Let’s talk peridot

In the realm of gemstones, few possess the unique allure of peridot. Known for its clean, vibrant appearance and distinctive yellow-green hue, peridot holds a special place among gemstone enthusiasts. With a hardness rating ranging from 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale, it is indeed delicate but remains an excellent choice for jewelry such as earrings and pendants.

What sets peridot apart is its unmistakable color, a shade of green that is truly one-of-a-kind in the gemstone world. While there are other green gemstones available, such as green sapphires and emeralds, none quite capture the luminosity and brilliance of peridot’s hue.

In my experience as a designer, I’ve found that setting peridot in yellow gold enhances its beauty even further. The warm tones of the gold complement the green of the peridot, creating a stunning contrast that draws the eye. Additionally, pairing peridot with diamonds is always a winning combination; the clarity of the stone is accentuated by the sparkle of diamonds, resulting in a timeless and elegant piece of jewelry.

Whether you’re drawn to its unique color or its delicate charm, peridot is a gemstone that never fails to captivate. In the world of jewelry design, it’s a gemstone worth celebrating for its distinctiveness and beauty.
