In the early 1970s, tennis champion Chris Evert lost her bracelet when the clasp snapped during a heated match. She then insisted that they stop the match until her George Bedewi design was found. Thus, the term "diamond tennis bracelet" was coined. When the media picked up on the event, the diamond tennis bracelet became an overnight success phenomenon.
Since then, tennis bracelets have remained the same basic bangle style, however nowadays several types of stone or cubic zirconia are used in the design as well as many different metal types. So, enjoy "sporting" your tennis bracelet during your next tennis match this spring.
