Treat Yourself To New Beginnings

As the holiday season of winds down and you suddenly find yourself turning the page into the blank canvas of next year, it’s so important to remember to take care of (and treat) yourself.  Family gatherings throughout the season are a wonderful time to be together and celebrate all the love surrounding you, but as many of us experience, they can be incredibly draining as well.

When we focus so much on giving it is important not to leave ourselves off the list of recipients. I like to think of it as if we all have a big cup of love and we go around giving little sips and sloshes to those around us. But if we don’t take the time to fill up our own cup there will be nothing to give! We find ourselves stressed out, crass, and unwell. 

Laying down a foundation of self-care can be incredibly helpful. Making sure all your physical needs are met and remembering to be kind to yourself belong at the top of the list! Also, there is a phrase made popular by the show Parks and Recreation which sums up the occasional need to pamper yourself and that is "Treat yo self" we are here to give you full permission. Yes, it is absolutely okay to treat yourself!Surely we all could come up with a scroll of things we would like to incorporate into our year. One way to remind yourself of all the goals and visions you have for living your best life is to wear something every day that reminds you.     

It’s the same concept as the old tie a string around your finger to help you not forget. Instead of a string, it's investing in something beautiful that will remind you every day of your commitment to yourself.                 

One symbol commonly used in Beth's work that embodies new life is the sun. For your viewing pleasure, a gallery of pieces that incorporate the sun and symbolize new chapters can be found below.

Symbolic Pieces to Represent the New You 

New Beginnings Pendant 

Beth's "New Beginnings" Pendant (above) and earrings (below) are a sure fit if you're looking for a piece to remind you of the bright horizons ahead.

Embrace your journey with the New Beginnings on the Shoreline Pendant. A rising sun floats above the shoreline, helping you remember that with each new day, endless possibilities await you. There are earrings and a small version of the pendant as well

Rings such as the Sunrise Mountain Pines can also serve as a beautiful reminder to treat yourself right.

 The Sunrise Mountain Pines Cuff features a similarly inspired design on a cuff instead of a ring for those of us who need the reminder right on our hand.

Last But Not least, the Radial Copper Earrings feature that same radiant radial texture that catches the light just right. These beauties will definitely remind you of all that is light and lovely in your life.

It's safe to say in the fifteen months I have worked at Beth Millner Jewelry, I've fallen in love a few times with the unique, nature-inspired pieces. What I love most of all about Beth's jewelry is that it is made with the environment in mind. I feel good about wearing and sharing her pieces made with recycled metals!

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.
