Where to buy a tennis bracelet in Sydney
You’d be forgiven if they aren’t already on your wish-list...but tennis bracelets are a must-have for any jewellery lover. A timeless classic, tennis bracelets are made up of small diamonds, set in either a prong or bezel, joined to the other by a fine and flexible chain. Once perceived as a sentimental item, only worn on special occasions, tennis bracelets have become a staple and everyday accessory.
How did the tennis bracelet get its name?This iconic piece of jewellery was first crowned in 1987 by professional tennis player Chris Evert, who paused her tennis match as her diamond bracelet had fallen off. As soon as she realised the clasp had broken, Evert asked the officials to stop the match until the bracelet was found. Although diamond line bracelets have been around since the 1920s, this memorable moment became iconic within the jewellery industry and instantly spiked demand for this particular style of bracelet.
Can you wear a tennis bracelet everyday?
Due to their relaxed style, tennis bracelets are a fresh look that look fabulous layered with other bracelets or your favourite watch. Our classic 3-prong and 4-prong tennis bracelets pair well with any outfit, from jeans and a simple t-shirt to your favourite cocktail dress. As a one of a kind piece, tennis bracelets are the quintessential casual-luxe accessory that can be worn for the rest of your life and passed down to generations. For a more delicate look, check out our Petite Diamond Tennis Bracelet. This style is an ideal entry point into fine diamond jewellery, yet still has that sparkling wow factor.
Diamond tennis bracelets can be made from 18ct white gold, yellow gold, rose gold or platinum. However, for everyday wear, a platinum setting is strongly recommended due to its durability and scratch-resistance, as opposed to gold, a much softer metal. This is particularly important if you are planning to wear your tennis bracelet with a watch.
Can I design my own tennis bracelet?
Whilst traditional tennis bracelets consist of round cut diamonds in a claw/prong or bezel setting, there are modern designs that incorporate different diamond cuts, colours and sizes. Apart from the traditional row of diamonds, tennis bracelets can also incorporate precious gemstones such as rubies, sapphires and mulit-coloured diamonds. For something a little bit different, diamond tennis bracelets set with pear, princess, emerald and oval cut diamonds place a modern twist on a timeless jewellery item.
Another popular style in recent years, has been tennis bracelets that feature irregularly cut diamonds. Our Hybrid Tennis Bracelet includes a delicate mix of pear, marquise, princess and oval cut diamonds. This unique and exquisite piece is one of our signature styles, designed in-house by our head jewellery designer Levon.
