Got a special Leo or Virgo in your life that deserves a gift that sparkles as brightly as they do? August is nearly upon us, and with the balmy weather comes the month of one of the most beautiful birthstones on the calendar. Show your August-born brethren some love with some peridot birthstone jewelry to celebrate the anniversary of their arrival on our planet this month.
Peridot, long sought after for its light-catching properties and highly-pigmented, acid-green hue, are one of our favorite types of gemstone year-round.
However, much like other seasonal favorites (we're looking at you, pumpkin spice lattes), there's a very specific sort of magic to be enjoyed when we indulge in them during their proper time in the limelight, no pun intended.
Historically, peridot was regarded as a powerful symbol of healing, abundance, prosperity, and growth. These gemstones are forged naturally deep beneath the Earth's mantle and generally reach us at the surface via underground volcanic activity.
Anything that goes through that much trouble just to be seen by human eyes and forged by human hands deserves to be celebrated in style, and Albert's is here to experience the magic right alongside you.
Le Vian produces some of the most beloved pieces we carry in our collection; their take on the classic solitaire, featuring a gorgeous peridot set front-and-center in 14k honey gold, definitely gives the rest a run for its money. Included alongside the center stone? Nearly half a carat of chocolate and vanilla diamonds. The precious metal and stunning array of secondary stones gives the birthstone jewelry concept a classy upgrade.
Pandora is obviously one of the big dogs when it comes to personalized birthstone jewelry, their customizable bracelet and necklace configurations are legendary, and their offerings in the way of peridot pieces leave absolutely nothing to be desired. This gorgeously-wrought piece from their collection of charms is a bestseller, perfect on its own on a delicate, low-hanging necklace, and equally striking as one of many additions to one of their classic bracelet combinations.
