While diamond and gemstone line bracelets and necklaces go back to at least the early 20th century, the "tennis" part of their name is usually traced back to athletic superstar Chris Evert's affinity for a diamond bracelet (among other jewels) that she wore while playing and, famously, nearly lost in a 1978 US Open match. Easily pictured on a country club-going, twin set-wearing type, tennis bracelets and necklaces alike have stormed their way into wider popularity as jewelry lovers everywhere look to up their wrist and neck messes.

This estate piece is generously long, sensuously cascading down your chest, but if you desired a shorter fit, a skilled jeweler could easily remove links (and the total length is long enough that you could even - in theory - pull out enough for a bracelet and necklace matching set). The settings are linked along one side rather than flat under the setting (as in a bracelet) in order to help prevent rolling over, but at this length some movement should naturally be expected.

Good estate condition with wear in line with age and use. It's possible that this necklace was lengthened from an original, as there is a very, very slight kink approximately 2" from the clasp along with evidence of link repair; this is not visible when worn.
