The diamond tennis bracelet has actually been around for quite a long time. It was originally called an eternity bracelet because it was an endless circle of diamonds without beginning or end, but in the mid-80s, tennis star Chris Everett changed all that. During a tennis match, she stopped the play while she looked for her diamond bracelet, which had broken. Soon, everyone was calling the flexible bands of precious stones “tennis bracelets,” and they became so popular some jewelry stores couldn’t keep up with the demand. Since then, tennis bracelets have continued to be popular with the public. They are one of the most popular diamond and gemstone gifts given for a wide range of celebrations.
The Enduring Popularity and Versatility of the Diamond Tennis Bracelet
While some jewelry styles go through cycles, a gold tennis bracelet set with diamonds is always appropriate and always in style. It goes with everything in a woman’s wardrobe and can be worn every day. Worn by itself, it is the perfect accessory for the office, going shopping or simply relaxing with friends because it is simple but lovely. Pairing your diamond bracelet with a pair of simple stud earrings is a great way to accessorize a simple suit, jeans and a tee-shirt or even your tennis whites. In the evenings, a white gold diamond tennis bracelet has enough impact to hold its own when worn with an elaborate necklace and chandelier earrings. It can be the most versatile item in your jewelry wardrobe. It is this versatility and understated style that makes the diamond tennis bracelet so popular through the years. It simply never goes out of style.
A Variety of Options
While the most popular style of tennis diamond bracelet is the women’s white gold diamond bracelet, this is just one of many available metals and gemstones available. At SuperJeweler, we offer over a thousand variations on this versatile fashion accessory, so you can be sure you’ll find the perfect bracelet. We offer the traditional white gold tennis bracelet, but you can also get a rose gold diamond bracelet or a one made of yellow gold. For those who love sterling silver or who can’t wear gold, we also offer diamond tennis bracelets mounted in sterling silver.
A diamond tennis bracelet gives you a lot of bang for your buck. There is plenty of sparkle in a tennis bracelet because it is a continuous row of small diamonds, all shimmering off each other and capturing each other’s light. If you invest in a 1 carat diamond tennis bracelet, you’ll pay less than you would for a single, 1ct stone but get an entire wrist full of sparkle. SuperJeweler offers bracelets in a multitude of total carat weights, including 1ct, 2ct, 3ct, 4ct, 5ct, 6ct, 8ct, 9ct, 11ct and even 15ct. You’ll certainly be able to find the ideal size and diamond carat weight from our selection.
The Fit of Your Diamond Tennis Bracelet
The fit of a tennis bracelet is also crucial, which is why we offer our diamond tennis bracelets in more lengths than any other online retailer. You can order a tennis bracelet in 6 inch, 6.5 inch, 7 inch, 7.5 inch, 8 inch and 9 inch lengths. Because our tennis bracelets are flexible, you can order one that fits your wrist as though it were custom made. If you aren’t sure which size would work best, cut a length of ribbon or twine and wrap it around your wrist so that it can move slightly up your forearm, but can slide back down to your wrist when your arm is at your side. It should not be able to slip over your hand. If you can place one or two fingers between your wrist and the ribbon, that is the correct length. Measure the ribbon to see what size to order. A 7 inch bracelet is the most popular and will fit most women.
Celebrating with the Gift of Diamonds
Diamond tennis bracelets are always a wonderful gift idea for that special lady in your life, whether she’s your wife, girlfriend, mother or sister. Women of all ages appreciate the beauty and value of diamonds, and a tennis bracelet can be worn every day as a reminder of your love. What holidays are appropriate for giving someone you love a diamond tennis bracelet? The options are practically endless. Christmas, birthdays and Valentine’s Day are three holidays when women will be thrilled to receive a gold diamond tennis bracelet, but don’t stop with the traditional.
If your anniversary is approaching, a tennis bracelet will certainly get her heart racing. In recent years these have also become popular as push presents for new moms. After she’s worked so hard, doesn’t she deserve to have her wrist encircled with shimmer and shine? If you’re getting married, a diamond bracelet can be the perfect final touch to your bride’s wedding day glamour. And don’t forget your mom – she’s spent decades caring for you! Show her you appreciate all her sacrifices by giving her a bracelet she’ll love showing off to her friends. Of course, you don’t have to have an occasion to buy a diamond tennis bracelet. Consider getting one for yourself to celebrate anything from that promotion you just got to it being a Tuesday.
Choosing the Right Style
The first thing that comes to mind when most people think of a tennis bracelet is a single strand of diamonds in a gold setting. While this is certainly the style that is most popular, there are nearly infinite varieties available. If you want to give someone the gift of a diamond tennis bracelet, consider her personal style carefully before making the purchase. You want to choose something she’ll really love. If you choose wisely, she’ll pull out your gift to wear with lots of outfits and on almost any occasion.
Is She a Trendsetter?
