This birthstone may not be as common as your usual diamonds and rubies, but it definitely makes for a rare piece to add to your collection.
For those who are born in August, you’ll be glad to know that the month has joined June and December as one of the three birth months represented by three different gemstones.
But aside from sardonyx and spinel, our main focus this month is the Peridot.
Widely recognized by its brilliant lime green glow, some believe that the gem is rooted in the Greek word peridona, meaning “giving plenty”, and is usually associated with prosperity and good fortune.
Although it is known as the Evening Emerald because of its sparkling green hue, peridot looks good any time of the day.
If you’re looking for a birthstone jewelery piece, be it for yourself or for your loved ones, consider these stunning must-haves.
