I was born in September, so my birthstone is a sapphire. My favorite color is blue (it comes in other colors, but blue is the most common), so it worked out well. I wouldn't have minded it being a diamond, though. My sister's is, lucky girl.

Wearing your birthstone as an adult just doesn't seem to be as popular as it was when we were kids. Usually, the first "real" ring a little girl gets is one with her birthstone in it, or when you get your ears pierced for the first time, a lot of people get studs of said stone.
