This cost-effective RFID tag can track high-value retail items and fine jewelry. Made of sturdy polyester, the tag encircles an item and stays in place until removed with scissors. Once secured in place, it is extremely difficult to remove this tag by ripping it off. Typical applications for this tag include, but are not limited to, jewelry, apparel hang tags, pharmaceuticals, cable markers and other items with limited space for identification.

The William Frick RFID Retail & Jewelry Tag works with well with metals like gold and silver, as well as other materials. The tag enables versatile read angles. In addition, this tag can be combined with AuthentiCal® technology, making it tamper-evident.

The size and shape of the tag can be adjusted to allow a choice of inlays, frequencies and applications.
