I went into a James Avery boutique to buy myself a beautiful ring for Christmas. I had one picked out and was ready to purchase it. Being Christmas, Eve, there was a line, the store was packed. My son waited in line for me, and I had fun looking at all of the beautifully crafted jewelry. I saw this ring, and changed my plan immediately. The pictures do not do this ring justice. The cross is stunning, and the design on the band makes the entire ring special. I wear it always now, and it is probably my favorite piece out of all my James Avery jewelry.
