The tennis bracelet is an iconic style that is always in fashion. Its simplicity may be the reason for its enduring popularity. Essentially a row of perfectly matched diamonds set in gold, silver, platinum, or other precious metals, tennis bracelets are the pinnacle of low-key luxury.
The term “tennis bracelet” was coined after a famous incident involving Chris Evert, a professional tennis player. During an intense match in the US Open, her George Bedewi diamond bracelet broke and flew off her wrist.
Evert asked for the match to be stopped while she looked for her bracelet on the court. Not long after, Evert’s bracelet and its maker George Bedewi became famous.
After some time, more and more jewelers created similar bracelets with handmade inline diamonds and clasps that could withstand intense physical activities like tennis. People soon began wearing diamond tennis bracelets both off and on the court.
Tennis Bracelet Features
Apart from its beauty and sophistication, one standout feature of tennis bracelets is their ability to remain securely fastened. Many jewelers add a safety clasp, so if the primary clasp comes undone, the bracelet will stay in place.
What To Consider When Buying a Tennis Bracelet
Quality of the stones is one factor that you should consider when choosing a tennis bracelet.
While tennis bracelets are traditionally crafted using natural diamonds, man-made diamonds and moissanites are excellent and more affordable alternatives.
Lab-grown diamonds have fewer defects than their mined counterparts, while moissanite will never get cloudy or discolored. It’s also easier to find beautiful options in any price range when you choose man-made diamonds or moissanites.
