The Beth Millner Jewelry Sizing Guide- Finding Jewelry That Fits

 

When shopping for anything to wear things to consider are sizing, style, functionality, and material to ensure comfortability and longevity. Jewelry is no different and we believe it should cater to the wearer. Below you will find our tips and tricks to find jewelry that is as comfortable as your favorite T-shirt. 

 

Rings

Sizing

Ring sizes are not standardized across the United States. Unfortunately this means your ring size may vary between jewelers. If you are looking at ordering a Beth Millner ring and you are not local, ordering a ring sizer can be helpful!

Something to consider is that fingers fluctuate based on the temperature, how much we use our hands, and even what we're eating. To compensate this fluctuating you want a ring that slides on with ease, but slightly catches around the widest part of your finger. It should be comfortable and not too loose that it will fall off, but not so tight that it is constricting. 

Choose a width that is comfortable whether that means super thin like the 1.5mm Narrow Rose Gold Twig Ring, in the middle like our 4mm Tapered Birdseye Maple Ring, or a wide design like our 8mm Sunrise Mountain Pines Ring 

Material  

Just like considering the material your clothing is made of, it's equally important to choose the right material for your jewelry! Metals vary in softness and composition so for rings its important to consider how much the wearer uses their hands. 

For instance, if you work an average amount with your hands sterling silver will be a lovely metal for you. It is softer than its counterparts, but is the most common metal used in jewelry and holds up through regular wear and tear. 

Those who are constantly using their hands or working outdoors may need a more durable material. Rose gold, white gold, or yellow gold would be a suggested alternative.  

Choosing The Right Chain

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. 

Once you've figured out which length you like, consider your wardrobe and personality to find the right chain.

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. Our alternative, tiny loopy 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. Delicate pieces pair nicely with the darkened box chain. With large or complex pieces, the darkened tiny loopy is a sure fit. 

Every pendant on our website features a suggested chain in the description which we carefully choose for your convenience. 

Earrings 

Choosing earrings by Beth Millner Jewelry  

Are you a post person or do you prefer some dangle? Both are made entirely of sterling silver, free of the most common allergens. To accommodate different needs we offer a variety of options to optimize comfortability and wearability. 

The classic hoop style earring is our go to for light and petite designs like the lentil 4 seasons tree earrings and many others. A smaller hoop is available which hangs closer to the ear.

Long hair and scarves can become a catalyst for lost or stuck earrings and for those situations we recommend our super secure Latching Ear Wires. These comfortably support heavier designs like the Conifer Tree Landscape Earrings with a latch mechanism to ensure they stay where they belong!

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 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 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.
