It’s not hard to guess where the tennis bracelet got its name. In case you’re still wondering, the answer is tennis court. Apparently, American tennis player Chris Evert’s eternity bracelet suddenly broke during a US Open match in 1978, causing a brief interruption. Chris later explained to an interviewer at a post-match interview that it was her “tennis bracelet” that paused the game.
Since then, the tennis bracelet has adorned some of the world’s most stylish females’ wrists. Over the decades — such as in the ’90s — the tennis bracelet has been famously spotted on the late Princess Diana, Sarah Jessica Parker and Victoria Beckham, to name a few.
Now, the ’90s has called and this time, tennis bracelets are making a comeback. And we’ll admit it: We’re loving it! Encrusted with dazzling diamonds, this stylish accessory possesses a graceful and glamorous appeal. Also, tennis bracelets often sport a timeless design, making them the fit for dressing up any outfit — whether it’s for work or play.
