Did you know that a bracelet does not qualify to be called a “tennis bracelet” unless it has certain well-defined design? In order to be bought or sold as such, diamond tennis bracelets must have stones that go all the way around the bracelet in what’s called an “in-line setting.” Another good word for this is an “eternity” bracelet, since there is no beginning and no end, just a single, circular row of gemstones.
What, exactly, is an In-Line Setting?
Tennis bracelets employ a setting that classically features symmetrical diamonds mounted individually on a circular row. This is known as an in-line design or setting. While it appears very simple and striking, it is actually quite intricate, comprising many delicately pronged metal settings for gemstones, usually diamonds. Tennis bracelets are designed to fit around the wrist and assume its natural shape perfectly, regardless of the fact that they are made up of many inflexible metal and stone components. A safety latch and a clasp are also obligatory parts of the classic tennis bracelet design.
