  • Why Forevermark?

    I’ve been asked many times, “Why is this Forevermark Diamond better than the GIA diamond I found online?

    My response; “That’s a great question!

    Well, let me start by saying… GIA is not a brand it is a report and just an opinion. I repeat… Just an opinion. Forevermark Diamonds are graded far beyond the 4’c, and who better to grade the diamond then De Beers. No one has touched, seen, or mined more diamonds in the history of the earth than De Beers. Each diamond has been carefully selected for its natural inherent beauty.

    Another question that comes up from time to time. “Is this a conflict diamond (blood diamond), and what does this do to the environment?” 

    Forevermark, as a part of the De Beers Group of Companies is committed to ensuring that each diamond from rough to polish has met strict standards and guidelines along its journey. With responsible business practices, the advancement of women, and protection of the natural world. For example, the 3 to 1 rule... For every 1 acre mined, 3 acres are set aside for conservation and natural wildlife sanctuaries.

    Recently a friend asked me, "Ray, how do I choose the perfect diamond?"

    In my opinion, it’s always best to purchase a diamond by looking at the diamond and multiple comparisons. Buy the diamond that speaks to you, never purchase a diamond by just reading its grading report. Two diamonds with the same 4c’s can and will look completely different. There is always a reason one is more valuable than the other. In most cases, you’ll be able to see that difference.

    Forevermark is committed to ensuring that you will see the difference.

    That’s why Days Jewelers is proud to be partnered with De Beers, and selected to be a part of that journey to offer the world’s most responsibly sourced, and most carefully selected diamonds.

  • Time and Eternity Jewelry for Mother's Day

    Let Mom know you'll love her for all of Time and Eternity! Through the twists and turns of motherhood, interwoven rings represent her love. The diamond at the center, like Mom, holds everything together because to Mom: family is everything. Each piece in our Time and Eternity Collection features a Northern Star diamond.
    Time and Eternity Collection Shop Button
    What makes a Northern Star diamond so special?
    Every Northern Star diamond has 90 facets, 32 more than a traditional diamond. The extra facets, requiring additional time, craftsmanship, and expertise, help to prevent light from “leaking” out of the back of the diamond. These strategic cuts maximize the amount of light that is returned to the viewer making it visibly brighter.
    Show Mom how special she is with a Time & Eternity piece of jewelry featuring a beautiful Northern Star diamond.

  • Style File: Scarves and Jewelry, Oh My!

    1239704_561780586838_127813732_nThis style file is going to be quick and simple today...the title says it all "scarves and jewelry - oh, my!"

    For those that know me I am a scarf-aholic. Honestly, I have an addiction that might cause me to go to meetings soon. Let’s put it this way, one of my bucket list items is to own 200 scarves, yes that’s a real goal (currently I have about 40, clearly more than enough, but a girl has to collect something!).

    So, the fun thing about scarves is that you can dress up or down any outfit with them. You can have so much fun with scarves: add color, add patterns, add it for a new look to an old outfit. Well, like scarves, jewelry is an accessory to add color, patterns or freshen up a new look! Ah…you didn’t think about it that way did you? No one said you had to buy a $1000 ring (you certainly can if you'd like), but if you have a cute new outfit, you can surely treat yourself to a $50-$100 ring (or even earrings) for it!

    Because scarves have become such a large part of fashion, earrings are now bigger, longer and more colorful. Rings are also becoming bigger. You'll see more cocktail type rings are showing up on the runways. This is so jewelry can still stand out against the scarves (ok, that's not the only reason, but it works).

    What does that mean for you? It means we can have fun with scarves, earrings and rings - oh my! And, guess what, I put together some fun pieces that would work with any scarf look...I got your back.

     

    See quick and simple...this was more like a Style File tip - scarves = big earrings and rings! 

    Oh and the picture is my version of me saying, "scarves and jewelry - oh my!" ...but also showcasing a scarf with big hoop earrings wonderfully! 

    Until next monday.

  • Spotlight on Chatham Jewelery

    Chatham. The name alone sparks beautiful images of flowing designs and stunning gemstones. In 1931, Carroll Chatham discovered that he could grow a crystal with the same chemical composition as a naturally occurring gemstone. The Chatham collection combines gemstones and diamonds with precious metals in eye catching designs that make a statement. Chatham creates pendants, necklaces, earrings and rings.

    There is one question that always prevails when talking about Chatham gemstones: are they real or fake? Chatham gemstones are cultured - similar to cultured pearls. They are not fake or simulated stones, they are grown in a cultured environment that allow for the gemstones to grow. The only difference is that the environment is manmade and not naturally made. These are real gemstones. Below are some of my favorite Chatham pieces. To learn more about Chatham, visit www.daysjewelers.com.

    chatham_cultured_created_padparadscha_necklace_in_14kt_white_gold_with_diamonds chatham_cultured_created_ruby_ring_in_14kt_white_gold_with_diamonds chatham_cultured_created_sapphire_ring_in_14kt_white_gold_with_diamonds_21

    Each of these designs speaks to the craftsmanship and creativity of the Chatham line. A piece of Chatham jewelry would be the topic of conversation due to its beauty and uniqueness. The necklace is a created Padparadscha - which is actually an orange sapphire! The ring in the middle is a rationally created blue sapphire and the bottom ring is a breathtaking created ruby. These pieces are beautiful in pictures, but there is nothing like seeing them in person. The quality is unmistakable and colors are so vibrant that they would be a perfect bold, statement-making piece of jewelry that is a must have in every jewelry box.
