Why Are They Called 'Tennis Bracelets' Anyway?
It's a funny story. Originally tennis bracelets were described as line bracelets because they are a single line of gems on a thin chain made of precious metals such as silver or white gold. However, at the 1987 US Open, a superstar tennis player named Chris Evert lost her line bracelet on the court. She was known for her excellent fashion style, and her diamond line bracelet was her signature piece. Officials actually allowed her to pause the match to find her bracelet while the world watched.
Ever since then, the line bracelet has been known as a 'tennis bracelet' in honor of her dedication to fashion in every situation. And you can do the same! Tennis bracelets can be worn in almost any situation, formal or informal - or even while playing tennis.
How To Size A Tennis Bracelet
If you're thinking of buying a moissanite tennis bracelet for a loved one, sizing matters - but not as much as with some other types of jewelry. Being a bracelet, it doesn't need to fit perfectly.
The simplest way to size a tennis bracelet is to wrap a string or ribbon around the recipient's wrist, measure the result, and then add one inch so it isn't too tight. If can't easily measure their wrist without revealing the secret of your gift, use 7-7.5 inches as your starting point. This is the most common size for women's tennis bracelets. Then estimate up or down if their wrist is larger or smaller than average.
When in doubt, go larger rather than smaller. Too-big tennis bracelets can be shortened to improve the fit if needed.
