    The art of collaboration goes to the Movado Edge designed with Yves Béhar, infusing a modern icon with stunning dimension an texture.

    E-Blast EDGE 3680010 SHOWN: MEN'S STAINLESS STEEL BRACELET CHRONOGRAPH

    Movado Edge interprets the iconic Museum Dial through a heightened industrial design lens, characterized by a new, visually tactile form. The iconic dial takes dimensional form. The dot rises from the dial's surface. Sculpted linear ridges suggesting the sun’s rays subtly mark the minutes.

    The dial reinterprets Horwitt’s original vision in a three-dimensional representation with the dot rising from the dial’s curved, newly textured landscape. Sculpted linear peaks that form around the edge of the dial suggest the sun’s rays, while subtly marking the minutes – a beautiful and purposeful design element.

  • Aquаmаrinе - Thе Birthѕtоnе оf Mаrch

    The wearing of birthstones is thought to bring good luck and good health. Astrologers long ago attributed supernatural powers to certain gemstones.

    Named after seawater, Aquamarine’s fresh watery hue is a cool plunge into a refreshing pool.  From the light blue of the sky to the deep blue of the sea, the aquamarine shines over an extraordinarily beautiful range of mainly light blue colors.  It is the birthstone of March and thought to enhance the happiness of marriages and the lucky crystals for the people of Pisces.  It is also the symbol of a 19th wedding anniversary.

    The greenish blue Aquamarine protects those who journey by sea, alleviating the fear of water and guards those involved in any long travel such as flying or driving long distances.

  • AMETHYST – BIRTHSTONE FOR FEBRUARY

    The amethyst is the birthstone for February and the symbol of a 6th wedding anniversary. The purple Amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary powers to stimulate and soothe the mind and emotions. It is the stone of friendship, has miraculous powers and brings good fortune.

    Amethyst pic

    The color of royalty, the amethyst goes back to ancient times where it was used on monarchs’ crowns, as well on stately rings, necklaces and earrings. It has been popular throughout history especially with British and Egyptians. It is also significant in religious motifs and worn by Catholic bishops to symbolize humility, piety and spiritual wisdom.

    The color purple is believed to bring sweet dreams, deep sleep and used in meditation and healing. Today, the amethyst is very popular in diamond jewelry.

    The Green Amethyst connects to the heart and creates a spiritual link with nature. The green amethyst may begin its life as a purple amethyst. “Prasiolite” or green amethyst is a yellowish green to green material that is produced when natural purple amethyst is heated or irradiated creating the green color.

    The green amethyst is becoming very popular in today’s jewelry fashions. Shop our collection here: http://www.daysjewelers.com/all-featured/amethyst

  • The perfect Christmas Card Photo proposal

    Tianna loves to have one formal picture of her little family once a year, so it had become tradition to have a photographer take a Christmas Card Photo. In early November 2015 - the booked photographer had called & cancelled. Tianna was away for work and panicked. Joey reassured her that he would find a photographer and date that would work in their busy schedules. The day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday) he arranged for them to go to a Christmas Tree Farm to take their annual Christmas Card Photo.  That morning  Tianna went off to get her hair done leaving her mom, who was up from Florida, and him at their house.

    image2 The adorable Joey and Tianna!

    Joey and Tianna's mom, Cherie, plotted as they knew Tianna would want pictures of the day she got engaged and of course she would want her hair and makeup done. So alas, surprising her during the Christmas card photo shoot was the perfect time.

    Joey was calm, and hid the ring in an extra pair of shoes he brought. If you know Joey - this wouldn't be a surprise he didn’t want an option of shoes. Then, about when the dogs were going crazy, Tianna suggested that they get a few pictures of just them. Just in case none of the photos with the puppies came out.

    So he tied the dogs up, getting the ring at the same time, and then asked if we could switch sides. Again, if you know Joey you would know Tianna didn't think this was weird at all. Joey knows his good side! 😉 Literally, she still had no clue!

    image4 The perfect proposal for Joey and Tianna.

    When Tianna looked back around, Joey was on one knee. Tianna gasped and Joey says about 5,000 emotions ran over her face. Joey said "You are my partner in our life adventure, and I never want that to end. I love you, will you marry me?" Tianna cried, kissed his face, and said "YES, OF COURSE!"

    image3 Tianna's sparkling ring

    The diamond engagement ring was the exact diamond engagement ring she had dreamed of and they even went that same evening to get the matching wedding band because Tianna was so scared Day's Jewelers would no longer carry it! She has the perfect fiancée and perfect diamond engagement ring from Day's Jewelers!

    The happy couple is getting married 11/16/2016 in Vero Beach, Florida.

    Congratulations from Day's Jewelers and we wish you the best in your sparkling life together!!

  • The importance of creating sunshine for others at Day’s Jewelers

    We believe that jewelry should go “Beyond Beauty” and help to make the world around us a better place to live. Day’s is committed to many programs that support good things in our local communities, nationally and internationally. It is this commitment that fostered our relationship with Camp Sunshine beginning in 2013.

