seeking diamond ads
February 1, 2010 3:59 PM   Subscribe

I am looking for diamond ads that use slogans along the lines of "who says money can't buy love" or other similarly themed taglines. I googled many times, but could not find these particular themed ads, though I recall seeing them in the past. Anyone who can point me in this direction, thank you.

I think you might want to seek out DeBeers' ads - the whole "How else could two months' salary last forever?" thing. Yuck.

See the ninth ad on this page.

Response by poster: Dasein, is the Beatles ad the real thing? I'm assuming the others are parodies...

THanks benzenedream, for that wealth.

yeah I find this marketing nauseating. (am writing a blog post about it)

No, they're all parodies.

Response by poster: oh thanks. the real ads are so gross they barely need parodying.

Best answer: via Sociological Images, one of my favorite websites in the universe:
"Make Her Speechless. For A Change."
"A little charm goes a long way [photo of diamond ring, man/woman in bed]"
"How far [into debt] would you go for love?"
"The idea isn't to make her sort of happy"

They have many, many more... go to the site and search 'diamonds' or 'jewelry' and you will find treasures. :)
