Heidi Kjeldsen Exquisite Diamond 5.00cts 18ct White Gold Tennis Bracelet Chris Evert story

In 1987 the Ladies’ Tennis Champion Chris Evert lost her Diamond bracelet which she was sporting during the US Open. The match was postponed until she found her valuable bracelet, a flexible band of Diamonds and Gold. The ordeal sparked an almost immediate craze for these elegant items of jewellery, referred to affectionately as ‘tennis bracelets’. Chris Evert may not have been the first to wear such a piece but unknowingly from that time onwards she gave rise to their popularity.

Given their elegance and value ‘tennis bracelets’ are not suitable jewellery to wear during a sporting event, as highlighted by the story. Instead consider giving a Diamond tennis bracelet made from Platinum or 18 carat Gold as a classic holiday gift for your girlfriend, fiancée or wife. Anniversaries or birthdays could call for such an elegant gift…so long as it is not lost on court!
