I can't find an ad match.  Those lugs- almost like an elegant starcase which Miss America (or Miss Universe) would come walking down- except for the 21 jewels in subject vs 17 in ads. If it were a couple years earlier, a screen star could walk down those stairs to receive an award.

Gotta go unknown for now.
