In addition to an engagement ring, a diamond tennis bracelet and necklace are some of the best jewelry pieces you can invest in. Dating back to the 1920s, the row of diamonds is a classic design that will never go out of style. And as demonstrated by celebrities like Hailey Bieber and Meghan Markle, the pieces can be dressed up on the red carpet, as well as worn casually with tank tops and sweatshirts.
While you might think you’ll have to spend a fortune on a tennis necklace or bracelet, that isn’t necessarily true. Both Hailey and Justin Bieber have been caught wearing tennis necklaces from a brand that makes them for less than $1,000: Dorsey. Using lab-grown white sapphires and sterling silver, Dorsey designs necklaces and bracelets that look and feel super luxe but aren’t astronomically expensive. Considering that the Biebers could afford the most precious pieces, the fact that they chose Dorsey is one of the best testaments to the brand’s quality.
Getting your hands on one of Dorsey’s pieces can be tricky, considering how popular they are, but the brand recently launched a new collection with a wide assortment. Whether you're looking for the perfect jewelry for your wedding, an anniversary gift for your partner, or simply want to treat yourself, the new Rivieré collection will not disappoint. Here are some of our favorites from the collection:
Petite Marguerite Necklace
Buy it: $685+, Dorsey.com
While most tennis necklaces feature round or square stones, we love how this design features flower-shaped lab-grown white sapphires. It’s perfect for the floral fanatic or someone who loves whimsical accessories.
Chain Length: 15-18 inches | Metal: Sterling Silver | Carats: 12.25-14.87 carats
Petite Bessette Necklace

For a traditional tennis necklace, you can’t go wrong with the Bessette. A row of baguette-cut lab grown white sapphires creates one clean, smooth line. Feel free to layer or wear alone.

Petite Delphine Necklace

Another interesting take on the classic, this one features 5MM long, pear-shaped lab-grown white sapphires. The pointed shape is nothing short of fierce.

Julien Trillion Cut Bar Necklace
Buy it: $500+, Dorsey.com
If you're looking for a necklace that’s a little more subtle, we recommend the Julien Trillion Cut Bar Necklace. It features a trillion-cut lab-grown white sapphires spaced out between bars for a little less sparkle but plenty of elegance. Try layering it with other pieces à la Hailey Bieber.

Gwen Drop Earrings

These regal drop earrings add a rich pop of color to your bridal look, especially if you have green eyes. Crafted from lab-grown emeralds and set in 18-karat gold-coated sterling silver, these are versatile enough to wear well beyond the big day.
