“So precious a moment, so lovely a ring,” is featured in this 1944 original vintage advertisement for Keepsake Engagement Diamond Rings. The ad features a nice drawing of a young couple with several different engagement ring sets at the bottom. The ad also has a promo for a soldier to send his sweetheart a Keepsake through a local Jeweler.
A BONUS is another a WW2 ad/salute ad on the opposite side of the same page by North American Aviation. It features a WW2 P-51 in combat action drawing. Please see the scan.
The ads are 10x14 and in very good condition. There is some edge aging.
REMEMBER: these are NOT 2 separate items but the front and back of a SINGLE page. They are both being listed because of possible multiple interests or topics. They are both too nice for the buyer not to know about them.
Vintage advertisements and articles are becoming more and more collectible for their nostalgia look and unique eye-appeal. They also are suitable for framing and are becoming more scarce as the supply of vintage paper products continues to decrease.

I saw this ad posted on Etsy a couple of months ago and was intrigued with it...came across it again a few days ago and just had to purchase it. I have my Mom’s Keepsake engagement wedding ring set. Daddy gave her the set in 1944 or 45....he was stationed in a little town in Missouri where she lived. They met at a USO dance...and never lost touch. After the war ended in 1945, he came back for Momma and they were married in a small ceremony. This set of rings has always meant a lot to me. The diamond was lost from its setting over the many years and I replaced it with a Ruby for the Love they shared. The Ad mentions in small print that ‘Keepsake’ Is written on the inside of the ring band. I looked with a magnifying glass and can see that plus 14K. I would have never known that without this ad. Thank you
