With summer here in Bath shaping up to be one of the hottest in recent times, we welcome the cool green of August's birthstone peridot, its colour the epitome of grass green.
Shimmering, pale green peridot, often called the evening emerald, symbolises friendship, happiness and harmony.
Known as the stone of compassion, peridot is believed to bring good health, restful sleep and peace to relationships by balancing emotions and mind. This friendly bright green stone is thought to inspire eloquence and creativity.
Here are some links to some of our favourite peridot jewellery, from other makers as well as ourselves:
