According to the astrological calendar, the sign of Cancer rules from June 21 to July 22. Cancer is the Latin word for crab, which is why the zodiac sign is represented by a crab and why my Jewels of the Month are my crab emoji designs.
You might not be familiar with the crab emoji because it’s not available on your phone — only in Gmail. It’s ridiculously pixelated but, on the plus side, it runs back and forth on the screen, clicking its claws.
My gorgeous ex-employee Eryn is very fond of the crab. She often uses it in lieu of iPhone’s dancer emoji, who wears a red dress and holds one arm aloft. Sometimes Eryn uses the dancing crab in a celebratory way. Sometimes she uses it in a sarcastic way. Sometimes I think she uses it to say “WTF?!” because you can kind interpret the crab as shrugging. I initially made a tiny rose-gold crab ring just for Eryn.
Then I got a lot of requests for crabs from people who’d seen the ring on Eryn or on Instagram. So here’s my crab emoji single stud earring in silver …
… and my crab emoji ring, also in silver. Please note, this crab is slightly larger than Eryn’s. Measurements are on the website.
If you or someone you know is celebrating a Cancerian birthday this month, I’ve got several crabby earrings available for immediate delivery. There’s one ring available in size 6. (Obviously, I can do other sizes upon request, but you might not get it by July 22.) I’m also happy to do these designs in 18K gold; I recommend rose gold to mimic the red emoji.
