Peridot and Gold Pendant
This 14K yellow gold pendant is set with 1.94cwt round Checkerboard cut Peridot. The 8.0MM round gem dangles from a simple gold bail, in a 3-prong setting.
The ancient Egyptians mined peridot on the Red Sea island of Zabargad, the source for many large fine peridots in the world’s museums. The Egyptians called it the “gem of the sun.” Today this gem is still prized for its restful yellowish green hues and long history. Large, strongly colored, examples can be spectacular, and attractive smaller gems are available for jewelry at all price points.
Birthstones and Anniversaries: Peridot is one of the birthstones for August, and it is also the gemstone of the 15th wedding anniversary.