    In 2013 Jeweler’s for Children, an organization established by the jewelry industry to benefit local charities, announced their local grant program asking jewelers to nominate a local children’s charity for the chance to win a $10,000 grant. The program was designed as a facebook contest with the top ten vote getters to receive the grant.  We chose Camp Sunshine, a one-of-a-kind retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families in Casco, Maine.

    Since then the hard-working individuals at Day’s Jewelers and Camp Sunshine have helped get the vote winning $30,000 in a three-year period.

    days_check_logo Day's Jewelers presenting the $10,000 check after volunteering at Camp Sunshine in the summer of 2016.

    Each year, the grant money has gone directly to Camp Sunshine’s Family Sponsorship program.

    One of the families the Jewelers for Children grant sponsored in 2015 was 8-year-old Derek and his family. After being diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2014 and undergoing 18 months of chemotherapy, Derek is now faced with a condition called Optic Nerve Atrophy, which can cause blindness.

    “Derek’s sibling Marcy is 14. Camp Sunshine is like a ‘little slice of Heaven’ to us. We are able to unwind and put the anxiety and worry on the back burner and relate to other families. We had a lot of fun watching our children smile and just have a good time. Thank you for giving us this amazing opportunity,” said Derek’s mother.

    In 2016 Day’s Jewelers employees were given the opportunity to spend the day volunteering at Camp Sunshine, spending a day with the children.  The experience was heartwarming to all.

    “To be able to see the joy in every child’s face and the support of those around them was truly an unforgettable experience. I was able to explore the camp on a scavenger hunt with a group of children with a life threatening illness who laughed and saw no hate in this world, but thrived and lived in each day treasuring every moment. This to me is why I vote every year, to bring this joy to a child who may otherwise not be able to attend Camp Sunshine,” explained Day’s Jewelers Marketing Coordinator Amanda Nadeau

    “The important connections that are fostered when a family walks through one of Camp Sunshine’s three, iconic front doors does not happen without the kindness and support of many people, including our generous donors, volunteers and families,” explained Camp Sunshine’s Executive Director Michael Katz. “There is nothing more inspiring than to have a family share with us that Camp Sunshine has changed their lives and in some instances saved their lives,” Katz continued. “We are so thankful to Day’s Jewelers and Jewelers for Children for helping us continue to create sunshine for these families.”

    We at Day’s Jewelers are truly thankful for the opportunity to nominate Camp Sunshine again this year and ask for your votes.  Voting ends November 18th 2016.

    Don’t lust after pricey celebrity jewels; make your own mark on fashion with gorgeous styles from CRISLU.

    When I first began writing marketing descriptions for Day’s, my untrained eye was having difficulty telling the difference between diamonds and cubic zirconia.  I was amazed at all the sparkle and shimmer of cubic zirconia which are man made flawless stones that look like diamonds but cost a lot less.  They may not be rare or carry the meaning that goes with real diamonds, but Crislu, one of Day’s leading designers of cubic zirconia jewelry, features affordable luxury designs with high style and exquisite quality.

    This exquisite blue and white cubic zirconia necklace and earring set brings alive the magical character of fine jewelry for today’s woman.  The light blue of the sky and the deep blue of the ocean combine to create the color in this beautiful Crislu Serenity cubic zirconia necklace and earring set. Sparkling white cz's halo the pear shaped gemstones and shimmer in the necklace's and earrings’ design.

  • Day’s Jewelers picked as Maine Retailer of the Year

    The Waterville-based chain was lauded for its charitable giving and continued growth.

    The Retail Association of Maine has named Day’s Jewelers as its Retailer of the Year.

    Maine Retailer of year

    The trade group, which represents 400 businesses in Maine, announced the selection of the Waterville-based jewelry chain Thursday. The award will be presented at the association’s annual meeting Oct. 27 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Freeport.

     “Day’s was chosen for its reputation as a growing family business, patient and careful long term growth, social, ethical and environmental responsibility, and staff development procedures,” according to a release from the association. “Day’s Jewelers’ values aligned perfectly with the award criteria and they were unanimously selected as this year’s recipient.”

    The annual award is given to a Maine retailer that demonstrates continued growth in employees or sales; commitment of company resources to community projects; and creation of a positive work environment.

    Day’s was one of the first jewelers in America, and one of only six independent companies in the United States to achieve certification by the Responsible Jewellery Council, a nonprofit organization that established a set of best practice business standards and audits for the global jewelry industry, according to the release.

    In the last few years, Day’s Jewelers has worked collaboratively with their staff, customers and suppliers to donate to more than 40 charitable organizations and has developed a program, called “Diamonds for Peace” to help Mainers in need by donating $10 for each loose diamond or piece of diamond jewelry sold, said the release.

    Day’s was also lauded for growing a family-owned enterprise in a competitive industry dominated by large corporate chains.

    “It is a true honor for our company to be named as Retailer of the Year,” said President David Harris in the release. “Kathy, Jeff and Jim (Corey) have come a long way from their humble beginnings in Madawaska and Fort Kent to make Day’s one of the most respected retailers in the U.S. jewelry industry. It has been a pleasure to work in a company where customers and employees are treated like part of the family.”

    Day’s operates seven stores, and recently opened a new location in Augusta.

    The retail association has bestowed its retailer of the year honor every year since 1980.
