Find Your Diamond Jewelry Style Inspiration Based On Your Zodiac Sign
There are diamonds for ever sign, you just have to look toward the stars.By Elana Zajdman |
It’s no secret that astrology dates way back to the beginning of civilization. In fact, Babylonian astrology is considered the first known organized form, which began in the second millennium B.C. With countless apps like Co-Star, Sanctuary and The Pattern, horoscopes are now available at your fingertips. With all the anxieties, complexities, successes and shortcomings life may throw your way, many find comfort in their zodiac chart to help guide them as they navigate from day to day. Many diamond jewelers have taken note and have their own iterations of zodiac jewelry for each of the 12 signs.
While wearing jewelry talismans with your astrology sign or your loved ones’ won’t be going out of style anytime soon, this look isn’t for everyone. We spoke to expert astrologist Lisa Stardust, who weighs in on each of the astrological signs below. Whether you’re an Aries perfectionist who strives to be the best or a Gemini battling between two separate entities, there is beauty and harmony to be found in each of the signs—not to mention some serious bling to invest in.

“Ruled by Mars, they are known as the initiator. Much like the firstborn of a family, these rams lead by example and always strive to be not only the first, but the best, at everything they do.”
Mariah Carey, Jessica Chastain, Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, Elton John, Saoirse Ronan, Diana Ross and Reese Witherspoon, are a few of the incredible leading stars who fall under Aries. When it comes to the best diamond jewelry for this sign, look to the staples and invest in classic pieces that will go with everything and last for a lifetime.

“The Bull is one of two signs ruled by Venus and represents the earthy, physical, sensual influence of the planet of love and money. Taurus is the creative hard worker of the zodiac, who uses their immense energy to make beautiful things for the world to admire.”
Adele, Cher, Gal Gadot, Gigi Hadid, Lizzo and Barbara Streisand are all Taurus sisters. When shopping for diamond jewelry fit for a Taurus, look for earthy elements, ornate and sculptural shapes that intertwine, and lots of texture.

“Ruled by the winged messenger, Mercury, the twins are the only dual sign, meaning they are two separate entities bound together as a symbol. Known for their dualistic and chatty nature, the twins are master communicators.”
It makes perfect sense that powerhouse design-duo and jewelry lovers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are fellow Gemini. Awkwafina, Angelina Jolie, Emily Ratajkowski and Brooke Shields are also jewelry loving Geminis. One of the most intriguing signs in the zodiac, this sign is all about opposing elements, so we suggest turning to diamonds that imbue harmony through clashing masculine and feminine detailing, hard-edges with inverted set diamonds, softer-rounded curves and contrasting diamond shapes. Play with shine here and mix matte metals with high-shine pieces, pavé diamonds and single large-scale diamonds that do all the talking.

“Ruled by the Moon, the crabs tend to use their intuition to guide them in the darkest times. Looking at the world sideways and through night vision allows the crab to be protective and use their sensitivities to understand the world.”
From Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande to Solange Knowles, Busy Phillips and Meryl Streep, these Cancer queens have a lot more than wearing some of the most incredible diamond jewelry on the red carpet in common. To play off their protective nature, look at diamond pieces that are set in ornate yet simplistic settings with larger curved shapes that embrace smaller shapes. There is something truly unique about the duality in a design that’s both embellished with a sense of subtle minimalism.

“The Sun rules the friendly, prideful Lion, whose generous, loyal and artistic nature is admired by all. They are ruled by the ego with the sun as their planet, and so they tend to instinctively put themselves first— a thing others can learn from.”
Viola Davis, Greta Gerwig, Jennifer Lawrence, J.LO, Madonna, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex and Dame Helen Mirren are just a few of the A-List Leos. The artistic Leo should look for artful shapes, asymmetry, articulated detailing, and rare, colored and fancy diamonds.

