Description

Peridot Ring

14 karat yellow gold peridot and diamond ring. The centerpiece of the ring is a lively 1.48 carat cushion cut peridot. There are 3 (0.12cttw) round brilliant cut diamonds prong set above and below the bezel set peridot.

Peridot’s apple-green hue has been treasured for over 4,000 years. The Ancient Egyptians so adored Peridot that the location of its fog-shrouded volcanic mines were a closely guarded secret. The Romans dubbed it “evening’s emerald” because unlike the deep-green emerald, Peridot’s citrus tones remain constant even by candlelight. In the Middle Ages, Europeans adorned cathedrals with fine Peridot stones.

Today, the largest sources of the August Birthstone are the United States, Myanmar, Pakistan, and the Himalayas.

Trace amounts of Peridot have also been found in Hawaii. Tiny grains of Peridot line the beaches, mixed with sand, and are too small to cut. To Hawaiians, they symbolize the tears of Pele, the goddess of fire.
