What Birthstone Matches Your Personality?


Like sapphire represents September and emerald represents May, there's a birthstone out that best sums up your personality. Birthstones do more than represent a month, though. In fact, each birthstone has a specific quality that can be tied to your individual traits. While some birthstones symbolize loyalty and hope, others are known to embody traits like faithfulness and devotion. The birthstone you were born with is incredible, but is it the birthstone that truly matches you? As you answer these quiz questions, we'll aim to get to the heart of your personality. Once we figure out how you feel about certain things and how you react in everyday situations, it will be easy to compare your traits to the known traits of each birthstone. Then, we'll hone in on your responses and match you with the birthstone that you should always wear. Are you ready to find out which one it is?


Quiz WriterJoselyn

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

There are more than one set of birthstones

When you hear the word birthstone, you probably think of the precious gems that represent each month. However, you might not realize that you're associating birthstones with a modern interpretation. Long before pricy gems were touted as definitive birthstones, there was another set of them. Called the traditional birthstones, they vary from month to month. On the conventional scale, certain months, such as September and May, are still represented by the gemstones found on the modern table. However, many of the other traditional birthstones are different. For instance, March is traditionally characterized by bloodstone and not the aquamarine we commonly think it is. Long before October was associated with tourmaline, its birthstone was opal. And that's not where the story of birthstones ends! Alongside modern and traditional birthstone charts, healing crystals are also associated with different months and offer additional benefits to the wearer. Whether you choose a healing crystal, a precious gemstone, or something more traditional, you're sure to take delight in learning about each one.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
