Celebrating Peridot As The Gorgeous Birthstone Color For August

Swarovski August Birthstone Peridot

Peridot is the beautiful birthstone color for August

For the beautiful month of August we celebrate the gorgeous birthstone color of Peridot. People are continually drawn to the enchanting color of the light yet vibrant green tones radiating from Peridot. It is an exceptional color that is considered to bring friendship and is traditionally associated with love, truth, faithfulness and loyalty. Peridot is also valuable in enhancing growth, prosperity and openness. Traditional metaphysical aspects of this beautiful August birthstone include fame, dignity and protection.

Swarovski Crystal Peridot Necklace

Swarovski 6106 Pearshape Pendant Featuring Peridot

The captivating color of Peridot makes it one of the post popular colors that Swarovski makes and is slightly darker in color than the light pastel hue of Chrysolite and is lighter than the richer, darker gem color of Emerald.

Swarovski Crystal Bicone 5328 Peridot AB

Swarovski 5328 Bicone Bead Featuring Peridot AB

Swarovski has created exquisite coatings that are applied to the base color of Peridot, creating an array of luxurious affects to incorporate in each unique design and color scheme. The Aurora Borealis coating is one of the most popular and timeless affects, refracting the light and emitting a rainbow of sparkling colors with pink, blues and yellow hues.

Swarovski Crystal 5328 Bicone Peridot AB 2X

Swarovski 5328 Bicone Bead Featuring Peridot AB 2X

The Aurora Borealis affect is taken to the next level with the AB 2X coating. The entire bead has been coated in this brilliantly dazzling finish that boasts the brightest sparkle available that transforms a normal peridot color into almost neon sheen of lively pinks, blues, yellows, and greens.

Swarovski 5328 Bicone Peridot Champagne

Swarovski 5328 Bicone Bead Featuring Peridot Champagne

The subtle sophistication of the Champagne Coating is a unique and fairly rare coating that displays a soft and elegant affect that can be applied to many different colors. The Champagne coating adds a soft yellow sparkle effect which is about half of the intensity of the AB coating, as if a shimmering effervescent color has been poured into the bead, which softens the original color. In some cases the Champagne coating can turn the original color into an exclusive color combination, for instance a Light Sapphire will turn into a light green color after adding a hint of yellow champagne.

Swarovski Crystal 5328 Bicone Peridot Satin

Swarovski 5328 Bicone Bead Featuring Peridot Satin

The Satin Coating is a lovely effect that adds a soft silvery shimmer which is its distinguishing characteristic that also slightly darkens the original color, creating a subtle vintage appearance that is very popular in the fall and winter months.

Swarovski Bicone Bead Peridot Dorado

Swarovski 5328 Bicone Bead Peridot Dorado

Swarovski Peridot Dorado Bicone bracelet

Swarovski Crystal Bicone Bracelet Featuring Peridot Dorado

The Dorado Coating is a tasteful solid bronze affect that is applied to half of the bead.  The Peridot Dorado is an specially unique look that displays a beautiful two toned color combination where half of the bead is a vibrant green color and the other half is a solid bronze effect. This stunning bracelet was created by our wonderful customer Leslie who says “It is much prettier in person – the Dorado finish is just like WOW on this piece. I recommend it to anyone who wants to make a statement – thanks for having it available! I’ve seen it nowhere else.”
