This ring is gorgeous and it's on Clearance for $419.99. Keep in mind that down the road you could trade it in, get exactly what you paid, towards another ring that costs $839.98 or more, and get the $419.99... (More)

I have been with Kay Jewelers for 24 years. I am currently working as a Virtual Jewelry Consultant on the LivePerson Messaging Platform and loving it!!! I started in 1998 and quickly wanted to know everything I needed in order to become a Manager. I became a Manager at Belden Jewelers for many years. My store was an amazing store and most of the new hires were sent to me for training. I was a huge believer that my store is only as successful as the employees that I trained! We spoke about St. Jude on a daily basis and by the time the bears were sold out each year, my store always had a record number of cases donated. I would personally put them in my car and make many trips on many days to drive them to the local Police and Fire stations for their "Bears on Board" program, where if there was an accident or domestic situation, and there was a child involved, they would give the child a St. Jude Bear! I also personally donated 50 bears to the Patriot's Foundation each year. Right after Thanksgiving, this Foundation chose 50 children from area shelters and brought them to the Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA for a day where they would get a $150.00 gift card to spend at Bass Pro Shops. They had to buy themselves a coat, hat and gloves and the rest they could spend any way they wanted. They had a dinner for them and they also got to meet some of the players and cheerleaders! The bears were an added gift that they got to keep. I got married in 2016 and stepped down where I ended up working at Wrentham Outlets. The Outlet was a whole different experience. I met people from all over the world! We used google translators when needed and it was always so interesting to hear people's story and to find our how far they travelled to get here. The most rewarding part of working for Kay Jewelers is definitely the relationships that I have built over the years with countless customers! My customers are not just customers, but they are my friends! I have sold to many of their children that I started selling to in 1998! It makes me happy to know that all these years, I have been part of their story, helping them to find the perfect birthday gift, perfect anniversary gift, and all the other occasions, making wish lists and dreams come true! I started making wish lists even before it came out in Clienteling! I had my "Personal Trade" notebook with a page for "Marie's Favorites" and "Carol's dream rings" as well as "Mark's favorite watches and chains". Working for Kay Jewelers isn't just a job or a career, it's an experience and an opportunity to change lives, make friends, earn trust and feel that at the end of the day you know that you celebrated Life and Expressed Love with every customer!

My mom and step-dad were married for 44 years before he passed away in 2018. They got along so good! One day, I did say, "Bob, between you and me, what's your secret for keeping my mom happy after all... (More)
We didn't need much time. Between our engagement and wedding it was only 6 months. We had 38 people at the most beautiful Colonial Inn and they took care of everything for us. We picked the meal, the cake and... (More)
