DiamondsByMe and astrologer Inbaal Honigman have revealed exactly what type of engagement ring to suit your star sign, from an Aquarian's yellow diamond to a heart-shaped rock for Pisces…


"For a sporty Aries that's always on the go, a petite ring is a must, with a stone that's set low for practicality. Aries appreciate originality, and they'll love it if their ring is bespoke, crafted by an up-and-coming designer," Inbaal explained. It doesn't get more one-of-a-kind than a vintage half eternity band on two rows.

Taureans reportedly want a traditional ring inspired by previous generations. "As an Earth sign, they enjoy the finer things in life and prefer a high-end purchase with lots of glimmer," she continued. Tiffany is one of the most popular brands for engagement and wedding rings – and judging by this sparkler, we can see why.

Geminis are social butterflies, so Inbaal rightly said: "They need a ring that goes with all their party clothes. A straightforward design, classically ageless, and a super sparkly diamond to match their radiant personality." We're obsessed with this oval diamond framed by marquise diamond clusters.

Cancerians reportedly "do things 'by the book'" and that means a very traditional ring is in order. "If their mothers and grandmothers said 'yes' to a Solitaire that's valued at 2 months' wages, that is exactly what Cancer would like," Inbaal said.

With a regal lion as their symbol, Leos want an "unapologetically epic" ring that is "a story for the ages," according to the astrologer. "Generous, eye-catching, and with a stone that can be seen from space", she added, and this aquamarine rock does not disappoint!

Practical and functional Virgos "would like to see a ring which symbolises their ideal marriage - timeless, valuable, and classy." Go for a classic solitaire with a modern twist with a split shank.

Described as elegant and calm, a Libran will love "three, extra bright, dazzling diamonds in a unique setting." Enter these round brilliant cut diamonds in an 18ct white gold twist band.

Scorpios are known for being stylish and curious, which is why Inbaal suggests "gothic influences" with "darker colours or stark contrasts." We wouldn't say sapphires are gothic, but the deep blue colour alongside white diamonds and yellow gold is certainly eye-catching – just ask the Duchess of Cambridge.

As the "ultimate free-spirit", you'll need something pretty special for a Sagittarius. "Unusual colours, original combinations and one-of-a-kind bands will help seal the deal," Inbaal continued, and we've tracked down a gorgeous emerald three-stone ring to fit the bill.

"Steady and anchored, a Capricorn would appreciate a ring whose beauty lasts a lifetime. The greater the investment, the greater the value to a Capricorn, and engagement is not the time to cut corners. The ideal ring would be substantial and extravagant, with a sophisticated edge," she explained. We've got just the ring – a pear-shaped diamond on a sparkly pave band.

The astrologer revealed artistic Aquarians would like to design their own ring, and added: "A yellow diamond set in a quirky platinum ring will put a smile on their face when you propose, even decades later." It may not be a diamond, but we've found the next best thing with a yellow sapphire with your choice of metal, carat and more.

For Pisces, who are notoriously romantic, Inbaal suggested: "An ornate band with a heart-shaped diamond would be quite perfect, even more so if surrounded by tiny rubies." With or without rubies, there's nothing more romantic than a heart-shaped rock.
