I had been wanting a cross that I could wear daily, either in my knock-around-the-house cloths or dressed up a little nicer when out in public shopping or out to dinner with my husband. I had been vacillating between three different crosses when my husband surprised me not to long ago with this one! I think it's just lovely! It has a very nice weight to it and I love the two tone look! I'm so happy that James Avery is bringing in more color with the use of enamels and the bead charms. I really love that they're using more bronze! I don't always want silver but gold is just to price prohibitive if I want to just treat myself. With bronze. you get that old gold look without the exorbitant cost of gold. This cross is a good example of just that! Love this cross!!
