I know what white gold is and what rose gold is, but I had to look up green gold. It looks like it is a straight alloy of gold and silver, and has a slightly greenish tinge. Cadmium can also be added to the alloy to increase the green color, but products with cadmium in them tend to get recalled nowadays, including a recent large recall of Shrek drinking glasses, of all things.
Thanks to David Y for pointing out the “not a divorce in a thousand” line, which I had overlooked before. Reminds me of the ads for Old Gold cigarettes: “Not a cough in a carload.” And equally likely to be true!
You know, i think back on the engagement/wedding ring ads i heard all the time on the radio when i lived in Utah (i can’t recall the name of the one place that had the utterly omnipresent ads, but they were truly annoying), and i think the ads’ pitches now are essentially the same, just slightly—but only slightly—subtler.
