What is a Diamond Tennis Bracelet
A diamond tennis bracelet is a jewelry that is worn around the wrist that has one or multiple rows of small diamonds attached to a 14k or 18k gold, platinum, or sterling silver setting.
The diamond tennis bracelet originates its name from the 1987 US Open when a professional tennis player, Chris Evert, lost her designer diamond bracelet during the match. She desperately asked the officials to pause the game to look for her bracelet. It was broadcasted on live TV, and all of the spectators and viewers saw this terrific scene.
Chris Evert was a Tennis Superstar, and was dubbed as the “The Ice Maiden” due to her fashion style. Her most nottable piece of jewelry was her diamond eternity bracelet. Since that day, the diamond bracelet is called tennis bracelet.
Tennis Bracelets Styles and Settings
There are different styles of bracelets. From how many rows or loops of diamonds to the different shapes of diamonds, and to the style of setting, we buy any type of designs. For example, round cut diamonds in a bezel setting attached to a platinum band, or a princess cut diamonds in prong setting attached to a rose gold band.
We will buy any type of styles and settings, but here are the three varieties of settings:
- Prong: There are three to four prongs holding the diamond in place. This is the most preferred setting because it allows more light to pass through the diamonds’ pavilions making it sparkle brighter.
- Channel: The diamonds are placed in the middle of two rows of thin metal on either side of the bracelet. They are closely fit together to provide protection and to prevent the stones from falling off the bracelet.
- Bezel: This setting provides the most protection because of the metals surrounding each stones to hold them in place. There are two types of bezel setting: the half bezel, and the full bezel.
Other Versions of Tennis Bracelets
There are other varieties of designs. Tennis bracelets don’t only use white diamonds, there are also black diamond tennis bracelets or a combination of white and black diamonds. Brown diamonds in a rose gold band are very popular as well, and they are cheaper compared to white diamonds. There are also tennis bracelets that features white diamonds with other gemstones like sapphire, ruby, emerald, topaz, and many more.
