Types of diamond bracelets
Diamond tennis bracelets remain one of the most classic and popular choices. Types of diamond bracelets include bangles, cuffs, beaded, charms, spirals and link bracelets. A tennis bracelet makes an excellent anniversary, birthday, or wedding gift for a spouse.
The origin of the name comes from a 1987 incident where Chris Evart, a world champion in women's tennis, broke a thin diamond-strand bracelet she was wearing while playing a tennis match. The match was halted so that the scattered diamonds could be re covered. These come in classic and modern styles. Since then, thin diamond bracelets had a new name-and a new popularity among diamond lovers. Some are also made up of gold, sterling silver and diamonds.

A diamond is a form of carbon
A diamond is a form of carbon that was created deep within the core of the earth more than 3 billion years ago and brought to the surface by volcanic eruption. In diamond, each carbon atom is bonded to four other carbon atoms in a tetrahedral structure, like a pyramid.
Each link or bond is the same length, and the tetrahedral formation is therefore completely regular. Theoretically a perfect diamond crystal could be composed of one giant molecule of carbon. After the magma cooled, it solidified into kimberlite, where the precious rough diamond is still found today. It is the strength and regularity of this bonding which makes diamond very hard, non-volatile and resistant to chemical attack.
