  • Announcement! New Styles Available for Your Man

    Guest blogger: Jessi Eyre, Marketing & PR Specialist at Lashbrook

    Attention brides and grooms! We have the coolest gent’s rings now available at Day’s Jewelers. These new styles from Lashbrook are truly one of a kind. Check them out below!

    Meteorite.

    These Meteorite rings by Lashbrook feature authentic Gibeon Meteorite. Gibeon Meteorite exploded upon entering Earth’s atmosphere, landing in the desert of Namibia, Africa in scattered pieces over an area 171 miles long and 62 miles wide. The Namibian government banned the export of Gibeon Meteorite, as any newly discovered pieces are automatically protected as national monuments. This means that any meteorite specimens in circulation are of increasing value and incredibly limited supply.

    This rare type of meteorite is composed of metals which were formed in a super-heated state and cooled over the course of four billion years. This slow cooling settled the molecules in a unique crystalline structure, similar to what you’d see in a diamond or gemstone. Because Meteorite is a natural material, each Meteorite ring will be unique with now two rings being identical.

    These new Meteorite styles look cool regardless of what the base metal is. Pictured from left to right: Cobalt Chrome, Rose Gold, black Zirconium, Cobalt Chrome.

    Damascus Steel.

    Damascus Steel rings by Lashbrook are made by hand, mimicking ancient metalsmithing techniques originally used to make samurai swords. Using two alternating types of stainless steel, Lashbrook master craftsman heat, bond, twist and fold the metal layers together to produce vivid patterns. After patterning the metal, there can be up to 100 layers in each piece of finished Damascus. Because it is handmade, each Damascus Steel ring is unique – no two designs will look exactly alike.

    These Damascus Steel styles hold that ‘wow’ factor and are going to be a crowd favorite in no time. Pair your favorite style with precious metal, such as the White or Rose Gold inlays.

    Hardwood.

    Lashbrook uses ethically sourced Hardwood for wood rings. Each piece of hardwood varies slightly in character, color, and grain pattern, ensuring every wood ring is truly one of a kind. Wood’s raw, organic nature and inherent beauty is both rustic and refined. Its rich origin and exclusive markings speak to its distinctness amongst traditional metal wedding bands.

    These slick hardwood bands are for the guys that want to stand out. Pictured: black Zirconium with Leopard wood, Cobalt Chrome with Honduras Redheart and Damascus Steel with Mexican Cocobollo wood.

  • What Gemstones and Metals are Good for Everyday Wear?

    acar_colored_diamonds_01_hEvery person likes something different when they are looking for fashion pieces of jewelry. Customers like different shapes and colors of stones along with different metals. There are certain metals and stones that can be worn on an everyday basis with no real potential for damage and then there are stones that should be worn with a bit more care and a little less often.

    deqt0115_1_1Stones that can be worn everyday with little or no worry to you, the customer, are Diamonds, Sapphires, Rubies, and Topaz. The gemstones that need to be worn more carefully due to their hardness and wear ability are Pearls, Opals, Jades, Aquamarines, and Onyx. These gemstones should be the last thing that you put on after getting dressed and the first thing taken off at night. They should also never be worn to go swimming or to do yard work or clean.

    jerkt3493_1There are multiple different metals that can be worn on a daily basis. Gold, Platinum and Silver can all be worn on a daily basis. Silver is softer than gold and if worn with stones in it, should be worn with some precaution. A lot of fashion pieces lately are made from base metals (such as Alex and Ani style bracelets), these should be worn with the knowledge that they can break and are not able to be fixed by most jewelers.

    There is no reason for not wearing the jewelry, diamonds, and gemstones that you enjoy. Taking precautions with certain pieces and making sure to store them correctly while they are not being worn is a great way to ensure the longevity of your piece. Always store Sterling Silver pieces in an air tight bag while they are not being worn, also try to keep pieces with gemstones from rubbing against each other while being stored to prevent scratches or abrasions on the stone surface. Taking these little steps will help to make sure that you can enjoy your piece for a long time.
