August may be almost halfway over (summer where have you gone?!), but there's still plenty of time left to find a peridot gift for the lucky people that have birthdays this month. I happen to be an August baby, and love my birthstone! The stone's punchy green hues are a welcome addition to any neutral outfit, and look beautiful in both the cabochon and faceted variety. Below, I've gathered images of some of the beautiful peridot pieces Jane has designed... Starting on the top left, we have one of Jane's newest rings from her "Color Candy" collection. The center stone is a peridot cabochon with tsavorite garnet melee on the shank, giving this ring some extra green pizazz. Beneath the ring are some earrings from her past collection, "Tom Foolery," and feature both faceted and cabochon peridots in one earring. I love the juxtaposition of the two, offset by the little diamond accent!
In the middle column, I've featured a classic pair of solitaire earrings and necklace from the "Twinkle Twinkle" collection. For my 21st birthday, Jane gave me a beautiful pair of earrings just like those, and I am always complimented on them! Underneath, we've got an update to the solitaire drop from "Color Candy," where Jane added some large peridot melee to the ear wire. It's a bold new look that we are loving.
In my last column, I showcased some faceted peridot complimented by a hint of diamond pavé, all from "Twinkle Twinkle". The top earrings are actually diamond huggies with interchangeable peridot charms. We had a customer buy this exact look for his wife for Christmas, and then surprise her with another pair of London blue topaz charms for Valentine's Day, which I thought was such a fun idea! The ring is also very versatile, as it looks beautiful when worn alone, or stacked with different colored solitaire faceted and pearl rings.
Give us a holler if you're interested in any peridot jewels and enjoy the rest of your August!
