Tennis Bracelets

The tennis bracelet was born in an indelible moment during the 1987 U.S. Open. In the middle of a match, player Chris Evert asked officials to halt play so she could search for her expensive bracelet after the clasp snapped open. She wore an eternity bracelet with an inline string of individually set, sparking diamonds designed by George Bedewi.

Though Evert was not the first to wear this style of bracelet, her accident on the court sparked interest among fans and greatly increased the demand and popularity for this piece of jewelry. The tennis bracelet, or diamond line bracelet, is most known for it’s slim, simple, and elegant style, making it a luxury piece suitable for everyday or active wear.

The classic style is defined by a row of symmetrical diamonds set in individual four-prong settings made from high-quality metal such as gold or platinum. However, they are now available in many different styles with variations in diamond sizes, gemstones, metal design, and type of metal. Most bracelets have clasps to secure the bracelet and avoid Chris Evert's mishap, but some bracelets are designed without to simply slide over one’s wrist.


Quick Facts

  • The tennis bracelet's design closely resembles that of the eternity ring. It was formerly known as the eternity bracelet
  • Other tennis players like Serena Williams and Gabriela Sabatini became influenced by the trend Evert set
  • Instead of diamonds, cubic zirconium is sometimes used in tennis bracelets as a more affordable option
