August Birthstone Rings

Peridot is considered August’s primary birthstone; its color ranges from a vivid lime green, to a deep brownish-green. It’s one of the few gemstones to be found in only one color and is sometimes referred to as the “evening emerald” for its light green hue. The highest quality peridot has no visible inclusions and is free from brown tints. There are no known color treatment enhancements for this gem, so you’ll always be sure it’s an untreated gem. Like other birthstones, peridot is said to protect and bring good fortune to those born in the month of August. Ancient Egyptians claimed the stone had power to ward off nightmares and evil spirits, referring to it as the “gem of the sun.” Enjoy this ancient gemstone in birthstone rings and other August birthstone jewelry.
