Jewelry ads from years gone by are wonderful for helping to date vintage jewelry. Most important companies used ad campaigns in women's magazines to draw attention to their jewelry products. With these vintage jewelry ads, we can pinpoint the year a particular piece of jewelry was made. Even though you may not find your exact piece of jewelry illustrated, the ads show us the jewelry styles and materials that were popular during specific years.
The vintage ad pages that weren't working properly have been fixed thanks
to the assistance of Dinah Hoyt Taylor and Mary Walden-Till.
