About This Quiz

Throughout the ages, gemstones have inspired artistry, passion and greed. From the ancient Egyptians who mined emeralds in 1500 BCE to the French royals who sold their jewels in an effort to evade the guillotine, the prized status of gemstones has made them a pivotal part of the history of many cultures.

Due to their extraordinary size, clarity or shape, certain gemstones have become world-famous. Such jewels have been stolen, flaunted and fought over by kings, queens, soldiers, heiresses and captains of industry. Forget "Titanic's" Heart of the Ocean — real-life gemstones possess far more fascinating back-stories.

Like a legendary jewel, your soul carries unique and irreplaceable qualities. Whether you consider yourself to be a special person or not, no one else has your specific combination of courage, resilience and compassion. In this quiz, we're going to ask you questions about your personality, appearance and personal taste to determine which famous gemstone is a match for your one-of-a-kind spirit. At the end of the quiz, we'll reveal which jewel epitomizes your soul and share some of its thrilling history with you. Are you ready to find out which incredible gem matches your essence?
