As part of our ongoing spotlight on each Zodiac Sign it’s time to take a look at Leo, also known as “The Lion,” just in time for their birthday period! Born between the dates of July 23rd – August 22nd, Leos are believed to be warm, gregarious, and generous individuals who embrace their own style above all others! As with the other eleven Zodiac Signs, Leo has gemstones associated with their rulership – these gems, metals, and minerals are believed to be especially lucky when worn by members of this passionate fire sign. Whether you’re shopping for yourself, or for a Leo loved one, we hope that these suggestions help you find the perfect jewelry piece!
Leo is said to rule the heart and chest, and the precious metal of gold. Their other gemstones and associations include petrified/molded wood and sunny, summery minerals like citrine and amber. Fortunately, West Coast Cowgirl’s collection of gold jewelry is versatile and vast, and we have many pieces worthy of royalty! (Leos are often referred to as the royalty of the Zodiac!)
One of the most traditional associations for “The Lions” and their rulership is Onyx. Our Sonador Dreamer Necklace in Onyx is a regal, eye-catching statement piece! This exquisite piece has silver-plated medallions paired with large, round onyx discs and simulated natural stones. The majesty of this piece certainly blends well with the regal, refined demeanor of many Leos, and is sure to be a big hit!
Our New Friends Layered Necklace in Gold is a charming, elegant and interesting blend of the layering trend that’s so popular in 2017 with the gold associations of “The Lions” rulership. With tiny round discs that resemble little suns – Leo’s traditional ruler is the Sun, too – and delicate feathers and beadwork, this gorgeous necklace is summery and understated but sure to go with every wardrobe.
If earrings are more your style our Tanya Earrings capitalize on the Geometic trend for Summer 2017 while incorporating the Wood rulership of “The Lions.” Embellished with sunny metal accents, these beautiful earrings are modern and sophisticated while subtly combining numerous hot looks. Made with Zinc Alloy and 7.8cm long, our Tanya Earrings are a versatile addition to a summer jewelry collection that can blend splendidly with any wardrobe.
West Coast Cowgirl’s collection has numerous bracelets that are gorgeous gifts – to you, or to someone else! But our Kestral Bracelet is a particularly ideal choice when shopping for a Leo because of its vast color availability! Each piece combines the Gold associations tied to “The Lions” with an accent leather strip and rhinestone embellishments; this stunning jewelry piece is available in Lavender, Tan, Black, Pink, Sea Foam Green, and Purple! At 19cm in length, the Kestral Bracelet also captures the layered look in a charming, original way.
“The Lions” are one of the most social, endearing, charming members of the Zodiac according to Astrology, and we hope that our collection inspires you to find something ideal for the Leo on your shopping list! Ruled by the Sun, Leos rein over the summer like the regal lions they are, while being chic, sophisticated, and fun!
With spring in full swing and summer rapidly approaching that means we’re all entering another exciting time of year: Graduation Days! From April until late June, intrepid students across the country ---- whether graduating from high school, college, or another form of education – will gain recognition for their accomplishments via a graduation day ceremony. Whether you’re shopping friend or family member who is on the cusp of an exciting graduation, West Coast Cowgirl has you covered!
Shopping for jewelry can be a daunting task for anyone, even shoppers that are confident they know their recipient’s style. This “Graduation Season,” please consider these charming, elegant jewelry suggestions that are chic enough to shine in any jewelry collection, without being too bold or trendy to be gift-friendly choices!
Our luminous Tyra Earrings are a stunning, dangle style jewelry choice that is trendy and modern without being too personalized for a gift. The matte gold hooks compliment any outfit, and their stunning, opaque shell material is a versatile design that works great with any wardrobe. These lovely earrings conjure up images of summer at the beach, making them an excellent choice for a graduation day party before the hot months arrive!
West Coast Cowgirl’s collection of understated, chic jewelry choices is rarely represented more perfectly than by our Rocky Mountain Beauty Ring. This resizable ring doesn’t even require a specific size, and the choice of copper, gold, or silver plated styles lend beautifully to a wide range of tastes. This ring evokes images of the beautiful Rocky Mountains with its delicate mountain motif, and also works wonderfully in multiples or alone.
A wish for good fortune and luck is a fun theme for a gift, and it’s a sentiment that’s very appropriate for a new graduate as they prepare to embark upon a new life chapter. Why not bestow such a favor upon the special scholar in your life? Our stunning, sterling silver Lucky’s Chance Bracelet has a crystal horseshoe for an increase of luck! The adjustable 15.5cm-19cm size has a spring ring clasp, and its subtle Western style makes it a versatile choice as a present. Be sure to wear the horse shoe with the opening facing up towards the shoulder, for even more good fortune “running” your way!
If necklaces are more your loved one’s style, West Coast Cowgirl’s gorgeous Stardust’s Shine Necklace could be just the thing to put a smile on their face. With delicate, tiny stars clustered together like a constellation, plus one lone star boldly adventuring on its own, this necklace is a subtle, elegant look. The side star has double-sided cubic zirconia -- a feature that guarantees this bold little star will always catch the light and shine bright!
