Hailing from Northern Italy, this Chica's instagram and endless European adventures will make you want to jump on a plane to Italy before you can yell GELATO! We first discovered Elisa when she jumped into our inbox one hot sunny afternoon and after a few chats, she officially joined our Lunacita's crew. We've been dreaming up a business trip to Italy ever since.... watch this space! For now, meet this creative lady-boss who manages to juggle a life in the creative world and travel around her local countries whenever she gets the chance!
Hey Elisa, Thanks for joining us we're so stoked to have you on board! First things first, where abouts did you grow up?
I was born and raised in a country near Milan called Casatenovo. Although for work reasons and also because I love it I’m searching for a new home in Milan
What is your favourite memory of your hometown?
I love my country because it’s a small town where I know most of my peers with whom I established deep friendships since I was little girl
Any favourite beaches or lakes that we should know about in that area?! We love waterholes!
In my region, Lombardy, in northern Italy, there are many lakes. Among the most beautiful and famous there are the Como Lake and Lecco Lake.
Where do you live at the moment and what bought you there?
I still live in my home but the goal is to move me to Milan next year.
Can you tell us a little bit about what you get up to with you Monday – Friday?
I’m a graphic designer and I work for an Influencer Marketing Agency in Milan. I love my work and my colleagues. In the evening after work I love to go to the gym, go out with my friends or read a book.
And what keeps you busy on the weekends?
During the weekend I love to relax doing what I love most: going out with my fiends, sports, reading books, listening to music, beauty treatments and of course shopping :)
Where is the coolest place you have ever travelled to and what made it so rad?
One of the nicest places I've visited is Berlin. I loved that city for its structure, lifestyle and the atmosphere that breathes there. I walked around the city by bike and I could live it both day and night and it impressed me positively: full of art, artists, beautiful locations and attractions and gentle inhabitants.
Favourite travel Memory?
All the travels I've done with my friends are the best memories. A laugh made together or even a stupid thing has become important because I did it with them.
Other than your passport, what 3 items would you never leave home without when heading off on an overseas adventure?
My Camera, a good book and my phone.
Where would you like to travel to in the near future? Whats on the top of your bucket list!?
I wouldn’t want to be discounted but Bali is one of the destinations I would like to visit more. I'm also inspired by Thailand and the Philippines.

Ok we might be a little bias but if you're planning a trip to the magical island of Bali, we're 99.99% sure that Canggu is a must on your 'must stay' list of places to visit. And boy do we know a good villa or 10 to get the holiday REALLY started.....
The guys over at The Luxe Nomad, a property group who host villa's across Asia are a GREAT place to start your 'Villa Shopping' and start getting excited about your upcoming trip! Over the years we've had the pleasure of sipping back on many a cocktail and bintangs in a fair few villa's around the 'Gu and today we're here to share with you 3 of our favourites. Step this way my friends...
Calling all Pasta Lovers, Far & Wide! Centered in our favourite country of Italy, we have created this blog post not only as a little holliday escape around Italy but to help give you a deeper understanding of that carbo-heavy, winter-loving Pasta obsession that I know you all have.
Have you ever wondered where (and why?) those delicious Pasta dumplings served in juicy sauce come from exactly? How bout Spaghetti, is it the long-lost cousin of fettuccine or were they born at the same time in different areas? And delicious potato pasta balls (aka Gnocchi) ummm, HELLO, where on earth did YOU come from!?
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.
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 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 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
LA LUNA ROSE PETITES SIZING
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. To measure a little girls wrist, please wrap a piece around their wrist with 2 fingers underneath. Mark the paper, and lay flat to measure with a ruler.
Our Petites Sideshow Sally Bracelets are adjustable in length and open up to 18cm in circumference. If you don't have a direct wrist to measure, this bracelet system is almost fail safe and accommodates almost all wrist sizes.
Our Petites Sunday Sandy Bracelets measure 12cm in length with 3 options of length within the clasp system.
Our La Luna Fiesta Bracelets measure 14cm in length/circumference and all have the ability to have any of our La Luna Rose charms added to them.
Our Petites Chain Bracelets measure 15cm in length with an smaller loop at 12.5cm. If you need larger, feel free to order an adults size.
Petites Rings - Our Petites range also offers rings for little girls. Please measure your childs finger first to ensure you are ordering the correct size. 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.
Petites Necklaces - Our La Luna Rose Fine Chain Necklace measure 15" in length with an extra size loop at 14". Our La Luna Fiesta Necklaces measure 34cm in length and all have the ability to have any of our La Luna Rose charms added to them.
