My birthday is in August and I absolutely love being a Virgo. The only time I wished I was born in a different month was when I was in the 5th grade and I went to go get my ears pieced at Claire's Accessories at Stonestown and was set on getting my birthstone. That's when I saw the nasty green peridot!!!! I couldn't wear that green for 6 weeks. Why couldn't I be born in July and get the rubies? Or March and get the aquamarine like Caitlin? I can't remember if they even had pearls as an option, but that is what I would get now since I don't go a day without wearing pearl earrings.

I ended up getting basic "diamonds" which is the birthstone for April. Lucky Jesse and Clementine! I have a new appreciation for peridot after finding these perfect 10 pairs!
