Luna & Stella means “moon and star” in Italian. Like the relationship between moon and star, our modern birthstone jewelry conveys the connections between ourselves and those we love.
Our Rhode Island based, family-run business was founded in 2009 with the goal of blending great jewelry design with thoughtful meaning. Led by husband-and-wife, Suzanne Ellis Wernevi and Erik Wernevi, the Luna & Stella team believes relationships – between parents, grandparents, children, partners, siblings, and friends – are what life is all about. We use genuine precious and semi-precious birthstones to represent the special person or people in someone’s life and set them into a variety of stylish jewelry designs. Using the best available materials, Luna & Stella crafts pieces at the intersection of fashion and timelessness, making them heirlooms with of-the-moment allure.
Luna & Stella jewelry is completely customizable, which allows our clients to participate in the design process and to create products that are truly personal. We pride ourselves on our personalized customer service and aim to create a unique experience for everyone.
Welcome to Luna & Stella.
