Michigan Made Monday - Stormy Kromer

June 24, 2015

If you've been to the Upper Peninsula, chances are you've seen the popular Stormy Kromer perched on the head of a Yooper.  With a diverse line of quality hats and clothing, this brand is synonymous with an active, outdoor lifestyle and popular with all generations.  Best of all, they are made right in Ironwood, located on the west end of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan!  


The Stormy Kromer hat has a great history dating back to 1903.  You can read the full story here.  In 2001, the brand was bought by Jacquart Fabric Products and production was moved from Milwaukee to Ironwood.  While the Stormy Kromer hat and clothing/accessory line is Jacquart Fabric Product's main product, the company also has a diverse product line that includes pet beds, banner and canvas printing, boat covers and much more.  

If you like to see how things are made or are a big fan of the Stormy Kromer, check out the Stormy Kromer factory tour. This tour runs weekdays at 1:30 and is free to the public.  This past weekend shop manager Janna had the opportunity to take the tour while traveling through the west end of the U.P.  She recommend's the tour, which was informative and fun, ending in Stormy Kromer's flagship store.

Keep up to date with Stormy Kromer on their Facebook page or visit their online store here and support this iconic Michigan Made company!

There is nothing quite like a conifer forest. Needles crunching underfoot, the smell of mint laced sap, and the warm sun trickling through the shady branches.

Ring Sizing

Purchase this ring sizer to help determine your ring size. This sizing tool is most accurate for double band rings and bands 6mm and under.

Fingers can change size due to many circumstances. The best way to get an accurate size is to check the size a couple of different times throughout a several day period to determine your best size. The majority of our rings can be resized, but if the ring has a stone setting other than a diamond, it probably cannot be resized unless otherwise noted in the item listing.

Some of our rings with stones are shown with the stone not set in order for us to size the ring to your specifications and set the stone afterwards. This avoids damage to the stone during sizing. Reference the individual ring listings for more details. Wide Bands 7mm and above have more friction against the finger and will need to be ordered a little larger.

Our double band rings fit like a narrow band. When getting sized for a double band ring, you can get sized for a ring that is narrow.

When getting your finger sized, inform jeweler of the width band you are intending on purchasing and rely on them to determine your ring size.

If you need a ring resized that you have already purchased please contact us. 

Engagement Ring Sizing

Purchase this ring sizer to help determine your ring size. This sizing tool is most accurate for double band rings and bands 6mm and under.

There are many sneaky options for getting the size right but the best way is to have their finger sized by a professional.

You may be able to sneak one of their rings and bring it into a jewelry store and ask them to check the size.

Beth Millner Jewelry has wish lists too, so they could come in to the store and fill out a wish list and we will try to get their ring size written down.

Bracelet & Cuff Sizing

Measure wrist circumference. Take your measurement just above the wrist above bone.

Use the chart below to determine the correct size.

The bracelets we make are designed to fit comfortably, but if a looser fit is preferred, the next size up may be suitable.

Size Wrist Measurement (Inches) Wrist Measurement (cm)
Small 5.5-6 14-15
Medium 6-6.5 15-16.5
Large 6.5-7 16.5-18
X-Large 7-7.5 18-19
XX-Large 7.5-8 19-20.5
Bangle Sizing

Bangle Size is determined by hand size, rather than wrist size

Measure hand size by tucking your thumb in, just like when trying on a bangle. Measure around the thickest part of the hand while in this position.

Use the chart below to determine the correct bangle size.

Size Hand Measurement (inches) Hand Measurement (cm)
Small 7-8 18-20
Medium 8-9 20-23
Large 9-9.5 23-24
Pendant & Earring Sizing

When determining the size of pendant or earrings you would like to purchase, please reference the item description which includes the size of the piece.

Also, there will be an image with a hand in the picture to help visualize the size.

When choosing a piece for another person, we find that our customers choose pieces that are similar to their overall stature.

People that are shorter and small tend to like smaller items, tall slender people tend to like our longer larger pieces.

Chain Length

When picking out a chain, 18 inch is the most common length.

This would cause the pendant to sit between the collar bones.
