If you are considering buying a gift for your partner but are unsure of what type to choose, one gemstone you may not have heard of is Peridot. Peridot is a green in colour precious gemstone that is becoming more and more popular in jewellery designs. The green colour is usually around olive but can change depending on the amount of iron that the stone contains. Peridot is a form of Olivine which is quite a common material but the gemstone Peridot is quite rare.
Peridot rings can be bought in different types of precious metals including platinum, white gold and yellow gold. And when the Peridot is highlighted by clusters of beautiful diamonds the ring can show off this precious stone to the fullest.
Peridot is the August birthstone so is a great gift for anyone whose birthday falls in this month. It is also supposed to have powers that help to ease anxiety and folklore states the stone could only be found at night because of its strange iridescence that was easier to see under moonlight.
Whether you believe these rumours or not, Peridot rings are a beautiful addition to any jewellery collection.
