Birthstone for August: A Nod to Nature with Peridot
With its vivid spring green color, combining peridot – the birthstone for August – with nature motifs is only, well, natural.
Check out this collection of fine peridot jewelry. Each piece is designed with nature in mind – a double whammy effect since peridot is believed to ease stress, just as nature tends to.
A Collection from Sorab & Roshi
A self-described “world of whimsy,” the jewelry found at Sorab & Roshi on Greenwich Avenue in Connecticut evokes a personality of its own. Jewelry maker Sorab uses color and light to balance the gemstones with the metal that frames them, taking great care to leave as little metal work visible from the front of the piece as possible.
The collection below features a wheat pin with faceted marquise lemon citrines, as well as a bead necklace and double stone earrings that both feature the birthstone for August.
A Four-Leaf Clover from Brilliant Earth
Featuring four heart-shaped peridot accents surrounding a round brilliant center diamond, this charming clover ring is detailed with a sparkling diamond-encrusted stem.
This nature-inspired look is only fitting from Brilliant Earth considering their ethical sourcing commitment to feature only authentic and eco-friendly pieces.
