Diamonds
Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad that is intended to remind us that "A diamond is forever". There is a series of small pictures that show a couple preparing to ride horses and a larger picture that shows a young lady who has wrapped her arms around her young man in excitement. The text explains that he asked her to go riding when she wanted to go to the movies. He won the argument, for probably the last time, and they went to ride horses. He proposed to her at the stables and the larger picture of her arms around his neck seems to indicate that the answer was a positive one.
