Why tennis bracelets are the must-have accessory of 2020
Although diamond tennis bracelets have been around for years, they have emerged as Sydney’s latest jewellery trend for 2020. Simple and timeless in their design, the term ‘tennis bracelet’ was coined by professional tennis player Chris Evert in the 1980s, who stopped a match to look for her diamond bracelet that had fallen off her wrist.Traditionally perceived as a piece only for formal occasions, tennis bracelets have now become the latest casual accessory that Sydneysiders are wearing on a daily basis. There is no better time to invest in a classic piece that will never lose its lustre or style. You may even own one already! Perhaps your grandmother gifted you one for your 21st birthday, which at the time you cringed at for being “too old fashioned”.
How to style a tennis bracelet?
With the right styling of a tennis bracelet, it can be worn on almost any occasion, from a formal event, to Sunday brunch with your friends. Although there are no strict rules for how to wear a tennis bracelet, most people wear them on their left hand which makes for a chic and effortless look.
For those who want a little extra bling, tennis bracelets can be stacked and layered with a watch or other bracelets. Their sleek design means that it is sure to match with all colours and metals. A recent trend has been wearing tennis bracelets as an everyday piece with a casual outfit or sportswear. We suggest pairing your bracelet with a plain white t-shirt, fresh sneakers and your favourite blue jeans.
For more formal occasions or even brides, a tennis bracelet is a great option as it is unlikely to clash with your outfit. Unlike your dress and veil, jewellery that is purchased for your wedding can be worn for the rest of your life and even passed down to your children and grandchildren.
How to care for your tennis bracelet?
To prevent any build up on your bracelet, we always recommend that you refrain from wearing your bracelet when cleaning, showering, applying moisturiser or makeup. We also offer a free cleaning service where you can drop into our boutique at any time for a quick clean.
