Fresh Coast Film Festival

Fresh Coast Film Festival

Our experiences at the 2016 Fresh Coast Film Festival were nothing short of magical. As one of our staff members, Ash, so aptly put it, “It changed my life for real…my heart still swells when I think about it.” We were blown away by the beautiful stories and massive amount of pride our community has for this incredible place we call home. It was impossible to make it through an evening without laughing, crying and learning something new about our Great Lakes region.

Needless to say, we are pumped for this year’s festival! While it’s hard to imagine that anything could top the 2016 event, the amount of unbelievable talent dedicated to the FCFF makes us believe anything is possible. After all, they will be showing over one hundred new documentaries over the course of four days! These stories of adventure and conservation were so inspiring to us last year; we are so excited to see what awesome new films await us!

The Upper Peninsula has always provided a tremendous amount of inspiration for our work throughout the years. Whether it be the Forestville Basin, Chocolay River, Heritage Trail or shores of Lake Superior, our surroundings constantly breathe life into our jewelry designs. This past year, we were proud to team up with the Noquemanon Trail Network, Superior Watershed Partnership, and MooseWood Nature Center to design pieces that benefited these non-profits by donating a percentage of the jewelry proceeds to the applicable non-profit.

We've recently partnered with the Upper Peninsula Land Conservancy to produce one of our newest fundraiser pieces, set to be released next week! These organizations and the FCFF play an integral part in bringing awareness to the natural environment we hold so dear.

Events like the Fresh Coast Film Festival serve as a beautiful reminder of the strength in our community and the continued need to protect our natural spaces. The work they do is immeasurably important and we look forward to attending this incredible event on an annual basis!

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.

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.
