  • 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!



  • Time and the Rhyme

    I appreciate brands that are trying to solve solutions for many aspects of one’s life. Shinola is doing just that. Not only do they build goods in the USA, they are doing it in style. From small leather goods, to bikes, to turntables they are offering modern designs you can feel good about owning. Shinola watches are built in Detroit with Swiss and imported parts. Of all the products Shinola makes, the return of manufacturing jobs is the thing they are post proud of.

    We carry many of their watches and they are super classy, let me tell you.

    Check out this Maya Angelou Special Edition. A great tribute that comes with a leather journal filled with her poetry. Know the time and the rhyme...

  • Everyday Elegance in Swarovski

    I admire our merchandise team for their strict criteria; pieces are picked with environmental and ethical concerns in mind, whether or not they can last a lifetime (in most cases many lifetimes) and their quality.

    Swarovski is a designer that matches this criteria with some of our more obtainable pieces in both everyday fashion and elegant statements. We can get behind that.

    Eternity rings are super fly and at this price, please.

  • Top 3 Summer Wedding Design Trends by Guest Blogger Amber Small

    I am often asked, "Amber, what is going to be hot this summer?"  I love that question, because to me, anything can be hot. That is the wonderful thing about designing your wedding to fit you and your partner. Anything goes… In fact that's my hope for every couple: that their personality, their love, and their uniqueness comes through on their wedding day. That being said, there are always trends.

    Here are my top three trends for 2014:


    #1 Pale Color Palette: gold, taupe, blush, soft pinks are coming in force. The soft palette really adds a elegant overall presentation. I LOVE this muted palette, it just screams romance.


    #2 A touch of vintage: whether it's a piece of milk glass, or vintage plates or bottles, a touch of something old to make a new statement. Beware, use vintage pieces with great care. Don't pile on vintage over vintage, it starts looking like a antique store. Be thoughtful and combine modern and vintage to create a clean, romantic overall design.


    #3 Using one flower but in abundance: This design concept is a great way to keep a modern look when working with vintage pieces. It also makes a huge impact on your design. Whether it is baby's breath or peonies or dahlias, using one type of flower makes a powerful impact to any design.

    Whatever the trend, honor your sense of individuality and express it.  Have fun.



  • Style File: Coast to Coast - Fashion Week

    lafashionweekgatsby_girlIt’s no secret that the fashion capital of the America is New York, but in March, LA had their own "Fashion Week" celebration. On Friday, hundreds of people gathered around the outdoor lounge at the W Hotel in Hollywood to celebrate the kickoff of LA fashion week with a runway show featuring two incredible designers. I had the honor of being able to volunteer at this event which gave me exclusive front row access to all the looks!

    The runway show was amazing, but seeing the style of the attendees was a sight in itself. Since being here I have already discovered that Hollywood fashion is nothing like the prim and proper style you see in New York. The people of Los Angeles are certainly more experimental and creative with their fashion choices.

    Guests used this event as an opportunity to express their own personal style on the red carpet. Some people fully encompassed all of the colors of spring, bright blues and yellows, pastel blazers, and hats galore! Others came dressed in gowns. Miss. Hollywood attended, dressed in her sash and crown. My favorite look of the night was a woman who was fully embracing a Gatsby inspired look complete with a long cigarette holder. Being a part of this event was certainly a unique experience, as well as a reminder that style is a completely personal. It was an inspiring thing to see people dare to be different!


    Well I wasn't at fashion week (in LA or other wise), but I like to think I know fashion when I see it!  I try to stay on top of things, and have an addiction with shopping when all the new lines come out. I also have some amazing sisters with some serious fashion sense, so I'm in 'the know' -- even up here in Maine! But, I agree with favorite looks are always those of the people not afraid to go for it!


    marta-krupa-joanna-krupa-attend-the-style-fashion-week-la-2014-4I know we can't all be on the runway or red carpet (even though some of us would love to be - this girl right here) but, we all can make our own fashion statements based on what we see on the runways. It's super easy to take a style from the runway and make it into your own, especially with Pinterest - don't believe me? I grabbed a Spring fashion show outfit and did about 10 minutes worth of searching on Pinterest and here you go...from "Runway" to "Your Way!" A cute pink pastel knit dress, pastel green clutch, yellow nails, and a beatiful Citizen watch -- there you have it: As we mentioned last week in Style File: Spring Trends - baby blue, peep toe booties, hats, and clutches are this Spring's "do's" with accesories and clothing. You can see in this photo from the red carpet, the Krupa sisters have it right, a beautiful pastel pink gown and "bam" - stylish clutch that would stand out for days! Not to mention the beautiful statement piece necklace Marta is wearing!


    Fun right? And personally, I like the "Your Way" a little more. Here's a few pieces from Day's that are "Runway" to "Your Way" ready! While we can't dress you from head to toe, we can make you sparkle!

  • Jewelry Trends 2013: Neon Jewelry

    “The sky in Cheyenne, Wyoming is just about as blue as it gets and if you ain’t seen a Santa Fe sunset, you ain’t seen red. Texas sunflower yellow can take your breath away. I’ve seen it all from the orange of the fall to the green of the summer, but my favorite color is neon…” -Neon, Chris Young

    You may not know country music, but we can all relate to colors. The fashion industry is loading up with pops of neon color, from purses and shoes to jewelry. This spring, add some neon to your creamy neutrals and soft pastels to make a big statement.  Dare to add a pop of color to your "little black dress," or even your favorite jeans and t-shirt combo.

    Here are some of my neon jewelry picks for spring 2013:


    ngmss0940_1_1This exquisite green drusy necklace in sterling silver is exotic and mysterious. Covered with a shimmering layer of small vibrant green crystals giving this gemstone a glittering, magical appearance. This is a great addition to add some bright, neon color to your jewelry box. 


    nstes0829_1_1While we are at it, these black and green drusy earrings in sterling silver with peridot, are the perfect match for this necklace, or as a statement piece all their own.

    ngbr0325_1Neon green not your color? What about pink! This pink leather cord and 14kt pink gold plated bracelet is also a fabulous way to add a pop of neon to your look this spring.


    wcag0011_1Oh guys, we have something for you too. Our G-Shock watch collection is the perfect way for men to dress up their looks with some neon colors this spring. My favorite is the digital watch with green dial and black resin strap. Ladies, are you more into watches and less into necklaces, well the Baby-G watch collection has some great neon pink, purple and green watches too!

    We'll be adding more neon jewelry picks to our collection as they come in. Be sure to add some neon to your wardrobe this spring.
