Best Engagement Rings for a Cancer

Best engagement rings for a cancer

Many people believe that their astrological chart influences the type of person that they are. This includes their personalities, how they dress, and even whom they should marry. If that’s you or your intended bride, then your choice of an engagement ring should be influenced by her star chart.

If the woman of your dreams was born between June 21st and July 22nd, these are the Cancer dates. charts, you’ll see this represented as a crab, and it’s considered a water sign. People whose sign is Cancer are often called Cancerians to distinguish them from the dreaded disease.

What does the Cancer sign have to do with engagement rings? In short, it allows you to pick something that she’ll love, but that’s also suitable to her as a Cancerian.

Let’s dive in.

Cancerian characteristics


Generally, astrologers think of a Cancerian as a loving, caring person. Women, in particular, love to cuddle up with their loved ones and enjoy family time. The Cancer personality is also sentimental, always remembering birthdays and important family milestones.

Does she like to cook and enjoy sharing the food with you? This is also a Cancerian trait.

On the other hand, when life isn’t going well, your Cancerian can be…well…crabby. Maybe she’ll get grumpy with you or retreat into her secret hideaway. Never mind, she’ll feel better soon if you give her some time alone.

Anyway, her care for you is what caught your heart, right?

We thought so.

Cancerian fashion sense


Of course, most people choose clothing that matches their personalities and interests. Cancerians are no exception to this rule, even though dress codes and the climate sometimes get in the way of that perfect outfit.

Experts say that Cancerians love feminine clothing, along with happy colors like white, pink, or lilac. In the winter, think of the darker pinks and purples instead.

They enjoy feminine fabrics, such as lace, taffeta, or silk. Boho tunics and frilly sundresses also come to mind. And when the weather gets cold, pashmina shawls and padded headbands make an appearance. Maybe even some multi-layer outfits that might include some sparkle and shine.

She doesn’t just act like your sweet lady, she looks like it.

Unique engagement rings for Cancerians


Naturally, you should choose an engagement ring that suits her style and her star chart as much as possible. After all, you’re marrying her for the person she is, and you want the ring to reflect that. Plus, she’ll hopefully wear this ring forever, so careful choices are always best.

Here are some great engagement rings for women that Cancerians would appreciate.

Simple, yet elegant and romantic. This ring features a ruby in the center of a pave diamond band. Then, there’s a love knot motif at the base of the ruby, also creating a hidden halo effect. Since your Cancerian is likely “Wrapped Up in You” and loving it, this ring is especially appropriate.

Who doesn’t like a motif that showcases your togetherness?

Besides this, Cancerians are especially passionate about the people they love. Rubies are the ultimate gem of passion, so it’s a natural fit.

You can go with any metal color, but if she likes pink then rose gold could be extra special.

There are many possibilities.

Quick Tips for the Perfect Ring Choice


Even when you find a ring or setting that suits your Cancerian perfectly, there are a few things to consider. For one thing, there’s the price. At With Clarity, we believe you shouldn’t spend more than you can afford, but you also want the best bang for your buck. If your budget is smaller (and she isn’t hung up on the romance of a mined diamond) then a lab-created stone may be the best choice. That’s because they cost less per carat than their mined equivalent.

Second, be sure your Cancerian isn’t turned off to your ring because of metal allergies. If she has sensitive skin, we recommend choosing a metal that’s less likely to cause a reaction. Platinum is usually the best, though rose and yellow gold are typically compatible.

Third, make sure the ring suits her style. You don’t want to give her a ring she won’t like because that might send her into a crabby mood. Instead, pick something that suits her perfectly. If that’s difficult for you, our expert gemologists can help select the perfect setting. Also, you can try our home trial program to be sure it’s perfect.

Lastly, never buy from a fly-by-night operation. You’ll spend a lot of money on a sentimental ring, so be sure there’s a customer-friendly return policy in case something goes wrong. Best of all, With Clarity offers a lifetime warranty and free ring sizing should the ring need some TLC.
