Why are Eternity Bracelets called Tennis Bracelets

How The Tennis Bracelet Got Its Name

The "Tennis" Bracelet has been a popular style since the 1920s but it wasn't always called a Tennis Bracelet.  Back then, a never-ending, flexible circle bracelet of diamonds was most often referred to as an Eternity Bracelet.

The "Tennis Bracelet" label was the result of tennis star Chris Evert's diamond bracelet snapping during the 1987 U.S. Open Tennis Championships.

The game was stopped until the precious bracelet was found, a sensation was created and the name "Tennis Bracelet" stuck.

30 years later, your Giddy Aunts put their own spin on a tennis bracelet, using miniature tennis racquets and balls... but should you so desire, we have the other kind too!
