ACE'S MOUTH WATERING SUMMER WATERMELON SALAD - La Luna Rose Jewellery

ACE'S MOUTH WATERING SUMMER WATERMELON SALAD

July 02, 2018

To share in the celebration of 4th of July, USA Independence Day this week, we thought we would ask our Lunacita Alden (@aceatthebeach) what she gets up to on this special day. And so she shared with us a little 'Easter family favourite'. I'm not going to lie.... I am VERY excited to try this one myself! Here's what Alden had to share.

With 4th of July almost here, what better way is there to celebrate than with this refreshing and festive summer salad?

My personal favorite Independence Day recipe is a summer watermelon salad that my family loves to have for dinner! The red watermelon and white goat cheese makes it a great dish for all your 4th festivities!

SUMMER WATERMELON SALAD

What you’ll need:

  • Watermelon 
  • Mint leaves
  • Goat cheese 
  • Cucumber 
  • Pistachios 
  • Lime 
  • Arugula 
  • Sea salt or Black salt
  • Your favorite olive oil

One of the great parts of this recipe is being able to easily tweak it to whatever size you need it. So feel free to make a massive bowl of, or whip up a quick snack!

Fresh Watermelon Summer Salad with Cucumber and Feta

Here is how to make enough salad to serve four:

  1. Take half a watermelon then quarter it. This will make it easier to cut the fruit into cubes.
  2. Throw 4 handfuls of arugula in a bowl. 
  3. Toss in a handful or two (depending on preference) of pistachios. 
  4. Take the goat cheese and slice it into small bits and add into the bowl. 
  5. Toss the watermelon in the salad. 
  6. Squeeze half a lime into over the bowl. 
  7. Slice up one whole cucumber and add. 
  8. Toss a pinch or two of fresh mint into the mix. 
  9. In another small bowl mix two parts olive oil, one part honey, and a squeeze of a lime. Then a bit of salt and pepper for taste.
  10. Drizzle this over the salad
  11. Toss the salad, serve on a plate and sprinkle with black salt or pepper! Fresh Watermelon Salad with Cucumber and Feta. Delicious

This recipe is so refreshing and a guilt-free way to enjoy your July 4th weekend (but be sure you pair it with a delicious glass of rosè!!)

Enjoy!

Welcoming the Patron Saint of Motherhood

October 17, 2018

Patron Saint of Motherhood Necklace Pendant in Gold

Meet our Pal St. Gerard, the patron of expectant mothers! Mr Gerard was born in Italy and lived a short but meaningful life. His prayers today are sought for the children, unborn children, women in childbirth, mothers, expectant mothers & motherhood, hallelujah ladies! (It also helps that this little guy is extremely good looking in all it's round form!)

St Gerard was said to be responsible for a number of miracles throughout his life but his legend lives on for one particular miracle that relates to a woman in labor (Let's be honest... we're all hoping for miracles at that time!)

RINGS

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 info@lalunarose.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.

All items in the La Luna Rose shop clearly label the length of the chain used for that design. Unless otherwise stated, all La Luna Rose necklaces are adjustable in length by 2" / 5cm.  All necklaces in our Essentials collection have a finer chain and are adjustable y 1"/2.5cm in length.

BRACELETS

Beaded Bracelets - La Luna Rose Sundown Sandy beaded bracelets are fastened with an adjustable clasp giving two size options for the 'average' wrist. One sits at a total circumference of approx 16cm and the other at 18.5cm. As all our pieces are individually hand-made, this may vary slightly. If you are concerned about your desired size, please feel free to email us & we can measure one up specifically for you in the design you will be ordering.

If you are concerned about your desired size, please feel free to email us & we can measure one up specifically for you. 

La Luna Rose Sideshow Sally Beaded Bracelets are constructed with a 'loop' system meaning that they do not open up completely but can be adjusted largely in size from a small wrist size measuring 14cm circumference to a larger wrist measuring 19cm circumference. To open them just pull at the end of the beaded section and to close them once on your wrist, pull the tassel heads gently. Again, if you are unsure please feel free to email us here & we can help you work out your size.
