Durning the US Open of 1987, tennis star Chris Evert's jewelry malfunction changed the name of the classic eternity bracelet. Durning her match, she requested time during the game to search for her missing bracelet, which had flown off during the vigorous match. From then on out, the bracelet has become one of the most popular pieces of jewelry around the world and has since been called the "tennis bracelet".
Tennis bracelets are made to be very durable and flexible in order to be worn during every occasion- even durning tennis matches! Keep in mind that Chris's bracelet did not have a safety clasp. When purchasing a tennis bracelet in the future, Rothschild Diamonds suggests that it have a safety clasp to ensure a secure closure.
