The History Behind The Tennis Bracelet

The term "Tennis Bracelet" came into effect during the women's 1987 US Open. During the match, tennis champion Chris Evert asked officials to stop play after the strong rallying sent her diamond bracelet flying across the tennis court. Live viewers across the world watched the televised search for her expensive diamond bracelet.

This incident led the way to a whole new fashion trend in diamond tennis bracelets. Other players including Serena Williams, followed Chris Evert's fashion sense and began wearing diamond bracelets during matches.
