very faint delicate cursive..subtle ( Italians do these things so well..) I’m going to wear it more , might think of getting the clasp tightened ( it wobbles a bit) as that is the only reason it’s not an everyday wear item. Thanks for the write up…inproed to wear it everyday now! I Thank you GD team for all you do:). xo Helena
