The brilliant hues of peridot jewelry make it a natural choice for both everyday wear and special occasions. Called "the gem of the sun" by ancient Egyptians, peridot gemstones feature a yellow-toned green color that ranges from pale yellow-green to bright grass green.
If you're looking for a gift for an August birthday, graduation, or anniversary, the August birthstone peridot is an excellent choice. The warm, inviting color stands out next to a wide range of precious metals, from 14K white gold and 14K yellow gold to sterling silver.
Styles vary widely across different types of green peridot jewelry, whether you're looking for a simple modern piece or a more detailed vintage-look piece. Consider a peridot pendant with delicate diamond accents or a bolo bracelet that offsets the eye-catching peridot hue with brilliant diamonds and natural metals. Peridot rings are available in many styles and gem cuts. A pear-cut peridot is the star of the show when framed by a diamond halo, but the peridot is also beautiful as the centerpiece of a solitaire ring. Add a little shine to any outfit with peridot earrings.
You'll also find peridot alongside other gemstones in several pieces of jewelry. The mild color creates a unique look alongside sapphire, topaz, citrine, and other gemstones.
