Long time reader but first post.

My beautiful wife would never buy anything for herself so for our 8th wedding anniversary I wanted to suprise her with a tennis bracelet as she has always loved them but said they were too expensive.

I searched all over my usual spots JA, blue nile, whiteflash but wasn't sold on quality/price then a few ppl on here recommended ID Jewelry.

Simply, they were fantastic to deal with. They made exactly what I wanted, exceeded my expectations and delivered on time with a tight schedule.

Being a tennis bracelet, not having certification for each diamond made me reluctant to buy online without a recommendation. A lot of local stores here in Australia also had bracelets that didn't look nearly as good as their specs claimed and others that had good pieces were priced ridiculously high.

ID Jewelry came highly recommended on pricescope and I wasn't disappointed!

My wife absolutely adores it. I made a champagne picnic for her in our garden and surprised her with it. Outside in daylight, the reflection is incredible and photos can't do it justice.

Specs are:
33 Round Brilliant Diamonds
Carat: Approx. 8.25ctw (.25pts each)
Color: F+
Clarity: SI1+ (100% Eye Clean)
Cut: Ideal - Excellent
Bracelet: 14kt white gold

My goal was to get 8ctw to signify our 8yr wedding anniversary (couldn't afford 15ctw for total yrs together!)

0.25pts are usually associated with a 10ct bracelet but her wrists are tiny so I ordered a 6.5" bracelet and made the diamonds larger. It still ended up being too big by 1/2" so I'll try turn 3 diamonds into a small necklace.



For reference her ring is 1.53ct, D, VS true hearts and this bracelet looks on par with it in person. It was really important that they complimented each other and one didn't overshadow the other in quality.

Thanks everyone for all your great information and can't recommend Jonna at ID Jewelry high enough!

Happy 8th wedding Anniversary from another Aussie!
Your DW’s tennis bracelet looks amazing, so beautiful.
I also have a smaller sized tennis bracelet from IDJ and I love it.
