About Us


Luna & Stella, founded in 2008 by Suzanne Ellis Wernevi, blends its own contemporary heirlooms with antique and estate pieces. Influenced by the moon and star icons used in Victorian jewelry, we design fine jewelry that is symbolic of loved ones, using birthstones and other symbols to represent the relationships between parents, grandparents, children, partners, siblings, and friends. A passionate collector of antique jewelry, Suzanne curates a selection of antique lockets, vintage charms, and  Estate stacking rings chosen to layer with Luna & Stella’s collection of modern talismans, charms, symbols and birthstones. Luna & Stella is based in Providence, RI, the historic jewelry manufacturing capital of the United States. Our jewelry has been featured in The New York Times, Vogue, People, Esquire, The Boston Globe and The Today Show. 


Founder Suzanne Ellis Wernevi, building on years of merchandising and product development experience in roles at J.Crew, Bally, RedEnvelope, and Victoria’s Secret, is the head Treasure Hunter.  Studio Manager Maddie Gray, a certified gemologist, keeps the ship running smoothly and our clients happy.  Suzanne’s mom, Caroline Ellis, writes the questionably business-related but always interesting Suzanne’s Mom’s Blog
