I cannot believe that it is August already! This is the perfect time to celebrate the birthstone of August, which is the bright green peridot. The peridot is an olivine, which scores a 6.5-7 on Mohs scale of mineral hardness. Peridot is a light olive-green color and is one of my favorite gemstones. We design and create all kinds of birthstone jewelry, which is appropriate to give to a mother or grandmother on Mother's Day or for any special occasion. 1. Floating Peridot Halo Drop Earrings These peridot earrings feature a seemingly "floating" cushion cut peridot stone. The diamonds have a total carat weight of 0.40 cttw and have G-H color with SI clarity. The cushion cut peridot gemstones measure 6mm by 6mm and are AAA quality. 2. Domed Peridot Landmark Eternity Ring Sleek, clean, and classic lines make up this domed landmark eternity ring. Each stone is flush set into the ring by hand. The ring has a width of 3mm and can be worn alone or stacked next to other eternity ring designs. Platinum, 18 karat gold, and 14 karat gold options are available for this ring. 3. Peridot and Diamond Five Stone Band A five stone ring made from alternating diamonds and peridot gemstones will delight any woman.
