They will make a lovely jewellery present for her birthday, valentines, anniversary or Christmas. Particularly someone with an August birthday as peridot is their birthstone.
We love the properties, myths and legends attached to gemstones. Here are some for peridot;
Peridot is named after the French word peritot, meaning gold, because the mineral can vary towards this colour. Most scholars however, believe the Peridot is derived from the Arabic word ‘Faridat’ which means gem.
The Egyptians first discovered peridot. The color of the stones, reminiscent of spring, linked them to nature, youthfulness and the goddess Isis. The gems were thought to promote wealth and power for their wearers and also to ward against nightmares and jealous thoughts.
It is also the birthstone for August and the Zodiac star sign Leo, as it is said to bring peace to the wild hearts of their bearers! Along with these virtues it is a lovely gemstone.
The peridot is a natural gemstone so may include inclusions and vary slightly from the images as each stone will be unique.
Your earrings will be beautifully gift wrapped in a matt black box, tied with ivory satin ribbon and a gift card enclosed. This standard service is completely free of charge. You can choose to have an August birthstone gift card, an anniversary gift card that says "there is no remedy for love but to love some more" or one of our standard gift cards.
We also offer a luxury gift wrap service for a small charge. Either black and gold paper finished with a black satin bow and gift card, or silver paper finished with lilac satin ribbon and silver gift card.
