Diamonds are a girl’s best friend – Marilyn Monroe

Everyone knows that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but it can be difficult to know who to trust when buying diamond bracelets in London. Diamond bracelets have been around since the ‘Roaring Twenties’, but why are they so popular, and where is the best place to buy them in the English capital?


A brief history of diamond bracelets

Bracelets, in general, have existed since the dawn of civilisation, with Ancient Egyptians creating them from wood, bones and stones. During this period, they were used for religious purposes, such as rebirth and regeneration. Fast forward several thousand years to the 14th century, and the first diamond cutters appeared in Germany. This enabled contemporary jewellers to develop more intricate designs. In the 1920s, diamond bracelets became incredibly fashionable but were known as ‘Diamond Line Bracelets’. Finally, in around the 1980s, they became known as ‘Diamond Tennis Bracelets’. The origins of this name are a little elusive, but it is believed to have come about when World Tennis star, Chris Evert, lost her diamond bracelet during a match in 1987.
