August Birthstone Jewellery

The peridot has a beautiful lime green glow, and it's one of August's three birthstones, along with spinel and sardonyx. Hawaiians believe it represents the tears of Pele, the volcano goddess of fire who controls the flow of lava. As peridot forms deep inside the earth, it's brought to the surface by volcanoes. His signature green colour comes from the mineral itself, rather than trace impurities. Peridot is one of the few gemstones that come in only one colour but different shades of green. Peridot is a lucky stone and represents prosperity and good fortune. Here's our collection of August Birthstone Jewellery.

In terms of the origin of the name, there are different theories, with some saying it originates from the Arabic word faridat (gem), while others say it comes from the Greek word perdiona, which means "giving plenty". The ancient Egyptians called it the 'gem of the sun' who believed it harnessed the power of nature.
