I'm devastated. I bought this ring for my son as a token by which to always remember the day he gave his life to the Lord. He hasn't even had it 24 hours, and his finger is green. The inside of of the ring tarnished within hours and the result was a green finger. Working on returning this item. I suggest bypassing this ring unless you go gold.

My Man Talk Ring
Every man on my mothers side of the family wears this ring. My uncles, cousins, ect. My father was not in the picture as I grew up and i had a wonder stepdad and uncles who stepped in and were awesome. (straight up second hand lions) So at 17 My uncle gave me this ring and gave me a long talk. I had already had "the talk" but this talk was much more profound and impacting. From God to money, women to being a good man I got it good. The is my man talk ring. I love this ring. And I just had it stolen today. I can't describe how upset I am right now. As soon as I can save up enough I will be buying another. Im very heart broken over it being stolen. I had some much sentimental value tied to this ring. It was beaten, indented, and even chipped in some places. And I would rather have my old ring but I am very happy that this style is still being made since was given this ring 8 years ago! I highly recommend this ring and its quality and cant wait to have one back on my finger!
Wide Crosslet Ring
I adore this ring! I have admired James Avery jewelry since I was a child in Oklahoma going to Christian retreats with my parents. They had James Avery jewelry on display for sale and I remember gazing in awe at all the lovely pieces and wishing at the age of 6 or 7 that I could own some. Well many years later I have not lost my love for this jewelry as well as the quality it represents and the heartfelt statement it makes. I now own several pieces with this ring included. This ring being the first piece I fell in love with all those years ago!
This was actually my 1st online perchase from JA and delivery was very quick!! the ring isn't too big or too small, its very simple but it has a bold meaning of faith, i love the cut out cross and its like a signet style ring, another great perchase from JA!!
What are you waiting for?
I've been debating on purchasing this ring for a few years now. I was concerned that it might appear to "manly" on my dainty fingers. That is not the case. It is lovely and still substantial. I am very glad I finally purchased it. Half a size (maybe even a whole size) larger is a good idea for this ring as it is wide.
Very Classic Design
I wear this on my middle finger. For a woman it makes a great ring for your middle finger because it is a larger style ring. It is a very heavy nice quality ring. You will not be disappointed in the quality and style of this ring.
This was my first purchase from James Avery. I've always heard great things about the products and when my son saw this ring he immediately liked it and asked if we would purchase it for him to wear as his high school class ring. I purchased it on Saturday, gave it to my son that evening. By Sunday afternoon, the ring was tarnishing green on the inside of the band and turning his finger black. I'm disappointed, and not sure what to do about the ring...don't know if some kind of protective coating could've been applied to prevent this that I wasn't aware of. I could have spent far less money on a cheaper ring if I'd wanted one that would turn his finger green than what I spent on this one.
On the bright side, the store personnel were very polite and friendly, I have no complaints at all in that regard.
My old friend...
I purchased this ring in 1996 for myself. I had finally come to realize I was my own oldest best friend and I wanted to remind myself of the self-love the Lord had placed within my heart. I STILL wear this ring every single day without fail. It remains shiney, beautiful and cherished to me. It is now 2010 and this ring continues to draw compliments. I feel undressed without it on my hand. What an amazing purchase this one ring has been.
I purchased this ring for my husband this Father's Day. He isn't much of a jewelry person,but when I saw this piece, I knew he would love it.So I took a chance and purchased it anyway.And I was sooo right!!! He's worn it everyday since my son and I gave it to him..I had it engraved which made it all the more special..I would highly recommend this ring to anyone.This picture really doesn't do it justice.It looks so nice on my husbands finger,the quality is OUTSTANDING!!!
I never take it off!
I've been a fan of James Avery Jewelry for a number of years. This ring was the first piece of his I ever brought. Even though I have bought other rings, charms & pendants, this is the only piece I wear 24/7. I never ever take it off. Even thought its now a little worn with time & use, I still get compliments on it. Everyone loves it & thinks its great. You will too. Thanks James for all the wonderful years of pleasure you've give me with this ring. God Bless!!!
Easy to wear!
I have had this ring (in silver) for about eight years. I wear it at least once a week. It's a nice reminder of my faith, that I can see. (sometimes I neeed that) I wear it for fashion also . It looks so good with everything! It makes a great wedding band ,and I love to wear it that way too . This what I reach for when I'm worried I will damage my diamond ring. I garden in it (Iam very rough) ,and it still looks good enough to wear to a party on my right hand. I have recived MANY compliments on this piece from men and women. Infact, we gave one to a young friend for his confirmation. This ring is very sturdy and thick. It fits so well that I forget it's on my finger. This is one of my favorite gifts that my husband has ever bought for me.
FYI- I would go up 1/2 size in this one.
Buy it I did
This is a great ring for it's price and looks great. Fits a little loose but i have skinny hands but I love the ring so it's no big deal. A+
I bought this ring for my boyfriend and he loves it. Of course, he knew he was getting it but still it is what he really wants for Christms and I wanted it to be perfect. He already tried it on and it looks amazing on him. I love this ring!
A great ring!
My husband really liked this ring and wanted a different band to wear as his wedding band. He liked the show of faith and it is a very easy ring for him to wear.
Have worn this for years and it makes a quiet statement. It is W-I-D-E so fitting is tricky. I might not try to buy this particular one by mail for that reason only; otherwise it is a best buy.
Many compliments ...
more than once folks have recognized the ring AND the designer; other times I'm asked the background of the ring -- for me it fits in the category of 'if I was accused of being a Christian would there be enough evidence to convict me' ... I know, that's sad. Twice now I've given away this very same ring to bishops in Indonesia who had no rings so I am delighted to be able to spread the message. Peace everyone.
A simple gift
My best friend and I were looking for rings to kind of...exemplify our friendship I suppose? Anyways, we searched around for crosses, bracelets, all that good stuff. I've always been particularly fond of James Avery, so I took her there and we stumbled across the simple but elegant R-200 and R-200A, the slightly more narrow version of the wide crosslet ring. So we both got one and wear it on the same finger of the same hand. Great friendship ring. I've been wearing it for just over a year, and people say it still looks brand new. It's a beautiful ring (This coming from a boxer who doesn't wear jewelry) and apart from scratches showing (which is to be expected on a ring with so much blank space) it still looks great. Most people don't take advantage of the complimentary polishing that JAC does, but most scratches (unless you're ridiculously tough on your rings, which I don't think I am) come out when you take them to get polished. Great ring, plain and simple.
A lasting treasure
I received mine from a pastor friend in 1974 and I continue to get questions and compliments. It's a great conversation starter and a great gift.
This is a great ring; I absolutely love everything about it (except maybe the price...). Be careful: the first time I bought it, it was too large even though James Avery sent me the plastic ring fitters. My second attempt was much more successful. Regardless, it is a very unique product.
The ring looked great but I asked for his name engraved and centered inside the ring. It looks weird because the name is not centered; it's on the left side. Also the ring is very shiny and pretty, but be careful not to scuff it.
Simple but Elegant
I received this ring as a gift from my husband several years ago and rarely take it off. I wear it on the middle finger of my left hand and it is extremely comfortable even on my tiny, size 5, finger. All the gold makes the ring totally beautiful. There's a good reason why it is such a James Avery "classic."
