10 Terrible, Sexist, Insulting Diamond Ads

Insulting to both women and men.

1.

Diamonds are a boy’s sense of humor.
2007 ad scanned from Fortune magazine.
Stunningly, amazingly insulting to all parties.

2.

The Hearts On Fire® “brand” diamond sells for 15-20% more than other designer diamonds.
Why? Marketing. Nothing else.
Monogamy to the power of 100?
Bullshit to the power of 100.

3.

Wait WHAT?!?
Is that a guarantee?
I don’t see an asterisk in the ad.

4.

Yeah, dick jokes, that’s the way to go.

5.

Via Ohio.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA…ha.

6.

Via Brazil.
Hey guys, don’t you love being reduced to stereotypical slobs in advertising?
Don’t want to unlearn your habit of leaving the toilet seat up?
Just get Mrs. Naggy McNaggington a big fucking metastable allotrope of carbon.

7.

Nice guilt sell, De Beers.
Fact: 96% of women “expect” a diamond engagement ring before marriage.
That’s the best testament to the power of marketing that exists.

8.

Via South Africa.
Pick the wrong rock, guys, and she’ll leave dinner immediately by any means possible.
Or, the ad is saying: she’ll kill herself. Probably the first scenario.

9.

Brand new ad via Turkey.
“Rosalinda” is a TV soap opera.
Shove a rock on her digit, then watch all the football you want, boys.

10.

Ad via America from 2003.
De Beers moves over to the right hand.
That’s her better handjob hand.
Nothing subliminal about the hand placement here, just move on.
