A piece of jewellery from our zodiac collection would make the perfect gift for somebody special's birthday or create the perfect meaningful piece such as a custom family necklace with the star sign of each of your little stars.

What does the zodiac mean ? 
Over 2,000 years ago, astrologists came up with the zodiac system based on the earth's orbit around the sun.  Each star sign is derived from the Zodiac. The Zodiac is an area of the sky mapped out according to the movements of the sun, moon and other visible planets over the period of a year.  As the Sun and Earth move, they align within the 12 areas defined within the Zodiac. Each area represents a certain time of year, e.g. Aries (March 21st - April 19th).
According to Western astrology, the zodiac can give us a glimpse into the strengths and weaknesses of an individual, depending on what star sign their birth fall under.  Each Zodiac sign is also assigned to The Four Elements within Astrology; Earth, Fire, Water and Air. By examining the tendencies of each Star Sign/Element, it is believed to give us an insight into the compatibility with other signs. For example, a Water element and an Earth element will go well together as water allows Earth to flourish and bring new life. The same way Air elements will work well with Fire elements as Air will allow a Fire to ignite and grow.
