Elisa Riva - La Luna Rose accessories Lunacita Interview Ambassador Programme

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 :) Elisa Riva - La Luna Rose accessories Lunacita Interview Ambassador Programme

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.

Elisa Riva - La Luna Rose accessories Lunacita Interview Ambassador Programme 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.

And who are you taking with you!?

My best friends, of course!

Sizing Guide

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.

NECKLACES

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.

La Luna Rose Colour Creator Cuff Bracelets are also fastened with an adjustable clasp giving two size options for the 'average' wrist based on a wider design. One sits at a total circumference of 17.5cm and the other at 19cm. These fit slightly larger than ou 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. 

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.

Solid Bracelets - Adults Our Solid bracelets are available in 3 sizes and measure 18cm in total circumference for a size SMALL, 19.8cm for a MEDIUM and 21cm for a LARGE. If you would like to check your wrist size, grab a strip of paper, string or tape measure and you can measure your wrist with 3 fingers underneath the string also. If you are still unsure and would like something smaller/bigger made for you, send us an email here and we will see what we can create.

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 17cm, 18cm and 19cm.

*For the Chunky Monkey bracelet we suggest a tighter fit. To be sure of your size here, measure your wrist circumference and use this to order the correct size as shown on the product page.

LA LUNA ROSE ESSENTIALS SIZING

All measurements are on the product pages. Our Essentials necklaces are available in 16" length with an smaller loop at 15" and 18" with an smaller loop at 17".

Our Essentials Bracelets measure 17cm in length with an smaller size loop at 15cm.

Our Essentials Rings are offered in size 6, 7, 8 and 9. We are more than happy to make smaller or larger sizes on request, please just email us here.

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 abiloity 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.
