Why is a tennis bracelet called a tennis bracelet?
Tennis bracelets are thin, stylish pieces of wrist jewelry that feature a symmetrical pattern of diamonds and are also known as diamond line bracelets. The name Tennis Bracelet is related back to when Chris Evert, a professional tennis player from 1972 to
1989, lost her designer diamond bracelet designed by George Bedewi during a match at US Open. The clasp that was on her diamond bracelet snapped, fell off and she asked the game officials to pause the tennis match until her jewelry could be found. From that day, the line diamond bracelet has been called the tennis bracelet. Many tennis stars such as Serena Williams continue to wear one.
