We want your love for nature to be reflected in the jewelry you wear, so we're always looking for ways to make our unique jewelry more sustainable and use materials from ethical sources. As we designed new engagement rings for the June 2022 launch, we researched the best suppliers for recycled, eco-friendly, and conflict-free diamonds, as well as alternative stones that are just as visually stunning. Read more about each stone below to decide which one fits your dream ring.
Recycled diamonds are stones that already exist in the supply chain that are restored to ensure that they are the same quality as a brand new diamond. Because they bypass the mining process, they are a particularly eco-friendly option.
Our conflict free diamonds are recently mined stones. To ensure that they are ethically sourced, our diamond supplier follows the guidelines of the Kimberley process, is in compliance with the United Nations resolutions, and guarantees that the diamonds are conflict free.
Lab grown diamonds are real diamonds that were grown under specific conditions in a lab. They are generally excellent in quality, but are much more affordable than mined stones. That said, it is important to note that they will not appreciate value over time in the same way that mined stones will.
Diamonds are the hardest gemstone, and are ranked at a 10 on the Mohs hardness scale. This makes them perfect for everyday wear.
Moissanite might look like diamond, but it is a completely different gemstone! Originally found in meteors, the natural supply is extremely limited, and almost all moissanite on the market is lab grown. Like lab grown diamonds, moissanite will not appreciate value over time. That said, moissanite is more affordable than diamond options, and has more fire (the rapidly changing flashes of color seen in some gems) than diamond. They are a 9.5 on the Mohs scale, and are suitable for everyday wear.
Our Sapphires are mined right here in the United States in Montana. Our supplier is a Gold Level Green America Certified Business, which is an independent certification given to businesses that are environmentally responsible and socially equitable, among other attributes. Each sapphire is heat treated following industry standards to bring out the best color possible from each stone, making them a great option if you’re looking for something blue. They are a 9 on the Mohs scale, and are suitable for everyday wear.

BMJ mixed metal pendants are my faves, but this one may be the new #1 in my collection. Sunflowers give off such a happy, cheerful vibe that I decided this was the piece that I wanted to wear to help me get through my first chemotherapy session. And you know what? It totally worked. My day sucked a little less wearing this little piece of sunshine. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us - I'll be your biggest fan for life!
I love how Beth's double-banded rings can make a bold statement but still feel light and fit so well. They're my go-to rings.
These are the best for polishing my jewelry
I recently purchased the hummingbird pendant and earrings. I absolutely love them and have gotten so many compliments. Very high quality.
Perfect birthday gift for my daughter-in-law :)
I love this pendant. My husband purchased it for my 50th birthday. We are Minnesotans and we love the UP. The fact that this stone is from the UP makes it very special. And I love that the pendant is reversable!
I love my new earrings, they are such a beautiful shape and color. They are a perfect addition to my Beth Milder collection of jewelry
I am so happy to have ordered this unique piece! as someone with metal allergies it is hard to find silver jewelry that doesn't cause me to break out and I have never had a problem through Beth Millner! Supporting a small local business is an added bonus!
Fifty years ago in September, I began my first semester at
Michigan Technological University.
Superior, its forests, rivers, and rock completely captured my mind and heart.
I return each year with my partner to continue to explore the beautiful, the wild, and epic of this place.
As a remembrance of all that it has meant, and continues to mean to me, I purchased your beautifully crafted “Two Hearted River” pendant.
Thank you to all of the artisans who contributed to this stunning piece.
