This Gold zodiac pendant is rich in charm and style. The perfect gift for a person born under any sign, this pendant is a gorgeous piece of contemporary jewellery.

I love the bright yellow tone of the 9ct Gold! Featuring engravings of each constellation as they appear in the night sky on one side, and the name of the sign on the other in a classical cursive script this gorgeous piece is unique in every way, and the most perfect layering piece.

The pendant is 18mm in diameter and is lightweight at 1.45g. The 9ct Gold is bright and luminous, and the pendant itself feels smooth and tactile. I offer a 50% discount on a  bright 9ct Gold contemporary chain that matches the charm perfectly when bought together, meaning that it can be worn straight away! I would recommend this one.

It was during this Ancient Greek period that the twelve star signs of the zodiac with which many people are likely familiar today — Aries (roughly March 21-April 19), Taurus (April 20-May 20), Gemini (May 21-June 20), Cancer (June 21-July 22), Leo (July 23-Aug. 22), Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22), Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22), Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21), Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21), Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19), Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) and Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — were set down. These Western, or tropical, zodiac signs were named after constellations and matched with dates based on the apparent relationship between their placement in the sky and the sun.

The Babylonians had already divided the zodiac into 12 equal signs by 1500 BC — boasting similar constellation names to the ones familiar today, such as The Great Twins, The Lion, The Scales — and these were later incorporated into Greek divination. Even the word “zodiac” comes from the Greek, from a term for “sculpted animal figure,” according to the Oxford English Dictionary, and the order in which the signs are usually listed comes from that period too.

However, the Earth has moved on its axis since then, the process is known as precession, so now the dates that are used to mark the signs don’t really correspond to the background constellations that give them their signs names. That means zodiac sign dates, based on the mathematical division of the year, basically correspond today to the presence of the sun in the constellations of the signs that come before them.
