Diamonds in a Row - Origins of the famous Tennis Bracelet

 

It might seem absurd to wear jewellery whilst playing a sport. You might easily risk damaging it. But then, how did this trend of wearing diamond line bracelets /tennis bracelets during a match become so popular? 
For this, we will have to take a look at a famous incident in the career of an American tennis prodigy, Chris Evert. Though there are multiple quibbles on the date of this incident, one can agree that a new trend of sporting success around your wrist had started. 

Most sources state that during Chris' match with Martina Navratilova in 1987, her diamond bracelet flew off her arm, halting the game. Funnily, the referees had granted her permission to look for it.
According to some other sources, 19-year-old Chris Evert had stopped play during her ongoing rally to look for her bracelet. The game was said to have transformed her career, the bracelet being her lucky charm. From that day forward, she was seen sporting a diamond bracelet for all her matches. The journey from a rookie to a tennis legend with multiple Grand Slams all started with that lone incident. As for the trend, well it stuck around. Even to this day, you can see Serena Williams sporting her tennis bracelet while playing.
