Not only does a solitaire look effortless and classic, but it completes a look. Take oval, pear or marquise cuts—these rounded pendants have long been synonymous with romantic events, while geometric and rectangular sections of a cushion or emerald cut are great for a more contemporary look. Consider investing in a sturdy chain that can stand the test of time. Repurposing never looked better!
Broadway shows in New York, USA
In 1978, tennis champion Chris Evert accidentally broke her delicate diamond and gold bracelet while playing during the US Open.

A similar age-no-bar appeal can be found at the broadway shows in New York. Home to countless broadway theatres, these culturally-rich havens present many shows throughout the year. Think The Phantom of the Opera, The Lion King, Les Misérables, a whole lot more. Cheer and applaud for the stellar performances with your tennis bracelet twinkling in the audience–easy to carry and still a head-turner.
