ST NICHOLAS Necklace Pendant :: Who is he?

St Nicholas Patron Saint of Children in Gold

We're pretty stoked on our new collection of Patron Saint Necklace Pendants, and today we thought you might like to get to know the Patron Saint Nicholas a little better.... You may have already heard of him before but, why is he so rad & such a 'Saint'? Step this way my friends....

St Nicholas is the patron saint of Children, Sailors, Merchants and Students. While he has many great yarns behind his name, in todays western culture he is more commonly known as, well, Santa Claus! I hear you saying, how did a guy called Nicholas get a whole day named after him & a figurine of an old dude in a red suit huh? Read on....

St Nicholas gained popularity (and later, his Patron Saint) for such acts as rescuing children from calamity and returning them to the care of their worried families.  

St Nicholas Patron Saint of Children in Sterling Silver

The biggest legend of how St Nicholas become the Patron Saint of Children is one that is most often circulated - perhaps for its obscenity!  It goes a little like this: During a terrible famine in his country of Turkey, a malicious butcher lured three little children into his house, killed them, placed their remains in a barrel to cure and planned to sell them off as ham (Yes, you may vomit right now). Saint Nicholas, was visiting the region at the time to care for the hungry. Not only did he see through the butcher's horrific crime but also resurrected the three boys to life and therein, became the Patron Saint of Children –Yay for not eating mini humans and others thinking they were Ham! 

Other stories of a life protecting Children, explain how St Nicholas found children who had disappeared, were kidnaped, fell into a well, or suffered some other disaster - all to be delivered through the good offices of Saint Nicholas. These momentous occasions have profound and universal appeal which made Nicholas the much valued Guardian of Children around the world.

And so today we wear our Patron Saint of Nicholas pendant as an ode to all of those little friends of ours, remembering their strength, enthusiasm for life and energy they continue to bring to the world around us.

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.
