Ever wondered why a tennis bracelet is named after a sport? It’s because, during the 1987 US Open, a professional tennis player lost her diamond bracelet during a match, and play had to be stopped in front of many TV viewers and spectators. The bracelet was found, and the term ‘tennis bracelet’ stuck.
Tennis bracelets are made up of a symmetrical pattern of diamonds or gemstones, which are often all the same size, shape, colour and clarity. This tennis bracelet with 1.5ct of diamonds in 9ct white gold is a breathtakingly beautiful example, as are all of the unique, high quality tennis bracelets in the Bevilles collection. Find out why bracelets make such great gifts here.
As with any jewellery, it’s important you clean your diamond bracelets from time to time to ensure they stay at their radiant best. To do this, mix together lukewarm water and mild soap; there’s no need for harsh detergents or chemical products. Soak your diamond bracelet for 30 minutes then gently rub it with a soft cloth to remove dirt.
As with all of your treasured jewellery pieces, storing your diamond bracelets correctly will also help preserve them. A jewellery box is a great, all-in-one solution for storing your bracelets, earrings, necklaces, rings, and much more.
How you open your diamond bracelets depends on the clasp. Some are hinged, and require you to push down on one side to open them up. Others require you to squeeze the mechanism to unlock the clasp. Bolo bracelets have an adjustable sliding mechanism that allows you to easily customise the fit.
No matter which clasp your diamond bracelet comes with, you can rest assured that all Bevilles bracelets feature easy-to-use clasps.
