...or have we? Ad fan Kariann sent us this scan of an ad she found in a 1980's women's fashion magazine. An early example of that "two months salary" rule - yikes. These days DeBeers pushes right hand rings to women, since nobody is getting married anymore. ;)

Full ad with all the horrible copy inside.
