Tennis bracelets are always in style, and their investment allure lies in this enduring appeal. Unlike trend-driven jewelry pieces, tennis bracelets possess a timeless charm that transcends the whims of fashion cycles. This quality not only assures their style relevance over time but also suggests a potential for value appreciation, making them a savvy choice  beyond the immediate aesthetic delight. 

Origin and Evolution of Tennis Bracelets

The tennis bracelet has an intriguing story that intertwines with the world of sports. Its popular name was coined during the 1987 US Open when tennis legend Chris Evert's elegant diamond bracelet broke and scattered on the court. This incident paused the game and marked the birth of the 'tennis bracelet', a term that would resonate in the fashion world for decades to come. Since then, this piece has evolved from its athletic association to become a mainstay in the realm of fine jewelry, admired for its sophistication and refined simplicity.

At its core, the tennis bracelet is defined by its symmetrical array of diamonds set in a slender, flexible chain. Traditionally crafted in precious metals like gold or platinum, this bracelet's design has gracefully evolved to include a variety of diamond cuts and settings. This has opened up a world of styles - from classic elegance to contemporary chic, catering to diverse fashion sensibilities.

More Than Just Jewelry

Heirloom Potential

Beyond their beauty today, tennis bracelets are imbued with the potential to become treasured family heirlooms. TACORI tennis bracelets are handcrafted by master artisans who painstakingly secure each diamond with hand-made prongs. This is before the 42-point inspection. A tennis bracelet with durable construction and timeless design allows them to be passed down through generations, carrying with them stories and memories, and adding sentimental value that surpasses monetary valuation.

Versatile Fashion Statement

Tennis bracelets' versatility in fashion is unmatched. They can elegantly complement a formal gown, add sophistication to business attire, or elevate casual wear. This adaptability ensures that a tennis bracelet is not just an occasional accessory but a constant companion in various style journeys. 

Spotlight on TACORI's Craftsmanship: A Tradition of Excellence

Every TACORI tennis bracelet is nothing short of a labor of love. It takes our skilled artisans two full days to complete the diamond setting alone, and this dedication to artistry shines through in the setting of the pavé melee diamonds on the bracelet’s silhouette. Setting each of these tiny, sparkling diamonds with microscopic, hand-made prongs requires a level of precision that borders on extraordinary. 

That’s not to mention the work that goes in before the setting. The gold or platinum chain is cast using precision technology, and each diamond, even the melee, is matched and selected by our in-house gemologists. All these steps make way for the final, breathtaking assembly.

Styling and Layering Techniques
