As a part of our monthly focus on jewelry for each Zodiac Sign, we wanted to continue from on our previous post about gifts for Taurus individuals. West Coast Cowgirl is excited to move on to the next sign of the Zodiac: Gemini! People born during May 21 – June 21 are considered to be “The Twins” in Astrology – an intelligent, open-minded, curious bunch of individuals who enjoy a variety of creative pursuits! With this section of the “Wheel” of Zodiac signs approaching rapidly, we wanted to take the opportunity to suggest some jewelry items for people born during the time of Gemini. Whether you are a Gemini yourself, or you’re shopping for one of “The Twins” in your life, we hope that these suggestions will be a fun, new alternative to more traditional choices!
Each sign of the Zodiac “rules” numerous things, from a part of the body – the arms, in the case of Gemini – to different metals, flowers, gemstones, and colors. These specific items and themes are supposed to be extra lucky for “The Twins” when they wear/use them, which make them a fun gift selection for those born during these weeks in May and June!
One of the gemstones that are associated with Gemini is agate, a beautiful, earthy choice that lends well to a variety of styles. Our Angelina Multi-Layer Necklace features natural stones in a multistrand necklace design, with authentic agate stone beads included. The multi-layer design is reminiscence of the duality Gemini are known for, and the 60cm/70cm/80cm lengths make this piece extremely versatile in terms of wardrobe compatibility.
Given that Gemini rules the arms and the hands, West Coast Cowgirl’s extensive collection of bracelet options is a natural choice for these wonderful, energetic people! Our gorgeous Sundance Crystal Bracelet is a particularly fun choice, given that the antique design features bejeweled circles that are interconnected – much like the symbol for Gemini, themselves! With a toggle clasp and four color choices, this stunning bracelet is a subtle nod to “The Twins” area of the body, with an understated Western motif great for gift-giving.
Pearls are a huge trend for Spring 2017, with numerous runway shows featuring a plethora of pearl-focused jewelry and accessories. Pearls are also a precious “gemstone” associated with Gemini (not to mention being the primary birthstone for June babies!), which makes our assortment of pearl options an incredible selection for June-born Gemini jewelry lovers especially!
For example, our Mollys Flower Pearl Necklace an ideal pearl choice for the Gemini jewelry lovers in our lives! “The Twins” are a sign of duality, and Astrology tells us that these individuals often straddle the line between numerous things – tastes, interests, beliefs, styles, and so on. The innate duality of this necklace when purchased in the Black Flower color option is reminiscent of the two-sided aspect that Gemini is so well known for! It’s an ideal piece for any wardrobe, and can be worn up or down for both a casual or dressy aesthetic. The 64cm length makes it extremely flexible in terms of layering as well!
Another wonderful choice in terms of gorgeous pearl pieces is the Cloud Dancer Necklace that has become a favorite here at West Coast Cowgirl. This simple, chic necklace features adorable pearl embellishments and a stylish lariat style chain. The leaf branch connector is an understated nod to spring and summer, and it can be adjusted in length by pulling the tear drop pearl setting to the desired length.
The Zodiac sign of Gemini is associated with the bright, memorable color Yellow, which is a fantastic choice for any spring jewelry purchase. Its cheerful, energetic vibe is a winning compliment to the fun-going, exciting nature of “The Twins,” and our Tobinana Bracelet in the Lemon color combines both the association of yellow hues with Gemini’s rulership of the arms and hands. The feather charm is whimsical and fun, and conjures Air associations as well – the traditional element for Gemini people! This adorable bracelet is available in eight colors including Lemon, so if a yellow hue doesn’t fit with your wardrobe you can always select a different shade and still be incorporating the bracelet trend into your Gemini recipient’s collection!
Gemini are a creative, inspirational people according to Astrology, so it’s no wonder that their tastes are very varied and eccentric. However, we hope that our guide to jewelry choices for “The Twins” will help you in either adding to your own jewelry collection, or to choose a gift for the Gemini on your shopping list!
Traditionally, each Zodiac Sign has different birthstones attributed to them by Astrologers. Many jewelry enthusiasts are aware that each month of the year has a common gemstone attributed to it – for example, May has an association of emerald, followed by pearls in June. But beyond that, each sign of the Zodiac has additional gemstones tied to them – various myths and legends insist that people born under those Zodiac Signs will benefit from wearing these stones, gems, and precious metals. With May just around the corner, the month that composes the bulk of Taurus’ time in the spotlight, West Coast Cowgirl would love to focus on pieces of jewelry that could allegedly bring good luck, renewed health, and inspiration to people born under the sign of Taurus (April 21st – May 21st).
Turquoise is one of the most popular choices for Taurus associations, and its earthy, rich appearance conjures up images worthy of this noble Earth Sign. Taurus people are known to be practical, sensual, and stylish folk, and West Coast Cowgirl’s stunning Cowboy Song Lariat Necklace could be the perfect fit. Taurus is also believed to “rule the neck and throat,” according to Astrology, and this chic piece certainly draws attention to the neckline. The small turquoise bead is a subtle nod to Taurus associations, and the choker style of the necklace itself ties in perfectly with other Spring 2017 jewelry trends.
In addition to turquoise, agate is another gemstone that is often attributed to people born under the sign of “The Bull.” Our Diego Necklace is an ideal combination of these two powerful stones, and the intricate agate and turquoise beads give this a stunning look. Paired with a large pendant that is a slice of natural agate, this necklace is also a great way to incorporate the reoccurring trend of statement jewelry into your wardrobe.
If you prefer agate gemstones, or you’re looking to capture a specific, Boho vibe, West Coast Cowgirl’s Hoshi Tassel Necklace combines natural agate beads and a fun, western-worthy light brown tassel. It has an earthy, quiet sophistication, but a unique charm that makes it a versatile addition to both Bohemian and more traditional collections. Its approximate 31.5” length is ideal for layering!
West Coast Cowgirl’s inventory isn’t limited to necklaces, of course! We also have a stunning cuff bracelet that fits that hot trend exactly, while also offering Taurus connections via our turquoise color choice. Our Quidam Bracelet is a tri-embellished cuff that is silver plated and has a glorious western charm and appeal. It’s a bold, trendy look, and one that is certain to carry you through the 2017 seasons and become a staple in your wardrobe!
If gemstones aren’t your style, but you’d still love to give a nod towards Taurus in your jewelry choices, our Allegre Earring could be the ideal solution. Copper is a metal associated with our industrious, strong Bull members of the Zodiac, and these hammered plated silver and copper alloy earrings have a subtle but eye-catching charm. The combination of metals gives these pieces a quiet industrial edge, but the drop style is a classic, timeless design.
Whether you are buying for yourself or looking for gift ideas, West Coast Cowgirl has you covered! May means three weeks of Taurus birthdates, and our large stock of turquoise, agate, and copper pieces provide plenty of options to choose from!
