How Did The Iconic Tennis Bracelet Get Its Name?

Gold and silver tennis bracelet | Wanderlust + Co

Have you ever wondered why a bracelet with a row of diamantes is called “tennis” and does it have anything to do with the sport?

 This style of bracelet became notable way back in the 1920s and was known as the ‘diamond line bracelet’. Tennis bracelet however got its iconic name because of champion tennis player, Chris Evert. The momentous event occurred during the 1978 U.S. Open Tennis Championships, where she lost her diamond bracelet in the middle of the match and halted the game so she could search for her missing bracelet. Fortunately, she was able to recover her lucky charm and the rest was history.

Chris Evert has too been widely known to have an impeccable taste in jewelry styling as she was always seen with timeless fine gems on the court - talk about jewels to live in. The tennis of today has expanded to a variety of styles and brands from fine to affordable which makes this timeless style so accessible to everyone.
