Why they call it a “Tennis Bracelet”

chris-evert-tennis-bracelet“The in-line thin diamond bracelet that features a symmetrical pattern of diamonds is called a tennis bracelet.”

Do you know how the “Tennis Bracelet ” got its name? – In 1987 Chris Evert, the former World No. 1 woman tennis player was playing in the U.S. Open, when her diamond bracelet broke. She was wearing an elegant, light in-line diamond bracelet, and the match was interrupted to allow Chris to recover her precious diamonds which were scattered all over the court. After the ‘tennis bracelet’ incident, the diamond bracelet got a new name, as well as adding a new clasp to keep it more secure. It also started a huge jewelry trend. Before this happened, it was just called a “diamond bracelet.”
