New Beginnings- By Erika Vossbeck

When we take the time to reflect on the natural world around us, we can see the world cycling through transitions and forming patterns over time. Nothing ever stands still nor maintains its current state for very long, and while we may have four distinctive seasons we see change each and every day. Although I don’t get to experience much seasonality living in western Washington, whenever the seasons change, especially fall to winter, I feel a big push to make an internal change. With the days growing shorter it can be hard to adjust to more darkness than light. It’s hard to say goodbye to the warmth of summer and the colors of fall, only to welcome the cold and wet months ahead. But with every season’s end, comes a new beginning, a blank slate, a time to start fresh!

Beth Millner’s New Beginnings series is such a beautiful reminder of this, a time to hold memories from the past tight, but move forward and look ahead to what’s to come. My favorite is the mixed metals New Beginnings earrings and pendant. The contrast of light and dark between the sterling silver and brass as the sun rises and illuminates the surrounding darkness is such a perfect illustration. These pendants and earrings are so beautiful on their own, but what’s more is that they’re a great reminder that every day is a new day, a day for new beginnings and exploration, a day for change and for discovery.

With the new year coming, now’s a great time to initiate a change in one’s life, to do something positive and look forward to a new beginning. I recently read a study that stated, Americans who participate in New Year’s Resolutions are ten times more likely to succeed than those deciding to make life changes at other times of the year. So go ahead, make a change and welcome the endless possibilities that await you!

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 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.
