Lex's Picks 

 Little Presque Isle Autumn Pendant

We call the two trees standing together tree couples which symbolize the roots of two growing together. Naturally any piece with a tree couple is a soft spot for V-day. Lex also recalls fond romantic memories at Presque Isle and we're sure there are many others who may have similar stories.

Celestial Tree Couple No. 5 
Lex chose this one because the trees look like they're holding hands and the agate is simply stunning. Plus what's more romantic than a sky full of stars?

Autumn's Picks 

Woodland Dreamers Earrings 

Autumn says these are her favorite earrings currently in the shop because of their neutral colors and indisputable elegance giving off an almost elven vibe. The idea behind the design is for the tree couple to be leaning into each-other dreaming of love. Doesn't get much sweeter than that! Especially because they're dreaming on a landscape of 18K gold.

Conifer Tree Landscape Pendant 
Autumn loves this mixed metal beauty because the piece is minimalist, but doesn't go unnoticed due to the tree couple's striking silhouettes. In her words, "It's the perfect piece for your practical, nature loving partner."

Julie's Picks 

Choose Your Own Stone Copper Agate Ring 

Copper agates are Julie's favorite Great Lakes gem and double bands are her favorite rings so for her this piece could not be more perfect. "The concept is simple, but the stone & setting make the ring incredibly gorgeous." 

 Tree At Dawn Earrings 
Julie loves the long, elegant silhouette of these earrings. They are the perfect size to wear every day and the copper helps them stand out without being too complicated.

Janna's Picks

 Planting The Future Pendant 

Janna loves the fact that this pendant gives back to the land we all love here in the Upper Peninsula. $50 of every one sold goes directly to the Upper Peninsula Land Conservancy which is an outstanding organization that tends to the and and trails of our region. 

 Two Hearted River Pendant 
The two hearted river is a natural addition to our valentine's day picks. Janna loves how the two trees lean into each-other. It's also a lovely size for everyday wearing. 

Ash's Picks 

Upper Peninsula of Michigan Profile Ring 

This piece is wearable for both men and women and is super special for couples who met in the Upper Peninsula. Featuring UP copper from the white pine mine in Ontanagon. 

Sunset on the Chocolay River Pendant
Ash picked this one because 1. Chocolay sounds like a fancy way to say chocolate which everyone loves around v-day and 2. For couples who love watching sunsets and walking through nature together. 

Lauren's Picks 

Minimalist Single Wave Earrings 

According to Lauren, nothing is more romantic than a trip to the water. Day or night, with a partner or solo. In her words, "Water reminds me how fluid and ever changing life and love is and i love the sense of renewal that waves bring."To her these earrings are a simple symbol of self love and the loving connection she shares with the water. 

Chocolate and Roses Twig Ring

Anybody who knows anything about romance knows about literal chocolate and roses, so here is our take on the classic Valentine's gift idea. Lauren loves that our chocolate diamonds used to be industrial diamonds and sees choosing recycled materials as an act of love for the planet. 

Beth's Picks: (Drumroll Please!) 

Tempest's Treasure Pendant

Beth picked this as the perfect pendant for a beach-combing couple with its shoreline inspired design. The texture on the pendant is representative of the beautiful aftermath of a purely Superior storm.

Cresting Wave Earrings 

Beth sees these two waves as facing each-other, ready to become one. They are a beautiful representation of the most powerful and abundant element on earth. 

We hope you've enjoyed our picks for Valentine's Day. If you have favorites or ideas please share them with us via Facebook or Instagram! As you can see we're all a little cheesy here and hope you have an out of the box love filled holiday.

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.

Bangle Bracelet Sizing Beth Millner Jewelry Bangle Bracelet Sizing Beth Millner Jewelry
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 the 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.
