Tennis Bracelets are a common and stunning statement piece to wear to an occasion such as Wimbledon. Their history is said to trace back to a US Open Match in 1978 when famous tennis player Chris Evert's diamond bracelet broke and fell off of her wrist. This prompted her to stop the match temporarily to go search for her precious bracelet until it was found. After all, diamonds are a girls best friend right..?

History of Diamonds 

 

 

Humans first discovered diamonds in mines throughout India over 4,000 years ago. Although, they were formed in the earth's mantle, and were pushed up to the surface by volcano eruptions. Diamonds were popular in trading throughout Europe and China which were then given to royalty, giving them the symbolization of power. They can also symbolize love from their centuries of involvement in engagement and wedding rings to symbolize love and commitment.
