Tennis bracelet admiration

P1300197

Talk about perfect timing … for sale by online auction days before Valentine’s Day — a gorgeous 14 K yellow and white gold lady’s diamond bracelet featuring 55 claw set round brilliant cut diamonds.

A gorgeous piece – perhaps someone was the lucky recipient on February 14th? “A tennis bracelet? Oh, you shouldn’t have.”

An interesting fact about tennis bracelets …

They got their name from an incident that arose during a US Open match in 1987, involving tennis star Chris Evert. While playing, her expensive bracelet featuring an inline string of individually-set diamonds fell off her wrist and she requested the game be stopped until the bracelet was located.

No, really – it’s true!

Since that day, these sparkly pieces of wrist jewellery have been referred to as tennis bracelets thanks to Ms. Evert, who also made a mark on the court as well, attracting all sorts of admirers …

Evert and Reynolds  yes, that’s Ms. Evert out on the town with actor Burt Reynolds
