What is a Diamond Tennis Bracelet?

A tennis bracelet is a flexible bracelet typically made of precious metals and a single row of diamonds. It’s a classic jewelry staple that makes the perfect gift for anyone who loves sparkle!


Where did the name Tennis Bracelet come from?

Tennis bracelets were originally called line bracelets and eternity bracelets because of their similarity to eternity rings. The name change occurred in 1987 because of tennis legend Chris Evert. It was during the 1987 U.S. Open when Evert misplaced her diamond bracelet. Frantic, she asked officials to stop the match to look for the missing bracelet. When reporters later inquired about what happened, Evert said she had dropped her “tennis bracelet.” This unforgettable incident drew public attention and because of Evert, the bracelet rose to a whole new level of popularity. Since then the diamond line/eternity bracelet has been renamed the tennis bracelet.
