As Wimbledon 2024 kicks off, Emirates Woman rounds up the lust-worthy tennis bracelets in the market.

From classics to contemporary pieces, this handpicked edit will score you style points in and out of the court.

Its roots go back to the roaring ’20s when it was simply called a line bracelet. Back then, women used to pile them on as symbols of glamour. What was once a formal style staple was changed in 1978 when this delicate diamond bracelet was given its sporty name – thanks to Chris Evert. During a US Open match, her line bracelet fell off her wrist which resulted in the game being briefly suspended to look for it and that was when the term “tennis bracelet” was born.

In 2021, it gained its way back into the jewellery scene and have stayed on as a must-have, with modern colourful upgrades and budget-friendly options now available. Its simple and enduring allure means it can be worn not only during special occasions but also everyday to elevate a simple T-shirt and jeans daytime outfit. These days, you’ll spot style mavens layer their stack alongside other metal hardware.

For a classic iteration, invest in elegant pieces from fine-jewellery favourites Anita Ko, Suzanne Kalan, Sophie Bille Brahe or LA-based label Katkim. For the bold and daring, look towards contemporary labels like Swarovski, MISBHV, or EÉRA – with versions injected with colour, detail, and a feature mixed cuts.
