Like their bracelet counterparts – which earned their name during the 1978 US Open when three-time Wimbledon-winner Chris Evert lost her diamond bracelet and insisted on pausing a match to find it – tennis necklaces are, by definition, simple, elegant, and timeless. And they’re having a bit of a moment.
While traditionally the term is used to describe a linked band of pavé diamonds (on the wrist or around the neck), they can be stacked or fly solo, depending on the occasion. And while diamonds are, of course, forever a girl’s best friend, we are also tempted by more modern versions – which shake off conventional carats for brightly coloured precious stones and feminine, modern detailing.
Tiffany & Co. can always be relied upon to create the most classic and timeless styles – and we can’t get enough of the Victoria necklace, be that in its strictly diamond guise or that peppered with freshwater pearls. For a touch of fun and colour, especially during the summer months, Suzanne Kalan delivers with show-stopping emeralds, while rainbow gems from Mateo are what all little girl’s dreams are made of. If you’ve made your jewellery box investments elsewhere, then fake it ‘til you make it at Wolf & Badger. No judgement here…
Tiffany & Co. Victoria graduated line necklace
Style and elegance come part and parcel when you purchase anything in that little turquoise box. The stunning Victoria collection, which is inspired by the fire and radiance of the marquise diamonds it bears, boasts designs with both straight lines of diamonds, or with alternating pearls. Perfectly proportioned in every way.
