“Wear a Peridot or for thee,
No conjugal fidelity,
The August born without this stone,
`Tis said, must live unloved alone.”
Can’t help but feel this is a little harsh – but the Peridot is the August birthstone. Think it’d be better to focus on the fact that Peridot is said to promote openness, growth and prosperity. It’s also nice to think that the Peridot is green and the symbolic meaning of the colour green is renewal of life and nature – a much fresher thought! Peridot is also associated with love, truth, faithfulness and sincerity.
It is said that wearing a piece of jewellery containing your birthstone gem will bring you protection and good luck – so here’s a selection for you to browse through – quite hard to choose as there are so many shades of green and so many pretty things to show (had to include the ring again as it’s one of my favourites)!
Happy birthday Leos and Virgos!
