10 Rad Jewelry Ads From 1987

There was no way I was going to top a jewelry ad featuring Mr. T., but I knew if I dug through JCK’s 1980s archives for more tubular ads I wouldn’t be disappointed.

I was right.

Thanks to this ad, I know how I’m going to propose to the future Mrs. Louped In.

Wright & Lato

All of the jewelry featured in this ad was found in this guy’s beard.


An ad that Ronald Reagan would be proud of (and cite as further evidence we needed the “Star Wars” missile defense system).

F&F Creations

That had to be one uncomfortable bubble bath. As Peter Griffin taught us, diving into a pile of solid objects hurts.

Mastoloni Pearls

A spectacular use of the greatest moment in Olympic history. There’s no debate on this. It was the greatest moment. Period.



Gems Trading Co.

This ad really needed a sword. How can you have a women dressed in knight’s armor without a bejeweled sword?

T.J. Manufacturing

There were a ton of ads that featured hands in some form or another. Here are three of my favorites:

Imperial Pearl
