Air sign Libra (September 23 - October 22) is the seventh sign of the zodiac and the aesthete of the bunch. Like Taurus, Libra is ruled by Venus, and they take the "beauty" part of that planet's governance very seriously. Being that the sign is represented by the scales, Libras seek balance and harmony in all things, most prominently within the realm of the senses - so much so that they can get the reputation for being a little superficial.
Libras tend to gravitate toward high art and finery, and their spaces will usually reflect their sophisticated aesthetic sensibilities. However, the scales also indicate that Libras care a great deal about justice and equality. Fairness is very important to them, and they will always try to see all perspectives of a conflict rather than take sides.
When choosing a gift for a Libra, seek out elegance over utility, but be sure to put some thought into the wrapping, too.
Romantic relationships are of chief concern for people born under the sign of Libra because being coupled brings them a great feeling of equilibrium.

A feast for the eyes and palette that may also attract a mate? That's Libra heaven.

Made of their signature stoneware that is scratch and chip resistant, they're pretty enough to proudly display on the counter year-round.
