Day's Jewelers was the topic of conversation in the Summer Issue of Dale Carnegie's Newsletter. Dale Caregie of Maine's C.E.O Dave Stearns described an experience he had with Corey Johnston at Day's Jewelers in South Portland.
I am spending more time lately with my 87 year old mother; precious time that I am valuing and appreciating more with each passing day. Recently she was rummaging through some old jewelry boxes and came across a pearl ring. She told me my father wore this ring on his pinky finger when he came home from the war with Japan in 1945. She said: "He took it off when he got home because he thought it was too fancy for a farm worker, and belonged on someone who had a cleaner and more executive job." She then said; "Would you like it?" I almost burst into tears as I slipped it onto my right pinky. It fit perfectly.
It has always been one of our missions at Day's to bring new and different jewelry and gemstones to our stores. We want our customers to find jewelry at Day's they can't find in the mall or other jewelry stores. One of the most important gemstone discoveries for us has been Larimar, a strikingly beautiful blue gemstone mined only on the Caribbean country of Dominican Republic.
Larimar was first discovered in 1916, but it wasn't until the 1970's that it was
After 32 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.
When it comes to anniversary jewelry though, I am a "seasoned
Tourmaline is one of Maine's richest treasures. Maine tourmaline was first discovered in 1820 when two boys hiking in the hills near Paris, Maine, noticed a green sparkle from the base of an uprooted tree. Little did they know that eventually this area would boast one of the largest finds of tourmaline in North America's history! Maine tourmaline was the first gemstone mined in the United States by miners, starting at Mount Mica, in 1822.In 1971, tourmaline was adopted as the official gemstone of Maine.
While Mount Mica was the first tourmaline mine in Maine, it is not the largest. The Dunton Mine is the most prolific
Some of my fondest summer memories are from Fourth of July festivities in my home town. There was a parade, street dances, food and craft vendors and of course, fireworks. To this day, when the Fourth approaches I look forward to celebrating the "birthday" of my country and I feel a special sense of Patriotism that, for so many of us, isn't always present in our everyday lives.
No matter how you celebrate the Fourth of July, it is all made possible by soldiers that fought to earn our freedom and then to maintain it through more than two centuries. Joe Corey, the manager of our
