Autumn's Staff Picks

Meet Autumn, our Shop Assistant and Sales Associate. She has an excellent eye for aesthetics and loves helping customers find their soon-to-be favorite pieces. Here are some of her favorite pieces from the shop!

 

Double Band Sunfish Ring

The wide selection of double band rings designed by Beth speak to those who value comfort, practicality and aesthetic. Each of these rings is adorned with a nature inspired design such as waves, daffodils and my personal favorite - the sunfish.

This ring is a delicate reminder of days spent in a boat or on a rocky shore, fishing with Dad. Even though I can hardly tell I’m wearing it, once it’s on, anytime I notice it out of the corner of my eye I’m warmed by the memories it inspires.

 

Sterling Silver Lake Superior Studs

With countless pieces depicting my favorite place on earth (Michigan’s North Coast), picking just one Lake Superior inspired set of earrings was tough! After careful deliberation I did come to the conclusion that my favorite in its class was the set of Sterling Silver Lake Superior Studs.

These speak to me. It’s a combination of the iconic shape, minimalist design and wearability. These are perfect for subtly complimenting any outfit or as the pair you end up never taking out!

 

Long Copper Lake Superior Agate Pendant

If you’ve ever been into Beth’s shop, you’ll know most pieces/materials have a story. This cream color, copper banded agate was formed in the Keweenaw, the only place in the world copper banded agates are found. I’m particularly fond of this stone not only because it is completely unique and beautiful, but also because it reminds me of my favorite caffeinated beverage - a cappuccino!

 

Greenstone Summer Twig Ring

You know how sometimes you just fall in love and you can’t shake the thought of this person… or thing. That’s me! I’m head over heels for this ring! The bold, green depths of the stone combined with the twig band is simply a regal, eye-catching design. In addition to the color of stone, the shape of this particular Greenstone lends it’s majesty - it’s almost perfectly round. I would wear this ring daily, as either a staple in my wardrobe, or a non-traditional engagement ring.

  

Reversible Tiny Tree Mixed Metal Charm

This little tree is synonymous with Beth’s style and is cut into U.P. copper and sterling silver. The charm can be worn as a dainty pendant, or as intended, on a charm bracelet or bangle. I chose this as my last pick to represent my appreciation for the rustic, warm aesthetic copper brings to a piece. The reversible feature is common among Beth’s work, and in this case allows the piece to compliment silver jewelry.

Sizing
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 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.

Look here for more information about resizing items that you have already received.

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 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 hopefully they provides their ring size.

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.
