It's far from easy to find the engagement ring that you'll say "I do" to and wear forever.
So why not let us help? If you're finding it hard to narrow down which ring to rock for your engagement, let the stars be your guide.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
A bit pushy and persuasive, you're almost guaranteed to get the ring you want...or else. As a lover of the classics, you'll be drawn to a brilliant round stone with a pave band, set just a bit higher than usual to ensure it really pops.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Quality over quantity is the name of your game. Instead of opting for a larger, low quality stone, you're inclined to do your research and find the best quality, cut, and color you can. Your frugality may get in the way of spending the big bucks so why not go vintage? Is there an heirloom you can repurpose? If so, the combined quality and sentiment is right up your alley.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Your vibrant personality is best reflected in your lucky stones: emerald and topaz. Thankfully, they both make beautiful center stones for an engagement ring that oozes Old World charm. An emerald cut, emerald stone (your ruling twins would be proud) with a pave halo just might speak to your charming yet old soul.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
Fun and funky is often the name of your game. While you may want to tone it down just a bit when it comes to something that's timeless, embrace your affinity for the unusual and sport a colored stone. It could be your birthstone, your partner's, or simply your favorite color. When incorporating color, though, stick with classic and complementary metals and keep the setting simple.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Fiery and passionate; "go big or go home" is your motto. So while you don't have to secure a 4-carat bling machine, playing with an oblong cut or geometric setting will help you to achieve the eye-catching size you're after.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
As practical beings with an affinity for the simple and classic, a timeless ring is something Virgos will cherish forever. Instead of opting for the trendy setting of the moment, a cushion cut diamond (with or without a halo) set in 14K gold is the perfect ring for you.
Libra (September 23–October 22)
You're romantic and a real lover of love, so why not break with tradition and wear your heart on your, well, finger. A heart shaped diamond with a fine halo on a white gold band is equal parts classic and fun.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
Scorpios are intense and very detail oriented so chances are you'll have a say (or direct orders) as to what engagement ring you'll wear. Embrace your intensity with an emerald cut center stone, and baguette side stones for sharp and straight lines that are perfectly bold and perfectly you.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Fun-loving and often carefree, there's a whimsical aspect to Sags that should be reflected in their rings. Opt for a classic, fairytale-inspired ring with an oval stone and intricate, swirly setting to best reflect your personality.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
You're a fan of the classics, Capricorn. While you're also prone to overthink, keep this one simple. A classic, round solitaire sparkler in a simple gold or platinum setting is something you'll be sure to love for life—and won't grow tired of, as you're known to do.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Known for being open-minded and thinking outside the box, get a little creative with your ring. Following the herd isn't your style, so go for something truly unique, without being too trendy. You're sure to love a setting with scattered accent stones, a wide and intricate shape, or other art-deco details.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Embrace your sign's water attributes and weave aspects of the sea into your treasure. Sapphires scattered throughout the band or a bright and brilliant round cut that glistens like the ocean will speak to your heart as well as your love.
