The gemstone has a fresh lime color and the flashes of yellow peep through it's green color. This green gem is perfect for a mens ring and for men born in the month of August, peridot has added meaning and significance. Peridot has been mined for thousands of years, an island off the Egyptian coast was the first place where substantial deposits of peridot were found. It is interesting to note that, the gem was often wrongly labelled as emerald in the old days. This mistaken identify caused, many of Cleopatra's amazing 'emeralds' to later test as peridot. In this report we will try to isolate and analyze issues that need to be kept in mind when choosing a gold or 925 silver peridot mens ring. We might make specific reference to the Kaisilver MAN64P peridot gold or silver ring but, will not try to push a sale on you. This certainly is just one of the peridot rings that you could consider and, Kaisilver is not the only source for the jewel. So read the information and grasp the kind of indepth analyze and knowledge that, is not commonly revealed in the gems and jewelry industry. Do not worry about choosing a jeweler or a jewel at this moment - learn the basics before you take the next step.
Natural Gem: It is important that you get a natural gem for your peridot ring. Cheap imitations are often sold with loud marketing hype and this can be confusing for the casual buyer. Natural peridot is today mined in China, Arizona (U.S), Pakistan and Burma. For men who appreciate the true value of natural gems, the good news is that peridot is a natural gem that, is not processed in any way to enhance it's beauty. Rough peridot that is mined is shaped, cut and faceted before being polished. So the actual material remains in it's natural condition without, any external form of treatment.
Origin & Price: Let us review the gem in mens peridot rings with reference to, price and origin of the gem. We just mentioned above that, peridot is mined in a few locations. So which gem mining location would provide the 'best' gem for a mens peridot ring? The earliest peridot gems were mined on a small island which is now named St.John's island. The location of this island is in the Read Sea, less than 50 miles from Egypt. That mining operation gave some of the most dazzling peridot gems but, after being mined for more than 3,000 years - not much is today expected or got from the place. It is very likely that the gem in your mens peridot gemstone ring would come from the U.S (Arizona) or China. The characteristic of peridot from these origins is the, yellows that peek out of the fresh green color. Many serious gem lovers feel that peridot would be a lot less interesting without these yellow flashes. From the view point of size, price per carat and quality - Arizona and China give you the best return for the money you pay. For those of you who yearn for the exotic and are not too scared, to pay an extravagant amount for that - limited quantities of peridot from Burma (now Mayanmar) and Pakistan are attractive options. Going for a Burmese or Pakistani peridot for a mens gold or 925 silver peridot ring, would bring up a gem cost that is around 10 to 20 times more expensive. Keep in mind that all natural peridot is the same mienral olivine, the extra price paid is for the thrill of owning a gem from a source that produces very little of the stone. All Kaisilver peridot gems are from China or Arizona unless, stated otherwise. Let us know if you need a mens peridot ring with a gem from another origin, we will get back to you with details and a specific price quote.
Metal Options: Gold and silver remain the most popular options for jewelry today. The choice of metal for a mens peridot gemstone ring cold depend on a number of factors. While pricing has a strong influence on metal selection, some technical reasons could also creep in. For example a mens silver peridot ring would, need to tackle the issue of polishing tarnish that might form on the ring. Fortunately, the standard silver jewelry polishing options do not negatively affect the peridot gemstone. If you happen to be one of those men who have built up an interest in gem properties and characteristics, you would want to get the 'best' gem within your budget allocation. A mens gold peridot ring would have a sizeable cost component due to the metal cost. This might have an effect on the size, quality or origin of the gem that you choose for your peridot gold ring. Choosing a 925 sterling silver peridot men's ring on the other hand, would allow you to get a nice sturdy ring with a good metal weight and craftsmanship - and yet, allocate a substantial budget for the peridot gem. A gold jewel can be made in 10k, 14k or 18k gold with 14k being the favored choiced. The color of the gold gives you some interesting options too. Peridot with it's lively green color looks great in yellow or white gold - personal preference will lead the way. Though rose gold is not seen often in mens jewelry, the metal color is currently drawing much attention.
Taking Care: Understanding a gemstone will help you take better care of it. This will translate into a better and longer satisfaction from owning it. What we always recommend for all jewelry including mens peridot rings, is to keep them away from environments where they could be struck against hard objects or surfaces. Sudden and drastic temperature changes can also damage gems and should be avoided. Strong chemicals and solvents are not something that should be used to clean gems or jewelry. When cleaning a mens silver peridot ring, you could use any of the reputed (jewelry grade) silver polishing options available. Both silver and gold peridot gemstone rings can be cleaned with, some plain clean water at room temperature, a very soft and clean tootbrush and a few drops of mild soap. Remember to thoroughly rinse the jewel in clean running water after the cleaning process. This will take away any residues that remain from the cleaning operation. Should your mens peridot ring require a cleaning that is beyond the above explanation, seek help from a professional jeweler to get it done.
Ring Design: We are not going to tell you which design is good and which is not for a mens peridot ring - this is something that is a personal decision and needs no marketing hype. However the features of a jewelry design, can do a lot to impact (negatively or positively) the longterm condition of the jewel. For example, the MAN64P mens peridot gemstone ring shown above, has a gem that is oval in shape and has a size of 9x7mm. A huge gem is more likely to get affected by physical impact or hits. The gem mounting in a mens gold or 925 silver peridot ring, can define just how firmly the stone is mounted. A metal border around the rim of the stone (bezel setting) obviously protects the sides of the gem. A ring with a healthy metal weight will be more longlasting and easier to maintain. If you happen to choose a cabachon (non-faceted) gemstone for your mens gold or 925 silver peridot ring, make sure that the gem does not rise too high above the ring surface. A high cut and set gem is more prone to getting damaged by hitting against or being hit by hard objects.
