It’s hard to keep up with all the jewelry trends that come and go so quickly, but the tennis bracelet is a piece that is both classic and glamorous. It continues to pop up on the fashion radar and adorns the arm of major movie stars and musicians from Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johanson to Katy Perry and Gwen Stefani. The tennis bracelet is timeless and versatile, and here, we’ll give you some tips to keep the look modern and choose the best bracelet for your style and budget.
The beautiful thing about tennis bracelets is that diamonds adorn the bracelet from all angles, creating a symmetrical and eye-catching piece that adds elegance and sparkle. If you can’t afford to invest in real diamonds, there are some great CZ alternatives which offer as much shine as the real thing. Consider what size stones would best suit your look and what color you’d be able to wear with the pieces of your wardrobe. The cut is the most important element to this polished piece. Consider princess, round or baguette cut. Don’t rule out the more modern youthful takes on tennis bracelets, which include trillion (triangular) cut stones or even star shaped settings.
Your tennis bracelet should fit a little loose, giving you about one finger of room between your wrist and the bracelet. How you wear it is up to you. The versatility of this piece means that it could easily be an everyday accessory, just like a watch. However, for those of us that prefer to save our glam for the nighttime, this bracelet is a fun accessory for special events and nights out. The leading ladies of Hollywood often choose to wear tennis bracelets as a single accessory to adorn a sparkly floor length gown. This year, it’s all about layering. Don’t be afraid to wear multiple tennis bracelets to create an eye-catching look.
