Jewelry for Every Astrological Sign

by Molly Simms

Jun 10, 2016

With some astrological know-how, you can pick the perfect accessory for every sign.


As far as thoughtful gifts are concerned, it’s hard to go wrong with jewelry. But the wrong pick can elicit fake enthusiasm, coupled with the recipient hiding your carefully selected bauble in a drawer, where it’ll never see the light of day again. Here's one clever way to give them something they’re much more likely to treasure: select jewelry that’s aligned with the tastes and tendencies of their astrological sign. Whether you’re shopping for a sentimental Cancer, a detail-oriented Libra, or a gutsy Leo, you’ll find the right accessory in our zodiac-inspired shopping list.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19)

Aquarians want jewelry as vibrant and innovative as they are, with vivid colors and a modern edge. They'll love cruising art galleries while wearing this minimal, laser-cut ring ($40 for a set of three; buy it here) and coordinating angular bangle ($20; buy it here).

Pisces (Feb. 20 – March 20)

Dreamy Pisces craves accessories with a magical slant. This gold crown ring ($45; buy it here) has the right amount of romance and whimsy to get their imagination going.

Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Aries is creative and trendsetting, but you won't find them sporting accessories that are outlandish or overly eye-catching. They prefer to keep things lower-key – these brass drop tassel earrings ($42; buy them here) and matching necklace ($72; buy it here) strike the right balance.

Taurus (April 21 – May 21)

Overt sexiness is not Taurus’ thing: They’d rather keep their look casual and comfortable. They lean toward classic, high-quality pieces that will stand the test of time; this understated ear cuff in sturdy sterling silver ($42; buy it here) makes the cut.

Gemini (May 22 – June 21)

Given their multifaceted personalities, it's no surprise that Geminis change up their style with their moods. You'll often find them piling on bold accessories (the more, the better), like these colorful wooden bangles ($27 each; buy them here).

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Sentimental Cancers are drawn to pieces that remind them of home. With a sweet city-inspired ring ($89; buy it here), they’ll never feel too far away from their favorite place, no matter the distances they travel.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 21)

Statement-making accessories are Leo's weakness. They want pieces that show off their fearless personality and major sense of style. This bright, wrapped-rope necklace ($122, buy it here) will get everyone talking – which is exactly what Leos live for.

Virgo (Aug. 22 – Sept. 23)

Hyper-modern, edgy accessories aren’t ideal for Virgos – they’re more inclined to pick up vintage-inspired items with a ladylike bent. Stick to elegant shapes, like this brass cuff ($120; buy it here) that evokes a retro sunset.

Libra (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23)

Libras are finicky about details, so they're perfectionists when picking out adornments. They love feminine accessories they can dress up, especially anything featuring florals. A laser-cut acrylic brooch ($52; buy it here) hits all the right notes.

Scorpio (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22)

Edgy and sexy, Scorpios want streamlined pieces with plenty of polish. They don't want anyone to be distracted by bright colors or loud prints, so neutral metallics will be perfect. This massive rose-gold ring ($178; buy it here) suits their fierce nature just fine.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23 – Dec. 22)

Sagittarians are known for being the athletes of the zodiac, so something with a sporty edge is key. They’re also infamous for their kooky sense of humor; this playful necklace ($83; buy it here) made from climbing rope will be their go-anywhere item.

Capricorn (Dec. 23 – Jan. 20)

Conservative Capricorns want accessories with a pedigree, so buy them a vintage keepsake or an updated classic, like this delicate pearl ring ($268; buy it here). And be prepared to drop some cash: Capricorns are fans of quality pieces that scream luxury. Lead image by Mountain of Greatness.
