Still popular today, the Diamonds by the Yard Necklace And Bracelet became an instant classic when introduced by Tiffany and Co. in 1974. The Diamonds by the Yard Necklace and bracelet can also be referred to as a Station Necklace or Bracelet and the singular stone version is known as the Floating solitaire Necklace.
A station necklace is a necklace with “stations” of diamonds, gemstones or pearls that are set in a specific pattern with a simple wire bezel setting. The stones are set and separated by equal lengths of chain between each station.
A tin cup necklace is essentially the same type of style as a Diamonds by the Yard Necklace or Station Necklace. The tin cup necklace gained popularity in 1996 when worn by actress Rene Russo in the movie Tin Cup also starring Kevin Costner. Renee Russo wore a pearl Station Necklace which became extremely popular and dubbed the Tin Cup Necklace.
All three terms are used interchangeably to describe this type of necklace. Another option similar to this style of necklace is the Floating Solitaire Necklace, as seen above. This necklace has a single bezel set round diamond for a classic yet sophisticated look. These types of diamond look necklaces have remained a popular addition to many women’s fine jewelry collection and recently Pippa Middleton was pictured wearing a Floating Solitaire Necklace!
