August birthstone

by Julia Aufenast August 07, 2012

Peridot has long been associated with light and sun, and in fact the Egyptians called it the ‘gem of the sun’. Very apt indeed, (if you live in the northern hemisphere!) considering that it is the birthstone for August. There is something very sunshine-y bright about the peridot I’ve just listed, with its vibrant golden-green gleam. Apparently it is also thought to banish night terrors, especially if set in gold. Well, peridot does look exceptionally beautiful in gold, but for those of us that can’t run to that, silver offers a coolly lovely foil to its warmth. Just listed I have peridot in a 4mm and a 6mm rose cut cushion cabochon, available here: 4mm and 6mm

And I want to share the joy with you! We have a 20% off your order event, for […]
