The Fascinating History of Peridot
Peridot's history can be traced back over 4,000 years. Ancient Egyptians were among the first to appreciate the captivating green hue of this gemstone, calling it the "gem of the sun." Cleopatra was known to have loved the stone and had many pieces in her royal collection.
In medieval Europe, peridot became a symbol of purity and morality. It was believed to possess mystical powers, warding off evil spirits and bringing peace to its wearer. The gemstone was even used in the treasury of the Three Holy Kings in Germany's Cologne Cathedral.
Today, this exquisite gemstone continues to enchant, and you'll find some of the most beautiful examples in our peridot collection.
Characteristics of the Peridot Stone
Peridot belongs to the olivine mineral family, and its vivid green colour comes from the presence of iron. Its shades range from yellowish-green to deep olive, and its transparency and lustre make it a popular choice for modern and classical jewellery designs. The stone's durability makes it perfect for everyday wear. You can explore our elegant peridot bracelets, designed to highlight the gem's natural beauty.

Many cultures have connected peridot with healing properties. The gemstone is believed to bring clarity, balance, and prosperity to its wearer. Our peridot necklaces and peridot earrings make thoughtful and meaningful gifts, whether for a loved one or yourself.
