9CT GOLD DIAMOND TENNIS BRACELET
This excellent 9ct Gold Diamond tennis bracelet is a perfect example of modern claw setting techniques, and I am certainly glad of them because this bracelet is completely stunning.
I think it looks like a portal into another universe on your wrist with the masterfully created claw settings for the fifty beautiful Diamonds. The four claws around each Diamond have been turned into a feature; they look like stars bursting out and shining gloriously, twinkling delicately against the warm and inviting Gold sky.
The metalwork on each roundel adds a superb depth and texture to the bracelet. I adore the pretty framework.
Light and wearable but with all the impact of a larger piece, I think this bracelet is the perfect accessory, it's so easy to dress up or down.
It has a tongue and groove fastening with a safety catch for extra security.
Available in three carat weights; .25ct, .50ct and a full 1ct of Diamonds, and each in warm Yellow or cool White Gold.

The name "tennis bracelet" came about after an incident at the 1987 U.S. Tennis Championships involving tennis champ Chris Evert. She was wearing an in-line diamond bracelet while playing one of her matches, and the clasp broke. Her diamond bracelet slipped off her wrist. She requested that the match be suspended until she found her bracelet. Her request was granted, and because of this incident, the bracelet became known as a Diamond tennis bracelet.
Until the late 1800s, Diamonds were among the rarest gemstones on the planet, and due to their incredible hardness, coupled with the belief that cutting them would reduce their magical powers, were often not faceted. In fact, it was not until the 1400s that the first rudimentary facets were being applied to the gem. Then, in the late 1800s, everything began to change with the discovery of Diamonds in South Africa. Through huge marketing campaigns by the owners of these new deposits, the new kid on the gem block went from being fairly unknown, to unquestionably the global leader within half a century.
Diamond jewellery is best stored individually in a soft pouch or a box with compartments away from sunlight and where its harder gemstones can’t scratch softer ones.
White gold is usually enhanced with Rhodium plating. To preserve this plating, avoid swimming in your jewellery as chlorine, in particular, can cause faster degradation. Chlorine is present in small amounts in tap water, so it is best to avoid getting your jewellery wet where possible. It is a simple matter to have items re-plated.
