Serve, Game & Love

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. So intrinsically linked are the two that tennis champ Chris Evert famously halted a US Open match in 1987 when her diamond bracelet came loose. She was considerably more concerned with retrieving her baubles than the game that her career hinged on.

Since then, bracelets with an inline string of diamonds became affectionately known as tennis bracelets. And to prevent such instances of jewellery malfunction, they are now fitted with a safety clasp – so you can have and hold them forever.

Here’s what money can buy you these days.
