Tennis bracelets

Forgive my lack of sophisdickation, but does anyone actually play tennis while wearing these? In my mind, jewelry + exercise = silly. Diamond bracelets shouldn’t have anything to do with tennis (Chris Evert learned this the hard way when she broke one mid-tournament and had to stop the match to retrieve her gemstones). Like chicklets in Juicy sweatsuits, gals wearing tennis bracelets are most likely not mid-exercise.

The jewelry equivalent of a French manicure, tennis bracelets are nouveau riche. As soulless as Ryan Seacrest, these bourgeoisie baubles don’t denote your status on the social ladder; they tag you as sheep. They aren’t bracelets as much as leashes. Baby, you may own a few carats of J-grade diamonds, but your ass is metaphorically owned by Kay Jewelers and the Cheesecake Factory.

Since you put the ass in class, I'm going to carve "classy" into your butt cheeks with one of your diamonds. Too harsh? Okay, fine. I'll rip that double fault of wretched excess off your tanorexic wrist and lash you with it instead. I'm just helping you leave your mark.

I play a fair amount of tennis and was stupid enough to wear a bracelet ONCE while playing. Not even a 'tennis' bracelet, but WOW did it hurt and get in the way. Sports + Jewelry = NOOOOOOO.

A wore a similar piece of wrist jewelry, a clasped watch, while playing baseball once. The clasp came undone right as I swung the bat. It cut up my wrist like a goth who just finished reading The Bell Jar. I still have the scars; constant reminders of the vendetta I have that you are currently carrying out. Thank you.

Tennis Bracelets are an enhancement
of beauty, the beauty of a woman or a man is enhanced by wearing earrings or some other kind of jewelries.
