Coined ‘tennis bracelet’ after tennis pro Chris Evert wore a continuous row of diamonds on her wrist during her Grand Slam matches in the late 1970s, this bracelet style has been popular since the roaring twenties. Historically worn for opulent events and paired with black-tie dresses, Evert proved that fine jewellery didn’t just have to be for formal events. With diamonds glinting on her wrist and capturing the eye of audiences with every swing of her racket, the tennis bracelet became a beloved jewellery favourite that has stood the test of time.
A champion of everyday jewellery, it is no wonder the tennis style caught Kiki’s eye. Injecting her renowned love of colour combinations and playfulness into her designs, these new Signatures bracelets are a contemporary twist on a classic style. Designed with an array of colourful gemstones in 18ct yellow gold, there is a colour combination here to suit every outfit. With pairings including soft Lavender Amethyst and Dusky Pink Tourmaline, Grass-Green Peridot and Striking Fire Opal, Golden Citrine and Sky-Blue Topaz, these are bracelets that belong both on the court and in the stands. And, because you can never have enough colour, we are also launching new Signatures earrings in Blue Topaz, Green Amethyst, citrine, Lemon Quartz and amethyst. With a selection of diamond motif tops, these earrings are the perfect match to our tennis bracelets and ideal for adding a touch of joy and sophistication to your outfit.
