June 28 (Reuters) - European shares rose on Tuesday as risk appetite improved after China eased its COVID-19 quarantine mandate, while rising oil prices provided an additional boost to energy stocks.

The continent-wide STOXX 600 index .STOXX was up 0.3%, rising for a third straight session. The benchmark index's gains were tempered following a drop in June U.S. consumer confidence that pushed Wall Street lower.

Europe's oil & gas sector .SXEP gained 2% as major producers Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates looked unlikely to be able to boost output significantly.

London's FTSE 100 index .FTSE , which has heavyweight oil producers, rose 0.9% to lead gains among regional peers.

In China, health authorities said the country would halve to seven days its COVID-19 quarantine period for visitors from overseas, with a further three days spent at home.

This was the latest move in a series of gradual easing of COVID-19 curbs that had started to hit the country's economy and bolstered hopes of a resurgence in demand from China, the world's second-biggest economy and top metals consumer.

The basic materials index .SXPP rose 1.2% as iron ore and base metals rallied.

Asia-exposed banks such as HSBC HSBA.L and Standard Chartered STAN.L were among the top boosts to the STOXX 600, while shares of luxury retailers LVMH LVMH.PA and Richemont CFR.S , which rely on China for a major part of their revenue, rose 0.8% and 1.5%, respectively.

"The shock in China is starting to basically improve, but we're still probably four to six months away from understanding if the various economies from U.S., Europe to China are heading for a recession," said Sebastien Galy, a senior macro strategist at Nordea Asset Management.

Equity markets have seen a sharp sell-off this year as investors scrambled to adjust their expectations for economic growth and corporate profits in the wake of soaring inflation and interest rate hikes.

European equities could see a drop between 6.4% and 8.5% in earnings per share this year compared with consensus estimates of a rise of more than 11%, HSBC said on Tuesday.

With the European Central Bank set to raise rates for the first time in a decade next month, its President Christine Lagarde said it will move gradually, but with the option to act decisively on any deterioration in medium-term inflation.

France's Valeo VLOF.PA gained 4% after it won a major contract with BMW BMWG.DE to equip the German carmaker's upcoming electric-vehicle platform with advanced driving assistance systems.
