In February of 2019, Day’s Jewelers acquired nearly 3,700 carats of the last remaining mined Maine tourmaline from the Western Hills of Maine. The 3,700 carats are made up of both rough and polished gems – ranging in color from green, pink, bicolor, and amongst the rarest, indicolite tourmaline, which is a captivating deep blue. The investment was significant, but with the future of Maine tourmaline an uncertain one, Day’s jumped at the chance to ensure our customers will be able to purchase beautiful Maine tourmaline jewelry for generations to come.

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, and as part of this month of recognition, a fundraising event happens every year on June 21. The Longest Day, an event signifying the care and patience that is required of cherished Alzheimer’s caretakers, occurs on the literal longest day of the year, the summer solstice. The number of fundraising events that will occur on June 21 vary; participants are encouraged to be creative in their events and meet the biggest goal possible. From the Longest Day’s website: “The Longest Day is the day with the most light — the summer solstice. On June 21, thousands of participants from across the world come together to fight the darkness of Alzheimer's through an activity of their choice. Together, they use their creativity and passion to raise funds and awareness for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.”
The battle to cure Alzheimer’s is a personal one

Pearls are the only gemstones to be formed by a living creature in a process that can take years in the wild. Without human interference, pearls develop when a tiny irritant- a grain of sand, a shard of pebble- enters the inside of an oyster. That irritant stimulates the pearl to protect its soft flesh by covering the grain of sand with a layer of nacre, a milky-white fluid that hardens over time. The oyster continuously covers that grain of sand with nacre, growing a precious pearl over months and years. The end result is a gorgeous, luminous little gemstone that’s pried out of an oyster and made suitable for jewelry.
The process behind growing pearls has been mastered by human beings. Pearl farmers use a tiny bead, most often a mother-of-pearl shard or something simil
