Pretty, Practical, and Security Conscious Jewelry

Whether we like it or not, security has become an important element in our lives.  Wearing identification badges is a large part of that. From teachers to nurses, doctors to cruise passengers, ID badges and the lanyards to hold them are a big part of our lives.

That’s the grim side; now for the fashionista side.  Pretty lanyards that coordinate with our clothes and match our personality are far better for our emotional and professional wellbeing that those slightly scruffy woven types handed out by companies, complete with advertising logos.  For example, here is an elegant, sophisticated lanyard that would coordinate perfectly with a business suit:

For something softer and a bit more feminine, the same design is executed in pink:

 A rustic, tumbles gemstone model is great for those who prefer natural stones:

 And for those who like animals, or work in places where cute lanyards fit in perfectly you can wear:

The thing to remember though, is while we may need to concentrate on security and safety, we can do so while still remaining true to our fashion style.
