  • Amethyst: 2018 Color of the Year

     

    This February let's channel the late musical icon, Prince, and celebrate Purple Rain! Purple "Reign", that is! Per Pantone, the 2018 Color of the Year is Ultra Violet, and here at Day's Jewelers we are ready to "rock" the color purple. Of course, there is no greater month to for us to embrace Ultra Violet than February when birthstone Amethyst dominates the jewelry world.

    If you haven't already, very soon you will be seeing Ultra Violet everywhere. From furniture to hair color, candy packaging to cosmetics, clothing to vehicles, so I'm blogging to remind you to accessorize 2018 with amethyst!

    As part of the Quartz family, amethyst is abundant, low maintenance, durable, affordable, and a fabulous way to show off a highly fashionable jeweled look for a great price. One of my favorite ways to show off amethyst is by stacking Ed Levin handmade sterling silver bangles featuring our favorite purple gem!

     

    Tales have been told that supernatural powers have been linked to amethyst. For centuries, amethyst had been believed to heal and protect people from illnesses. Many even believed drinking alcoholic beverages served in amethyst cups would prevent drunkenness. While today we have modern medicine on our side, amethyst is still considered to be a healer of the body and soul through energy according to many who practice alternative medicine. Additionally, many millennials wear not only amethyst, but other Quartz crystals as well, for mental, physical, and spiritual intervention in their daily lives. Our new silver line, T. Jazelle, brings that trend to the our reality with The Cleo Collection, displaying singular cylindrical crystals on a 36 inch chain; and expansion bracelets with polished beads made out of genuine gemstones accessorized with a single silver charm.

     

    Guest Fashionista, Morgan Bouchard, formerly of the Topsham Day's Jewelers, was kind enough to put together outfit pairings featuring Ultra Violet for your style inspiration. To enhance these looks, come try on this east-to-west oriented oval amethyst and diamond necklace set in white gold on an 18 inch chain. Of course, you will also need to try on the matching pair of earrings where the oval amethyst are oriented North-to-South. Top off the jeweled pairing by wearing this ESTATE oval amethyst ring set in 14k white gold. You'll want to act fast on the ring, it's bold, beautiful, and a great big look - but we only have ONE in company and it's the only one we will ever have!

    So there you have it. Amethyst, the color of royalty, is the reigning "Prince" of 2018 thanks to Pantone and the color Ultra Violet. With Valentine's Day less than 2 weeks away, make sure to keep on trend by shopping for Amethyst. - And don't forget, if Ultra Violet is not your color, Forevermark diamonds go with everything!

  • A Day’s Jewelers Cliff's of Moher Proposal

    Day's Jewelers Proposal Story:

    Hi my nameimage2 is Michelle Devereux. My fiancé Ryan Sylvain proposed to me on June the 9, 2016 at the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. We have been together 2 and half years.

    image4

    I recently brought Ryan to Ireland for my cousins wedding. I moved to the USA with my parents when I was 7 but both my mother and father reside in Ireland. We traveled around Ireland for a few days with my brother and a couple of friends. Ryan carried the ring around with him while we were traveling and a few times he thought I was sure I would find out.

    image3On Thursday the 9th, on our last stop back to Cork, we visited the Cliff's of Moher. We were taking photos and laughing and the Ryan dropped to one knee. I remember he was nervously asking my brother for the ring, I remember spacing out into the ocean not believing this was happening. I thought I was in a dream. A wave of emotion came over me and I said yes while crying, but Ryan did this in a country (Ireland) that is so dear to my heart and will always be my home.

    He definitely put thought into and it will be a day I will never forget. Ryan told me that Day's Jewelers was great to work with and I felt so comfortable with Day's too. Our big day isn't till October 2018, but I wouldn't trade June 9th 2016 on the Cliff's of Moher for anything.

  • Eternity Takes Forever: Remembering 47 Years of Marriage

    The wedding band is representation of the eternal nature of true love. Like the circle of the band, the love of the married couple should have no end. I have never seen a truer example of this concept than in Mrs. Perry, who came into the Manchester store a few months back with a story filled with love, but also tinged with sadness.

    You see, Mrs. Perry has been married to the love of her life for forty-seven years. Unfortunately, in the last few years Mrs. Perry has had to watch helplessly as her husband has started to lose his memory, eventually needing to be placed in an elderly home. Now Mrs. Perry visits her husband and others in the home daily, and entertains them with songs
    out on the gazebo as well as with her impressive collection of unique hats. One day, the staff at the home noticed an infection forming on Mr. Perry’s ring finger, forcing them to have to remove his wedding band. Though his memory was failing, the band he remembered - he had never taken it off for even a day in all the last forty-seven years of marriage. Understandably, he was quite upset at having to give it up, but had Mrs. Perry there to support him every step of the way.

    dsc00289_-aNow, while we at Day’s Jewelers have not been able to nail down the cure to memory loss, we are able to help you find or design the perfect jewelry to help you remember. In fact, we were able to help Mrs. Perry find a way to wear both rings so as to further symbolize the love that is eternal between her and her husband. Mrs. Perry approached us with a unique idea of placing her husband’s band directly around her own engagement ring, so that the area that was cut would be open to allow her diamond to shine through. At first she was concerned that this would not be possible, but our talented jeweler, Hayward, took on the task with confidence and managed to solder the rings so snug as to make them seem as if they always were one piece.

    The look on Mrs. Perry's face when I presented her with the ring reminded me why I love working at Day’s Jewelers, because every day we facilitate the continuation of relationships that truly stand the test of time.

  • Eternity Takes Forever

    28873_20120731_172036_tumblr_m7txfire9c1rn1hbgo1_500One of the perks to selling jewelry (other than being constantly surrounded by sparkly things for a living) is being a part of so many different love stories. The proposals, the romance, the memories, and the overall experience of “forever” is really magical. I don’t want to oversell it or anything but having been in a long term relationship and then returning to single life I am here to tell you that true love is a sight to see. Granted, it is rare and it takes a lot of work, but I feel lucky to see it so often.

    I’ve worked at Day’s Jewelers since 2005, and in the past 9 years I have learned a lot about jewelry and romance and  feel like I have some secrets I can share. The hallmark lesson of love has to be that it takes a lot of work. Love isn’t easy but it is worth it. That’s why we are calling these Thursday “Relationship Advice” posts “Eternity Takes Forever.”

    If you’re new to our little blog, allow me to introduce myself. I’m Melissa, the resident Fashionista at Day’s Jewelers. I post all the pretty things to Facebook, blog for our Style File every Monday, and am one of our two Personal Shoppers.  I love my cats and long walks on the beach… just kidding… If I’m going to be on a beach I’m going to be laying out working on my tan…

    Every Thursday I will be sharing some of the secrets of love I’ve learned over the past 9 years as well as some tips and advice on topics like proposing, how to find the right ring, sending the hint when it’s time, and other topics related to romance and jewelry.

    For a little taste of what is to come on “Eternity Takes Forever,” check out my favorite blog from 2013, 5 Steps: Football to Forevermark. I wrote this to help women teach their men about Forevermark diamonds in terms most men love and understand – football. It being playoff time and all, now is the perfect time to give it a try with your Football Lover!

     

    dsc_4774I can’t wait to start writing these blogs and sharing stories with you! I want to hear about your love stories too… The good, the sappy, even the bad and the ugly- How did he propose? Where was your first date and why it was amazing?   What’s the funniest way you’ve broken up with a jerk? What’s the worst date you’ve ever been on? We might even do some contests with these stories where you can win some fabulous prizes, so send your story along to me at info@daysjewelers.com!
