Your engagement ring preference and zodiac sign might seem like two completely unrelated topics, but the two have a surprising connection. MyDomaine’s resident astrologer, Rose Theodora, explains: “Astrology is not separate from you. It’s about who you are. It relates to everything from the colors you gravitate toward to the clothing you choose to wear.”
What could be more deeply personal that an engagement ring? “Engagement rings are so special because they reflect a person’s essence. It’s about choosing a ring that shows who they are, rather than trends that come and go.” If you’re tempted by the ring of the moment and aren’t sure if it’s a passing phase, we asked Theodora to pinpoint the engagement ring styles that are perfectly suited to each zodiac. Yes, according to astrologers there is one style that’s most suited to your personality. Get ready to meet your perfect engagement ring match.
“Emma Watson is a typical Aries—she’s classic and always stylish,” says Theodora. “Aries get bored very easily. They know that trends change so they prefer traditional rings.” Her top pick? A refined single-stone engagement ring with a simple band, which Aries will never tire of, regardless of trends.
“Taurus are feminine but so simple,” says Theodora. She names Audrey Hepburn as their kindred spirit and says they want a ring that reflects their steady and reliable nature. “An emerald-cut diamond is the perfect fit.”
Open to possibilities, Gemini are typically lighthearted. On the other hand, “they’re a little bit superficial,” says Theodora, suggesting a sparkling, multi-diamond ring. “They want the nicest of the nice.”
“Cancers are die-hard loyalists. They’re total romantics but in the most subdued way,” explains Theodora. She recommends a crescent-shaped ring or moonstone to reflect their ruling planet. “Cancers are ruled by the moon, so their mood ebbs and flows. Their ring should reflect their luminescent nature.”
“The worst thing you could tell them is that they remind you of someone,” says Theodora of Aquarius. Search for a unique ring that’s one of a kind and a bit androgynous. “They love black,” she adds, so a black diamond or ring with dark detailing is a perfect fit.
Capricorns are ruled by the Earth sign, so they’re practical but status-hungry. “Family is extremely important to them, so an heirloom piece is the perfect pick,” says Theodora. Given their practical nature, they’re inclined to gravitate toward rings with a simple band or cushion cut.
When it comes to selecting the perfect engagement ring, Leos are drawn to sparkle and size. “They’re a bit gaudy. It’s got to be big. They want people to see it!” she says. “They don’t believe in hiding love, and want a statement ring to reflect it.”
Gwyneth Paltrow is a typical Libra, says Theodora. “They’re classic, so their engagement ring has to be elegant and feminine. It’s a work of art for them.”
“[Pisces are] all over the place. They’re romantic but also selfless,” she says. “They’ll love whatever their lover wants to give them,” so a personal, custom-made piece is ideal.
The perfect engagement ring for Sagittarians is feminine and playful. “They love lots of diamonds—not to show off, but because it’s fun.” Opt for a detailed ring with lots of sparkle.
“Virgos are so practical. They’re going to be concerned with their ring touching on things,” Theodora explains. “Look for a ring that sits flat on their finger,” she recommends, so it doesn’t get in the way of day-to-day tasks.
Scorpios don’t want a popular engagement ring. “They’re naturally intense people and believe [a ring] should be unique and reflect their love.” The perfect match is a unique gemstone or fierce black diamond.
