Perfect in Peridot: The Latest Jewels for Your August Shoppers (and Beyond)



Anyone who was born in August, or whose favorite color happens to be green, has probably owned or at least coveted at least a handful of peridot jewelry. With a demeanor that can’t be interpreted as anything but jovial and sunny, the gemstone is a hit with shoppers and so seriously giftable. Who doesn’t like green? Peridot can be just as playful as it can be refined, appearing as much at home in a sterling silver bangle as it does in an investment-worthy cocktail ring, both drawing glances from clear across a room. Its color ranging from a palish green to a bright, rich chartreuse to a dark olive (the most valued hue), the stone is cheerful, brightening any ensemble, any mind-set. And when is happiness ever not in style? I highlight the gemstone now given it’s the birthstone for the month of August, true, but it’s a popular and much beloved stone all year long, given the allure of its spritely color and the lore about its spiritual qualities. The stone is said to have the power to soothe, reduce stress, and to protect the wearer against negative emotions, warding off feelings of jealousy, irritation, and anger. Who doesn’t need that every once in a while, right? Here are 16 looks, with a range of price points for everyone, that your clients—born in August or not—will love for their color and design. Stock up now for the holidays!
