Unlike monogrammed accessories, zodiac fashion is, when done well, can look like a piece of art and still feel incredibly personal. And that’s just what Givenchy’s artistic director Clare Waight Keller achieved with the launch of the luxury brand’s Fall 2018 zodiac jewelry collection.
Exquisitely carved and finished in gold, the 24-piece collection of rings and earrings features a luxe take on each star sign, uniting Waight Keller’s love of jewels and talismans. In fact, the first one she created was her own sign—Leo—and the success of which prompted her to design the remaining 11.
And the neat thing about the earrings is that they were designed to double as pendants. Each pair comes with a black satin ribbon (the option of a gold chain is available; it’s sold separately) from which you can thread through the earring’s hoop.
As for the rings, each one is encrusted with a gemstone that was hand-selected to symbolize the sign’s characteristics, which is based on the theory that the location of the sun at birth determines certain attributes. In other words, a color and a corresponding stone were assigned to every sign. Scroll through to see them all:
Capricorn (22 December – 19 January) light pink—Pink Quartz
Aquarius (20 January – 19 February) navy blue—Dumortierite
Pisces (20 February – 20 March) turquoise—Russian Amazonite
Aries (21 March – 19 April): purple red—Rhodolite
Taurus (20 April – 20 May): green—Green Agate
Gemini (21 May – 20 June): gray/lavender—Chalcedony
Cancer (21 June – 22 July) white—White Baroque Pearl
Leo (23 July – 23 August): gold—Citrine
Virgo (24 August – 22 September) brown—Tiger’s Eye
Scorpio (23 October – 21 November) black—Onyx
