Did you know: If we don’t act now by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish (by weight) – horrific right?
This shocking fact along with the increase in single use plastic and mass production across the globe, made us really want to do something. Spending a large amount of my time on the island of Bali, the ‘Plastic crisis’ is front & centre of daily life here. The education around what happens to rubbish once it’s placed in waterways, left behind on the beach or thrown out a car window simply does not exist here. Through these Charity Tee’s we have partnered with one of our favourite Non-Profits who are making waves educating the youth of today on what their oceans might look like in the near future if we don’t act NOW. Their education programmes currently run throughout Australia.
#TAKE3FORTHESEA is their international campaign that focuses on spreading the Take 3 vision to countries and communities in all parts of the world. And the beauty of the message is that it is simple and adaptable anywhere!
"Our Mission is to reduce global plastic pollution through education and participation."
Plastic pollution is devastating our oceans and killing innocent wildlife. Take 3 for the Sea are making a difference and their mission is simple: Take 3 pieces of rubbish with you when you leave the beach, waterway or...anywhere and you've made a difference.
By helping spread this important message across the world to remove plastic pollution, we can inspire a new generation to protect our oceans and wildlife.
“It’s our vision to protect wildlife and conserve oceans, waterways and the environment from plastic pollution. We provide education, research and hands-on activities to reduce plastic pollution and promote the transition to a circular economy.” - Tim Silverwood, co-founder & CEO.
Our head designer, Rosie, has designed these T-Shirts for La Luna Rose customers to unite together and help raise awareness around the Global Plastic Pollution crisis. Here at La Luna Rose we are dedicated to help raise awareness for a healthier sustainable planet all while supporting ethically made products. A total of 40% of the retail price of every T-Shirt sold is donated directly to TAKE 3 FOR THE SEA, a non-profit based out of Australia and making waves through their global voice and education around the world. Each T-Shirt purchased educates 7 kids on the future of their planet and the Global Plastic Pollution Crisis that we are in. We’re a huge believer in knowledge & understanding that brings about the change and leads the future so we’re pretty stoked with what we can collectively achieve with these Tee’s.
Made from 100% Organic Cotton & sewn by our small team of artisans, each T Shirt purchased not only donates 40% of the retail price to TAKE 3 FOR THE SEA but also provides jobs to local artisans from the villages of Bali, all the happy humans!

Imagine if we could all spread the word to just 1 person?
We would love to see you wearing your T-Shirt & spreading the love of this campaign. If this is something you stand for, I'm pretty sure your fam & friends will be right behind it as well!

Thank you for supporting our continued efforts to help raise awareness and give back to our precious oceans, you rock! x
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:
|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.
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
If you require any other sizes for any of our items, please just let us know and we will see what we can whip up for you! You can contact us here.
