Guide to Wearing Peridot Jewelry

Posted on

Peridot, the birthstone for August, can range from pale yellow-green to deep olive. A symbol of strength and earthiness, peridot is thought to bring happiness and a sense of calm to wearers. At Hannoush Jewelers of CT, we believe that birthstones are more than symbols of the calendar year. Think of these gems as new color trends to elevate your style!

Peridot is on the higher end of the Mohs hardness scale, so can be worn as everyday jewelry without worrying much about damage. 

We offer 3 quick tips for wearing peridot jewelry.

Bring Outfits to Life

If you have a lot of neutral and earth toned clothing in your closet, peridot makes the perfect accent color. Add a touch of vibrancy to white, black and tan outfits with a peridot necklace, bracelet or earrings. Looking to make a bolder style statement? Pair deeper green peridot jewelry with hot pink or navy blue and yellow-green peridot with maroon or purple.

Mix Different Gemstones

You can match peridot with more than clothing colors. Mixed gemstone jewelry is a great way to combine your favorite hues, while bringing attention to your accessories. Some striking combinations include peridot with amethyst, blue topaz and pink diamonds. Whether you decide to stack rings or wear cluster earrings, you’re sure to make a statement.

Consider Bridal Jewelry

Did you know peridot is considered to be a 16th wedding anniversary symbol? Today, the August birthstone has become more widely accepted for all types of bridal jewelry. From engagement rings to wedding bands and anniversary bracelets, different shades of green complement most silver and gold settings.

At Hannoush Jewelers of Connecticut, we have an extensive inventory of jewelry, from peridot to traditional diamonds. When you’re looking for a birthday gift, an engagement ring or an accessory to complement a new outfit, we are your one-stop-shop! Visit one of our six convenient CT locations today.
