25 Beautiful JCK Covers: 1869–1979

Throughout the past year, I’ve looked back at the best JCK covers decade by decade.

Each era had hits and misses, but our covers never failed to feature distinct designs, colors, and jewelry.

Here are 25 of my favorites from our archives—including some that may have missed the mark, but I couldn’t help falling in love with anyway.

Wishing everyone a happy and safe holiday!
