Peridot is a beautiful semi precious stone that comes with lovely yellow-green to brown colouring. Peridot jewellery is highly popular – it possesses beautiful lustre and great transparency as well as durability and hardness, which make it perfect for everyday wear.

 

Peridot jewellery has been worn for thousands of years (the stone is even mentioned in the Bible, under the name ‘pitdah’). Peridot has connections with ancient Egypt (some historians believe that Cleopatra’s famous emeralds were actually peridot gems), and it was also popular in Roman and medieval times.

 

In ancient beliefs, peridot was believed to be a gift from mother nature to celebrate the annual creation of a new world, and those who wore it were perceived as gentle, fair and wise. In modern times, some people believe that this stone instils good thoughts in the mind of the wearer.
