Why is it Called a “Tennis Bracelet?”
Tennis bracelet earned its name in 1987 at the U.S. Open. Chris Evert, a world-famous tennis champion, was playing a long back-and-forth rally during the match when the clasp of her diamond bracelet suddenly snapped. She requested the officials to halt the game and continued the game after she recovered her bracelet. This incident caused a lot of people to inquire about “tennis bracelets” at jewelry stores and sparked their popularity worldwide. Many tennis players and other celebrities still wear this simple, delicate bracelet style today.
Different Types of Settings
These classic style bracelets are available in three different types of settings. Each setting offers a slightly different overall look and feel as it changes the way how the stone is held. The main types of settings are:
Prong: In this setting, 3 or 4 prongs are used to hold the gemstone. A popular choice to secure the gem and allows maximum light to pass through the gemstone.
Channel: In this type of setting, the gemstones are encrusted in a channel on the metal, and they are fit tightly together to avoid scratching each other.
Bezel: In this setting, a layer of metal surrounds every gemstone of the tennis bracelet.
