So, who knew there was a trend for body jewelry in the 50s? These photos are from 1951 of ‘Cling’ jewelry, which presumably was somehow stuck to your skin rather than pierced into your skin! Frankly I suspect these twinkling baubles would be uncomfortable, would probably fall off after a short time and also leave nasty skin rashes. What do you think?
I love the photos showing all the fascinated ladies crowding round to see and try the body jewelry in the department store!

Hi very nice post. Thank you for sharing it. No doubt these body jewelrys are very beautiful and also gives you a different and stylish look. I like them very much. After this recently I purchased one amber stone jewelry for my sister in her marriage in DR Fine Jewels .Really it is so good and attractive.
They didn’t leave a rash on most people but they did fall off fairly easily and the adhesive got less sticky over time, as it is wont to do. The jewelry you’re showing is more high end than what many of us got at the five and dime.
You’ve shown really nice pieces
