August is slowly approaching, and that means that the summer is flying by! We want to wish a Happy Birthday to one of our favorite gemstones, the peridot. Peridot, the August birthstone, is a fine standing member of the chrysolite family, and the finest ones will be the richest green. Peridot was used in many different eras including the Victorian and Art Deco eras. It was also paired with beautiful mine cut and single cut diamond accents. We love this gemstone residing in antique engagement rings, and art deco jewelry, set in platinum and our favorite rose gold. Peridot's legend is one of wealth, opulence and abundance.