“As the fair maiden who looks down on Earth from a cloud, this Winged messenger (Mercury) uses its analytical nature to understand and observe the world around them. Virgos are not as concerned with virginity as they are with purification.”
Diamond jewelry collectors, Beyoncé, Blake Lively, Michelle Williams and Zendaya are all Virgos and individually have worn some of the most iconic diamonds in the world. Virgos are known to be perfectionists and very detail oriented. Virgos should opt for diamond jewelry with simple yet detailed designs that are anything but boring. With their systematic, practical thought process, go for graphic pieces that have a simplicity to them. Three-dimensional elements that can be worn every day and into the evening, so you can transition from office to cocktail attire, will keep Virgo’s mind at ease.

“As the second sign ruled by Venus, Libras (an Air sign) is represented by the scales of Justice. They are concerned with keeping a fair balance in areas concerning love and money. They are the only sign whose symbol is inanimate, so they can truly be objective.”
Cardi B, Gwyneth Paltrow, Naomi Watts, tennis icon Serena Williams and even Jeff Goldblum (no stranger to wearing an incredible diamond brooch himself) are all Libras. This sign should look for diamond jewelry that is weighted with symmetry and balance.

“As a water sign ruled by Mars, Scorpios are known to carry out anything they set their minds and hearts to doing through their undying dedication and passion. They are almost eerily intuitive and intensely loyal.”
Maggie Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Katy Perry, Tracee Ellis Ross, Emma Stone, Amandla Stenberg, Chloe Sevigny and Tilda Swinton are a few famous Scorpios who can be spotted in some spectacular diamonds both on and off the screen. Play off this water sign’s dedication, passion and fierce loyalty with diamond initials of loved ones or a locket with room for a photo of that special someone. Alternatively, there’s something particularly significant about commemorating a special moment or landmark in one’s life with a classic diamond ring.

“The Archer is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of expansion. Sagittarius likes to travel the world, learn new philosophies, try exotic flavors and tends to have a flair for gambling in all areas of life. They combine exploration with wisdom.”
Miley Cyrus, Jonah Hill, Katie Holmes, Zoe Kravitz, Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift and Jay-Z are all Sagittarians. Play off the Archer’s love of taking risks with diamond jewelry that is anything but simple. Opt for colored diamonds, unique cuts, interesting shapes, and elements that move at one with your body.

“The hardworking sea-goat ruled by taskmaster Saturn has a practical and mature sensibility around work and relationships. They are devoted to ensuring everyone and everything in their lives is taken care of and push others to succeed.”
Blue Ivy Carter, Timothée Chalamet, Diane Keaton, Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, Former First Lady Michelle Obama and Dolly Parton are a few of the celebrated Capricorns. This sign is all about focusing on updated classics you can pass down to future generations. We suggest looking for timeless diamond rings that you can stack together, diamond hoops with exaggerated shapes and single diamond stud earrings (different sizes and cuts are encouraged) that create a beautiful movement as you wear them.

Birthday: February 10
“As an air sign ruled by Saturn, the cupbearers are known to question the limits and bounds of society through innovative and humanitarian activism. They are the visionaries who work on the plans of information rather than emotion.”
Jennifer Aniston, Alicia Keys, Oprah, Yara Shahidi, Megan Thee Stallion and Harry Styles are all fellow Aquarians. As one of the most creative signs in the zodiac, this is a sign that they should have fun with their jewelry. Opt for interesting settings, varying diamond sizes, and unique designs that feel different.

“Ruled by Jupiter, the fish represents the fruits of the imagination. They are the creative visionaries of the zodiac, deeply empathic to the point of being psychic, they staunchly rely on intuition rather than facts.”
Drew Barrymore, Justin Bieber, Millie Bobby Brown, Camila Cabello, Amanda Gorman, Rihanna and Olivia Rodrigo are all Pisces visionaries. As one of the most imaginative signs in the zodiac, Pisces should invest in unique shapes, interesting settings and lots of statement pieces that all evoke a sense of individuality.
