Marilyn Monroe may have said that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, but not every diamond is for you. Your zodiac sign can influence everything from your personality to the way you behave on a day-to-day basis. Most of us don’t think about our zodiac sign – unless you’re someone who is always reading their horoscope.
Choosing your perfect diamond can feel overwhelming. There are dozens of styles to choose from. You could have an ethical diamond, colored diamond, or something contemporary like a galaxy diamond. If you’re struggling to find your perfect diamond, why not let your zodiac sign decide?
We’re taking a look at the different zodiac signs one by one, spotlighting which diamond type is their perfect match.
The Aquarius person is a free-spirited soul that isn’t afraid to wear their diamond and show it off to the world. You value the investment of your diamond, but you want to give it memories by wearing it. If you want a romantic silhouette, a rose-cut rustic diamond should be top of your list.
Meet the dreamers. You embrace the idea of ‘le vie en rose’ and want a whimsical and quirky piece. Your favorite diamond styles are feminine options that reflect your personality and are far from minimalistic. You’re not afraid to set your site high on a colored diamond like a white or champagne option, along with a rustic grey diamond with a classic cut like a cushion.
If your zodiac sign is Aries, you’re a go-getter who isn’t afraid to break away from the crowd and follow your own dreams. You’re realistic and want a functional piece of jewelry that still makes a strong impact when you wear it. Like most things in your life, you want your diamond to be classic but with a twist. Fancy colored diamonds – like an icy galaxy diamond – in a classic silhouette with a round or oval cut will be your top choices.
People who are born under Taurus are known as thinkers – self-assured and confident people who know exactly what they want. If this is your sign, you don’t follow trends and instead choose to wear what you want, when you want.
There’s no such thing as casual occasions, and diamonds are always in the dress code. Check out a rustic diamond with an earthy undertone for an unusual and eye-catching design that is sure to turn heads.
As a Gemini, you’re a thrill-seeker who looks for adventure around every corner. You’re not afraid to chase your dreams – including getting the diamond you want. If you’re a Gemini, look for unexpected diamond cuts like a shield or a kite. You can balance the more unusual shape against the look of a perfect diamond, opt for a traceable conflict-free or lab grown diamond if you want a more ethical and sustainable option.
Baby, you’re so classic. As a Cancer, you’re drawn to jewelry that has a natural elegance. You always know how to dress for an occasion – without a hair out of place. When you’re a Cancer, you value making an investment into a piece of jewelry that you know will last you a lifetime.
A perfect diamond with an emerald cut in either an elongated rectangle or squared off are all options that you should consider. You could also give your diamond a contemporary twist by sticking to similar cuts but looking at fancy colored diamonds, like a yellow or pink diamond.
As a Leo, you’re not afraid to express your personality and wear your heart on your sleeves. Your friends consider you to be the life and soul of the party. You’re always ahead of the trends and not afraid to experiment with something new and unexpected. Everything you wear will always turn heads – and in the best way. Choose a fancy colored diamond in a hue that speaks to your personality, like a pink argyle diamond in a feminine pear cut.
A Virgo is a person who will show up to their jewelry buying appointment with a bundle of research at the ready. They’re methodical with choosing the right diamond for them. Virgos know exactly what they want and aren’t afraid to keep looking until they find their perfect match. As a perfectionist, a Virgo will want to choose a diamond that they know they want in their collection and that will retain its value forever.
Minimalism is the classic choice for a Virgo. Blend your perfectionism and minimalism together to choose a perfect diamond with a signature shape, like a marquise cut, or try a twist on a classic with a grey colored hue.
When you’re a Libra, you know exactly what style works for you. You’re not afraid to keep your mind and are always at least two steps ahead of the fashion trends. You want a diamond that will grab attention and have you noticed, such as a Lozenge Cut diamond. This balanced cut exemplifies Libra's ability to approach life with stability and equilibrium.
As a Scorpio, you live for attention. You’re the life and soul of the party, always bringing it to the next level. Scorpios are no strange to a night out or calling attention to themselves. If you want to upgrade your setting, look out for certified lab-grown diamonds that give you more control over the cut and appearance – along with the price. Make a statement with a cut like an octagon or hexagon in step cuts or full cuts. These options are anything but ‘traditional’ and are perfect for your statement-loving personality.
Sagittarius is the one star sign that is always opened to changes that are happening. You want your jewelry to always serve a purpose and offer you something more than just its appearance. As someone who is always looking for ways to improve, a traceable artisanally mined shield cut diamond is the way to go.
You’re someone who enjoys the finer things in life = and you’re not afraid to show it off. While you enjoy making a splurge purchase, you don’t do it without doing your research first. You want an investment piece that shows off your personality with a radiant cut that screams modern elegance.
