In case you missed the memo, Pantone’s official Color of the Year is greenery. Greenery represents revival, restoration, and renewal—all attributes perfectly symbolized in Brian Gavin Diamonds’ peridot jewelry collection. The peridot color ranges from a lovely light green to a deeper olive-hued gemstone. The year is still young and our peridot pieces are right on trend for 2017’s Color of the Year.
Peridot is most commonly known today as August’s birthstone, but this sparkling gem’s history dates back to ancient Egypt. Believe it or not, pharaohs would fashion this beautiful gem in sacred jewelry and carved talismans.
Legend says that miners would wait until dark to search for peridot gems because the stone’s glowing radiance was easier to spot after nightfall. As time passed and we grew into the modern era, Peridot stones took on the symbol for the sixteenth year of marriage.
Brian Gavin Diamonds has a wide selection sensational Peridot pieces like the Cushion Peridot Halo rings in 18K white gold. If you favor yellow gold, you’ll also adore our Peridot Pendant that’s perfect for the upcoming spring season.
A little splash of greenery looks just as fantastic in earrings. To show a sense of greenery’s refreshing subtlety, the Cushion Checkered Peridot Studs are an amazing find. When in doubt, our leverback earrings are a nice alternative to a simple stud. These colorful gemstones are versatile enough to add a small pop of color or make a statement depending on the look.
Greenery sets a remarkable theme for the year and we’re onboard with Pantone’s winning choice. To see more glam and glittering gemstones, check out our gallery.
