It’s hard to believe, but we’re already in August! A new month, of course, means a new birthstone to celebrate. Those who are born in August claim the peridot precious stone as their birthstone. Unlike other stones like sapphires, diamonds, and topaz, the peridot is exclusively available in one color–green. However, the particular shade of green can vary from stone to stone. So in honor of August borns, let’s have a look at some gorgeous peridot jewelry.
