5 Pieces Showcasing the Rise of Zodiac-Inspired Jewelry – JCK


Zodiac-inspired jewelry isn’t new. In fact, fine jewelers such as Van Cleef & Arpels have offered these celestial gems since the ’50s. But lately, we’ve been seeing a lot more of them. Celebrities including Rihanna, Hailey Bieber, and Meghan Markle (remember the Logan Hollowell Taurus and Gemini Constellation necklaces she wore on her 40th birthday broadcast in honor of her children?), among many others, have been spotted sporting the stellar trend more and more frequently over the last year or so.

And at a time when people are looking for signs of optimism in anything, why not? Thankfully, there’s no shortage of whimsical, zodiac-themed pieces of jewelry. Keep reading for just a few. (Leos, we already know you’re “adding to cart.”)

Alighieri zodiac pendant
Cancer necklace in 24k gold–plated bronze, approximately $238; Alighieri

Alighieri prides itself on handcrafting heirlooms meant to last a lifetime and beyond. This zodiac, therefore, was not only created to have meaning but also longevity. And thanks to its handcrafted nature (in London’s Hatton Garden), no two pieces are exactly alike.

Cece Jewelry zodiac ring
Scorpio ring in 18k yellow gold and enamel with a diamond, approximately $3,497; Cece Jewellery

Cece Jewellery’s ring takes all of the elements of whichever sign (in this case, Scorpio) and combines them to create one hand-engraved and hand-painted vignette. The result is a full story at just a pinky glance.

Tiffany & Co zodiac pendant
Elsa Peretti Aries Zodiac pendant in sterling silver, $400; Tiffany & Co.

A more abstract zodiac interpretation than some of the other pieces out there, Tiffany & Co.’s celestial pendant takes the form of the sign without spelling it out. And, of course, each piece is made from sterling silver, which the jeweler is known for.

Marlo Laz zodiac band
Sagittarius Zodiac Enamel Wave Band V in 14k gold and enamel with diamonds, $2,400; Marlo Laz

Less about the symbolism, Marlo Laz’s zodiac band is a playful option that is meant to be stacked and personalized with other wave styles. It can also be made by special order with custom enamel colors and stones.

Van Cleef zodiac pendant
Leo Zodiaque necklace (also shown at top) in rose gold and red jasper, $21,100; Van Cleef & Arpels

Van Cleef & Arpels recently released a new collection of pieces, reinterpreted from its original Poetic Astronomy line, that fall right in line.
