Let’s be real here…. A good looking platter is not only the perfect piece of Pintrest Porn but a delicious piece of real life edible art – and who’s complaining about that!? Aperitivo hour – the two hours around sunset time – may just be my favourite time of the day due to the snacks & platters that manifest and appear across the globe at this time. We took to pinterest to scope out some killer platters that we can't wait to replicate... Read on for more inspiration.

What an evening. To launch our new Aperitivo collection of 4 Saint Pendant necklaces, we hosted a magical afternoon over 'Aperitivo' hour at the most incredible Villa Nedine in Bali. An afternoon of wine, beautiful food, jewellery swooning, catching up with old and new friends while the sun set behind us.
Designed on a recent design trip to Italy and following on from our SANTA CHIARA collection, our new APERITIVO collection is an ode to the laid back, history-rich and passionate Italian lifestyle.
Unique hand-carved pieces each with their beautiful meaning. we have designed these pieces to be treasured for a lifetime to come. Come & check out the campaign x
We're new friends, but something in the air tells me we'll be pals for life. This go-getting incredibly creative and talented lady Tori Ambler is the stylist behind our latest couple of shoots... oh and the Mum of 2 super cute twin toddlers! How she manages to juggle her passion for creative work in styling, motherhood, drop offs, pick ups, trips overseas for her husbands work oh, and always finding time to reply to my messages? It's beyond me...
I'm a big fan of Podcasts... maybe it's due to my slightly obsessive compulsive attachment to my business that I'm always looking to get inspired, learn, grow... be a better human! But you'll more often than not find me with ear plugs in and bopping to the beat of...yes, a new Podcast. Below are my favourite 5 that I have been digging these past few months.... There is plenty more goodies where these came from so I will write another post soon with some more! To get you started....
Whether you’re planning a trip this year or next… we’re pretty sure Bali is on your ‘to-visit’ list. For work or holiday (or both!) there are so many beautiful places to visit and things to do in Bali. From beach clubs to walks through rice paddie villages to volcano hiking, white water rafting and eating some of the best food you’ve ever eaten…. Bali really is a one-stop shop. So, once you’ve booked your ticket, the next step is to pack that bag my friends! We’re here to help you prepare for your day trips once you land and have put together the best Bali Packing List for a Day Trip on the island.
A delicious take on the old Kiwi / Australian favourite, the 'ANZAC biscuits', Sophie Fisher from @coconutandbliss blog has shared her Anzac favourite recipe with us. If you're reading this and thinking WTF are ANZAC biscuits (Ie. You're not from New Zealand or Australia!) let me tell you here and now, you have been missing out you're entire life my friends
Our Lunacita Alden Easter has recently launched her guide to the 30A area – a beautiful beach area along the coast of Florida. While I have not (yet) visited, she sure does make a good case that we all SHOULD be visiting this beautiful section of the US. We took 5 to catch up with Alden to hear all about it..
Sophie Fisher is the legend behind @coconutandbliss and the co-designer in our latest collaboration collection (that we’re not-so-quietly OBSESSED with.) I’m sure you’re already a follower of her adventures and delicious cooking over on her instagram but we wanted to catch up and chat a little more in depth with her, find out what gives her jump in her step and her blender whizzing!
Our Bali Best Eats series of blog posts gives you a little heads up on where we're currently crushing, where you will most likely find us working annnddd what food we can't go a week without ( we are so incredibly spoilt - I know!) Today in the spotlight is one of my long-time personal favourites just down the road from us.
Come in and find out why we absolutely LOVE Two Trees Eatery in Berawa and what keeps us coming back.... week after week. x
One of the first things we learnt in our fashion school lab (Yes, we wore lab coats & studied in ‘textile labs’!) was how to tell the difference between a fabric that is derived from nature and one that is man made. To make it really simple and fast forward a few lab tests & goggle selfies I will cut to the chase. Fabrics are either made from Plants (Natural ie Cotton, Linen, Ramie, Wool), Made from plastics (Man made ie Nylon, Polyester), or are a blend of both of these two.
Who better to let you in on the hot spots and must do's in a new area than a resident local? While I've visited Florida many many moons ago, I would say my time there resonated more with.... ah hem.... drinking too many mojito's and long sandy nights partying. And while South Beach is 100% the spot to drink, party, get up to mischief and nude midnight swims, I'm dying to go back and explore more of Florida (And see more in the daylight). For those of us ready to explore this State, we asked our lunacita Natalie Zacek what her top five MUST visit spots in Florida are. Here goes!
Mariah & Michael Buble are on repeat…. A flurry of express shipped orders have been sent out to some lucky ladies and our Summer bod’s are well….ahem….. they’re on their way….
Who doesn't love an espresso Martini?
There are so many ways you can make this caffeinated concoction, and thankfully more and more bartenders are learning how to mix it here in the states (Amen to the Aussies doing them so well for so long!) Read on for Alden's favorite at home recipe and get the party started!
We caught up with our lunacita Alden Easter and chatted all things Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving day is always full of delicious food, spending time with family, and traditions that have been passed down for years. In my family, we spend Thanksgiving all together and enjoy a relaxing day (usually full of a lot of football too!) I am here to highlight my favorite parts of thanksgiving and tell you how I like to celebrate Turkey day!
Our necklaces come in a variety of lengths from 15" (Petites & almost a Choker length) to 23". Our 15", 16" and 18" length necklaces all come in our Fine Chain with the 20" and 23" length chains in our 'Everyday' Chain which is slightly heavier in weight. All items in the La Luna Rose shop clearly label the length of the chain used for that design. Unless otherwise stated, all necklaces are adjustable by 1"/2.5cm in length. Below is a diagram of how our chain lengths sit on a body. If you have a large breast area, you may find that the 23" length chain sits in between your boobs...a good thing or bad, I'm not sure, that's up to you!
|CHARITY & SALLY T-SHIRT MEASUREMENTS||SMALL (Size 6-10)||MEDIUM (Size 10-14||LARGE (Size 14-16)|
It is important to note that different countries have different sizing methods.
Most of the world goes by number sizing which is the easiest and most accurate.
Because we sell our jewellery all over the world, we have decided to stick with number sizing and have put together the below chart to help you out. The most common size for ladies is a size 7 and size 10 for man. If you are unsure of your size you can measure the inner diameter of one of your own rings and refer to the below measurements.
Feel free to email us at email@example.com if you have any further issues.
Please also note that if you are ordering a wide band ring, its usually a good idea to go up a size.
Size 6 = Ring Sizes L, M, N. Inner Diameter measures 16.5mm
Size 7 = Ring Sizes N, O, P. Inner Diameter measures 17.3mm
Size 8 = Ring Sizes P, Q, R. Inner Diameter measures 18.1mm
Size 9 = Ring Sizes R, S, T. Inner Diameter measures 18.9mm
If you require a ring in a different size in any of the designs offered, please send us an email here and we will see what our clever silversmiths can do for you.
La Luna Rose chain bracelets fit much like the beaded bracelets with an adjustable clasp. Therefore they have two/three size options for you. They sit at a total circumference of approx 15cm & 17.5cm

Petites Bracelets - We have a number of options for our bracelets for little girls - they're our top seller and little girls just love them! Our Beaded tassel bracelets have an adjustable sizing system and comfortably fit a little girl from aged 3 - 14. Girls 14 and upwards are recommended to fit our Adults collection however if they have small wrists they will still fit the Petites range.

We would recommend a size 3.5 for girls 6-8 and a size 4.5 for girls 8-13 and a size 5-6 for 14-17year olds. However - every finger and body is different! Any questions, just send us and email here and we would be happy to help.
