A tennis bracelet is a bracelet made up of either diamonds or gemstones placed in a symmetrical pattern, all connected by a thin metal chain. The reason this bracelet is called a tennis bracelet is due to the 1987 US Open where professional tennis player Chris Evert lost her diamond bracelet in the middle of the match. She asked the officials to pause the game whilst she searched for the bracelet, whilst TV viewers and spectators watched the tennis bracelet search take place.
Charm bracelets have become increasingly popular over the years and many popular brands have created their own versions that have taken the world by storm. So what exactly is a charm bracelet?

A bangle is essentially still a bracelet, however, to determine the two the simplest of terms is that a bangle is known to be a more rigid and ring-shape-styled bracelet which is traditionally made from metal.

Chain and link bracelets again are another style of bracelet that has become increasingly more popular in recent times. A chain or link bracelet is a piece of jewellery worn on the wrist that is made by connecting links into a band.
The slider or toggle bracelet is an alternative style of clasp in comparison to that of a more traditional bracelet.
