The Diamond Tennis Bracelet
In 1987, tennis player Chris Evert's diamond bracelet fell off and she refused to play until it had been recovered. Since that day, the style of small diamonds in a long row has gone by the name "tennis bracelet." This design is also commonly referred to as a diamond infinity bracelet or inline bracelet. It is one of the most popular forms of diamond bracelets sold today due to its versatile nature and elegant appearance. Diamond tennis bracelets are lightweight, flexible, and strong; they can be worn both on the tennis court and to an evening soiree.
Metals in Every Hue
Diamond bracelets are made with your personal style in mind; you can find them in any type of metal to suit your preferences. Choose yellow gold for a bright, classy look to complement tan skin and warm undertones. Rose gold will add warmth and color to any outfit. White gold diamond bracelets are sleek and cooling, perfect for those who want to sharpen their image. Platinum is the most sturdy of the metals and when paired with diamonds will create a bracelet as durable as it is gorgeous. Mixed metals are fun for everyone and are available in a variety of combinations.
Why Choose Diamonds?
Diamonds are the hardest, strongest, and most permanent material known to man; this makes them the ideal choice for any piece of jewelry, but it makes them particularly valuable in diamond bracelets. Inevitably bumped and scratched due to their proximity to the hand, a diamond won’t scuff and chip like other colored gemstones. It's at a far smaller risk of being damaged by environmental concerns, unlike pearl bracelets or colored gemstone bracelets. Diamond bangles and tennis bracelets are therefore the perfect choice for both daily wear and special events due to their durable nature and stunning appearance.
Choosing a Clasp
An important aspect of choosing the perfect diamond bracelet also involves selecting a fastening style. There are several different fasteners, each with their own benefits. Lobster clasps and spring rings provide the most security, while magnetic closures are the easiest to affix around the wrist. S-hooks and toggle clasps are endlessly customizable; pearl and box clasps offer a vintage effect while staying securely fastened.
