  • 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!



  • Platinum - A Diamond’s Best Friend

    Platinum – A Diamond’s Best Friend. Surveys reveal that more than 80% of women looking to be engaged, prefer Platinum for their engagement ring setting. This highly desirable and precious metal is the best compliment to a diamond because it is Pure, Rare and Eternal.

    Purest and Rarest of Metals

    Typically, a piece of platinum jewelry is made up of 95% precious platinum. Compared to 14K gold which is 58.5% gold, or 18K gold which is 75% gold, platinum’s purity makes it naturally hypoallergenic especially for those with sensitive skin. Platinum is 30 times more rare than gold, which is why the world’s finest diamonds and gemstones were only set in platinum.


    Naturally White and Never Fades
    Platinum’s everlasting white metal never reflects color into the diamond it showcases. Unlike white gold that requires rhodium plating every 12-18 months, platinum will never fade or change color. Platinum is eternally white.


    Durable and Made for Everyday Wear
    Platinum’s strength and durability makes it the most secure setting for diamonds and gemstones. Platinum’s density makes platinum highly durable, so it doesn’t wear over time. Platinum is simply the best option, especially when selecting your engagement rings or wedding bands.


    My Story
    My diamond engagement ring is designed in Platinum. After nearly 32 years, my ring has never required metal repair or metal rebuilding. The beautiful everlasting white hue remains, as it did the first day I received it.  At Day’s Jewelers, I oversee the selection and purchasing of all jewelry in our 7 store locations. I’ve also seen the remarkable benefits in lifelong wear of platinum jewelry, from our customers who have chosen platinum. For that reason, I recommend platinum as the first choice. Platinum is everlasting and it stands the test of time. Make it your choice.

  • 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!


    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.


    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.

  • Day’s Jewelers Selected Among Best Places to Work in Maine for a Third Year

    Day’s Jewelers was recently named as one of the 2017 Best Places to Work in Maine. The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of the Society for Human Resource Management - Maine State Council (MESHRM) and Best Companies Group. Partners endorsing the program include: Mainebiz, the Maine State Chamber of Commerce and Maine HR Convention.

    Kathy, Jeff and Jim Corey, owners of Day’s Jewelers, have truly created a business that makes its employees proud. “Kathy, my brother Jim and I were raised in the St. John Valley in Northern Maine where family is such an important part of the local culture. The three of us, along with my 5 other siblings, worked together in my Mom and Dad’s business, Robert’s Jewelry in Madawaska. Family has always been important to us. As we’ve built Day’s over the years, it was our goal to create a family environment among our staff,” says Jeff Corey.

    Kathy Corey thanks her employees for this award which has been claimed in 2014, 2015 and now 2017. “Receiving this award is truly an honor, but mostly it’s a tribute to the 140 employees who work at Day’s.  They are the real heroes.”

    Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Maine. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings.

    Day’s Jewelers Human Resources Director Kristie Jandreau knows exactly how this award was earned., “It’s because of what we do and, most importantly, why we do it. We are surrounded by beautiful gems, sparkling diamonds, and the latest fashion accessories. We spend our work days in luxurious showrooms with guests looking for that special piece to commemorate an important occasion or symbol of their love. Relationships are formed with our guests that last for many years. Day’s employees enjoy people and building relationships with our guests and with each other. Day’s employees often describe their co-workers as family.”

    Other employees agree; Company Photographer and Content Producer, Brian Chick says, “We are given the tools and support to succeed with in-house training and continued education outside of the workplace.” Lindsay Nodden, Assistant Buyer said, “I think the reason why we won best places to work in Maine is because people genuinely enjoy their jobs here.  How could you not, working with beautiful things and amazing people every day!”

    Day’s Jewelers will be recognized at the Best Places to Work in Maine awards ceremony on October 10 and will be listed in a special publication by Mainebiz. The final rankings will be announced at the event.

My advice to you, is to focus in on the things that make you happy and enhance those in 2016. Spend less energy on what you want to change about yourself and more about what you love.

    When setting goals, it is important to give yourself a deadline so that you stay on track. Whether it will take the whole year or just a few weeks, set dates so that you can mark your calendar and check each one off as it is completed. Start by organizing your workspace to create an environment of efficiency with plenty of room for brainstorming. Always keep a tangible calendar close by that you physically have to turn or tear off the pages so that you hold yourself accountable for time. We have created a free printable gemstone inspired calendar that you can download at the bottom of this post.



