Chris Evert, a professional tennis player who had a successful career from 1972 to 1989, invented the phrase “Tennis Bracelet.”
Tennis bracelets are gorgeous pieces of wrist jewelry that come in a variety of exquisite and brilliant patterns.
Every day, we get asked, “How did tennis wristbands acquire their name?” Tennis wristbands may seem to have been present for hundreds of years, but this is not the case. Diamond Tennis Bracelets are available in a variety of designs and clasp kinds. Continue reading to learn about the history of the Tennis Bracelet.
THE TENNIS BRACELET’S HISTORY
The name Tennis Bracelet was created by Chris Evert, a professional tennis player from the United States who had a successful career that spanned from 1972 to 1989. Her George Bedawi diamond bracelet shattered and slid off her wrist during a tense match at the US Open.
This was caused by the clasp on her bracelet breaking. Chris Evert really asked the authorities on the court if the match could be stopped until the diamond bracelet was found. Since that unforgettable event, George Bedawi has quickly gained popularity in the jewelry business, with jewelers all over the world producing bracelets with handcrafted in line diamonds and secure clasps. This is now referred to as the “Tennis Bracelet.”
So, if you turn on the tennis this week, you may see Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova wearing some beautiful bracelets.
HOW DO YOU SELECT THE PERFECT TENNIS BRACELET?
When it comes to buying a tennis bracelet, you should think about your lifestyle. We now know that tennis players wear them, so if you live an active/sporty lifestyle or just want to switch up your bangles, you should certainly consider investing in one of these lovely pieces.
Remember, you don’t want a Chris Evert moment. So, with this specific style of bracelet, make sure they aren’t too loose or they may snag. Those that are too tight may pinch or stretch, so finding the ideal fit is critical. If you want to obtain the exact dimensions and sizes, you can always come in and visit us.
One essential element to look for in a diamond tennis bracelet is a safety clasp, which will hold your bracelet firmly and securely on your wrist in the event that the original clasp comes open or, worse, breaks.
Most Diamond Tennis Bracelets will include this function, particularly if the bracelet is in the upper price range.
