Emergency Jewelry & Wallet Cards

A cryonics emergency necklace and/or bracelet is only available for Cryonics Institute (CI) Members who have made all the necessary arrangements to be cryopreserved by CI. This means CI Members who have full funding in place and executed contracts (that is, contracts that have been signed by the Cryonics Institute Contracts Officer). The Cryonics Institute also issues wallet cards with emergency contact information. And we have stickers that can be affixed to a driver's license or other cards.

 

We sell our standardized bracelets and necklaces to CI Members for $15 in the US and $20 outside of the US each to CI Members who have cryopreservation arrangements in place. Customized bracelets and necklaces can be purchased for $25 in the US and $35 outside of the US each. There is no charge for wallet cards or stickers.

To date, a necklace or bracelet has only rarely made a difference in the survival of a cryonics patient of any cryonics organization in an emergency situation. However wearing this jewelry reminds relatives, friends and acquaintances of the intention to be cryopreserved. When unconscious patients are brought into the emergency room of a hospital, staff immediately pull the clothes back and expose the chest. The staff are much more likely to see a necklace than a bracelet. Some cryonicists have covered their chests with tatooed emergency instructions in bold letters.

 

 

As stated above, jewelry with personalized instructions can be purchased for $20 each. Personalized jewelry can include any desired instructions.

 

 

The constraints for the bracelet are:
FRONT: maximum 25 characters per line, 5 lines
BACK: maximum 38 characters per line, 6 lines

 

 

Because of the circular shape of the necklace, not all lines can have the same maximum length, however. The maximum length of a line on either side would be 22 characters. The shortest lines would be about 12 characters. The front can have 7 lines and the back can have 11 lines.

 

 

Below is an example showing the personalized jewelry of psuedo name (Chris Smith).

Laminated wallet cards and stickers are available on request for Cryonics Institute Members who have full funding in place and executed contracts for cryopreservation at CI. The cards and stickers have similar information to what is on the standardized jewelry. Members wanting personalized wallet cards and stickers can make their own.

 

 

A bright orange laminated wallet card is the size of a business card. A bright yellow laminated wallet card is the size of a credit card. A white sticker which is the same length and half the height of a business card is available which can be attached to a driver's license or other card. Cryonics Institute Members who have contracts with Suspended Animation, Inc. are supplied with special-purpose credit-card sized wallet cards.

 

 

Cryonics Institute Members living in jurisdictions that have statutes against autopsy based on religious belief and who have such religious beliefs can execute a "Certificate of Religious Belief and Religious Objection to Autopsy". Citation of the relevant statute could be added to personalized jewelry and/or wallet cards. For example, a Californian could have "NO AUTOPSY: CA CODE SECTION 27491.43" (see Avoiding Autopsy for Cryonics).

 

 

Cryonics Institute Members who have full funding in place and executed contracts wishing to order jewelry can send payment by mail with check or money order enclosed to the Cryonics Institute, 24355 Sorrentino Court, Clinton Township MI 48035 USA (payable to the Cryonics Institute).
