The tennis bracelet is a classic that is coming back with more flare.
The Origin of the Tennis Bracelet
The “Tennis Bracelet” got its sporty name after an unintentional jewelry history moment. Tennis star Chris Evert wore a delicate diamond bracelet during her US Open match in 1978. Her bracelet broke and fell off in the middle of a point. The match was stopped so officials could help search for it. No one is sure who officially coined the name, but there is no doubt that it inspired the modern day piece.
While this style bracelet had been popular throughout the 80s and 90s, tennis bracelets are back with extra style but with the same classic charm. There are so many variations of this piece from simple and understated to chunky and fun. Whatever your personal style is, this classic silhouette is here to stay and can be customized to your liking. It’s versatile, classy, and will never go out of style.
If you’re not already convinced, here’s why the tennis bracelet should be on your diamond wishlist!
You can wear it with anything. If Chris could wear it on the court, it’s good enough for us- anywhere, anytime! This is a piece that you never have to take off. It can be worn solo or stacked with your other favorite wrist accessories. It's a simple piece that adds that extra sparkle to any look.
You can design it in your style. Tennis bracelets don’t just come one size fits all. You can stick with the forever in style pronged setting or have each diamond bezel-set for a more retro look. Whether you love the exposed metal look or would rather be flashing all diamonds, tennis bracelets can have more personality than you might have thought.
You can keep it budget- friendly. With so much variation, jewelers can work more easily within your budget. You can keep it thin and modest or make a statement with more metal work and bigger diamonds. You can even choose between lab grown or natural diamonds and different precious metals. All these options give a little more flexibility for you to create something you love.
You can keep this piece forever. Tennis bracelets make an amazing heirloom piece that can be passed down through generations. As such a simple staple, this bracelet will never go out of style, making it a much needed addition to any fine jewelry collection.
If you are searching for the perfect gift for someone or are simply shopping for a little treat for yourself, tennis bracelets are ideal for any big (or small) occasion.
