Zodiac Jewellery Gift Guide for Gemini

Welcome to the ASSUWA Zodiac Jewellery Gift Guide for Gemini! At ASSUWA, we weave forgotten stories from the Mediterranean into wearable art. Each piece is a unique expression of history and nature, designed to resonate with the wearer's spirit.

In this guide, we delve into the captivating world of Gemini, exploring their fascinating and complex personalities, birthstones, and healing crystals, and showcasing our curated jewellery collection that perfectly complements the Gemini soul.

Unfolding the Forgotten Story of Gemini

Our journey begins with the forgotten story of the Gemini twins. Rooted in Greek mythology, Gemini is represented by the twins Castor and Pollux. This mythical duo represents the duality inherent in the Gemini nature – a harmonious blend of intellect and creativity, sociability and introspection.

According to the story, Castor and Pollux were the twin sons of Leda, Queen of Sparta. Although they were twins, they had different fathers -  Pollux was the son of Zeus and Castor was the son of Tyndareus. So not only did they have different fathers, Castor was mortal, whilst Pollux was immortal.

Despite their differing natures, they shared a deep bond and were known for their bravery and inseparability. Moved by their love and devotion to each other, Zeus placed them both in the sky as the constellation Gemini, symbolising their eternal bond.

Numerous artworks depict the story of Castor and Pollux. These masterpieces span various mediums and historical periods. Our personal favourite is Giovanni Battista Cipriani's interpretation, which includes symbols of Amphitrite and Poseidon, the sea goddess and god, visible in the background sculpture.

The Gemini Spirit

Geminis, born between May 21st and June 20th, are known for their infectious curiosity, lively spirits, and insatiable thirst for knowledge. Ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, they possess a quick wit and a talent for captivating any conversation.

Gifting the Gemini

When choosing a gift for a Gemini, consider their curiosity and creativity. Geminis are deeply moved by music, art and knowledge. Opt for unique and versatile pieces that spark their curiosity and reflect their diverse interests. Remember, anything that ignites their mind and fuels their energy will be cherished!
