Birthstone Earrings - August Peridot
One of the distinctive characteristics of peridot (and a chief distinction from other similarly colored gems, such as emeralds) is that their color is the same in both natural and artificial light. This ability to give off the same green glow at night led to their association with great beauty, especially in Egyptian culture. Unlike the beauty of those wearing these stones, peridot is susceptible to breaking easily and require a lot of preventive care to continue looking its best. Today, the gift of a peridot can tell the recipient that they light up a room regardless of the circumstances they are in.
For thousands of years people have worn gemstones to heal, protect and inspire. Peridot in particular is said to give compassion and renewal. We selected organic shapes, rough and tumbled stones and pearls to create completely unique pieces. Just like you! Feel the wisdom of the pearls and the properties of your stone and carry that with you as you move through your day. Wear the earrings as pairs or mix and match with your own earrings to create an asymmetrical look.
