What is a Tennis Bracelet?

 This piece of jewelry is several small diamonds and /or other gems connected by a thin chain made of precious metal. The stones run the full length of the bracelet. They are made in 14K white gold, 18K yellow gold, and platinum, with some more affordable versions in sterling silver. 

 Originally, this jewelry piece was known as a line diamond bracelet. It gained its name tennis bracelet in 1987. Names may come from famous people or a relevant geographical location. In this case, the name comes from an incident on a tennis court. 

 During a match at the US Open, Chris Evert lost her diamond bracelet, and the game was paused for it to be found. After this televised incident, jewelers were inundated with requests for the "tennis bracelet" in the same way that so many hair stylists were asked for the "Rachel cut". Since then, the line diamond bracelet is most popularly called the tennis bracelet. 

Here is a guide to the diamond tennis bracelet and its timeless style which makes it one of the hottest jewelry trends in 2023.

They Exude Timeless Elegance

Tennis bracelets have always been considered elegant jewelry, which as we mentioned above, can be worn with any kind of outfit to add sparkle to a casual look or further enhance the existing elegance of a formal ensemble. And, if you're world famous, you can even wear it doing sports! 

There is something effortlessly sophisticated about a tennis bracelet and this doesn't diminish regardless of the precious metal used or the size of the diamonds.

They Offer Maximum Versatility

Tennis bracelets make such popular jewelry gifts and purchases because they are so versatile and in various ways.

We've already seen their versatility in working with any outfit.  You may think that there is narrow scope in their design but a tennis bracelet may differ in terms of metal type, the carat weight of the diamonds, and the settings that hold the diamonds (prong, bezel, or channel.) Although brilliant white diamonds are the most popular choice, tennis bracelets can use other diamond shapes such as cushion-cut diamonds.

Another statement of their versatile nature is how well it works with and complements other jewelry. They are perfect for wearing alone as a statement piece on the wrist, or they can be stacked alongside other bracelets to create a layered look that is a hot trend right now. 

A diamond tennis bracelet is also a wonderful pairing with a pair of diamond stud earrings (or any other diamond earring) and the most common item of diamond jewelry, the engagement ring. In truth, a diamond tennis bracelet makes a great ensemble with any piece of jewelry with an accent diamond.

And the last expression of its versatility is its price range. There is great accessibility to diamond tennis bracelets because they can be made of sterling silver with small diamonds at the lower price range or be amazing bits of bling with large diamonds at the high end. Plus, thanks to lab-grown diamonds, it is possible to enjoy larger-sized diamonds at a cheaper price than natural diamonds without any less sparkle and fire. (Lab-grown diamonds are 40 - 60% cheaper than mined diamond prices at the time of writing.)

They Carry A Symbolic Meaning

Along with being classically beautiful pieces of jewelry, something else that keeps tennis bracelets a favorite style is that they can also hold a symbolic meaning. 

In its classic form, yellow gold or white gold set with brilliant-cut diamonds is a symbol of love. You might think of it as the bracelet form of an eternity ring - that closed circle that is presented on a special anniversary in a relationship or as a renewed sign of commitment.

They don't always have to signify romantic love. diamond tennis bracelets make very special jewelry gifts for birthdays and special occasions such as graduation. 

They Have Durability And Quality

As well as their beauty, the jewelry industry is built on diamonds' strength and durability. These two qualities make them the perfect stone for everyday wear where you don't have to worry about damaging something due to a rigorous or active job or lifestyle.

You do have to watch out for loose clasps (Chris Evert note!) but a tennis bracelet can last a lifetime when treated with the proper care and attention. You will have to maintain and look after elements like the setting and link connections but the quality and diamond clarity will not degrade.  

Because of this durability and quality, it has become a trend for expensive tennis bracelets to be passed down among generations as precious family heirlooms that will be enjoyed for years and years to come.

They Hold Investment Value

You don't need to be a financial genius to recognize that diamonds are a valuable investment! Diamonds are always going to be in demand, so building a collection of diamond pieces serves two purposes, the first to give you a stunning array of accessories and second, to set you up for a great financial boost should you ever choose to put those accessories back on the market!
