August Birthstone: Peridot
The lively light green hue of August's birthstone conveys positive energy and optimism, and those born in August are said to be happy, generous people. Peridot is also believed to promote tranquility, enhance speech, and foster good relationships in marriage.
History of Birthstones
Chances are you can name your birthstone, but have you ever wondered how certain stones came to be associated with particular months? Most gem scholars trace the tradition to the Old Testament story of Aaron, whose breastplate was decorated with twelve precious stones, one for each of the twelve tribes of Israel. Over time, these stones were linked with certain powers and tied to particular astrological signs, and later to calendar months.
There are many variations of birthstone lists, including Mystical birthstones, which originate from Tibet and date back over a thousand years, and Ayurvedic birthstones, associated with ancient Indian medicine and beliefs. Birthstones have also been tied to ancient Pagan religions, and even to the collective wisdom of the legendary lost city of Atlantis.
The modern birthstone list, perhaps the most universally known, was released by the American National Association of Jewelers and officially adopted in 1912. Whether you embrace birthstone lore, or look upon it with a skeptical eye, there is an undeniable appeal to collecting a beautiful gemstone that is reputed to hold special power, meaning, and good fortune just for you.

Top Customer Reviews
When they arrived, I was very pleased with the pretty green color, the clarity, facets and the four-prong sterling silver setting. But when I held them under the light and saw how they came alive with brilliance, that cinched the deal. They were the perfect gift for my August "girls."
Since the joy is in the giving, as a wise person once said, I was overjoyed by the priceless expression on Michelle's face when she opened her gift... Ditto Ashley's! Just as I made their special days a little brighter, they made mine!
Aren't kids great? I recommend them with all my heart...as I do this product.

They were packed and shipped in a mailing bag with bubbles to protect them.
The stones were clear and the perfect shade of green. Not very sparkly because they weren't very deep (plus the square-cut).
The silver doesn't irritate my ears (I have sensitive lobes and sometimes sterling silver still make me break out) and the butterfly posts are tight and secure.
All in all, am satisfied with my purchase.
