Beth Millenr Jewelry Love on the lake giveaway winner

"My life with this man started when I was 17 years old (well actually 12, if you count the time we danced at the middle school Halloween dance). He made me chocolate chip cookies, tucked notes under my windsheild wipers, and made me feel valued. He had joined the Marine Corps, and we eloped a week after I turned 18. We moved around the country while he served and grew up as we faced life together. His enlistment ended and we found ourselves living close to where we grew up, near the shores of Lake Michigan. The ups and downs of life persisted, and yet we remained decidedly together. But something called us north. We camped, we hiked, and we explored UP only to leave with an ache to return to the shores of Mother Superior. 
I took a leap of faith and agreed to take a new teaching job in Marquette, less than 2 weeks before school started. We had a house to sell downstate and obstacles to overcome, but together, we were making our dream of life in God's country a reality. 
About a year later, we learned I was pregnant and brought into the world a little girl full of life and joy. We named her Lake, as she is a calming, renewing force and yet can be fierce and wild. 
The Lake has always felt like home to me. Like marriage and love, it's not always smooth, but it's always beautiful. I am thankful for its consistency in my life and for love on the lake."

Love certainly does not have to mean romantic love. Our office assistant Ash is simply infatuated with Lake Superior and would likely write her lake love story about the lake itself. It can be love between you and your pet, family member, significant other, for yourself, your yoga or meditation practice, or the lake and nature! Love has no limits so your stories don't have to either.

To enter follow these simple steps:

1. Follow us @bethmillnerjewelry on Instagram
2. Make a post on your Instagram page with your lake love story
3. Include the Hashtag "#loveonthelake" in the caption
4. Tag us in the caption @bethmillnerjewelry
5. Tag at least one other person in your post (someone from your story or someone you love)

Our staff will choose and announce the winner on February 15, 2018 

Check out this post below as an example. Note that this particular story is mostly about being in love with the lake itself. Your story can be absolutely any kind of love!

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.
