Choosing an engagement ring is a difficult task- take a look at which engagement ring suits your star sign…
Choosing a style of engagement ring is pretty tricky…(Unless your partner surprised you with one – in that case, you’re off the hook)
But otherwise there are A LOT of shapes and styles to choose from.
There’s the cut and clarity of diamond to settle on. Then there’s the metal, the band, the carat, the stone. Cluster or single set? Emerald or marquise? It’s a big sparkly minefield.
For those having trouble finding the perfect engagement ring, or for those trying to find the right one to pop the question with, celebrity jeweller Vashi has a suggestion.
“Look to the stars and find inspiration in astrology,” says Vashi. According to the jewellery designer ,a woman’s perfect enagement ring is linked to the characteristics of her star sign.
“A truly unique engagement ring, reflecting certain aspects of your lover’s zodiac sign and personality, will help ensure the right jewellery choice for life. It’s in her horoscope.”
So let’s put Vashi’s theory to the test. Here are all 12 star sign engagement rings below. Let us know if you think your horoscope ring describes you perfectly.
Virgo – 24 August to 22 September
“The Virgo star sign falls under the planet Mercury. It is a sign applying logic, organisation and a thoughtful method. The sign is represented by the image of the woman, devoted to those around her… yet a perfectionist nature and penchant for work can sometimes take over. Virgos flourish with wealth and financial security above all.
The sharp lines of an Asscher diamond display organised perfection. Splash out for the Virgo as wealth can be important to her!”
Libra – 23 September to 22 October
“Libras show tolerance and justice; they are sensitive and generous to those around them. A sign related to the air and also the planet Venus, the Libra can be often unpredictable. A lack of organisation can sometimes force her to act recklessly but charm and a seductive side always puts things right.
Charming and enticing, the added dazzle and unexpected Pear cut diamond of this sparkling ring is a winner for Libras.”
SCORPIO – 23 OCTOBER TO 21 NOVEMBER
“The Scorpio star sign hates displeasing others. Sometimes timid, the Scorpio is quietly determined and passionate. However, the individual can find some situations distressing and lack self confidence. Scorpios bear great importance to their family and friends, linked to the planet Mars and the star sign group water.
Gently passionate but certainly not a show off, the romantic heart cut is perfect for Scorpios.”
SAGITTARIUS – 22 NOVEMBER TO 21 DECEMBER
“The Sagittarius is lively, energetic and has true enthusiasm. Sagittarius’ are easily adaptable to different situations and people they meet. The sign is associated with the planet Jupiter and the element of fire. All in all, a very passionate and dedicated character!

CAPRICORN – 22 DECEMBER TO 19 JANUARY
“Capricorns are ambitious and always determined to succeed. They can sometimes be hard on themselves and work very hard. Related to Saturn and the earth, Capricorns are solid in nature and can sometimes forget their sentimental and whimsical side. Capricorns remain true to their relatives.
Strong over soppy, the emerald cut evokes power and determination. Teamed with a diamond encrusted band, this ring will be adored by Capricorns.”
AQUARIUS – 20 JANUARY TO 19 FEBRUARY
“Not one to do things by halves, Aquarius’ have a strong character. Their powerful personality make the sign a decisive magnet for management roles. Aquarius women are also curious, original and demonstrate a great love for their wider families. The star sign is connected to Saturn and air.
Subtlety is out of the question for the Aquarius, go big and beautiful with a Round cut diamond encased in a sparkling halo setting. Glorious!”
PISCES – 20 FEBRUARY TO 20 MARCH
“The Pisces is one of the most sensitive signs according to the zodiacs. It is a sign attached to Jupiter and water and features an adorable personality. They’re generally cheerful, smiley and loving of the people around them. Confrontation makes Pisces feel uncomfortable so they prefer to escape from difficult situations.
Choose the best-selling Round brilliant diamond for happy Pisces women; the chic, contemporary tension setting ensures the ring is the centre of attention.”
ARIES – 21 MARCH TO 19 APRIL
“The Aries star sign represents courage, fire and demonstrates an extremely dynamic character. Aries is linked to the planet Mars and the element of fire; they also show true decisiveness. With such a strong nature, they can sometimes display characteristics of confrontation and aggression.
The Aries star sign doesn’t fade into the crowd so an unusual Marquise diamond allows confidence and certainty to shine through.”
TAURUS – 20 APRIL TO 20 MAY
“Taurus signs have a persevering character, are decisive and passionate. The bull has an unparalleled vitality. Linked to the planet Venus and the element of Earth, the bull is led by its passion and determination. Professional success and love spurs the Taurus on. Occasionally, the bull is slightly nervous.
An Oval diamond has the fire of a Round but is a more unique aesthetic. Thus, it’s perfect for vibrant Taurus women.”
GEMINI – 21 MAY TO 20 JUNE
“Born in the late spring air, Geminis are positive about the joy of living. Geminis have flattering characters; the twins know how to please, seduce and have a desire to find things out.

Cancer carries a lot of attention and love for those close to them, be it family or friends. Linked to the Moon, this sign is very emotional (even if they keep this to themselves).
For the Cancer star sign, don’t go over the top. The iconic simplicity of a Round cut solitaire is ideal for their subtle natures.”
LEO – 23 JULY TO 23 AUGUST
“The Lion represents the fiery middle of summer! Leos are known to be dominant and can sometimes be intolerant. With a wild side, the Leo is bold and free. The star sign is connected to the element of fire and to the Sun. It is a star sign with a sacred character, however, the lion is very generous, extremely passionate and fiercely loyal.
