How to Shop for Diamond Bracelets
Whether you are shopping for diamond bracelets for yourself or a loved one, there are a few factors to consider. First, you will want to think about the style you desire. Would you like something with a solid frame, a gold chain, or a row of diamonds? Would you like something thin and dainty or wide and statement-making?
Next, you will begin to think about the metal setting or chain you'd like. You can choose from yellow gold, white gold, or platinum, though we wouldn't recommend cheaper metals like sterling silver or stainless steel. You may even see diamond bracelets with two-tone or tri-tone options in diamond or metal. On a diamond bracelet with a chain or bangle, the metal setting will stand out significantly, whereas, on a tennis bracelet, it may just give the diamonds a silver or gold tone.
Lastly, you will want to consider the type of diamond you'd like in terms of cut, carat, clarity, and color. You may want a classic round cut or a princess cut or have your heart set on a particular carat count and clarity. You can customize our lab-created diamond bracelets to your desire.
What's better is that lab-grown diamonds can cost up to 50% less than mined diamonds, so that you can get your dream bracelet within a reasonable budget.
The History of Diamond Bracelets
Tennis bracelets are a classic and stunning diamond bracelet style. They consist of a long chain of diamonds set and connected by the metal of your choice. Did you know that tennis bracelets got their name when tennis player Chris Evert famously wore her blinged-out diamond bracelet during a match? It fell off while she played, and she stopped the match to look for it! That is how the term tennis bracelet will be forever connected to the image of a diamond bracelet.
Later, when she was asked about it in an interview, she said, "Oh, that? That's my tennis bracelet!" The name has stuck since! Before this, they were called diamond line bracelets or eternity bracelets. Although her initial bracelet clasp didn't hold during her rigorous physical activity, more durable clasps and clasp reinforcements are available now, perhaps thanks to her famous mishap.
