Peridot has a unique colour
Formally known as olivine, it has a vibrant lime-green hue that works perfectly in jewellery. It works well in both necklaces and earrings.
Peridot has a wonderful clarity
It comes with eye-clean clarity as the standard. It has a hardness of 6.5-7 on the Mohs scale, so needs a little extra care to prevent any chips or scratches.
Peridot is ideal for August birthdays
As well as being the month’s birthstone, it’s also the traditional 15th anniversary gemstone.
