The Tennis Bracelet


WHAT IS A TENNIS BRACELET?

No jewellery box is complete without the classic tennis bracelet. This elegant piece of jewellery can be made in the more budget-friendly style of sterling silver with cubic zirconia or the more popular style of white gold with diamonds.

Tennis bracelets consist of dozens of diamonds set all the way around a thin, loose fitting bracelet. They can sometimes feature other gemstones such as sapphires, rubies or emeralds.

Like most diamond jewellery, tennis bracelets have a range of setting styles such as prong, channel and bezel setting. However,  the most popular style remains pave.

This sparkling piece of jewellery embodies the elegance and luxury of diamond jewellery.

WHY IS IT CALLED A TENNIS BRACELET?

Tennis bracelets, when they first gained popularity in the 1920’s, were originally referred to as Eternity Bracelets due to their similar design to eternity rings.

It wasn’t until the 1987 US Open that term “tennis bracelet” was coined, after tennis player Chris Evert insisted officials to stop the game mid-play after she realised she had lost her diamond eternity bracelet during the match.

The media attention that came from this event caused sales to skyrocket and the “tennis bracelet” was born.

Chris Evert has often joked about not getting commission from the tennis bracelet phenomenon!
