A Virgo necklace is special for those born between August 23rd and September 22nd. Virgo is the 150th to the 180th degree of the zodiac sign.
The zodiac sign Virgo represents the Maiden, and is ruled by Mercury. Persons born under this sign are noted for their intelligence, attention to detail, work ethic, shyness in public and self-criticism. They tend to be perfectionists at whatever they do - which may include education, work or relationships. Virgos are also known to be hard workers, usually moving up the career ladder.
They are sensible, reserved and logical people who are always looking for ways to improve their everyday life. They are very particular about their personal appearance, which means they tend to make good fashion designers. They also have a keen eye for business and may go into professions such as accounting, finance or insurance.
As a Virgo necklace is a great gift for those born under the zodiac sign, it will often have a representation of Mercury attached to it. This can be either in the form of a small figure or symbol such as wings or a stylized image of the planet Mercury itself. In ancient times, this planet was often associated with the Greek mythological god Hermes, who wore winged sandals and carried a winged staff. Hermes also corresponded to the Roman god Mercury. Other common symbols of Virgo include scales and wheat.
