The world’s oldest and most iconic tennis tournament begins on July 3rd, and is a spectacle in both the sporting and fashion worlds. Held at the iconic All England Club in Wimbledon, London since 1877, the event boasts an unmatched history and distinct traditions.
Competitors are required to wear almost entirely white tennis attire. Spectators sip Pimm’s Cups—cocktails consisting of a gin-based liqueur, lemonade, fruit, cucumber, and mint—and snack on strawberries and cream. Thousands apply to be ball girls and boys, preparing for months to be sure that everything runs smoothly. A hawk named Rufus keeps pigeons away. The list goes on.
Of course, we can’t celebrate a tennis tournament without mentioning the jewelry that players wear on the court. Legends Serena and Venus Williams are known for accessorizing with bold hoop earrings, necklace pendants, and rings. Chris Evert, winner of 18 major singles titles, popularized the diamond eternity tennis bracelet. Maria Sharapova wore a golden cross when she won Wimbledon in 2004. Some of the best athletes in the world show us how to add luxury accessories to our everyday uniforms.
