Did you ever wonder why we call these bracelets Tennis Bracelets? So here is the scoop. There was an incident involving Chris Evert during a US Open match. She had been wearing an expensive bracelet featuring a single line string of individually-set diamonds. When the clasp snapped, she asked the officials to stop the match until the jewelry could be found. Ever since that event in 1987, this style of bracelet has been referred to as a tennis bracelet. Before that event, they were called eternity bracelets.
The Tennis Bracelet fromUMODE Jewelry isn't gold and diamonds but the style is the same. Although the bracelet is a replication, Umode does this admirably. I have the 6.5" size which fits perfectly. There are 28 hand set, multi-faceted Cubic Zirconia half carat stones that are designed to catch the light from any direction. When the sun shines on it, you can actually see rainbow colors. At night, it sparkles under the light. The base metal is brass which is chrome plated and highly polished to resemble white gold. The fold over style clasp is easy to finagle yourself so that you are not dependent on others to help you with your jewelry.
Although this bracelet was provided to me for the purpose of testing, evaluation and review, I would buy it again. . Based on my personal experience with the bracelet, I find it to be a very nice piece of costume jewelry. It looks like the real deal but at a fraction of the price. After several weeks of wear, there is no discoloration and feels strong. At under $20, you can wear it without the worry of loosing it. If Chris Evert had this in 1987, she would not have had to stop the game in order to look for her bracelet. The bracelet makes an excellent gift for graduation, Valentines Day, Birthday or Christmas. You can't go wrong with this one.
