Whether you’re actively shopping for an engagement ring, yourself, or just daydreaming… the analysis paralysis can be too real. There are So. Many. Styles. of engagement rings (and wedding bands, and anniversary gifts, and…) to choose from—but when the sky’s the limit, how do you even begin to figure out you or your love’s aesthetic? Well, today the help of the ethical, affordable lab-created diamond company, Clean Origin, we’re taking a different approach—we’re looking to the stars.
For most of us, zodiac signs and astrology feel like a fun thing to check in on and read about. I’ve always loved reading my horoscope, and trying to decide how much I align with my sun sign (I’m a Leo 🔥 and I think it’s pretty spot-on). But when faced with an endless array of jewelry options, your sun sign (or moon, or rising sign), might be just the lens that helps you narrow them down. For example, are you looking for something modern? Or vintage? White gold? Or yellow gold? A classic solitaire or a romantic emerald cut? Or an outside-the-box colored stone? Let’s see if astrology can help us figure that out!
Engagement Rings And Anniversary Gifts For Every Sign Of The Zodiac
It’s worth pointing out that what most of us know about astrology is our sun sign. Your sun sign is based on where the sun was in the sky during the month(ish) in which you were born. But, there’s way more to your birth chart than just that. You’ll see that we’re offering you our best ideas based on your sun sign… but if it doesn’t feel quite right, you should look up your moon and rising signs, because you might feel more aligned with those signs than you ever knew (you can use sites like astrology.com and Co-Star to figure out all your details). They say your sun sign tells about your confidence, self-image, and sense of identity, your moon is more about your emotions, and your rising sign defines your outward expression. It’s the full package of your signs and astrological chart that is said to make up… well… you.
So, let’s see what the stars might have to say about your style…
Aries ♈️: March 21 – April 19
As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries folks are known for being almost obsessed with winning and coming in first. It would make perfect sense for an Aries to seek the newest, most on-trend pieces, while still honoring tradition and a classic vibe. Keep in mind that your Aries love is bold, ambitious, and takes challenges head-on… they want jewels that stand out, but don’t slow them down.
Taurus ♉️: April 20 – May 20
Taureans are known for being the most stubborn sign of the zodiac… so the first step is probably to actually ask your Taurus love for their input before you start shopping. They’re practical and level-headed, but also a little bit self-indulgent. You can expect a Taurus to fall for the finer things in life, like this glittery Kensington Ring that really stands out.
Gemini ♊️: May 21 – June 20
Geminis can change their moods and their minds often and easily—mostly because of their endless curiosity and nonstop exploration. Geminis are also known for loving jewelry… I’ve even known a few in my life who would happily wear a ring on every finger. Lean into their nature by seeking interesting elements like mixed metals, twisted bands, and other subtle and surprising details.
Cancer ♋️: June 21 – July 22
A caring nature, strong loyalty, and keen intuition are all traits of a Cancer. Their dream jewelry will have a touch of romance, tradition, and nostalgia. And while Cancer sign folks might be stereotypically known to be homebodies, when they go out, they’ll want to catch the spotlight, just a little bit.
Leo ♌️: July 23 – August 22
Fire signs like Leos are known for their big, bold nature. They are creative, feisty, and deeply loyal. You can definitely expect your Leo to want to stand out, make a statement, and frankly go-big-or-go-home when it comes to their jewelry. Lean into colored gems and unique features that will make them pop.
Virgo ♍️: August 23 – September 22
Virgos are all about the perfect details. As an earth sign, they’re practical and grounded. Their affinity for functionality means they prefer jewelry that can be worn day-in and day-out, and a nod to classic styles will sing to their Virgo hearts.
Libra ♎️: September 23 – October 22
Your Libra love is driven by beauty, balance, and peace. They’re level-headed, even-keeled, and diplomatic above all else. When it comes to their jewelry choices, seek something elegant and symmetrical (some of them can be quite literal with their love of balance!) rather than vintage or flowery.
Scorpio ♏️: October 23 – November 21
Scorpios are known for being deep, sensual, and intense, but once you break down the walls around your Scorpio, you’ll be granted access to their deep well of emotions, and endless loyalty to those they love. Think drama, tradition, and a touch of romance as you shop for a ring or gift for your Scorpio love.
Sagittarius ♐️: November 22 – December 21
Sagittarius folks are known for being optimistic, positive, and adventurous. All that positive energy feeds their extroverted and outgoing nature. Seek something a bit off the beaten path and unique to appease their idealistic and imaginative selves.
Capricorn ♑️: December 22 – January 19
When you think of your Capricorn love, you probably think of their reliability, determination, and ambition. You might also think about their practical mindset—maybe they’ve even told you that they don’t need fancy jewelry… but you know better. Stick with traditional and classic pieces that will fit right into your Capricorn’s life.
Aquarius ♒️: January 20 – February 18
Quirky, outside the box thinking, and uncompromising in the pursuit of fresh trends—if you love an Aquarius, you know. The jewelry they wear can be nothing short of eye-catching and creative. A traditional diamond won’t do—look for surprising shapes, cuts, and colors instead.
Pisces ♓️: February 19 – March 20
This water sign is known for its romantic, mysterious, and sensitive nature. With imaginations that feed their creative pursuits, your Pisces love will be drawn towards jewelry with soft shapes and subtle nods to vintage vibes.
