How to Wear Diamond Tennis Bracelets with Style
Classic, stylish and elegant, diamond tennis bracelets infuse any ensemble with glitter and glam. Here’s how to wear and style your tennis bracelet to elevate your look to a whole other level.
How to Wear a Tennis Bracelet
Tennis bracelets are designed to have a relaxed and somewhat casual-chic fit. They shouldn’t fit like bangles, which sit low on the hand. At the same time, they shouldn’t fit too tightly against the skin. In most instances, you should be able to slip one finger between the tennis bracelet and your wrist.
Many tennis bracelets have removable diamond links for resizing. Whatever the case, it’s important to make sure the bracelet isn’t too loose; after all, the last thing you want is a Chris Evert situation, where your bracelet slips off at an inopportune time.
How to Wear a Tennis Bracelet with a Watch
Tennis bracelets look fantastic on their own, but if you'd like to add a fashionable edge, try pairing yours with a stylish watch.
Since diamond tennis bracelets are designed to add subtle sparkle to your overall look, pairing them with watches is much easier than you might expect. The combination looks especially attractive when both pieces have matching precious metals, whether it’s classic yellow gold, refined white gold or romantic rose gold. The pieces also complement each other well when the watch includes some scintillating luxe diamond accents.
If you’d prefer to spread out your style, you can always wear your tennis bracelet on one wrist and your watch on the other. This look is an especially attractive strategy if your watch’s band is leather instead of metal because it keeps the glitter of the diamonds to one side where it won’t detract from the more laid-back look of the leather. That said, there’s certainly nothing wrong with wearing a leather watchband right alongside your diamond bracelet. In some instances, however, the delicacy of the bracelet may clash somewhat with the comparatively tougher leather strap. Since everyone has a unique style, however, the final decision comes down to whatever look you like best.
What to Wear with a Tennis Bracelet
The beauty of the diamond tennis bracelet is that it goes with virtually anything. This means you can wear yours any time of day, with any outfit, for any occasion. This includes everything from ball gowns and pantsuits to t-shirts, jeans, and, yes, even pajamas and loungewear.
Similar to pearl earrings and the little black dress, tennis bracelets have unique versatility and timeless appeal. You can never go wrong with an uninterrupted string of diamonds on your wrist. In fact, you could pair them with the most elegant diamond studs and diamond choker and still pull off a casual-chic look without being labeled overdressed.
Pairing with Other Jewelry
Designed for beauty and versatility, diamond tennis bracelets look great on their own. They can also be worn with other pieces on the same wrist; in fact, they often look best that way. In addition to pairing a fashionable watch with your tennis bracelet, you can stack it with other high-fashion bracelets, such as John’s Endearment, Apollo Shagreen and Entwine bangle. They also look incredible with complementary pieces, including bold statement necklaces, gorgeous diamond earrings and stunning cocktail rings.
An Enduring Classic
Endlessly versatile, diamond tennis bracelets come in carat weights and diamond quality that work within virtually any budget. While these stylish jewelry pieces go with everything, they are also available in diverse styles, from the Oyster collection, with its gentle undulating arches and smooth curves to the exquisitely crafted Monaco tennis bracelet and its artfully cut gems.
