The Prettiest Medic Alert Bracelet Ever!

I have this really ugly med alert bracelet that I've hated since I've gotten it. Of course, it's a necessary evil, but that doesn't mean I like it. However, after looking at different bracelets on the web, I had an idea--why not have a friend make me a different bracelet to attach to the medallion?

My main concern was would the bracelet look so much like a bracelet people would overlook it? The bracelets that I saw on the web, including those sold by the Medic Alert company themselves, has versions that were very, very busy and distracting. I figured since they would check my wrist for a pulse, or they would place a hospital band on it, that if the medallion wasn't overshadowed by the bracelet, I'd be okay.

This is a picture of my old ugly bracelet with the new creation next to it:

Because of the above reasons, I had my friend make a bracelet that was basically the same width as the original bracelet with a subtle, understated pattern. As you can see in this picture, the medallion and clasps take up nearly the entire width of my wrist. I'm not worried about it being overlooked:

The weight of the medallion tends to pull it down to the underside of my wrist. This happened with the old bracelet as well. But this time, the view on top is much prettier:
