The history behind the Tennis Bracelet

While the action is underway at Wimbledon this year, we look back at where the diamond eternity bracelet became the Tennis Bracelet.

In the 1987 U.S. Open, tennis star Chris Evert was playing a match. In the middle of the game, she asked the officials to stop the game because her diamond bracelet had come undone and fallen on the court. She asked for time to search for and retrieve her bracelet. Since that time, the bracelet has been referred to as a "tennis bracelet."


The style of a tennis bracelet makes it ideal for sporty women whose active lifestyle doesn't lend itself to the wearing of bangles or heavy jewelry. The bracelet is lightweight and flexible, making it less likely to get damaged when playing a sport such as tennis.
