It’s a well-established fact that shopping for an engagement ring is no easy task and requires factoring in a whole lot of important criteria. From the cut of the diamond to the setting, the ring size and the budget, the whole process of picking out an engagement ring needs in-depth research and a solid investment of time. One of the most important factors to consider, is of course, the personal style and preference of the person who is going to be wearing the ring. It’s a lifelong commitment after all! Besides fashion trends, personal style is also defined by lifestyle and personality traits, and one way to identify the key traits would be to seek out what the stars have to say!
Whether you’re buying a ring for your special someone or simply browsing to find your dream ring, astrology can help you narrow down your choices and select a ring that will not only grab eyeballs but also bring the wearer prosperity, luck and happiness. Here’s what you need to know to be able to find the right engagement ring for your sign.
Know your Zodiac Sign
First things first, if you don’t already know what your star sign is, then do not worry because it’s no tough task to figure it out. What’s slightly trickier to figure out is everything that there is to know about your sign. There’s simply too much material out there when it comes to zodiac signs and astrology, and quite frankly it could get a bit overwhelming. While there will be a lot of overlap when it comes to in depth analysis of the signs, there will also likely be contradictions. If you’re not too keen on all that excess reading and still want to place your trust on astrology when it comes to picking out the most important piece of jewellery, then you’re in luck because we have just the comprehensive guide you need.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Aquarians are fiercely independent, and hate to go where the crowd goes. When it comes to engagement rings, they don’t want the usual expensive bling and much rather go with minimalisticbeauty.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Pisces by nature are known to be deep and mysterious personalities. What’s more deep and mysterious than avintagedesign when it comes to rings?
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Bold and beautiful is the way to go for an Aries. You’ll know the ring is the one when it exudes pure luxury.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Taureans are grounded people looking for one, and one thing only - security. Pick a design that reflects this sentiment - such as a cushion cut.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
The youthful personality of a Gemini is attracted to colours. Going for a stone other than diamond might actually not be a bad idea here!

Ever so romantic, a Cancer personality is passionate and sensitive. Elegant designs featuring pearls might just be the answer when looking at engagement rings.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
If it doesn’t grab attention instantly, it’s not meant for a Leo. Pick the biggest diamond, go for three stones or perhaps a halo - but make sure it’s flashy!
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Virgos love understated sophistication. Pick something timeless such as an emerald cut or a solitaire.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Balance, aesthetics and tranquility are all the qualities you need to look out for when purchasing anything for a Libran. Add some blues to the mix and you’re set.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Scorpios are all about the power - their engagement ring too should emanate that sense of power and be a statement piece.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
The adventurous spirit of a Sagittarius requires that their ring not just be beautiful but quite practical in design as well. Pick a ring that’s easy to maintain and won’t run the risk of damage along the ride.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Capricorns are known as old souls, so it’s wise to stick to traditional designs that are likely to never go out of fashion.