    The satisfaction of crossing a goal off of your plate is magical but don’t forget to reward yourself. The goals you accomplish help tell the story you leave behind. It is your heirloom left to the world.

    Buy something special to remind yourself of that accomplishment, something you can pass down to your future generations.

    Pressure makes diamonds so take your challenges head-on, head-strong and I guarantee you will be proud of the person who emerges.

  • What to Know About Sterling Silver

    lorenzo_citrine_ringSterling Silver jewelry has been around for quite a while.  It dates as far back as to the time of primitive man, and was named several different names before the word “Sterling” was created during the 12th century.

    During this time, the Germans used “Easterlings” (later shortened to “Sterling”) as a payment for English cattle.  Eventually, the Easterling became the Standard English currency.

    Sterling Silver had its “time to shine,” during the Victorian Era. The Victorian Era is known for its lavish affairs including affairs that involved eating. During this time it was frowned upon for food to be touched without an eating utensil. Eating utensils were made of sterling silver, and dpse0059this is where we get the term “Silverware” that we use today.

    Pure silver, which is also known as fine silver, is a malleable and very soft metal.  Fine silver can become damaged very easily, so it is usually combined with other metals to become more durable. All Sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver mixed with 7.5 % alloy (usually copper) metal to give it more strength.

    All Sterling silver tarnishes, and can tarnish more quickly when exposed to sulfur and certain other chemicals in the air. Sterling silver jewelry is unlikely to tarnish when it is worn because it is constantly rubbing against skin or clothing.

    signatureSome manufactures will plate sterling silver jewelry with a hard, bright metal called rhodium.  A rhodium plated chain will not tarnish.  It will have a bright silver color at all times. However, most people prefer not to purchase a rhodium plated chain because it does not have the natural, dull patina finish that is common to pure sterling silver.

    If a sterling silver chain is stored in a sealed plastic bag with an anti-tarnish strip in the bag, it generally will not tarnish.

    rsoam03531Tarnish can be removed from a piece of sterling silver jewelry by dipping it in a tarnish removal liquid for a few seconds then rinsed.  It can also be removed by rubbing it with a specially treated silver polish cloth.

    Usually when people think of sterling silver jewelry, they think of something plain and silver in color.  However, as you can see that is far from the norm!


  • Some Fascinating Facts to Feed Your Passion for Gemstones

    jenst0823With their remarkable and fascinating colors, it’s no wonder why we continue to be fascinated by nature’s gems. Just when you thought you knew everything about colored gemstones, we just had to surprise you with a few facts!

    Remarkable Ametrine - Did you know that ametrine is a natural gemstone that is bi-colored and only mined in Bolivia? Combining the magnificent hues of purple amethyst and golden citrine, this intriguing gemstone dazzles with its rare beauty for a mesmerizing effect. You may also be surprised to know that although it’s a rare gemstone, ametrine is just as affordable as amethyst or citrine! One look at this gorgeous gemstone and you’ll marvel at nature’s beauty as if it was created with you in mind.

    Breathtaking Iolite - Long before iolite was crafted into fine jewelry, it was originally used by the Vikings to navigate the open seas. The violet blue gemstone was effective in filtering the haze and minimizing glare. It is incredible to think that the purpose of this gemstone has transformed from functional sailing to creating exceptionally gorgeous jewelry! Iolite also offers a more affordable option to sapphires and tanzanite by offering the rich hues of blue to create a look that is undeniably chic.

    jplbr0386Lustrous Pearls - The only gemstone to be harvested from a living creature, the natural pearl offers an iridescent sheen that is irresistible with its symbolic beauty and timeless appeal. Ancient Chinese legend believed that pearls were created from and inherited the celestial glow of the moon. Since natural pearls are now a rarity, the technique of culturing pearls has become a more common way to harvest such splendid beauty, from the fresh waters of China and the Tennessee River to the salt waters of Japan, China, Tahiti, Indonesia, the Philippines and Australia. We would love to hear where your pearls are from and welcome any suggestions you may have for other customers!

