I have been wearing an American ID bracelet for 7 years now and this purchase is pretty much a duplicate from my last purchase. My last one lasted about 2 years. The engraving wore out on the top part. I paid to have it re-engraved by a jeweler, but that unfortunately did not last long, so I choose to order another identical one from American ID. The unfortunate part is that they shortened the amount of engraving allowed on each side, so I had to get creative to make sure the most important information was somehow described on the bracelet plaque. I have more than one health issue, so it was hard.
