Choosing the right engagement ring is a big step. With so many style options and design choices available, making a selection can often feel overwhelming. While considering shape, color, and style, it’s also important to consider your (or your future fiance’s) zodiac sign when choosing an engagement ring.
Knowing the ins and outs of your (or your partner’s) zodiac sign can help you take a step in the right direction. Should your engagement ring be bold or subtle? Should it feature a sparkling colorful stone or a classic, clear diamond? Let’s take a look at the best styles of engagement rings to match your zodiac sign!
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius — while this zodiac sign literally starts with the word “aqua,” it’s actually the last air sign of the zodiac. Aquarius is represented by the mystical healer, a water bearer who bestows life or water on the land. This sign holds fierce, highly unique, and exciting qualities.
With that being said, when choosing an engagement ring for an Aquarius, don’t be afraid to think outside of the box. Select a stunning diamond engagement ring with a marquise cut or emerald cut. Or, you could consider creating a custom engagement ring with the help of an online builder or professional jeweler.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
The Pisces sign is one of the most empathetic, sensitive, and intuitive signs of the zodiac. Pisces absorb all of the moments they experience in life, as lessons. Joy, pain, hope, and fear are often looked at from an entirely different perspective through the eyes of a Pisces. Because of their unique sensitivity, a solitaire engagement ring or pear-shaped ring may perfectly appeal to the Pisces in your life.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries is no stranger to friendly competition. This dynamic fire sign loves to be number one. With bold and ambitious qualities, an extravagant ring choice will be best suited for an Aries. A stunning pave ring is a beautiful choice for an Aries. Featuring dozens of sparkling stones, a pave ring will do just the trick to impress your special someone.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Those born within the Taurus zodiac adore a life of relaxation and being pampered. There is no other sign more likely to indulge in a six-hour bath and then head to the spa for a luxurious Swedish massage. A life filled with serene views, calming sounds, and peace is ideal for a Taurus.
The best engagement ring for this sign is the classic halo ring, cushioned by dozens of smaller stones. With a halo ring style, your Taurus will have the best of both worlds — a breathtaking ring that effortlessly sets a serene mood, while still having just the right amount of razzle-dazzle.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
The Gemini zodiac is a complete experience. Playful, sensationally erratic, and spontaneous is the best way to describe a Gemini. While driven by insatiable curiosity, this air sign was interested in so many pursuits that it had to double itself! While energetic and versatile, Gemini’s can also have a quiet and contemplative side. Because of their unshakable loyalty, the best ring choice for a Gemini is a platinum eternity band. An eternity band will effortlessly display a Gemini’s loyalty and dedication to their partner, while also emphasizing the undeniable vibrancy of this sign.
Cancer (June 21 – June 22)
The Cancer zodiac is represented by the crab, seamlessly weaving between the sea and shore. A Cancer has the ability to exist in both emotional and material realms. With a high intuition and ability to manifest in tangible spaces, the best engagement ring choice for a Cancer is a sparkling pear-shaped ring, featuring some color. Consider choosing a center stone that matches you or your partner’s favorite color to go the extra mile with your ring selection.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo’s are known to be loyal, passionate, and infamously dramatic. Represented by the lion, the Leo zodiac is a high-spirited fire sign of the celestial jungle. With confident, charming, and attention-grabbing qualities, an engagement ring for a Leo must have a stunning center stone. Don’t hesitate to choose something more on the unique side or invest in a large gemstone. Regardless of the shape, a ring for a Leo requires a lot of sparkle and a unique element.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgos are down-to-earth and intellectual. With a logical and practical outlook on life, Virgos have a great work ethic and will do everything they can to achieve their goals. A Virgo needs a ring that will give them the best of both worlds and a round-cut diamond will do just that. Featuring a timeless, yet versatile design, the round-cut diamond will perfectly suit the needs and wants of a Virgo.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libras are a breath of fresh air – with a graceful, calming, and meditative element, Libras illuminate an energy that many people naturally gravitate towards. The perfect ring for a Libra is one delicately balanced between grace and serenity. For this zodiac sign, choose a statement-making gemstone that represents peace and tranquility. An aquamarine stone is an ideal choice for a Libra who manifests the calmness of the cool, summer breeze.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios are fiery, bold, and super energetic. Their strong sense of self often makes them irresistible to those around them. A marquise-shaped diamond featuring distinctive edges and an eye-catching shape is a flawless engagement ring choice for a Scorpio. With modern flair and classic romance, the marquise-shaped diamond ring is simply breathtaking.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
The bright, fun-loving, and free spirit of the Sagittarius calls for an engagement ring that matches exactly that. While the shape of a ring is an important factor, the best ring for a Sagittarius is one that dances with a lot of sparkles and shoots for the stars. Ensure the engagement ring for your Sagittarius is truly magical and one of a kind. Focus on choosing an eye-catching engagement ring that has the perfect amount of sparkle, shine, and fantasy.
