Royalty Tennis bracelet

Comment: I was looking for the origin of the term 'tennis bracelet'.
Apparently, Chris Evert supposedly stopped a match of the 1987 US Open
after her diamond bracelet broke so she could find her lost jewelry. After
this incident, this style of bracelet went from being called an eternity
bracelet to a tennis bracelet. I couldn't find any original source
material for this, however.
