The steady demand for peridot rings is driven by many factors – one of these is the presence of peridot on the birthstone charts. A gold or 925 silver peridot birthstone ring would be even more desirable and special for those of you who were born in the month of August. Peridot gets it’s name from a similar sounding French word and the French word itself, is thought to have originated from the Arabic word for ‘gem’ which is faridat. While the tradition of birthstones has remained strong for centuries, peridot is a gem that is said to have the powers to help anyone who wears it. For those who believe in the special powers of gems and crystals, olivine which is the mineral name for peridot – is supposed to encourage a positive and reconciling attitude. Like most green gems, the peridot the August birthstone is believed to have the capability to help renew personal relationships.
You might have heard that, a peridot birthstone ring brings wealth and prosperity. The gemstone was at one time referred to as ‘chrysolite’, a word that has it’s roots in the Greek word ‘chrysos’ meaning gold or yellow. Most peridot birth stone rings have a gem that is a yellowish-green in color. This is how most of the peridot today mined in China or Arizona (U.S) appears. Most of us have come to adore the lively yellowish-green color of peridot.

These gems which have an almost entirely green color, are generally mined in small quantities in Pakistan and Burma. Gems from China or Arizona will give you a good value for the price paid. However if you wish to get a peridot birthstone ring with a gem from Pakistani or Burmese peridot, expect to pay a high premium for the gemstone.
