With these extraordinary pieces, you can easily shine like a diamond
It’s no secret that even after so many generations have passed, the concepts of mythology, folklore, and astrology still pique the interests of millions of people. These concepts make us believe quite a number of things that are considered out of the ordinary, and one of these is a Roman goddess named Luna. In Roman mythology, Luna is the divine embodiment of the moon, and is believed to have the capability to represent the extent of Roman rule over the world. With its name being derived from the Latin word lucere, which means “to shine”, LVNA founder Drake Dustin believed it was perfect to name his luxury jewelry brand after the Roman deity herself.

This was how he discovered his passion for creating and eventually selling his own high-quality jewelry pieces. What once started as an e-commerce luxury jewelry store created by an artist and jewelry enthusiast is now an established brand that has four stores at premier luxury malls such as Shangri-La Plaza Mall, Ayala Malls Vertis North, Ayala Malls Manila Bay, and Estancia Capitol Commons.
