The Georgini Tennis Bracelets are some of our most popular pieces! It is a delicate bracelet that features a row of small, closely set stones that wrap perfectly around the wrist. It is an elegant and timeless piece of jewelry that has a fascinating history.
The name "tennis bracelet" originated from an incident that occurred during the 1987 U.S. Open tennis championship. Chris Evert, an American tennis player, was wearing a diamond bracelet during a match when the clasp broke and the bracelet fell off her wrist. She asked the officials to pause the match until she could find her bracelet, and from that moment on, the bracelet became known as the "tennis bracelet."
However, the style of bracelet that would become known as the tennis bracelet actually dates back much earlier. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, diamond line bracelets were popular among the wealthy elite. These bracelets featured a continuous row of diamonds or other gemstones set in a straight line. However, they were not called tennis bracelets at that time.
It wasn't until the 1980s that the tennis bracelet became popular among the general public. Thanks to widespread advertising campaigns and celebrity endorsements, the tennis bracelet became a must-have accessory for fashion-conscious women. Georgini, tennis bracelets are available in a variety of styles, and sizes, and they remain a popular choice for special occasions and everyday wear alike.
