Tennis bracelets are diamond bracelets that are elegant and thin jewelry pieces worn on the wrist. The diamonds are set in a symmetrical design and that gives an elegant look to these bracelets.
There is an interesting story about how these bracelets came to be called tennis bracelets. I am looking for my share of glory in reciting this incident to you. Tennis star Chris Evert was famous for wearing her diamond line bracelets while playing. During the 1987 US Open, she lost her bracelet and the game had to be stopped for a while, because she had to search for her bracelet. This is how the diamond line bracelets started being called as the ‘tennis bracelets’. Serena Williams is said to have followed in her footsteps and wore one too for the US Open, but was smart enough to ensure that the one she picked up had an extra security clasp and clung tightly to her wrist, so that nothing goes wrong when she is playing.
Tennis bracelets are studded with different types of diamonds similar in shape and size in a single line. These diamonds are divided with a gold line between the diamonds. These tennis bracelets look glamorous and luxurious, yet simple.
Tennis bracelets are on the expensive side and start at around a thousand dollars. This is only the starting price and they can go up to thousands of dollars, depending on the metal used and the carat weight of the diamonds.
Other metals like platinum are being used in the making of tennis bracelets instead of white gold. Platinum tennis bracelets are very much in vogue now and people who wish to have the best and can afford the cost, go in for platinum bracelets because it is the most expensive metal and looks classy and spells class.
There are several designs and styles in tennis bracelets. There are plain tennis bracelets that are simple. The new trend is tennis bracelets using colored diamonds. These look elegant and colorful. The various colors of the diamonds in a thin line adds beauty to the tennis bracelet.
A tennis bracelet is the most glamorous piece of jewelry to own and will enhance a woman’s jewelry collection. Being simple and delicate, they match perfectly with any outfit. They can be worn at any time of the day or night and look equally elegant at all times.
