Choose the setting for your Tennis Bracelet

  • Prong

    3-4 prongs are used to hold the gemstone in place. It is the most popular and widely preferred setting as it holds the stone tightly while giving enough space for light to pass through.

  • Bezel

    The gemstones are surrounded by metal on all sides. It is famous as one of the most protective settings. Because of its safe covering, the setting is considered for ideal wear.

  • Channel

    Two thin rows of metal made walls on either side and held the row of stones in the middle.

Choosing the Metal for your Tennis Bracelet

The choices you get for each of your bracelets are yellow gold, rose gold, and white gold. Rose gold is made with a mixture of copper and yellow gold to give it its pink and rosy hue. White gold is made with a blend of yellow gold and metals like silver or nickel. And yellow gold is a pure form of gold mixed with metals like zinc or copper. Each metal color offers a unique look. You can choose whichever color complements the gemstone well.

Also, consider the gold karat from which the tennis bracelet is crafted. It helps in determining the purity and durability of the jewelry. 14K gold is recommended as it looks great, comes at an affordable price, and most importantly, its durability makes it resistant to damage.
