What is the meaning of the tennis bracelet?
The tennis bracelet, more commonly called diamond bracelet, only received its famous tennis name after an interesting event that took place in 1978 on the tennis courts of the US Open. Professional tennis player Chris Evert lost her diamond bracelet during a game because the closure of the bracelet snapped. Evert right away asked to suspend the game until the bracelet was found.
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” – Wayne Gretzky
Since that special day, it has been called the tennis bracelet and it has become one of the most popular diamond bracelets of all times. Incidentally, pausing the game had no negative impact whatsoever on the outcome of the game as Evert won the tournament for the fourth time.
The tennis bracelet owes its name to a famous tennis player who lost her diamond bracelet during the US Open of 1978.
What is a tennis bracelet?
The tennis bracelet is a classy bracelet with a beautiful symmetric pattern of diamonds. It consists of one continuous line of diamonds that are set individually in a fairly invisible setting, each link connected to the other. This is the main feature that makes the tennis bracelet so special, it is moving and dynamic. It is not like a rigid bangle set with diamonds, it moves with your body and allows the diamonds to catch every bit of light there is.
Tennis star Chris Evert is responsible for the naming of the tennis bracelet.
Which variations of the tennis bracelet exist today?
Given the popularity of tennis bracelets, today you can find bracelets with 2, 3 or more lines of diamonds in a row. The diamonds can be any shape and set in a variety of settings such as the bezel or the fishtail. The choice is yours and given that you can wear this bracelet with any outfit, it only comes down to your favourite metal colour, diamond shape and bracelet style.
But given its value, the bracelet should always have a safety clasp with a side latch to give extra security.
