The peridot is one of the very few gemstones which come in only one colour, green. The rich green colour is caused by very fine traces of iron. The peridot is the stone for August also.
Peridot and pearl necklaces can be very striking, the white of the pearl contrasting with the emerald like qualities of the green peridot.
Fashion wise it may not suit everyone and the design and style of the peridot and pearl necklace would be most important.
In addition you may have to go out of your way to locate one locally in your area.
It is comparatively easy, however, to locate peridot and pearl necklaces on line. In this case it is wise to ensure that the dealer you are thinking of buying from is a bona fide dealer and not here one day and gone the next. Check they have a fixed address and contactable phone number. If they are a member of the Better Business Bureau all the better.
Ensure they have a good returns policy in case you find it is not as ordered and wish to return it for a full refund.
If you buy a peridot and pearl necklace examine it carefully and ensure that the settings are firm and not lose. Nothing is worse than losing a pearl or peridot from the piece as, even though you may have the rest, the piece will be utterly spoilt as a result. Check the quality of the pearls. Are they good and round and with a nice luster. Does the dealer guarantee they are genuine? If your not sure get them checked out. The same goes for the peridot. Another jeweler should be able to tell you if they are real peridots or not.
It is possible to find some really nice peridot and pearl necklaces provided you spend a little time searching for just that right necklace and use a bit of due diligence on those you find.