    Carat Weight - Did you know that a 1 carat ruby may appear to look smaller than a 1 carat emerald? People often associate carat weight with size. While this is a common method, collectors must also be aware of density which is represented in the Mohs scale of hardness. For instance, a ruby is denser than an emerald which explains why a 1 carat ruby would appear smaller in size.

    rtmd0815Maine Tourmaline - Are you dreaming about that vacation in Maine? When that day comes, we sure hope you’ll visit us at one of our six store locations. But until that time, why not have the next best thing? A little piece of Maine to call your own - Gorgeous Maine Tourmaline! Mined from the western mountains of Maine, the vibrant pink and green gems are a fashionable way to capture the essence of natural beauty while serving as a keepsake of precious times spent with loved ones. Did you know that tourmaline is found in all colors making it the most colorful gem? Pink, green, red and blue are the most common colors. There are also pink and green bicolored gems and a unique watermelon variety that is cut to display its pink center, a white ring and green edge. What can be more fun to wear during those summer days!

    Precious Gems - You may wonder, “I don’t have any ruby, sapphire or emerald jewelry, does that mean that my fine jewelry is considered semi-precious?” We would say, “Absolutely not!” In the past, many people considered rubies, sapphires and emeralds to be precious stones and all other gems to be semi-precious. While these three types of gems are still considered more valuable to this day, the distinction between precious and semi-precious gems has become outdated. All natural colored gems are precious and rare. What differentiates the price is the quality and rarity of the particular gem.

    jerrb0495Radiant Rubies - July is right around the corner, so we definitely need to mention a thing or two about rubies! Did you know that the only natural gemstone that is harder than July’s birthstone is a diamond? So if you’re looking for a piece of jewelry for everyday wear, those with rubies make an excellent choice.

The No Greater Love pendant from Studio Petra Azar expresses this connection through the seamless bond connecting the two halves. The Mother and Child are connected by a magnetic union that symbolizes their love. This pendant has a line of diamonds streaming through the center and when the pieces come together, a single heart is created.


    joinedheartThis Joined Heart necklace gracefully connects two hearts representing love between two people. A customer inspired Stephanie by asking her to design a piece in memory of her deceased husband by using the couple's wedding rings. One open heart represents the open persona of the husband while the closed heart represents the quite persona of the wife. Together they create strength and synergy as indicated in this necklace. Add a loved one's birthstone to personalize it.

Finely crafted from 14 karat white gold, its pendant features a 3mm solitaire that suspends from a split bail.

    Still stuck? -- Kathy and Melissa will find the perfect gift!

  • Chivalry is Alive and Well

    These days, chivalrous, romantic men can seem few and far between, but when a man is in love, chivalry comes as naturally as in this case - flying a jet! On December 26th, 2011 I received the following email from Robert Hendrick, a US Air Force fighter pilot stationed in England:

    robert_chelsea“I am looking at purchasing an engagement ring from one of your stores, but I am currently stationed overseas.  I will be in the area in a few weeks, and wanted to see and hold a ring before actually purchasing it.  Unfortunately, I will only be around for a couple days. In essence, I'm trying to do as much research as possible so that I can show up and walk out with a ring within 24-48 hours.  Any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!”


    Robert and his sweetheart, Chelsea, both graduated from Winslow High School a couple years apart but never really knew each other in school. They began emailing each other this past Summer while Robert was stationed in the Middle East. One thing led to another and finally Robert came to the conclusion that Chelsea was the lady he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.

    Robert and I communicated back and forth to try to narrow down his choices. She has very tiny fingers and we wanted to make sure the ring would be perfect. Finally the choices were down to three. I connected Robert with Dave Smith, Manager of our Waterville store and with Gayle Baker a very special diamond consultant at Day's. Robert flew in from London on January 13th and came into Day's that evening to inspect the rings. On January 14th he returned, made his choice, and walked out with the ring preparing for the surprise of a lifetime. Here's what Robert shared with me about his proposal:

    fm00071“I proposed and gave Chelsea the ring that Saturday night, and it was a huge success.  She didn't know I was in the country, so I just surprised her at her home.  She walked in and there I was, with a rose and a ring in hand.  Fortunately, she said yes!”

    Robert is a true gentleman and a pleasure to work with. The Day's team thanks Robert and Chelsea for allowing us to share in their story and we wish them a wonderful life together.
