Some elements of this text to consider:
- The LGBT-friendly elements of the ad. The overall goal ad is of course to sell jewelry but there are socially progressive elements to it as well.
- The section of the ad that says “Traditions are what you make them” which alludes to the fact that gay weddings are breaking a long-standing (and discriminatory) tradition.
- The inclusion of the names and location of the two individuals in the ad makes it seem more authentic and less like a staged photo shoot with two models.
