August – Peridot

The August birthstone, peridot, symbolises strength. It is sometimes called the evening emerald for its light green colour. It was once believed that the green peridot crystals found in volcanic ashes were the tears of the volcano goddess, Pele.When set in gold, this gem was said to protect the wearer from nightmares. It is also the stone given to celebrate the 16th year of marriage.
We have some beautiful pieces with the Peridot stone, take a look at the collection.
