Tennis Bracelets: A Classic Design with a Timeless Elegance

Tennis Bracelets: A Classic Design with a Timeless Elegance

Posted in: General

Tennis bracelets are typically made with a single row of round or square (radiant or princess cut) diamonds that are of the same quality and size, with each stone set in a continuous gold or platinum chain.

In the world of jewellery, there are timeless pieces that transcend trends and become enduring symbols of elegance and sophistication—the tennis bracelet is one such piece that has stood the test of time and continues to capture the hearts of jewellery enthusiasts.

Tennis bracelets are a classic and versatile piece of jewellery that has been popular for decades and can be worn on many different occasions. They are named as such because they were often worn by professional tennis players, such as Chris Evert, who famously stopped her 1987 US Open match to retrieve her lost diamond bracelet.

Tennis bracelets are typically made with a single row of diamonds set in white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, or platinum, and each stone is set in a continuous chain to create a seamless flow of sparkle around the wrist.

The setting of the stones is vital to the bracelet's overall aesthetic and durability. Prong, bezel, or channel setting styles are commonly used to secure the diamonds.

The diamonds used in tennis bracelets are usually round or square (radiant or princess cut diamonds) and are ideally all of the same size and quality. Although tennis bracelets are most commonly set with diamonds, they can also be made with other gemstones, such as sapphires, rubies, or emeralds, to add a burst of colour to the classic design.
