Today, tennis bracelets are still one of the most essential pieces of jewelry, and a staple in a woman's jewelry wardrobe. Tennis bracelets are designed in 14k gold, 18k gold or platinum, and are characterized by diamonds traveling entirely around the bracelet. Classic diamond tennis bracelets have round brilliant diamonds of the same size traveling around the bracelet. Our classic tennis bracelets appear within the Moyer Collection and Rahaminov Diamonds. Today, designers have experimented with incorporating different diamond shapes or gemstones into tennis bracelets. We love styles that include oval shape diamonds, emerald cut diamonds or even rainbow colored gemstones like the options below from Eriness.
Named the "tennis bracelet" after iconic tennis player, Chris Evert started wearing one of these loose fitting diamond bracelets during her matches. It wasn't until her appearance in the U.S. Open in 1978, that the term really took off. During the match, her bracelet fell off (they actually stopped play to look for it) which made this style take off.
There are two ways to wear a stunning tennis bracelet. You can wear it alone, letting it command all of the attention, or you can opt to layer it with other pieces of jewelry. We love to mix our diamond bangles or gemstone bangles with these bracelets. To explore our entire selection of tennis bracelets, visit our Carmel, Indiana showroom, and try them on in-person!
