The twelve signs of the zodiac have long inspired personality profiles and horoscopes, promising to predict your future. In jewelry, zodiac symbols and birthstones are perennially popular choices for a personalized touch. Blue stones are the best match for Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces); pure and simple silver jewelry suits Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn); delicate, sparkling jewels set in rose gold reflect Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius); and opulent, gold designs make Fire signs shine (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius).
Astrology is the millennia-old study of celestial objects and their astronomical movements, using ancient theories to divine how this cosmic dance affects our lives. Many believe that the far-reaching power of the planets and the shifting energy in the universe can write our future. Increasingly, jewelry designers are capturing the allure of astrology by incorporating gemstones with hidden astrological meanings into their pieces.
