As an absolute style must-have, nothing beats the elegance of the diamond tennis bracelet. This design, consisting of a simple line of beautifully set, matching diamonds worn around the wrist has been in vogue for decades.
Although the concept, originally referred to as an eternity or line bracelet, has been a favourite for generations, its current name is relatively young.
The term ‘Tennis Bracelet’ was coined during the 1987 U.S. open when a chic young tennis champion called Chris Evert stopped play. She had word her precious diamond bracelet to court that day, and played so vigorously that the clasp broke. In sheer panic the sport star initiated an emergency search before play could continue. When the renegade jewel was found, the camera zoomed in for a close-up and millions of women across the globe desired one just like it.
Although fine jewellery is not typically considered sports accessories, high end jewellers had to start adding safely chains and clips to their eternity bracelets as selling points for the active diamond lover. Think Serena Williams and you’re on the right track.
