March 21st-April 19th
Engagement Ring Style: Bold & Trendy
As the first sign of the zodiac you love staying abreast of the latest trends. Oval shaped diamond rings have seen a new resurgence in popularity as well as Rose Gold as a metal choice for modern engagement ring settings.
Celebrities with Oval Engagement Rings: Blake Lively, Letoya Luckett
April 20th– May 20th
Engagement Ring Style: Classic & Sophisticated
Taurus is ruled by beauty planet Venus and many Taureans are attracted to items that are classic and hold their value. The Emerald diamond ring is classic, elegant and understated. Right up the bull’s alley.
Celebrities with Emerald Engagement Rings: Beyoncé, Sarah Jessica Parker, Amal Alamuddin
May 21st-June 20th
Engagement Ring Style: Versatile & Adaptable
It’s hard to get a Gemini to commit to the same hairstyle for a month, let alone a ring that is supposed to last a lifetime. This is why I recommend they choose a classic solitaire engagement ring style that is versatile and can be “jazzed” up with a unique wedding band.
Celebrities with Solitaire Engagement Rings: Lauren Conrad, Michelle Obama, Mila Kunis
June 21st– July 22nd
Engagement Ring Style: Elegant & Meaningful
Cancer rules the home and is ruled by the moon which represents the mother/feminine energy in astrology. Many Cancers have a deep-rooted connection to their family so a ring that incorporates family history or an heirloom in some way is perfect for this sign.
Celebrities with Family Heirloom Engagement Rings: Meghan Markle & Kate Middleton
July 23rd– August 22nd
Engagement Ring Style: Show Stopping & Regal
With The Sun as Leo’s ruler, this sign is not afraid to go big and bold. And one way to go big with your engagement ring design is with a double halo. The bigger the better? Leos may think so.
Celebrities with Double Halo Engagement Rings: Natalie Portman & Ashley Tisdale
August 23rd – September 22nd
Engagement Ring Style: Timeless & Sleek
With the Virgin as Virgo’s symbol, people born under this sign can be more conservative than others. Their meticulousness manifests as wanting structure in some area(s) (if not all) of their lives so a perfect princess cut engagement ring fits the bill.
Celebrities with Princess Cut Engagement Rings: Sherri Shepherd & Kendra Wilkinson
September 23rd – October 22nd
Engagement Ring Style: Old World Meets New World
Libras are the people who have their entire wedding planned by the time they’re 13 so the perfect engagement ring is a must for this sign. With Venus as their ruler, they love antiques so a modern ring with a vintage feel is the best of both worlds for this romance obsessed sign.
Celebrities with Pear Cut Engagement Rings: Victoria Beckham, Katherine Heigl, Cardi B. (She’s a Libra!)
October 23rd – November 21st
Engagement Ring Style: Bold and Unexpected
Scorpios have a bit of a rebel side to their personality so a ring that sets them apart from all the other soon-to-be brides is a great choice. The Marquise diamond was created by a jeweler for King Louis XV to resemble the lips of his mistress. So yeah, this shape is perfect for sultry Scorpio.
Celebrities with Marquise Diamond Engagement Rings: Ashlee Simpson, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Portia de Rossi
November 22nd – December 21st
Engagement Ring Style: Unique and Durable
Since Sagittarius is the sign of travel, people born under this sign are usually on the go. Which means that they don’t have time for jewelry that has a high risk of getting damaged. An engagement ring with a bezel set stone or diamond is a great way for people born under this sign to have both style and function.
Celebrities with Bezel Set Diamond Engagement Rings: Rachel Zoe, Scarlett Johansson
December 22nd – January 19th
Engagement Ring Style: Traditional & Elegant
It’s imperative that status seeking Capricorn has an engagement ring that helps them “look the part” of a total boss so there is no cutting corners when it comes to finding a classy ring for this sign. A sparkly cushion cut diamond with halo will stand out amongst the crowd.
Celebrities with Cushion Cut Diamond Engagement Rings: Kim Kardashian, Bar Refaeli, Sofia Vergara
January 20th – February 18th
Engagement Ring Style: Non-traditional and Eclectic
Aquarians are natural dissenters so I wouldn’t be surprised if many of them do not want an engagement ring, or to be married for that matter (Oprah is an Aquarius!). But for those who do want an engagement ring, a non-diamond stone may be the way to go. Morganite is becoming increasingly more popular and you can pair it with diamonds for an old meets new world style.
Celebrities with Morganite Engagement Rings: I couldn’t find any! And Aquarius will LOVE this.
February 19th – March 20th
Engagement Ring Style: Eccentric & Romantic
Pisces is ruled by dreamy planet Neptune so many Pisceans dream of finding their prince/princess charming. Pisces is one of the most romantic signs in the zodiac and although a heart-shaped diamond is one that not many can pull off…this artsy sign can.
Celebrities with Heart Shaped Engagement Rings: Lady Gaga
