When it comes to finding an engagement ring, there are many things to consider. The stone, the profile and whether it ties in nicely with your partner’s everyday style, to name a few. With that being said, the world of engagement ring shopping is a minefield & one that you can quickly get wrong. With so many options available to you, it can become very overwhelming.
However, there are ways that you can narrow down the buying process to ensure they love their piece. Engagement rings based on Zodiac signs, for instance, give the purchase even more meaning than the initial ‘a lifetime of love’. If they are spiritual about the Zodiac philosophy, chances are they’ll love this concept.
In today’s article, we will help you find an engagement ring based on your partner’s Zodiac sign. By giving you the meaning behind each sign, you’ll soon see that the gemstones have beauty both inside and out. Not to mention, if your soon-to-be wears their assigned gemstone, it’s said to bring them good fortune.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Those that are Aquarians will resonate with the Amethyst. A classic deep purple stone that is often known as an exotic and mysterious treasure. Aquarians are deep-thinking, intellectual and natural problem solvers. While they are often introverted, they can also come out of their shell, making for a confident and energetic personality.
Our top pick for Aquarians is this Precious 9ct Yellow Gold with Amethyst & Diamond Shape Ring. This stunning setting of amethysts and diamonds makes for a vibrant contrast complemented beautifully by 9ct yellow gold plating.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Piscearians have the joy of wearing the stunningly crisp Aquamarine. A light and mesmerising light aqua, this stone closely connects with natural healing and breathing. Piscearians are forgiving, kind, caring and selfless. They’re fantastic for listening and confiding in as they understand people’s emotional states.
Our aquamarine Zodiac engagement rings make for a stunning composition next to white gold or platinum. This Precious 9ct White Gold with Aquamarine & Diamond Pave Ring offers a blue and silver combination that shimmers in every light.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Next on our list of engagement rings based on the Zodiac sign we have Aries. While those born in March can enjoy the Aquamarine, we move on to the diamond for April. Arians are incredibly independent, are goal-driven and offer determination and intelligence, making for great leaders. Not to mention, they’re kindhearted and confident too.
For this date range, the engagement ring we have chosen is the Lucille 0.50ct E/SI1 Pear & Brilliant Diamond Platinum Ring. This stunning ring holds brilliant diamonds in a pear-shaped setting. Offering an alluring design that’s both unique and ultra-luxurious.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
The Taurus Zodiac sign engagement ring uses the Emerald. The poised and utterly beautiful gemstone is known as the symbol of truth and love. Taurians themselves are reliable, generous and patient. Their hardworking attitude is due to being grounded and practical. They’ll reluctantly give up on any task given as they’re determined to reach their goals.
We have chosen the Precious 9ct Yellow Gold Ring with Emerald & Diamond Pave Deco Ring for the Emerald. Incorporating both emeralds with diamonds, topped off with luscious yellow gold, makes for a match made in heaven.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Next up, we have Gemini, which resonates with a range of gemstones, including the Emerald and the pearl or moonstone for June. However, this doesn’t change that Geminians are clever and versatile. Although sometimes tense, they tend to be enthusiastic and have a great sense of humour.
For the Gemini person, we have chosen the Precious 9ct Yellow Gold with White Pearl & Diamond Pave Ring. A stunning engagement ring option that combines white pearls with vibrant yellow gold and diamonds for an extra glistening.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Then we have the month of the crab. Cancerians are known to have connections to pearls and the moonstone. Their personality traits are loyalty, imagination, empathy, and great listeners. Cancerians get quickly attached to those close to them, making them the best kind of people to be friends with as they won’t dishonour your friendship.
For the engagement rings based on the Zodiac sign of Cancer, we could go for the Gemini’s ring or showcase Shaun Leane’s Cherry Blossom Collection. Designed for every beautiful bride, this range combines lustrous pearls with 925 sterling silver for a crisp and elegant look, and the ring below is no exception.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Now for the lions. Leonians are compatible with the gemstone Ruby. Not to mention, the people with this Zodiac sign are brave, natural-born leaders with confidence and creativity. People instantly want to follow them, but in a way that feels right. They can unite a group of people with their positivity while also motivating them.
Our engagement ring for the Zodiac sign Leo is the Precious 9ct White Gold with Ruby & Diamond Cluster Ring. Pairing together rubies with diamonds only makes the red hues pop even more. Watch as this ring shimmers in every type of light for a daring and vibrant effect.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo individuals look best when wearing Peridot when in August and the deep blues of Sapphire in September. These gorgeous colours make for an eye-catching finish. Virgo people are known for being kind, hardworking and highly loyal. They are great people to have in your life as they are always the first person you’ll want to turn to in times of need.
The ring we have chosen for Virgo people is Precious 9ct White Gold with Sapphire & Diamond Pave Deco Ring. Sapphires are known for their wisdom and serenity that is given off when in close contact with them, and this is definitely apparent in their appearance. This calming looking stone boasts nothing but luxury and extravagance.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra people resonate with the Opal. Libra people are known as being the fair Zodiac. By ensuring feuds never break out and always looking at both perspectives, they are great people to confide in. They are hopeless romantics that love to dress cheerfully to input positivity.
For Libra people, we have chosen the delightful Precious 9ct Yellow Gold with Opal, Blue Topaz & Green Amethyst Cluster Ring. Encompassing a trio of gemstones doesn’t take away from the gorgeous central Opal that exudes indulgence.
Scorpio Dates (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpions are spoilt for choice when it comes to their stone options! However, Opal or Tourmaline tends to be the main two. Scorpio people are passionate and intense with their emotions. They are very loyal and great people to make friends with. They are also known for their ambition and resourcefulness.
The ring we have matched with Scorpions is Precious 9ct Yellow Gold with Diamond & Opal Ring, which pairs yellow gold with a large opal stone that is then finished off with shimmering diamonds for a standout appearance.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarians resonate closely with the Citrine stone. Fiery like this gemstone, Sagittarians are outgoing, confident and love adventure. Sagittarians tend to juggle several projects at once; however, if something didn’t go right, they’d always see it as a lesson instead of a failure. They’re open-minded and have a cup half full kind of personality.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20)
Capricorns relate closely to a few blue gemstones: Cubic Zircon, Tanzanite, & Turquoise. Capricorns are a lot more serious than most other Zodiac signs. They offer leadership skills, have a lot of self-control and are self-disciplined, making them great managers with a business mindset. They will always be there for those close to them and are also goal-driven.
