Frequently Asked Questions about Tennis Necklaces
A tennis necklace is a classic piece of jewellery characterised by a continuous string of individually set diamonds or gemstones, typically in a single row. It is known for its elegant and timeless design, often featuring a line of closely spaced stones that create a seamless and dazzling effect.
The term "tennis necklace" gained popularity in the late 1980s when professional tennis player Chris Evert lost her diamond bracelet during a match at the U.S. Open. She requested to halt the game until the bracelet was found, bringing attention to the delicate and shimmering jewellery. Since then, similar necklaces with a continuous row of stones became known as tennis necklaces.
Diamonds are the most popular choice for tennis necklaces due to their brilliance and durability. However, other gemstones like sapphires, emeralds, and rubies are also used to add colour and variety to the design.
Consider factors such as budget, personal style, and the occasion for which you plan to wear the necklace. Select your metal preference: white gold, yellow gold, or platinum and the size and quality of the stones.
