I don't care if people think zodiac signs are fake―I love being a Leo. I love the symbolism behind it, I identify with the personal traits, and I especially love the recent zodiac necklace trend sweeping the internet. People everywhere are embracing their star signs in silver and gold, with so many jewelry brands jumping on the bandwagon that we've found ourselves moving far beyond the run-of-the-mill symbols and constellations that once defined this trend. Now, there are dozens of original designs to choose from, so that if, like me, you love showing off your sign, you can do so in a myriad of ways.
Below, check out some of the best, most original zodiac necklaces out there from luxury and affordable jewelry brands alike, whether you love your zodiac symbol or you're fond of the dazzling constellation it corresponds with. Each piece is perfect for starting astrology-centered conversations, or simply for hinting to everyone that your birthday's coming up.

Best Zodiac Symbol Necklaces
What's great about this zodiac charm from Pandora (don't worry, they have charms for every zodiac sign!) is that it can be worn on a number of the brand's necklaces, bracelets, and bangles, so you can wear your charm any way you'd like.
Child of Wild has won my heart yet again with its zodiac necklaces, which are made to look like ancient coins.
AAPI-owned brand TAI Jewelry stuns with this triple-charm necklace, accompanied by a very on-trend link chain that is bound to get you noticed.
This detailed necklace from Mercii comes in both yellow gold and silver. And you can even top off the look with matching earrings.
This reversible necklace features each sign's minimalist symbol on one side and an illustration on the other. Personally, I love my Leo pendant: it matches with everything, and it's perfect for layering with other, thicker gold chains.
This stunner by Gorjana is so luminescent it seems like it'd glow in the dark. Opt for this show stopper when you're wearing a little black dress, and you'll turns heads without a doubt.
I love Allurez's pieces, and am especially fond of this line of 14 karat gold pendants, each of which features a unique textured pattern behind the zodiac symbol. Not a fan of yellow gold? No problem: The necklace also comes in white and rose gold finishes.
Best Zodiac Constellation Necklaces
Moonglow offers a variety of original, comparatively colorful zodiac pendants, but I'm partial to this locket, which features both an illustration of the zodiac sign's constellation and the moon.
This ethically sourced diamond necklace comes in a dozen different—but equally exquisite—iterations for your specific sign. It makes a great gift for your astrology-obsessed friend.
This minimalist option boasts a unique design and an adjustable chain, and its tiny white sapphires are positioned to show off your sign's unique constellation. And if you're not into this O-shape, check out the brand's other Zodiac option, which comes in a simple circle.
If you love crystals as much as you love astrology, you're in luck: This unique piece is made from Lapis Lazuli, set behind a sparkling stars that light up the stone like stars light up the sky. You can also take solace in the fact that the brand, Latelita, is a sustainable jewelry brand that hand-makes its pieces and exclusively uses ethically sourced materials.
