The mellow glow of the Peridot comes in shades of pale green to olive and even lime green, earning this lovely gemstone the nickname ‘The Evening Emerald’. It is also believed that the stone has the power to ward away Evil and nightmares, bestowing peace and progress in one’s life.
Peridot is pretty rare to find, but mines for it can be found in Egypt, Australia, Kenya and Brazil. And the United States has a few peridot mines in Arkansas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and Hawaii.
Where to find Peridot Jewelry
& Margoni also do! Of course, I couldn't a blog post about jewelry designers using birthstones without showing some of my work, amiright? Here is some of what I currently have on my website JosieGraff.com, including my JG Signature Ooak Paisley Necklace with a 15mm Peridot Trillion and Fine Silver Granulation and my JG Signature Ooak Paisley Earrings with Peridot to match.
I have a confession to make-I'm obsessed with Sundresses! I mean, they are the easiest & fastest way to stay cool and look gorgeous in the summer heat. These two dresses in pink and white lace pair beautifully with Peridot jewelry. Adding a Peridot Statement Necklace & Earrings to either this white & tan bodycon top and pencil skirt or this pink blouse & skirt combo will give you a polished look for your late summer work outfits.
There you have it, lovelies! I pretty much covered everything you need to know about Peridot, from the type of mineral and color, to where it's found, how designers use it to create beautiful jewelry, and ideas on how to style outfits with this gorgeous birthstone. Let me know if you have any questions, comments or styling ideas about Peridot, I'd love to know & help!
P.S. Here's a video I did on Peridot. I hope you enjoy it!
