About This Quiz

Are all November-borns the same? No, that can't be right! Traditionally, birthstones are assigned to us based on the month we were born in, but sometimes we think they get it wrong. Some of us feel more like emeralds than pearls, but we weren't born in May. So we've designed this quiz for those of you who want to know the truth. Which birthstone really does represent you?

Are you represented by an amethyst, a stone traditionally assigned to those born in the month of February? The stone's properties deal with humility, intelligence and inner strength.

Are you represented by Alexandrite, a fairly modern stone meant for June-borns, but represents those who are funny, polite, sensitive and have one of the strongest moral codes of everyone else.

Should yours be the diamond, one of the more expensive stones? They're usually meant for April-borns, but have properties that represent strength and liveliness.

Or are you represented by the emerald? Traditionally a stone for May-borns, emeralds are as rare as the personality traits found in those who have this birthstone: faithfulness, loyalty and a great work ethic.

If you have an itch that won't let up until you find out your REAL birthstone, take this quiz!