For the woman who is always the first to wear what’s seen on the fashion runways or trending on the Internet, consider unusual styles like a black diamond bracelet. It’s a bit edgier than traditional diamonds and black is always elegant. You might also want to take a look at a double or triple strand bracelet that mimics the recent trend in stacked bracelets.
Is She a Hopeless Romantic?
If she swoons over gestures like a single red rose, she cries every time she watches “Titanic,” and her favorite songs are ballads, she’s a true romantic. She’ll love the romance of diamonds or her birthstone set in a tennis bracelet, particularly if it is a rose gold diamond tennis bracelet. The warm, blush color of rose gold is totally romantic and the color is so flattering to the skin. She’ll look lovely wearing a rose gold tennis bracelet and think of you every time she slips it on.
You may also want to look at our selection of tennis bracelets with heart-shaped links. After all, there’s nothing more romantic than heart-shaped jewelry, unless it’s heart-shaped jewelry set with precious stones. Our X’s and O’s style diamond tennis bracelet is also very romantic, symbolizing the hugs and kisses you want to give her every day.
Is She Bold and Quirky?
Perhaps she’s one of those true individuals who walks her own path, always surprising you in unexpected ways. You’ll want to give her a tennis bracelet that’s out of the ordinary. A black diamond tennis bracelet is one option, particularly if she’s a bit Goth, but SuperJeweler has hundreds of styles and gemstones to choose from for your one-of-a-kind lady, including brown diamonds and mixed gemstones. A bold, triple strand diamond tennis bracelet will coordinate seamlessly with oversized earrings and bold necklaces. We even offer a six-strand option if you want to really “Wow!” her.
Does She Love All Things Vintage?
If she haunts vintage shops looking for that perfect dress from her grandmother’s era and loves reading novels set in the past, a vintage style diamond tennis bracelet will appeal to her. Look for bracelets with rich details like a chevron pattern set with diamonds and bracelets inspired by Art Deco or Victorian originals. Antique reproduction and vintage style tennis bracelets capture the glamour of the past. Links in unusual shapes and elaborate patterns will evoke a bygone era in a gift that’s perfect for today. Lots of sparkle and intricate details are key in vintage style diamond tennis bracelets.
Does She Love Classic Fashions?
If she wears a classic strand of pearls when dressed up, has a wardrobe of beautiful staples like silk blouses, cashmere sweaters and tailored trousers, she’s a fan of classic fashion. Give her the classic look of a traditional, white gold diamond tennis bracelet set with brilliant-cut diamonds. It’s jewelry that will never go out of style, never look dated and will go with everything in her wardrobe. Because you’re keeping it simple, invest in a bracelet with enough total carat weight for real impact. We suggest three carats or more for classic elegance that can’t be overlooked.
Gemstone Tennis Bracelet Options
While the diamond tennis bracelet is the most popular style, SuperJeweler has an impressive selection of gemstone tennis bracelets as well. You can also opt for the unexpected drama of a black diamond bracelet if you like the classic style of a tennis bracelet but want something in an unexpected color. A black diamond tennis bracelet is the ultimate “little black dress” of jewelry.
If you are looking for something unusual, consider a bracelet made of precious gems such as sapphires, rubies or emeralds. For September birthdays, a sapphire tennis bracelet made entirely or these dark blue gems is a lovely gift, or alternate sapphires with diamonds for a lighter look. You don’t have to limit yourself to choosing birthstones, however. If you have a particular outfit you want to accessorize, by all means select a diamond tennis bracelet that includes stones in a matching color. Wearing an ice blue gown to a special occasion? A gemstone tennis bracelet set with aquamarines will be a stunning accent to your dress.
On a romantic holiday like Valentine’s Day, a ruby bracelet is a gorgeous way to declare your love. We have options with combining rubies with diamonds in several styles as well as solid ruby tennis bracelets. No matter what birthstone you’re looking for, we have your tennis bracelet. Our emerald tennis bracelet comes in several styles, including ones with alternating diamonds and emeralds, solid gemstone and those set in yellow gold, white gold and even rose gold.
Push gifts to new moms are becoming increasingly popular and a gemstone and diamond tennis bracelet is a thoughtful gift that will be treasured for years. Give the new mother a bracelet set with the new arrival’s birthstone for a truly meaningful keepsake she’ll wear with pride. The beauty of this gift is that you can give her a new bracelet with the birth of each child. She can mix and match them to wear countless color combinations stacked on her wrist over the years.
The Fashion-Forward Choice for 2019 is the Diamond Tennis Bracelet
In 2019, diamond tennis bracelets are appearing on wrists everywhere as a stylish accessory. While women are wearing them for everyday in single strands, double strands and even triple strand bracelets have also been spotted on fashion runways. Stacking – whether bracelets or necklaces – is also a big trend for 2019 and tennis bracelets lend themselves to stacking because of their comfortable fit and availability in numerous sizes, styles and colors. Try stacking a few with different size stones for a look that’s not too “matchy-matchy,” or stack two or three in different gemstone combinations for a great pop of color on your wrist.
