In the 1967 Tennis Open, Chris Evert, then the #1 World Tennis Player, wore an inline gold bracelet which was a piece of jewelry for which she was famous.
In the middle of the match her bracelet broke and she had the audaciousness to ask for the match to be stopped so she could find her bracelet; the match was stopped. This act of boldness was so outrageous at a top tennis match like this that it became a historical event in Tennis.
From that point on diamond tennis bracelets were renamed and many celebrities began to wear them. Today many tennis stars continue this tradition as they play their matches. In fact, Gabriela Sabatini and Serena Williams wear them on the court today.
