  • Its a Boy! ...And a Diamond Ring?

    Diamond rings, birthstone jewelry and a baby!

    rpdd0292_1Push Presents are one of the newest trends in the American jewelry culture this year.  The "Push Present" is an idea that the father of a baby should give the baby's mother a gift after pending the birth of a child.  The gift can be given before the child is born or after; some are given right in the delivery room!

    Originating in England and India, push presents, also known as push gifts, began getting more popular in the United States in recent years.  Gifts could include designer diamond rings, pearl strands, right hand rings, sterling silver earrings, or any type of jewelry that the father wishes to give.  Birthstone jewelry is another popular item to commemorate the birth of the couple's child.  The trend has been passed mostly via word of mouth from one couple to the next.

    At survey of over 300,000 new mothers was conducted in 2007 and it revealed that almost 40% of them has received a gift from the father of their child.  Some mothers say that receiving a gift after giving birth is one that you will never repladeoc0161ce or forget; while others say that simply holding their child after birth is enough of a gift.  Some jewelry stores are creating a Push Present registry, (similar to Day's Jewelers own Ladies' Night Wish Lists) so that the men in their lives know exactly what she wants post birth.  Or jewelry stores have been toying with the idea in clever advertising such as, "She just delivered your child; Now give her Twins" featuring a pair of diamond stud earrings.

    So to give or not to give is the question.  What do you think? Should a woman giving birth receive a gift after giving through 9 months of carrying a child and labor and delivery or is worlds' greatest gift the end result?

  • The Hercules Knot: The Story Behind the Everlon Design

    dsqt0503_1-resized-600.jpgThe Everlon Diamond Knot jewelry collection is one of the most popular trends in jewelry today. The Everlon diamond Knot design is an artistic representation of the Hercules Knot - one of the strongest knots that can be tied.  According to the Ancient Romans, this knot was tied around the waist of a new bride and only her husband had the privilege to untie it.  A symbol for love and strength, this design is meant to bring happiness to its wearer. Knots are meant to be binding, just as the marriage of a man and woman is.

    dptd0048_1jilledit-resized-600.jpgEverlon has added a stylish new element to the traditional knot.  By including a diamond at the center of the knot, Everlon has created not only a symbolic masterpiece, but a piece of art as well. The diamond is the strongest gemological material known to man and by placing it in the center of the knot, it only grows stronger.  Everlon offers products in Sterling silver, White Gold and Yellow Gold as well as rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Representing the unbreakable bond of love between a man and a woman, the  Diamond Knot Collection is sure to please.

  • How to Clean Gemstone and Pearl Jewelry

    How to Clean your Gemstone Jewelry

    Gemstone jewelry should be worn and enjoyed. Yet, like anything precious to us, it should be treated gently and with respect.

    • Cleaning jewelry with Day’s Jewelry Cleaner or with mild dish soap in warm water is the best way to keep your jewelry clean at home.
    • You can use a toothbrush to scrub behind the stone where dust, dirt and soap film may collect.

    How to Clean your Pearl Jewelry

    jerpl1108b When cleaning your pearl jewelry, we suggest wiping pearls with a soft cloth after you wear them. This will ensure they remain free of harmful build-up of these compounds.

    • Always keep your pearl jewelry separated from gemstone, diamond and gold jewelry items to prevent them from being scratched.
    • Pearls are best kept in a soft cloth pouch or a soft lined jewelry box.

    jpl240071If you wear your pearls often, they should be restrung about once a year to prevent strand breakage. The thread should be knotted between each pearl to prevent all the pearls in a strand from falling off should a break occur. Individual knotting also prevents possible damage from pearls from rubbing together.

    If you are ever out and about, stop by your local jeweler or Day’s store and we would be more than happy to buff, clean and inspect your pearl and gemstone jewelry at no cost, any time.

  • Is Reactor Watch Right for You?

    The REACTOR Watch...

    I first met Jimmy Olmes at the jewelry show in Las Vegas 3 years ago. The entrepreneur recounted a fascinating story of how he invented Reactor watches. He is one of the most passionate and tenacious men I know.

    Jimmy spent 20 years of his life creating and building the Freestyle watch line which was an inexpensive timepiece used primarily by surfing enthusiasts. Jimmy sold the company and in 2002 set out to build the “best performance sports watch on the planet”…REACTOR.

    In 2003, REACTOR was born. After spending 2 hours with Jimmy, I knew this was a watch line I wanted in all Day’s stores. Here are a few features of REACTOR and why it is a great watch for anyone:

    • wreg0037Superluminova is the material most often used to make a watch dial light up in darkness. It is very bright early in the evening, but fades as the night wears on.
    • Tritium is another material used to light up a watch dial. It is not as bright as Superluminova, but does not fade.
    • REACTOR’s “Never Dark” technology features both materials on watch dials.
    • The average watch bracelet will separate from the watch with more than 20 pounds of pressure. The REACTOR watch bracelet will withstand over 200 pounds.
    • REACTOR's Poseidon dive watch goes up to 1000M
    • REACTOR's Graviton, has 275 of North America's premiere fishing locales pre-programmed, moon phase, sunrise and sunset indicators as well as a tidal flow graph for a quick check of the tidal state.

    wreg0041Learn more about the story behind this amazing timepiece here.

    Father’s Day, Graduation, birthday or just beacause…..a REACTOR watch is a great gift because it will last a lifetime.

    Please feel free to email me any time with your questions.

    • Nothing else has consistently increased in value over the years as have diamonds.Even during times of economic depression, diamonds have always appreciated in value.
    • There is no other purchase you can make that can be cherished and enjoyed from generation to generation and still look as beautiful it did the first day.
    • Diamond is the hardest substance on Earth. It will survive earthquakes, volcanoes, catastrophic fires, and even nuclear explosions. It is no wonder why diamonds are the symbol of eternal love.
