Diamond Tennis Bracelet

Fun FAQ - The in-line diamond bracelet with matching diamonds was originally known as an eternity bracelet. It became known as a “tennis bracelet” when Chris Evert lost her diamond bracelet while playing at the 1987 U.S. Tennis Championships. She asked the officials to stop the game until she found it, and the game was suspended. After Chris’s mishap, this style became known as a tennis bracelet.

The diamond tennis bracelet has become a staple for every woman’s wardrobe. It can be worn alone, with more than one tennis bracelet, or mixed with her other gold bracelets. We carry tennis bracelets in a variety of diamond sizes to suit every budget.

Diamond Hugs and Kisses Ring

Fun FAQ  - The meaning of “xoxo” as hugs and kisses is believed to have originated in the Middle Ages. In the Christian religion, letters were sealed with an X as a sign that the letter was sealed with a kiss of faith. The origin of the O to designate hugs is less clear. One story is that is looks like two people hugging. No one really knows. The same goes for saying “hugs and kisses” even when the X symbol is used first, XOX. It simply is what it is.

The hugs and kisses will be for you when you give her this contemporary diamond and gold Hugs and Kisses ring.

Diamonds-by-the-yard necklace

Fun FAQ - Elsa Peretti for Tiffany & Co originally designed the diamonds-by-the yard necklace. This style of necklace is made with smaller diamonds spaced apart on a chain. To keep the necklace flat against the skin, the diamonds are bezel set (the metal setting surrounds the entire diamond.) The name, diamonds-by-the-yard, refers to the the face that these necklaces can be made in any length.
