Tennis bracelet: the exclusivity of a classic jewel
One of the fine jewels that should not be missing from a woman's jewelry case, the tennis bracelet certainly fits in this category and has become an icon in the history of jewelry. The tennis bracelet is a timeless jewel, elegant and versatile; it is the historic rivière bracelet, a simple yet refined row of identical diamonds, set one after the other in a flexible setting, following each other without a start or finish, to symbolize eternal love.
Maybe not everyone knows that the tennis bracelet was accidentally given this name after the famous American tennis athlete Chris Evert, who in 1987 interrupted a game at the American Open championship because she had lost one of her diamond bracelets. At the press conference that followed, she explained the interruption had been inevitable because she never lost sight of her "tennis bracelet", unconsciously renaming one of the must-haves of contemporary jewelry. Since then, the classic diamond bracelet is known to one and all as the tennis bracelet.
From 1987 to date, colours and shapes have been added, and the design and materials embellished. The tennis bracelets proposed by Damiani, in particular, are included in some of the jewelers' classic collections in white gold and diamonds, featuring both classical and modern lines created to highlight the precious gems and enhance their brightness to the highest level. The range of Damiani tennis bracelets is completed by the black diamonds edition: a new jewel created for men but chosen by women who prefer a more aggressive style.
The tennis bracelet is the perfect day and evening jewel that adapts just as easily to elegant evening attire as to everyday outfits. With its simplicity but highly sophisticated craftsmanship this classic piece of jewelry is still an undisputed champion of charm and elegance.
