Featuring an invigorating bright green color, August birthstone jewelry makes it easy to give meaningful, beautiful gifts to loved ones with late summer birthdays or anniversaries. The August birthstone, peridot, is immediately identifiable by its green-yellow hue, and it's said to elicit positive energy.
While shopping for peridot jewelry, consider the full range available at Helzberg. Peridot rings make a bold statement, whether they feature an oval-cut, emerald-cut, or classic round peridot. Many pieces feature accent diamonds to add depth and a rich color palette.
You might also explore peridot earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. The warm, welcoming hue of the peridot stands out brilliantly against white gold, yellow gold, and sterling silver. It's frequently paired with all of these metals. Peridot stud earrings are a quiet but beautiful accent with any outfit, while larger drop earrings are often the standout star of a look. Delicate pendants and bracelets featuring unbroken strings of glimmering peridots are enough to make anyone thankful for their August birthday.
Peridot pieces have a warm and universally flattering color, so they pair well with many other types of gemstone jewelry. Whether you like to mix up your look with multiple types of gemstones or keep it consistent, peridot definitely deserves a look.
If you want to commemorate a special day in August or you're shopping for someone who simply adores the peridot's unforgettable hue, Helzberg Diamonds has an August birthstone jewelry piece that will make you smile.
Birthstones are gems and other minerals that are associated with a month. This is a tradition that dates back to Biblical times, and through history it was customary to wear the stone associated with the current month during that time, then switch to the next birthstone during the next month. In addition, this was before stones could be identified as precisely as they can be today, so the identities of some of the original stones are unknown. It's only in the last century that the current list has been standard, and since then, it has been more appropriate to wear your birthstone all year 'round.
