With the U.S. Open in full swing, Wempe Jewelers has a chic selection of tennis bracelets that might just capture as much attention as the athletes themselves. The tennis bracelet has a rich history surrounding the U.S. Open. Tennis legend, Chris Evert (who won 18 Grand Slam singles championships), is credited with starting the trend of wearing diamond bracelets on center court in the 1970’s — encouraging many women to don what is today known as the “tennis” bracelet — s single strand of gold set with diamonds.
Although wardrobes are becoming less formal, women…and even men — have taken to dressing up their daily looks with the simple, classic tennis bracelet. The subtle design offers the wearer the opportunity to wear the bracelet on its own, or layered with other bracelets or a favorite timepiece. Wempe’s collection is all meticulously handcrafted in Germany and with their micro-tennis bracelets starting under $3,000 – this must have accessory is now more accessible than ever. Wempe even offers colored stone tennis bracelets.
