  • Time and the Rhyme

    I appreciate brands that are trying to solve solutions for many aspects of one’s life. Shinola is doing just that. Not only do they build goods in the USA, they are doing it in style. From small leather goods, to bikes, to turntables they are offering modern designs you can feel good about owning. Shinola watches are built in Detroit with Swiss and imported parts. Of all the products Shinola makes, the return of manufacturing jobs is the thing they are post proud of.

    We carry many of their watches and they are super classy, let me tell you.

    Check out this Maya Angelou Special Edition. A great tribute that comes with a leather journal filled with her poetry. Know the time and the rhyme...

  • My 25th Anniversary and Day's Jewelers

    high_school_sweetheart_love_quotesI have a true belief that behind every piece of jewelry a woman owns there is a story that is so personal that no two stories will ever be the same. This is the story of my favorite 2 pieces of jewelry, the wonderful man who gave them to me, and the incredible relationship we as a couple have developed with Day's Jewelers over time.

    I married my high school sweetheart many years ago, when I was still in my teens and he was not much older. I know now that is not the way things are done, but 30 plus years ago
    it seemed like the right thing to do at the time.  Needless to say, we had less than nothing with a growing family so, quality jewelry was not even a thought.

    We both had a great work ethic and as the children grew up we were able to purchase a home. Our first Christmas together in our new home was wonderful.  The kids were up at dawn and the snow was falling and I thought it could not get any better than this.  At that moment my husband presented me with my first jewelry gift from Day's Jewelers. It was the most beautiful gold chain I have ever seen.  This was the start of the wonder relationship we developed with Day's. For every special occasion gift we had to purchase, Day's Jewelers was
    always our first stop.

     

    rwbd3444_1Over the years our children grew and the nest got empty. All of a sudden we were approaching our twenty fourth anniversary.  My husband went back to Day's Jewelers to find the perfect anniversary gift.  What he found was the most beautiful 10 stone 1ct.t.w. 14k white gold diamond anniversary ring to take the place of the original ring that was getting worn and thin. This ring was and still is one of the most beautiful rings I have ever seen.  The quality is amazing and over the next year I received more compliments than you could imagine.

    Which brings us to our twenty fifth anniversary. Back to Day's Jewelers my husband goes. He lets our Diamond specialist know how happy I was with the diamond anniversary ring he bought the year before. That is when she suggested a beautiful 3 stone diamond past present and future ring to go along with the wedding band. Our sales associate made sure that my new ring was made by the same manufacture as my band and every stone matched in color and clarity. Her attention to detail was amazing.  I will never forget that anniversary or the quality of service Day's Jewelers provided us. Both of these rings I will cherish forever.

  • The Jewelry Box: Marriage Celebration

    After 32 ½ years of being married to the same man, I consider myself a “seasoned amateur” on the topic of marriage.  Young couples often ask me what the secret is to a happy life with the same person.  I respond with quote from a Lebanese immigrant artist and prophet Khalil Gibran, who said, “Eat together but not of the same loaf.”  In more than 3 decades, I have come to understand the meaning of this quote is to share your experiences with each other but not lose sight of what makes each of you who you are. After all, you fell in love with each other for a reason.

    rwbd2771_1When it comes to anniversary jewelry though, I am a “seasoned professional.” The marriage takes work. Finding the gift to celebrate it should be easy. While diamond jewelry is more desired as an anniversary gift than any other luxury good, two-thirds of American wives have never received a diamond for their anniversary. So even if she hasn’t told you that a diamond anniversary ring is on her mind, I will.

    A diamond anniversary band is not just another gift. Giving a diamond commemorates the love you share for each other, and it has the potential to become a family heirloom. The love, struggles, and memories of a marriage aren’t just shared by the married couple. They are shared by the couple’s children, grandchildren, and all of the other descendants that were only made possible by the fact that two people fell in love and had the strength to weather the years together and build a legacy that will carry on long after they are gone.

    Sixty-five percent of married Americans say they plan to give or receive diamond anniversary jewelry each year, but only six percent do. That six percent can tell you that while celebrating their marriage was a momentous occasion, the diamond jewelry they received will be loved and cherished long after they celebrated that anniversary. A diamond can become part of every momentous occasion that follows the anniversary, from the birth of a first child, to the birth of a first grandchild and everything in between and beyond.

     

    dpcl1870_11Truthfully, what do I know about the secret to a happy marriage, other than appreciating your life every day and finding the humor in even the most dismal situations. Seriously, sometimes we over complicate things and need to stop and recognize that celebrating marriage is commemorative and a worthy accomplishment.

    This anniversary, take it from a “seasoned amateur” and give a gift that will last the lifetime you build together. Give the gift of diamonds that will become heirlooms to be passed down to your daughters and their daughters and all of the generations that your love set in motion.

     

  • 5 Ways to Say "I Love You"

    Je t'aime, Te amo, Koselmol (Go-zell-mull), Ich liebe dich...I love you.

    We picked out a few items that are a great way to say "I love you." Many of the items that we feature have a story behind them. Day's Jewelers believes jewelry is a sentimental gift, one that has the ability to be an heirloom within your family for generations to follow; a piece that will create a story of its own between mother and daughter, or grandmother and granddaughter.

    Everlon Love Knot Collection
    : The Everlon Diamond Knot Collection offers simple, timeless and elegant designs. The Everlon collection features the Hercules knot, the ancient symbol of strength that represents the unbreakable bond of love.

    comu_dste0561_blog2012Forevermark Diamond Collection: Forevermark diamonds are genuine, untreated and natural. Their beauty is unleashed by the world's finest craftsmen using skill and artistry.  Each Forevermark diamond comes with a promise, inscribed at its very heart.

    Circle Collection: Circles are the symbols of unending love. Circles commonly represent unity and wholeness. Without beginning or end, without sides or corners, the circle is also associated with the number one.

    Heart Collection: Hearts are a symbol for love, charity, joy and compassion. A heart with an arrow through it represents directed energy, flow, or penetration (a relationship with Cupid, god of love).

    Infinity Collection: Infinity refers to something without any limit, as in an endless love. The English word infinity derives from Latin infinitas, which translated is "unboundedness," itself derived from the Greek word apeiros, meaning "endless." But you probably knew that.

    This Valentine's Day, tell her you love her in the way that fits your love. Valentine's is Thursday, February 14th (just a friendly reminder). We also know that women don't want chocolate, flowers and gift cards, they want something from the heart (or knot, or circle).
