How to Buy a Diamond Tennis Bracelet
WHY IS IT CALLED A TENNIS BRACELET?
According to some critics, the bracelet got its name simply because wearing diamonds while playing tennis was so unheard of, so that when Chris Evert began to wear her diamond bracelet the name tennis bracelet was given to the accessory. And considering how famous and well-known she was in the game of tennis, the name stuck.
What is a Tennis Bracelet?
A Tennis Bracelet is a bracelet containing many small Birthstone gems, usually diamonds or sapphires, linked together in a narrow chain. Tennis bracelets are delicate, classy bracelets with a symmetric pattern of diamonds. They are also simply known as diamond bracelets. Traditionally, it was a gold bracelet fully set with connected diamonds.

Tennis Bracelets Styles and Settings
Styles of tennis bracelets vary. While most designs contain one row or loop of diamonds, some bracelets have two or even three rows of stones. Most tennis bracelets utilize round cut diamonds, although some styles incorporate style like this 14K White Gold tennis bracelet.
Settings are usually one of three varieties: prong, channel or bezel. Each style securely holds the diamond and offers a unique look. Just like with metals, there’s no “best” bracelet design — instead, the design you choose should be based on personal preference.
