At Luna & Rose, we truly believe sharing, exchanging, debating are the best ways to grow together. That's why, to celebrate Earth Day, we're introducing you to our favourite people who inspire and teach us everyday thanks to their advice. Kate Hall is definitely part of that list, as we love reading her 'What I learned this week' posts, updating us on everything we need to know to be as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible.
To get to know her a little better, we asked her a few questions:
- Where abouts do you currently call home?
Red Beach, New Zealand.
- What’s your favourite part of having such a loyal following?
I have awesome chats everyday about all sorts of topics, I have people to ask for advice whenever I need it, and support to call on for problems or general wins that we can celebrate together! It's also super heartwarming and fueling when I receive messages about my followers making brilliant planet-focused decisions/habits because they learnt something from me - this makes my day.
- Who’s your favourite artist and why? (Musician, painter, designer, anyone!)
Mumford and Sons are my absolute favourite band! I've listened to them ever since I was an early teen. They're emotive, folky, talented, and allow me to listen to their music and get lost in another world (which looks like as stomping barn dance haha).
- Your favourite city in the world?
I loved Leiden, Netherlands.
- How about your favourite beach?
Red Beach: The beach I visit daily (often twice a day)
- 5 things you can’t live without… go!
My animals, my House of Marley bluetooth speaker, my english breakfast tea, my bike, and my compost bin.
- What is your favourite quote?
You can't change the world, but you can change the world for one person.
- What is your best Eco Tip to share with others?
Think before you do: this will allow your mindset to change and all of the eco-habits to flow.
- If you could say one thing to our Mother Earth, what would it be?
You're breathtaking, you're constant, and you're what I fight for everyday.
- What’s one cause that you would want people to rally behind and why?
I'm super passionate about eradicating period poverty in all areas of the world, but particularly locally in New Zealand. Many women cannot manage their periods and have to miss out on education/work/being part of society during their period. This spirals into a complex range of issues. I fully support campaigns like The Good Fund and companies like My Cup NZ who fight against period poverty in New Zealand in such a proactive way.

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.
As much as I would love to take credit for this delicious morsel of goodness I'm about to share with you, I can not. This recipe was sent to me from a friend as I begun a journey of ridding Gluten from my life.... and this guy has been an absolute saviour! For when you CBF cooking, for when you just want 'toast' for dinner, for when you're fighting every craving for a hearty 'carb-a-liscious' meal when your GF and for when you just want to wake up and not eat cereal. Introducing to you, what has deemed to be named 'Life-Changing' Loaf...
Our 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 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.
Luna & Rose chain bracelets also have a 2" adjustable chain length with a clasp. Therefore they have two/three size options for you. They sit at a total circumference of approx 16cm & 17.5cm
