Costume Gold Tennis Bracelets that Give you a Price Advantage
Faux Gold Tennis Bracelets are Classic Costume Jewelry
I love wearing costume jewelry. I admit it, I am one of those women who like to wear fake jewelry. It's not because I want to fool someone into thinking that I'm wealthier than I am (yeah, like I give a hoot about such pretentiousness). It's because I can wear a million dollar looking bauble at an affordable price. And because I don' have to worry about hiring a bodyguard when I wear something that looks fantastic. And I don't have to worry about losing it. I can basically wear it and enjoy it and not think about it until someone compliments me. "Thank you, and I got it for only $20." Yes, I do like letting people know that I got a great bargain.
Gold tennis bracelets are timeless, it's one of those classic items that you can wear again and again anywhere. And no, you don't have to wear it only for playing tennis. It got its name because of Chris Evert, one of the best tennis players in history. Ms. Evert has a habit of wearing bracelets during her matches (Yeah, a girly-girl jockette!). During one match at the US Tennis Championships, the clasp on her bracelet broke, Ms. Evert noticed it and requested that play be suspended until it was found. Her request was granted and ever since then, it's been called a tennis bracelet. And yes, her bracelet was found. Not only was there a new name for a traditional in-line diamond bracelet (used to be called an eternity bracelet) but the industry made a change to the clasp so that it had a safety chain.
The classic gold tennis bracelet are a row of individually set symmetrical diamonds with a clasp. Nowadays however, you can find tennis bracelets with other gemstones such as emerald or ruby or amethyst and the use of white gold, platinum or silver. Cubic zirconia made the gold tennis bracelet affordable. Here are some wonderful gold tennis bracelets that make you look a million dollars for a song.
