Bored with your birthstone jewelry? Consider adding some fresh personality to your jewelry box with Zodiac birthstones! Did you know there are gemstones associated with each of the 12 astrological signs of the zodiac? These stones are believed to have special properties that can bring good luck, health, and prosperity to the wearer and enhance the qualities and traits of the sign.
The amount of data available on this topic is extremely vast so I'm going to break up this post into multiple blogs by areas of focus. It's important to note that these associations are not "set in stone" (see what I did there?) and different sources may have different lists of gemstones and colors for each zodiac sign. Ultimately, the gemstones and colors that resonate with you are the ones that will have the most meaningful and powerful effect on your life.
Let's start with zodiac signs and gemstones by color:
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), bold and vibrant colors like red, orange, and yellow can be a good choice. These colors are often associated with passion, energy, and determination, which are qualities that are often associated with fire signs. Gemstones like ruby, garnet, and sunstone can also be good options for fire signs, as they are believed to promote vitality and bring joy and happiness.
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) tend to be practical and grounded, and they may be drawn to colors like green, brown, and beige. These colors are often associated with stability, reliability, and simplicity, which can be beneficial for earth signs who value security and stability. Gemstones like emerald, peridot, and sapphire can also be good choices for earth signs, as they are said to promote abundance, balance, and inner peace.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) are known for their sociability and intellectual curiosity, and they may be drawn to colors like blue, purple, and turquoise. These colors are often associated with tranquility, creativity, and self-expression, which can be helpful for air signs who are always on the lookout for new ideas and experiences. Gemstones like turquoise, aquamarine, and topaz can also be good choices for air signs, as they are believed to bring clarity of mind, inspiration, and wisdom.
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are known for their deep feelings and emotional sensitivity, and they may be drawn to colors like pink, purple, and blue. These colors are often associated with love, compassion, and emotional healing, which can be beneficial for water signs who are in touch with their feelings. Gemstones like moonstone, pearl, and opal can also be good choices for water signs, as they are believed to promote intuition, purity, and creativity.
