A Diamond Line Bracelet is a beautiful and timeless piece of jewellery that always sparkles and never goes out of style. Also known as a ‘Tennis’ bracelet from when the American Tennis star Chris Everett’s bracelet famously fell off her wrist during the US open.
Line bracelets are typically made up of a row of uniform shaped and size diamonds claw set in a line, hence the name! But they can have a collet or a box setting also. They can be worn casually during the day and look every bit as great with a pair of jeans and a t – shirt than they do with evening attire. They generally have a very secure clasp and are understated, which makes them perfect for all the time wear; wearing your diamonds throughout the day makes sure you get value for your money!
Line Bracelets are one of the items of jewellery that we get enquiries about month after month, and in August’s auction our star lot (Lot 356) is a beautiful example; the quality of which we do not often see. It is made up of collet set graduated old cut diamonds weighing over 14.00 carats in total, the starting estimate is €18,000 and is a super investment piece.
Other examples in our forthcoming auction include lot 226, a princess cut line bracelet, and lots 227, 228, 229 and 344
