This month we are celebrating the beautiful olive green August birthstone – Peridot. This stunning stone is redolent of this time of year, as although we are still enjoying the Summer, the seasons are letting us know that Autumn is on the way. And just like the leaves changing, the green of the Peridot features a glimmer of gold – a sign of what’s to come.
Its striking colour has also earned it the moniker “the evening emerald”.
Peridot is one of two gemstones formed in molten rock (its counterpart is the Diamond), and is created by the immense surge of power during earthquakes or volcanoes. However, the basic form of Peridot, known as Olivine was found in the samples returned by the Stardust Space Probe in 2006 and traces have even been found on the Moon. This stone is simply out of this world.
Peridot comes with its own set of powerful characteristics – with strength at its core. It’s believed that the wearer will benefit from increased power and influence, rejuvenating personal awareness and wellbeing. And when set in gold, it gives the added benefit of protection from nightmares.
For a personal gift for the August baby in your life, check out our Initials Collection – team up initials with a beautiful Peridot drop stone, matching rings also available in gold and silver.

Entering September, we are now 3 quarters of the way into the year with only a few months left to wrap up everything left to do on our 2018 goals list. September is the perfect time to pause for a bit of self reflection and honest evaluation of everything you’ve done so far this year, and what you have left to do. What other gemstone other than the richly coloured lapis lazuli then could be more appropriate for this mindful time of year.
With its deep blue hue accented by gold or sometimes white flecks, the Lapis Lazuli stone is one that symbolises honor, wisdom and truth. A historically prized gemstone in Egypt- a country which is home to some of the largest and oldest of Lapis Lazuli mining sites – Lapis Lazuli was often closely associated with royalty and a supernatural connection with the Gods. In fact, many ancient Egyptian Kings, Queens and High Priests have been found to be buried in tombs set with Lapis Lazuli or with ornaments made from the gemstone.
Wearing Lapis Lazuli is said to help enhance good and balanced decision-making skills, encourage honesty of spirit and promote deep and connected communication in relationships.
Being a stone of wisdom, Lapis Lazuli is also said to boost intellectual ability, learning and memory, thus making it an ideal stone to wear if studying for an important exam or learning a new skill.
Whether you’re a September baby looking for your birthstone or have just fallen in love with the enchantingly deep blue hue of this gorgeous gemstone, you should definitely check out our range of stunning Lapis Lazuli gemstone pieces. Here are some of our favourite Lapis Lazuli pieces:
