Staff Picks - Reba

Life is filled with little wonders, unexpected opportunities, and at times some fairly difficult decisions.  A combination of all three danced through my already indecisive mind as I tried to narrow down a list of my favorite pieces that have been born here at Beth Millner Jewelry.  With a heart that is undeniably tied to the natural world I find myself instantly falling in love with every detailed stone, twig, tree, and riverbed I lay my eyes on around the shop.  That being said, it had to be done.  Choices were made, and my hopelessly romantic soul found its perfect mates.

First things first, there is no exaggeration involved when I tell you I'm convinced that the Wildwood Wonderland pendant is the physical form of my heart's song.  It is the first copper-banded agate I laid eyes on, and now I can't help but show it off to anyone who enters it's vicinity.  Though I'm sure it comes to no surprise, I'm a very dreamy individual, and anything that calls to the mystical side of nature will quickly have me wrapped around it's finger.  I can't get enough of the sweet milky color, the crown of trees resting atop the stone - and those peachy swirls of copper that catch the light just right to remind me that it truly is the simple moments that make life beautiful.

As an active seeker of all things dainty and delightful, it's not hard to see why jewelry is something I get excited about.  I'm a very visually-oriented person, and my wardrobe consists of a wide variety of styles to satisfy my thirst for expression - which doesn't always make it easy to choose an everyday accessory.  My solution?  Keep it classic.  The Textured Sterling Silver Hoop Earrings  and the Textured Copper Drop Earrings - both may be simple, but they're far from plain.  I love each for their unique yet minimalistic style that works with anything I'm feeling for the day - be it vintage, boho, grunge, or something entirely new.

Last but not least, my favorite piece in the entire shop, and one I'd wear right to my grave.  Okay, that was a slightly morbid statement, but I think it's only fitting for the Black Rocks Crow Pendant.  Some see crows and their larger cousins, the raven, as an omen of something dark on the horizon.  As a child, I saw how misunderstood these incredibly intelligent animals are, and they quickly became one of my favorite creatures.  Throughout my life, they've become a guide and symbol of wisdom, resilience, and positive growth through through the darkness. The radial detailing behind the crow on this pendant feels to me like a promise of hope, and the rocks below it a reminder that I am safe and grounded no matter how high I may fly.

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.
