Bracelets: rules for proper wear

Bracelets must be conservative, no wider than half an inch, and must not present a safety hazard. The wear of traditional metal POW/MIA bracelets, which come in colors other than silver, bronze or gold, remains authorized. Conservative is defined as plain, not drawing attention, or faddish (must be gold or silver). Bracelets for identification for medical alert purposes are authorized as long as they are conservative. Bracelets espousing support for a cause, philosophy, individual or group are not authorized. Gemstones/tennis bracelets are authorized to be worn only with the mess dress uniform.
