TENNIS BRACELETS
Unlike the classic diamond ring which has a more romantic significance, the more casual tennis or eternity bracelet is a perfect choice for women of any age.   Whether your choice of stones are diamonds or colored gemstones, tennis bracelets can be worn as a single piece of jewelry or layered with other jewelry to make up a striking collection. The loose links make it a wonderful piece to wear every day and will give every casual outfit a touch of sophistication.   The choices are endless when designing  the tennis bracelet.   The cut of the stones can be square, oval or round, making for an interesting yet simple piece of jewelry.   Whether you would like to buy a vintage tennis bracelet or design a new one, Andrews Jewelry Store in Centennial has a huge selection of antique tennis bracelets to choose from.

COCKTAIL RINGS
Originating in the prohibition era, cocktail rings were just about as popular as the cocktails themselves. Due to regulations, the cocktail itself served as a status symbol and a large, sparkling ring only further spoke on behalf of this. While you may not always notice cocktail rings when you go out for drinks present day, they normally do make a comeback at least once a year- during the holidays.

The name cocktail ring originated during the prohibition era when cocktails were  considered status symbols and the rings matched the cocktails in sparkle and color.   The festive season is the perfect time to wear your colored gemstones usually favoring the right hand for these artistic pieces.   Cocktail rings can be designed with a halo of diamonds and a center gemstone or perhaps just using the large colored stone in a beautiful yellow or white gold setting.   Cocktail rings are a perfect way to express your individuality and fun side.
