Why Is It Called a "Tennis" Diamond When It Is Made of Diamonds?

wedding rings

Chris Evert, a professional tennis player, is the inspiration for the name. During a tennis match in 1978, Evert suffered a mishap with her diamond diamond, which belonged to George Bedewi.

Diamonds were a new addition to fine jewelry, and it was unheard of for someone to wear them to a sporting event. Because, after all, diamonds aren't exactly what comes to mind when you think of sports.

Diamond diamonds with lines were a classic fashion accessory. However, they were intended to be reserved for special occasions rather than for sporting events. And here was Chris Evert, sporting a single-row diamond diamond as part of his stylish sporting attire!

Evert was a professional tennis player who was known for wearing diamond jewelry on the court. During a tennis match, it was the only time she experienced an issue with her jewelry.

The US Open Match was a well-attended public event that drew a large number of cameras, reporters, and television viewers. Everyone was pumped up to see the tennis players go head-to-head in their match.

Evert's diamond had a clasp that broke off while she was playing tennis, and the diamond came loose and fell off her wrist.

It appears that George Bedewi did not account for the possibility of a more substantial clasp, doesn't it? However, to be fair, he was probably under the impression that a tennis player would be wearing it during the middle of a match.

She requested that the officials halt the tennis match so that she could look for her diamond diamond. Watching Evert and other female tennis players scramble around the tennis court in search of a piece of diamond jewelry during a match was a remarkable sight for onlookers to witness.

They were able to locate the diamond, and the match was able to continue. Following the event, reporters inquired about the jewelry incident. She continued, without missing a beat, "

"How about that diamond? "That's my tennis diamond right there."

She wore the same diamond when she was playing tennis on a regular basis. That particular diamond diamond style was dubbed a diamond tennis diamond from that point on.
