If you were born in August your birthstone is Peridot. Luckily for the rest of us, it’s a gorgeous green that anyone can claim as their own! Peridot’s lively green is the perfect addition to brighten your summer wardrobe. Even at night Peridot’s intense color continues to glow, earning it the nickname “evening emerald.”
I put together three looks to show the different ways anyone can wear Peridot. You don’t have to be an August baby to sport this electric green!
The first look is artisan inspired. If you gravitate towards unique, handcrafted jewelry, experiment with pieces like these. The hammered look of these bracelets is stunning.
Going for the Gold
My absolute favorite part of this look is the layered necklaces. It’s always fun to incorporate basic, everyday pieces with a punch of bright color! Part of these layers were three Peridot rondelle bead necklaces. One I wore as a strand, and the other two I linked together to create a long necklace. The hook and eye closure on these necklaces is beautiful, and makes for a unique & versatile feature when you link two strands together.
Summer in the south can be described in one word. HOT. So I wasn’t about to refuse a fruity popsicle during the shoot!
This look features pieces with a classic style. These were great pieces to layer, as you can see with the rings and bracelets. Double the bracelets mean double the bling! The bezel set eternity bands are a simple addition to liven up any outfit; the color speaks for itself.
