18K Gold Plate Irish Claddagh Birthstone Ring (1 Stone)
I bought this ring for my daughter's sixteenth birthday and in LESS THAN A WEEK, the plating was rubbing off!

When I saw online the price of this ring, and how beautiful it was, I immediately wanted to buy it. I was getting it for myself, since I wanted a new GOLD claddagh ring, because I prefer gold over silver. I am a college student, so I wanted to buy something that I could afford. It took a while for the ring to arrive in the mail, but once I saw it and had it on my finger, I loved it. It was a great size for my finger, since I have rather small fingers and hands.
A couple weeks later, I started to get disappointed and annoyed because the band of the ring started to turn silver. I thought it was because something I did was making it do that, or I was just rubbing it against something too much. Then, everyday that I checked to see if the fading of the gold had stopped, I noticed it was doing to exact opposite. More and more of the gold was coming off, and the diamond stone I had on it was getting cloudy.
This purchase has disappointed me greatly. It is sad, because I love Zales. None of the other rings I have ever bought have done this, but it still is bothersome. Hopefully nothing like this happens again with a Zales purchase.
