As we’re all isolating during these crazy wild times, it’s especially important to slow down and take care of yourself. We’re all dealing with this exceptional situation in our own way, but if we can, we’ll help a little bit! So, here’s a list of what we’ve been doing so far that has helped us take the time to re-center and be patient…
Making our own face mask
Feeling good in your skin can definitely start with skincare. Taking time to dive into it is a great way to feel better, and a little bit more like yourself. While we’ve seen the thousands of recipes for banana bread online, let’s switch up a little and use these fruits as a face mask! Find a (super easy) recipe here.
Taking a yoga class
While we’re staying home, we have to admit it, our posture when bingeing another Netflix show is not our main worry. We’re definitely in need of a stretch, and we can’t recommend Alo Yoga’s Youtube channel more for that! Easy to follow, relaxing and actually making a change, these classes have helped us find a great way to feel calm.
Going through a global pandemic is something we process all in different ways. It can feel overwhelming, stressful, and it’s hard to keep yourself at bay when bad news come flowing through the day. Writing down those feelings, taking the time to write about your future goals, remembering memories with photo albums, can be a great way to get your mind off and think about more positive times coming.
Learning that new skill we’ve been talking about for years
Knitting, a new language, painting, how to play piano… The list goes on! There’s never been a better time to learn and teach yourself some new skills. The ones you’ve been meaning to get to but didn’t have the time: now there’s plenty of it! Starting slow, one step at a time, without any pressure is the best way to learn and be patient with yourself.
Releasing the pressure
As we see workout classes, everybody baking, being productive… it’s also essential to take time to relax and feel no pressure at all. Listen to yourself and what you want to do. If it’s staying in your pajamas all day, then so be it. If it’s meditating for hours because you can’t watch the news for more than 5 minutes, then so be it. And if you feel like being more productive than ever, that’s great too! Even though we give advice and ideas on what to do, we’re also big on the ‘doing-whatever-you-can’ thing. As we go through this global pandemic, let’s remember to take the time to actually be ourselves and do what feels good to YOU.

As a small brand like Luna & Rose, we know how important it is to support each other and empower other businesses we love, trust and believe in! Today, we want to show you our favourite Black Owned Fashion Sustainable Brands, a way for you to discover new resources, while taking care of our planet.
As we’re doing our best to keep ourselves educated and updated on the Black Lives Matter movement, one of our favourite ways to do so is to listen to podcasts. We’ve been loving learning from teachers, historians, and just regular people experiencing racism and issues we don’t even know about.
As we’re launchingour new Signet Rings, why not take the time to learn more about this timeless piece of jewellery?
First and foremost, signet rings represent a wide range of personalized ring, usually representing family symbols, signs, monograms and more. They were used to represent someone’s identity and they were traditionally used to sign into melted wax. How amazing is that?! A unique representation of someone’s signature right on their finger. In that sense, signet rings were extremely meaningful.
Luna & Rose necklaces come in a variety of lengths from 18" to 23". Our 18" chain necklace is made from our Fine Chain with the 20" and 23" length chains in our 'Everyday' Chain. These are the same chain design, just slightly heavier in weight for the longer lengths. For a rough guide (as we all have different, amazing bodies) the 23" chain sits around or just above your nipple line...
We're big fans of layering necklaces and I'm pretty sure you are too. All of our chains are adjustable in length by 2" to make sure you can style your layers to perfection and mix them up with other pieces in your jewellery wardrobe.
Although all necklaces are adjustable, for the perfect layered look we suggest that you purchase your necklaces on different length chains. This way you get to see the beauty of both pendants and there's less chance of scratching! We also personally like wearing the smallest pendant on the shorter length and the larger heavier pendants longer. That's just our personal choice though, we're all awesome & individual humans and ultimately you get to decide how you style your pieces!
Below is a little guide of some of our favourite pieces layered and their lengths:
|SALLY T-SHIRT MEASUREMENTS||SMALL (Size 6-10)||MEDIUM (Size 10-14||LARGE (Size 14-16)|
|CLASSIC 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 4 = Ring Size H 1/2. Inner Diameter measures 14.9mm (Recommended Pinky Size)
Size 5 = Ring Size J 1/2. Diameter measures 15.7mm (Recommended Pinky Size)
Size 6 = Ring Sizes L, M, Inner Diameter measures 16.5mm
Size 7 = Ring Sizes N, O, Inner Diameter measures 17.3mm
Size 8 = Ring Sizes P, Q, Inner Diameter measures 18.1mm
Size 9 = Ring Sizes R, S, Inner Diameter measures 18.9mm (Recommended Male Size)
Size 10 = Ring Sizes T 1/2. Inner Diameter measures 19.8mm (Recommended Male Size)
Size 11 = Ring Sizes V 1/2. Inner Diameter measures 20.6mm (Recommended Male Size)
Size 12 = Ring Sizes X 1/2. Inner Diameter measures 21.3mm (Recommended large Male Size)
