August Birthstone: The Peridot

Aug 10, 2021 | Birthstones

The often underestimated but never duplicated beautiful bright green peridot is a gem that was revered by the ancients, but in recent times has felt like poor old Rodney Dangerfield.

It can’t get no respect!

Well today we’re going to show some respect to “the gem of the sun”, the magical green peridot.

Born deep in the earth’s core, these gems come to the surface already shining! They naturally have the stunning green color you see above.

Symbolizing strength and balance, the peridot was worn by Egyptian and British royalty alike.

Having the bright green color of nature, the peridot also symbolizes peace, compassion, harmony, good health, and restful sleep.

In addition to that, it’s believed to balance your mind and emotions and help with depression!

Sounds like you can toss out your yoga mat and quit your meditation practice! The peridot has you covered.

If inner peace isn’t your thing, then just get one because they’re so darn pretty!

The bright green peridot looks amazing with warm and cool tones alike.

That means you won’t have to spend hours wondering what jewelry will match your outfit.

And whether you’re going to brunch or dinner you’ll look fabulous as peridots shine brilliantly under natural or artificial light. Just ask The Duchess of Cambridge!

That’s right! Princess Kate wears a set of peridot, blue topaz, and diamond earrings.

So, the next time you’re jewelry shopping, consider choosing a peridot. Not only will you be in the company of royalty, but you might just achieve lasting harmony and balance.
