6 Fun Jewelry Ads From 1948

While thumbing through the November 1948 issue of JCK recently, I found several fun jewelry ads that I knew would give our readers a chuckle.

Cardinal Diamond Ring Line

He only has creepy diamond eyes for you.


Even jewelry manufacturers in 1948 knew that an ad with a cat in it had a better chance of going viral.


I’m positive that the guy in this illustration moonlights as a Batman villain.

National Silver Co.

Some jeweler out there somewhere still has one of these hanging around the store. Let’s chat ASAP.

Kirk Dial Corp.

Is it just me, or does this kid look an awful lot like an infant Steven Colbert?

Trophy-Craft Co.

We can add this to the list of items I’ll be bidding on eBay after a few Friday cocktails.
