The diamond tennis bracelet has an interesting story behind it. 25 years ago, there was no distinguishing an ordinary diamond bracelet from its thinner counterpart. But when Chris Evert, the world’s former No. 1 women’s tennis player was playing in the 1987 U.S. Open, her slim diamond tennis bracelet broke. The match was paused to allow her to collect the spilled diamonds. Afterward, all diamond tennis bracelets of a thin, lightweight style were called tennis bracelets. Even today, stars such as Serena Williams wear diamond tennis bracelets on the court and off.
These bracelets are so popular because they are elegant, easy to wear, and light enough to feel comfortable in when wearing evening dress or more casual clothing. Because diamonds are colorless they are easy to pair with dark and light colors, as well as other jewelry, such as yellow diamond rings or other colored gemstone rings.
Diamond jewelry in general is one of the best ways to exude class and gentility. And the style of the diamond tennis bracelet symbolizes a more active lifestyle than the traditional diamond earrings or diamond pendant; it’s a more modern style of jewelry wear which makes it considerably more appealing for the active woman.
