Full Answer

Most commonly, a tennis bracelet refers to an elegant, diamond bracelet that features diamonds set closely together in succession for the length of the bracelet. Unlike a bangle bracelet, a tennis bracelet is flexible and moves with the wearer. It is not uncommon to see the term tennis bracelet refer to a bracelet with other gemstones or diamond substitutions such as a cubic zirconia.
