The reverse design by Pandora Young features an eye-catching combination of color and engraving that results in a beautifully artistic rendition of the zodiac. Like the stars and planets in the sky, a clear Swarovski® crystal embellishment is in alignment with the traditional glyph representing a crab's rounded shape and claws, which is the zodiac symbol for Cancer (June 21–July 22). At the center is a larger Swarovski® crystal embellishment; its vermilion color also represents those born under this sign known for tenacity, sympathy, imagination and persuasiveness.
The zodiac has a long, rich history that dates back to Hellenic and Babylonian civilizations, when astrology and astronomy were virtually inseparable. Today, its 12 signs entertain, intrigue or inspire millions of people worldwide, who find hope or guidance in the cyclical alignment of the stars and planets! The stars align in the 2017 Zodiac series, which features sparkling Swarovski® crystal embellishments within a colored rendition of the zodiac.
