Diamonds Are Forever - What's Your Tennis Bracelet Worth?

Have you ever looked at your tennis bracelet and thought it was worth anything?

If you own a diamond tennis bracelet, you probably know that it is a very special piece of jewelry. Even if you don't wear it often, it's important to protect and maintain this valuable asset. Understanding the value of your tennis bracelet can help you appreciate its importance and take better care of it.

What are diamond tennis bracelets worth? The value of your diamond tennis bracelet is based on four main factors: carat weight, cut, clarity, and color. The higher quality of these factors, the more valuable your bracelet will be.

The Diamonds Are Pretty, But Are They Real?

The tennis bracelet has been a staple of fashionable women's jewelry since Chris Evert lost her diamond-studded bracelet during a match at the U.S. Open in 1987. Since then, countless women have tried to emulate the look of this dainty accessory, from professional athletes to celebrities and everyone in between. The diamonds are pretty, but are they real?

While it is possible to find sterling silver bracelets studded with real diamonds, most tennis bracelets on the market today are costume jewelry. They are made with cubic zirconia, a synthetic material that looks like diamonds but costs much less. Unless you have an appraisal or know for certain that your bracelet is made of actual diamonds, assume it's costume jewelry — and don't be afraid to wear it!

You can still wear your favorite bracelet without worrying about losing or damaging it if you take a few precautions.

Don't take the clasp off your wrist while wearing it. Instead, put the bracelet on and remove it over your hand. This will prevent one end from falling off and getting lost when you're not paying attention. Don't wear it while doing any activities where you might snag or catch it on something.

Keep your tennis bracelet safe and secure.

Purchasing Insurance. Just like you would with your other valuable possessions, such as your home or car, you want to add this item to your homeowner's or renter's insurance policy so that if it is stolen or damaged, you'll be able to replace it.

Safely Storing Your Tennis Bracelet. When you're not wearing your tennis bracelet, keeping it in a safe location is essential. Some people store valuable items such as jewelry in a bank deposit box

It's Always Worth Knowing Your Jewelry Value

The first thing to know is that the vast majority of jewelry is not worth anything like its retail price. Unless it's antique or has a famous provenance, most jewelry is only worth the intrinsic value of the precious metals and gems it contains. This means that despite any sentimental value, if you sell your gold or platinum bracelet to a jeweler or pawnbroker, it won't be worth more than the value of the gold or platinum used to make it.

The best way to find out about the approximate value of your jewelry is to take it to a jeweler and ask for an appraisal, particularly if you bought it from a well-known store or designer. If you bought your "diamond" tennis bracelet from a reputable jeweler or designer, you can be sure that each stone is genuine and that they are set in valuable precious metal — usually gold or platinum. This means that even if they are not particularly large stones, the bracelet will be worth something significant.
