The tennis bracelet got its name after tennis player Chris Evert lost her diamond bracelet mid-way through a US Open match back in the 1970s. Fitting, then, that Zendaya would make it a staple of her wardrobe while promoting Challengers.

To complement her (impeccable) press tour looks, there was more than one occasion when Zendaya – and her stylist Law Roach – turned to the tennis bracelet as the ultimate accessory. As a result, searches for tennis bracelets, in general, have increased exponentially on Google.

Specific brands are seeing a huge rise in interest for this timeless style, too. reports that, the week Challengers was released, they 'saw searches and purchases for tennis-style jewellery increase (133% more searches than the week before, and +30% purchases more than the week before), showing promising signs that the tennis core trend is only resonating more and more with our audiences.'

On red carpets, a tennis bracelet can be seen on the wrists of everyone from Kate Middleton to Meghan Markle, who loves the Mini Bezel by Jennifer Meyer. Hailey Bieber and Anya Taylor Joy are both fans of Tiffany & Co's incredible tennis bracelets – Bieber's Tiffany Victoria style featured diamonds set in platinum, while Taylor Joy opted for diamonds and pearls (Florence Pugh wore the same one to the Met Gala).

Famously, Ben Affleck gave Jennifer Lopez a diamond tennis bracelet by Harry Winston when they were first engaged in 2002, which she has taken to wearing again now that they're back together and (finally) married. But if you're not planning to hit a red carpet any time soon, then on your next night out or date night, try stacking up the sparkles in honour of being out-OUT.

On the flip side, a neat little row of gems makes an ideal companion to your everyday jeans, T-shirts and even PJs, especially if you follow the style of Kim Kardashian's gang. Thomas Sabo's classic tennis bracelet, which comes in either gold or sterling silver, is set with white zirconia stones, a perfect wear-with-everything addition to your jewellery collection.

Don't be afraid of mixing crystals with your sportswear, either. Emma Raducanu can often be seen sporting a tennis bracelet, natch. Hers are Tiffany & Co. but, If you're bored of diamonds (no judgement), then mix it up with colourful gems in fuchsia, jade and sunshine yellow. We love Roxanne First's tennis braceletto brighten up any drab day.
