If you’re the kind of woman who prides herself on knowing her water-bearers from her twins, favors the lucky flowers and colors associated with her sign, and is unashamedly geeky when it comes to reading horoscopes, then this jewelry trend is right up your street (or star constellation).

Whether you believe in it or not, there’s no denying the astronomical popularity of zodiacs and, in a world where personalization and curation is at our fingertips, it seems only right that this millennial way of thinking extends to our collection of accessories. Almost everyone you know owns a nameplate necklace or an initialed ring, but a more interesting way of adding a personal touch to your look is through birthstone gems.

While you may associate colored gems with a chunky mood ring or garish necklace from your childhood, today’s offering consists of super-delicate, trendy, and interestingly colored pieces that can only be described as future heirlooms, proving exactly why colored-stone engagement rings are growing increasingly popular.

Cult jewelry designers such as Brooke Gregson and Aurelie Bidermann are amongst the most popular names championing birthstones, using hammered gold and unusual shapes within their kitsch designs to create pieces that truly feel one-of-a-kind and special. Wearing your birthstone is no longer cliché and, instead, is a subtle, sophisticated way to rep yourself, or your loved ones, every single day.
