Happy Spring! Regardless of whether the weather in your neck of the woods is balmy or frigid, the first day of this season is a time to celebrate new life. Peridot rings, with their fresh, light green sparkle, are a perfect way to commemorate this time of new beginnings.
Peridot is a variety of the mineral olivine, though its vibrant hue is more reminiscent of an olive leaf than an olive. Green with a slight touch of gold, its sparkle calls to mind the first new growth of spring and the sunshine that prompted it from hibernation.
In addition to its ability to wake up your look on even a dreary day, peridot jewelry can also serve as a fitting symbol of love that fills you with life. Spring is often considered the season of love, and love is often said to cause the heart to bloom Consider the words of King Solomon’s beloved:
“Rise up, my love, my fair one,
And come away.
For lo, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of singing has come,
And the voice of the turtledove
Is heard in our land.
(Song of Solomon 2:10-12)
Peridot rings are the perfect way to celebrate that “the winter is past”—both literally and figuratively. The 1.50 Carat Peridot and Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold is a perpetually classy celebration of new life, as a glimmering 1.50 carat round peridot serves as symbol that every day is the perfect day for a new beginning. Accenting this beguiling gem are 0.21 carats of diamonds that surround it in a glittering circle and stud the band. This ring is timelessly beautiful and always refreshing.
As a semiprecious gemstone, peridot is an affordable choice, and this affordability is multiplied when you choose a piece that’s set in sterling silver. Silver peridot rings are wallet-friendly and good-looking choices, whether you’re seeking to expand your own jewelry collection or are in search of a gift on a budget.
For instance, the Vintage Rose Peridot Ring in .925 Sterling Silver is a bold yet feminine piece that would make a lovely springtime addition to your finger or an excellent gift for anyone who’s a fan of pieces with lively color. This antique-style ring is lavishly carved with delicate flowers that surround the center gem and cascade down each side of the band. A 10mm-wide oval-shaped peridot sits in the midst of these blossoms, calling to mind a green field overflowing with wildflowers in bloom.
If you’d rather a bold pop of green that’s accented with classic colorless sparkle, don’t miss the 1.75 Carat Oval Cut Peridot in Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold. This striking ring places a 10mm-high peridot on display and gives it sparkling bookends of diamonds. A simple notched design is carved into the band as it sweeps upward to hold these stones, adding interest and a tiny bit of an edge.
It’s hard to beat peridot rings for celebrating new life! When you wear them, it’s always spring.
