Are you into Astrology? Aside from day-to-day predictions, I love learning about my sign and seeing how it compares with my life and how I live. It fascinates me and from what I’ve read, I really do think my sign matches with my personality, both the negatives and positives. Growing up, I would read my daily horoscope in the local newspaper regularly–it was that and the “Puppies For Sale” classifieds which I read, and nothing more. I thought it would be fun to put together my own “Jewel Horoscope” based on astrological sign characteristics using jewelry from the upcoming Antique & Modern Jewellery Sale from Fellows Auctions. The sale is set for Thursday, March 10th, 2016.
Aries, March 21-April 19
Lot 451: A double ram head bangle was an easy choice for Aries, as your sign is represented by a ram. Adventurous, courageous, and quick-witted…so many strong characteristics make up an Aries that this bangle would coordinate almost too well with your demeanor! Done in 18k yellow gold and set with rubies and diamonds.
Taurus, April 20-May 20
Lot 251: A classic, investment piece is right up your alley if you’re a Taurus and this lapis necklace is exactly that. Done in yellow gold with Italian origin, sleek and modern combine to form this beauty. Suspended from a belcher-style chain and measuring 18 inches in length.
Gemini, May 21-June 20
Lot 82: Nothing more “Gemini” than these earrings–first off, because there are two, a pair if you will, and secondly, they are mismatched. One earring features rock quartz, the other blue chalcedony–two very different colors and gems. These are done in 18k yellow gold and set with ruby and diamonds as well.
Cancer, June 21-July 22
Lot 67: A pair of yellow gold ear pendants, these have such a unique style to them. The are of the verge of being kitschy, while at the same time so classic/modern. These earrings reflect the strength and compassion of a Cancer sign.
Leo, July 23-August 22
Lot 533: A late 19th century micromosaic brooch depicting two birds together–possibly swans? A Leo’s ambition is mighty, leading me to believe a fellow Leo must be the artist behind this micromosaic, a painstakingly daunting task of placing each tiny piece of glass or pottery down to create a beautiful scene. If the birds are really swans, this can represent your passion and loyalty.
Virgo, August 23-September 22
Lot 84: Virgo’s perfectionist attitude would love this ring–as well as the beautiful diamonds in this Edwardian stunner. The diamonds total about one carat and are very clean, and yes Virgos are known to be clean-freaks. 18k gold with a platinum top, typical of the time period.
Libra, September 23-October 22
Lot 256: Known for being a great host, I can picture these gorgeous aquamarine and diamond earrings dangling from your Libra ears as you are gathering a party together! This pair is dynamic, with just the right amount of color vs. diamond sparkle. Elegance is also a characteristic of yours, and these match perfectly!
Scorpio, October 23-November 21
Lot 439: Big and bold, this all diamond ring set with a black gemstone in the center commands attention, just as you do Scorpio! Over two carats of sparkling color, different hues creating a powerful combination. This piece is done in 18k white gold. Love it!
Sagittarius, November 22-December 21
Lot 510: A late 19th century gold and garnet snake necklace represents our Sagittarius sign. Both rare in the antique world and covetable, same goes for your outlook on life! Always spiritual in nature, this snake necklace will remind you of how good vs. evil first began. Such a symbolic piece for a philosophical person.
Capricorn, December 22-January 19
Lot 318: As a Capricorn, you prefer luxury, so what could be more luxurious than a Bvlgari serpenti ring. This particular ring is done in 18k rose gold. All the viable markings and hallmarks are there–this piece is just waiting to be worn in the chicest way possible!
Aquarius, January 20-February 18
Lot 340: As a trendsetter, you go for it–this exquisite Cartier brooch set with aquamarines will do it for you! Aquarius is a water sign, so that also lines up with the gemstone colors and look of the brooch. This piece would look stunning clipped to an elegant black top or attached to a velvet choker. As an Aquarius, you’ll have fun with all the possibilities!
Pisces, February 19-March 20
Lot 2: Figa charms for a strong, water sign (yes, one even has a fish dangling) perfect for the Pisces. This piece is sentimental in nature and can represent many things, which lines up with how empathetic and caring Pisces are. Looks like there are five charms that dangle from the main figa–such a cool piece!
