About Peridot Jewelry

Buying Guide

When you are shopping for peridot jewelry, the most important value factor to consider is the quality of the peridot. The more vivid and bright the lime hue, the more valuable the peridot. Cut is even more important than clarity, since a well-cut peridot will dance with light.

Gemvara's peridot is a bright spring green without the olive tones that can dampen this gem's sweet color. Because all Gemvara jewelry is made to order, we can hand-select fine-quality peridot to perfectly suit your design.

Peridot is among the greenest of gems in another way too: most peridot is mined, often by hand, by Native Americans on the San Carlos Reservation in Arizona.

What is the meaning of peridot in the language of gems? Peridot symbolizes grace under pressure. It forms in volcanoes and has even been found in meteorites, surviving the fiery plunge from space. Peridot is treasured in Hawaii as the goddess Pele's tears.

Peridot is the August birthstone, the zodiac stone for Leo, and the 16th anniversary gem.

Peridot jewelry is most often crafted in sterling silver, white gold, yellow gold or platinum. Because your peridot jewelry will catch the eye, you will want to match the color of peridot earrings or a peridot necklace closely to the color of a peridot ring.

With a hardness of 6.5, peridot is harder than metal but softer than many other gems. Store peridot jewelry with care to avoid scratches. Because peridot is sensitive to rapid changes in temperature, never have it steam cleaned and avoid ultrasonic cleaners. Clean peridot jewelry with mild dish soap: use a soft brush behind the stone where dust can collect.

Gemvara's fine quality peridot jewelry is designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand in the United States.

Jewelry Care

With a little care, your fine jewelry will keep its good looks forever. The best way to clean your jewelry is by soaking it in a bowl of warm water with a few drops of ordinary dish detergent. If needed, use a soft brush where dust and soap can collect. Then just rinse and pat dry with a soft cloth.

You won't have to clean your jewelry as often if you put it on after applying hairspray, perfume, and cosmetics. Be sure to remove your jewelry before strenuous activities like sports. Keep jewelry away from chlorine and other household chemicals. Always make sure it is dry and clean by wiping with a cloth before putting it away.

To protect the beauty of your jewelry, don't keep it in a tangle in a jewelry box. Remember, gems can scratch metal or each other. When you travel, make sure your jewelry pieces don't rub against each other in your bag. Store each piece separately or wrap each one in tissue paper or a soft cloth.
