Cleaning & Care & Chains, Oh My!
If you happen to be the lucky recipient of a uniquely lovely Beth Millner piece this holiday season, here is everything you need to know about preserving the beauty of your jewelry and choosing the right chain!
When it comes to Beth Millner Jewelry, it is important to keep in mind that because of the various materials and intricate textures used in each item, cleaning and care varies from piece to piece.
Important Cleaning tips:
- Remove your jewelry before swimming, showering, or physical labor
- Most of our jewelry can be maintained by lightly rubbing it with a polishing pad or cloth which we have for sale here
- Avoid polishing stones when cleaning your jewelry
- Items containing 24K Gold Keum Boo or 22K Gold Applied on silver should only be cleaned by our shop
- Do not use a dip cleaner on pieces with patina. You will know your piece has patina if some of the metal is darkened (usually to add depth and shadowy elements to a design) Instead use soap and water and a polishing pad or extra fine steel wool

Choosing The Right Chain
We know that your jewelry preferences are as unique as you are. For that reason we provide a variety of chain options.
Important factors to consider when picking a chain are length and look. Picking the right one depends on your stature and personality.
We carry chains from 16- 22in and can also customize the length of our Tiny Loopy or Adjustable Chains. Adjustable chains are always a good way to go if you like to mix up the length of your jewelry or if you find yourself between sizes.
Before your head starts to spin with choices let us direct you! Check out these charts below and keep in mind height, body structure, style preference, and neck thickness when deciding which category you or your loved one fits into.
Once you've figured out which length you like it's time to consider your wardrobe and personality to find the right chain. Keep in mind that style preferences vary from person to person regardless of their size. Smaller people might like long necklaces and vice versa.
If your style is more traditional we usually recommend a sterling silver chain. The most classic chain we offer is the sterling silver box chain (click here to view). Our alternative, tiny loopy (click here to view) has a more casual and textured look to it.
For those who are a bit more edgy or earthy, our darkened chains offer unique appeal. For delicate pieces the darkened box chain (click here to view) pairs lovely. With complex pieces, the darkened tiny loopy (click here to view) is a sure fit.
All the chains are beautiful and truly nobody knows better than you which chain will make you feel like your best self (and that is the most important thing).
