The winter solstice brings in more than just a chance of snow - Capricorn season is here to see us into the new year (pause here for a collective sigh of relief) and we at Cold Gold HQ could not be more ready. Like their Earth Sign siblings, Capricorns are known to be grounded & stable, and we could all do with some of that energy as we round out this year. Since they’ll celebrate a birthday between December 22nd and January 20th, It’s time to snag the perfect gift for your Capricorn pal, and take a moment for the Capricorns we all know and love. Read on for more about Capricorns, why we love ‘em, and the perfect Cold Gold gift for your winter Earth sign pal.
Breaking into the inner-circle of a Capricorn is no easy task - Caps are notoriously guarded, and they value loyalty (which must be earned). On the surface, Capricorns are the subdued one of the group, both in personality and wardrobe choice. You’ll find a Cap power dressing in practical neutrals, black and white staples, and rich navy, and Earthy greens. Once you’ve earned their trust, however, Capricorns are sweet, soft, mom-friend types. Sensitive beings, they do NOT like to be made fun of - and aren’t very likely to be making fun of you, either. They won’t often volunteer to share feelings with the class, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t capable of big, complicated emotions (oh, they are). Capricorns, true to their Earth sign nature, tend to be practical, matter-of-fact, realistic, disciplined, and solid. In their own light, this sun sign is also greatly ambitious - Caps aren’t quitters and strive for success. Some of our favorite Capricorns include: Sissy Spacek, Timothee Chalamet, Blue Ivy Carter, Michelle Obama, John Legend, Zooey Deschanel, Kate Middleton, Kate Moss, and (most importantly) Queen of the entire existing Universe, Dolly Parton.
Oh, practical Earth Signs! Capricorns are no exception to that rule - pragmatic and realistic to a point previously thought impossible, down-to-Earth hardly covers it. Our first gift pick for Capricorns? Gotta be the long bar geo studs in black and white marble. Capricorns love a black and white moment - a grounded, neutral, well-balanced look is like music to their ears. Add the perfect touch of accessory without a fuss with these tiny black and white hand-marbled studs, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more practical (and simultaneously cool) daily-wear earring. Is it just us, or can’t you totally imagine Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, tossing on these tiny studs for tea?
What you may not know unless you’re lucky enough to call a Capricorn a close friend, is that oftentimes there’s a big kid at heart hidden inside the subdued, serious Capricorn. For the creative, child-like Capricorn looking to make a bit of a statement, we suggest the limited edition Forest Green leather Light Trace statement earrings. In gorgeous green and a whimsical shape, gifting these earrings will remind your favorite Capricorn to lighten up, embrace that inner-child, and play every now and then. Capricorns tend to take things very seriously and ignore their own need to take a break. With their hard-working nature, and resilient sense of self-control, they aren’t gonna distract themselves when there’s work to be done - they’ll need your help going after some fun.
If one thing is for certain, it’s that Capricorns aren’t here for the drama. Call your Fire Sign pals for that, the Capricorn is BUSY.They’ve got places to be, careers to conquer, paths to forge, lists to make, goals to set, and that’s just an average Tuesday afternoon. They’ve got absolutely no time to notice pettiness, much less participate in the gossip. For the Capricorn who means business and has a BS allergy so serious she carries an epi-pen, we recommend the Inferno Earrings in Butter Yellow. This buttery-neutral color pairs effortlessly with -any- look in the Capricorn’s closet and we would absolutely DIE if Dolly ever donned a pair of these bad boys. We’d even rhinestone them for her if she asked. While she may be the sparkliest Capricorn to ever exist, Dolly’s “let-’em-talk (while I succeed)” attitude is text-book Capricorn.
While they’re running themselves ragged and ignoring drama every step of the way, your Capricorn pal needs a keychain as sturdy and dependable as they are to keep up. The Cold Gold handmade leather keychain in navy blue is (like your Capricorn pal) beautiful, not showy, and classic, not boring - perfect for keeping your favorite Capricorn organized on their way to the top. They’ll get there, and they’ll remember you when they make it.
