Pave Diamond Accent Cross Ring
This is a striking looking ring, and I have had perfect strangers stop me in stores and comment on it. HOWEVER it is gold plated, and has a very very thing plating on it. The first one I purchased last year, lasted only several months before the plating wore off and you could see the underlying gun metal base. I contacted Blair and they quickly authorized a return, and sent me a new ring.
This ring should NOT be warn on a daily bases due to the extreme;y thing plating.
I decided to take it to my local jeweler and ask him to make an exact copy in 14 caret gold for me.
It is in the process of being made now.
I want a ring I can wear every day, without having to take it on and off to conserve the finish.
I would encourage Blair to ask the company that makes this ring to offer two options for it. One the lower priced and lower quality ring they presently offer, and one in either 10 or 14 caret gold at a much higher price.
I should have my exact copy back within a week to ten days and will most likely give the Blair ring to my church gift shop to give away or sell for a few dollars.
Please be careful with it, because it is so unique there is a tendency to want to wear it all the time, but if you do, you will soon find it turning to a base metal grey like I did.

I just received this ring today, only three days after ordering it. I have several other ten and 14 caret rings mostly with Jade stones. This ring out does them all. It is a bit smaller than I would like, but the diamonds are set wonderfully and outline the cross. In today's jewelry market with inflated prices this ring is excellent value and something I will be happy to wear every day.

This is a really nice piece of jewelry.
It runs true to size and is comfortable
on my finger. I like wearing it and I've
had several compliments on it.
