Our new Aperitivo collection is here and includes 4 new Patron Saint necklace pendants. Over the coming weeks we are so excited to shed some light on who we have chosen (After receiving overwhelming suggestions and feedback from you guys!) as our new St pendants and the meaning behind them. Today let's meet St John and learn more about the legend behind his name.....
St. John the Apostle was the son of Zebedee and Salome and was one of the twelve apostles. It is thought that John was the oldest and only apostle to not die like a martyr.
Saint John was deemed as the patron saint of love, loyalty, friendships and authors. He and Peter were the only two apostles sent by Jesus to prepare the final Passover meal which was the last meal for Jesus. During this meal, Saint John sat next to Jesus, leaning on him for support and hence, living up to his name as the saint of loyalty and friendships.
Saint John was the only one of the twelve apostles not to have abandoned his friend Jesus at the hour of his passion. He stood faithfully at the cross when Jesus appointed him guardian of his mother, again, showcasing his love and loyalty to his friend.
After the Assumption of Mary, John went to Ephesus according to the tradition of the Church to honor the promise he had made to Jesus.
St John is THE pendant for all best friends. From sisters to long-time friends to mums and daughters, new bff’s, traveling pals and highschool besties, St John is a beautiful piece to remember the adventures and moments shared with each other. Wear this pendant to celebrate your friendship & as a reminder of all the special people you would do absolutely anything for. Afterall, special relationships really are something to cherish!

All Luna & Rose jewelry is made from certified recycled Sterling Silver that has been processed in Thailand from old scrap metals, computer parts and old jewelry. This is then purified, cleaned and regenerated into out 100% Sterling Silver that we combine with an alloy (to make it stronger – we can’t make jewelry from 100% Sterling Silver!) to make all of our jewelry with. Our Gold pieces are then plated 3 times with 18kt Gold plating. We are currently sourcing a recyclable 18kt Gold recycled material to use also…watch this space!
The production of Luna & Rose pieces stems from designer Rosie Shelton’s passion for a more sustainable way of manufacturing and an ability to create the Luna & Rose collections in a completely closed loop production whereby there is zero waste. Rosie is also passionate about creating connection and transparency with her manufacturing and artisans who create the Luna & Rose designs, making sure the Luna & Rose customers knows exactly who made and how their items were produced. You can find out more on the Luna & Rose Sustainable practises over here.

Scorpio season is around the corner… The most mysterious sign of the Zodiac is right on time for Halloween! We love learning more about the signs each month and we hope you do too. It's time to learn 10 fun facts about our Scorpio pals...
Early in 2020, before the madness of COVID really kicked into 2nd gear, we were lucky enough to open our first retail store in the seaside village of Berawa, Canggu on our favourite island of Bali. Designed by the incredible Becks Harrop Design, and pieced together by a variety of talented humans, we couldn't be happier with how our first retail space has turned out!
We recently launched our new Charity Tee-shirts collection that support 3 incredible Non-profits doing amazing work to give back to the vulnerable communities of Indonesia. It’s extremely important to us to raise awareness about organizations doing good, and the ones we believe in and choose to support through Luna & Rose.
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 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 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)
