Peridot is the official birthstone for the month of August, a vivid green coloured gemstone with a hint of gold. The peridot was believed to be a stone of spring time and a gift of nature in ancient Egypt, where it was known as the ‘Gem of the Sun’. This beautiful gemstone is one of the oldest known gemstones and is believed to be a powerful cleanser that can help your skin and boost your immune system and metabolism. It is the perfect stone to create a statement piece of jewellery in its eye-catching green that would brighten any outfit!
Thomas Sabo’s Freshwater Pearl bracelet is £51.90, and features a gorgeous light green Peridot Charm. It has an adjustable love knot from 16.5cm to 22cm for a versatile fit that will fit most wrists. Other designers such as Spinning jewellery have some gorgeous rings featuring the peridot that are a great addition to any collection, whilst a Nomination starter bracelet with a 18ct Gold and Peridot link is a fantastic way to begin a new collection of memories!
