The Duchess of Cambridge, who is a Capricorn, wears an engagement ring featuring a 12-carat oval blue sapphire surrounded by 14 solitaire diamonds. Meghan Markle, born under star sign Leo, was given a three diamonds engagement ring in 2017 when Prince Harry proposed.
Experts at DC Jewellery have matched each star sign in the zodiac to their perfect and most suitable engagement ring, based on each month’s ideal colours, cuts and what each diamond represents, and both the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle have been wearing the wrong gemstone according to the astrologists.
Aries: The diamond – March 21–April 19
Experts at DC Jewellery explained: “April’s birthstone is the diamond, but it is also the birthstone for Aries. Aries can opt for any colour diamond they wish, whether it be clear, yellow or a rarer colour such as pink.
“With Aries being the fiery and ambitious sign of the zodiac, Aries should opt for a Princess cut diamond ring to stand out from the crowd.”
Taurus: The emerald – April 20–May 20
The experts said: “Emeralds are bluish-green to pure green, with vivid colour saturation and a tone that is not too dark, making it the perfect colour choice for this earth sign.
“Taurus should opt for an emerald solitaire cut ring to match their strong desire for extravagance and the finer things in life.”

Gemini: The pearl – Gemini – May 21–June 21
“To match the birthstone of this air sign, Gemini should opt for a fine pearl and diamond ring for an elegant, luxurious style to match their charming personalities,” they explained.
Cancer: The ruby – June 22–July 22
From DC Jewellery they said: “Cancerians, who famously wear their hearts on their sleeves, should choose a gorgeous ruby diamond ring to match their sensitive personalities. Opt for a stunning yellow gold band for an extra dash of elegance.”
Leo: The peridot – July 23–August 22
“The Old Egyptians called it the ‘stone of the sun’: the peridot. This was because the yellow-green to dark green light reflected beautifully within this stone.
“Leos should match their creative and energetic personality with a beautiful peridot diamond ring with a pear cut centrepiece,” DC Jewellery explained.
Therefore, the peridot is the most suitable gemstone for Meghan Markle, who was born under the star sign.
Capricorn: The garnet – December 22–January 19
From DC Jewellery they said: “The garnet, or also known as grenade, is a semi-precious gemstone.
“Garnets come in many different colours, but an ambitious, headstrong Capricorn should opt for a beautiful red garnet oval diamond ring, with a stunning diamond floral halo.”
In terms of gemstones and engagement rings, the garnet is, therefore, the best match for the Duchess of Cambridge, who is a Capricorn.
Aquarius: The amethyst – Aquarius January 20–February 18
“For a dramatic yet enchanting look, Aquarius should channel their optimistic personalities in an amethyst white diamond ring, with a glorious pear shaped centrepiece cut,” they said.
Pisces: The aquamarine – February 19–March 20
Finally, aquamarine is the most suitable gemstone for a Pisces.
The jewellery experts explained: “A compassionate and gentle Pisces has the perfect coloured birthstone to match their water sign traits: the serene aquamarine. Pisces should opt for a gorgeous aquamarine coloured stone with a dazzling diamond halo in a cushion cut shape.”
