A tennis bracelet is a piece of jewelry typically consisting of a row of diamonds or other precious stones set in gold or platinum. The name "tennis bracelet" comes from the story of tennis champion Chris Evert, who lost her diamond bracelet during a tennis match. The incident caused such a commotion that the match had to be halted so that she could find her bracelet.
Today, tennis bracelets are often given as gifts to mark special occasions such as anniversaries or graduations. They are also popular fashion accessories and are often seen on the red carpets of Hollywood award ceremonies. Unlike other jewelry pieces, like diamond rings, tennis bracelets do not signify a specific meaning. This means you can assign your own meaning to them if you buy one as a gift.
