Treat Yourself To New Beginnings

As the holiday season of 2017 winds down and you suddenly find yourself turning the page into the blank canvas of 2018, 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 2018. One way to remind yourself of all the goals and visions you have for living your best life is to wear something everyday 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 everyday 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

The Brockway Mountain Pendant is a staff favorite always, but especially wonderful for reminding you of all the glorious things you wish to bring into your life in 2018.

Rings such as the Sunrise Mountain Pines can also serve as a beautiful reminder to treat yourself right in 2018.

 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.

The Noquemanon Trail Network Pendant is another lovely option. Not only is this design incredibly uplifting, but $50 of the proceeds from this pendant go directly to the Noquemanon Trail Network which is an organization that works hard to create and maintain the splendid trails around the U.P. that we all love.

The McClure Basin Pendant Features a stunning sunrise design as well with radiant texture that catches the light above rolling copper hills and a sterling silver stream.

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.

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 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.

Look here for more information about resizing items that you have already received.

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 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 hopefully they provides their ring size.

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.
