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!
