  • 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!



  • 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.

  • Style File: Diamond Earrings and Birkenstocks

    Here in New England we're no stranger to the Birkenstock sandal. My grandmother has been rocking this trend for as long as I can remember; and this year I am happy to say Grandma's got style! 

    images_(2)1It's true, the Birkenstock inspired sandal is making a major comeback for Summer 2014. I first noticed this when I went to Venice beach for a day. I saw a woman wearing a pair of black sandals that were almost identical to the Birkenstock sandal that was created over 100 years ago (ps: Day's is 100 this year). Can you believe it? The Birkenstock was created in 1897, but we're not sick of it yet!

    After seeing this look alike sandal at Venice beach I started noticing it everywhere! Not only are other labels creating their own version of the timeless sandal, but the original company is still going strong with new styles and colors.


    deqt0115_1_1The best part about classic items, like a pair of Birkenstocks or a strand of pearls, is that they look great with nearly every outfit, and they never lose their value or style. Trends come and go in cycles and investing in timeless, classic pieces is a great way to ensure that you get your money's worth, and that the item will be fashionable for more than one season.

    My favorite timeless accessories are my LL Bean boots and my diamond stud earrings!

    Check out this article that Refinery 29 posted about the return of the Birkenstock sandal too!

  • 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: 8 Summer Jewelry Must Haves

    Summer is here and it’s time to get out the flip flops and sunglasses. But, you know that I can’t go out of the house with those as my only accessories. So, here’s a list of 8 summer jewelry must haves.

    ngmss0940_1Play with color:

    This summer neon and pastels are in. If the bold, bright neon colors aren't your style, you can add some soft, feminine pastels to your wardrobe. I’ll be sporting both looks, but probably more on the bold and bright style, especially with my favorite neon drusy necklace.


    Make a statement:

    Unique, one of a kind pieces are great any time of year, but this summer add some funky, fun and fashionable jewelry. Art deco and geometric styles are great for making a statement and really allow you to show off your unique style.


    ngrs2379_1Don’t be shy:

    You know the saying, “Go big or go home” well the same is true for this summer’s fashion. Don’t be afraid to show off some big jewelry, like thick chains and chunky rings.


    Screen shots:

    The Great Gatsby is playing a huge roll in summer fashion trends. Layered bracelets and long necklaces, fun and flirty pendants and rings are in this season. You can also rock your long necklace backwards, as we’ve seen from Jennifer Lawrence.

    wctzg0538_1Green vs. Green:

    We know 2013’s pantone color of the year is green. But, it’s also cool to go green with jewelry too! Recycle some old pieces and make them into something new.

    Just in time:

    Watches are coming back folks and in all styles; sporty, classic, colorful, you name it. It’s not about telling time anymore, it’s about fashion. This is a great way for guys to add a little something to your look!


    ngbr0324_1Wrap your wrists:

    This summer style your look with bracelets. Wrap bracelets are trending right now. They are fun and add a bigger, bolder look with only one bracelet instead of 4 or 5. You know you remember those days when we were kids and wore 10 plastic neon bracelets right? Ok, maybe that was my generation, but now we can just wear one for the look of 10!

    Golden Glamour:

    Gold is hot this season. Not just yellow gold, but colored gold, like rose (or pink). Rose looks good on every skin tone and is super feminine and flirty; a huge trend for those summer weddings.

    So there it is, my quick summer style reference guide. Eight surefire ways to make sure you standout, sparkle and shine this season!
