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 in 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 style has been famously spotted on the late Princess Diana, Sarah Jessica Parker and Victoria Beckham, to name a few.
Tennis star Emma Raducanu completed her Dior ensemble during the premiere of No Time To Die film in London recently with a subtle tennis bracelet and earrings from Tiffany & Co.
Now, the ’90s has called and this time, tennis bracelets are making a comeback – as spotted on the wrists of stars like Billie Eilish at the Met Gala (below) and tennis pro Emma Raducanu (above) on the red carpet recently.
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.
