Story

Known as the “evening emerald", the peridot is a volcanic gemstone once treasured by native Hawaiians and regarded as the tears of Pele, the Goddess of Fire. Held in high esteem by the ancient Egyptians as far back as 1500 BCE, it was coveted as the gem of the sun.

It is no stretch of the imagination that this gorgeous vivid organic green colored with golden streaks caught the eye of ancient as well as modern jewelers. A beautiful faceted oval cut peridot of substantial proportion (approximately 5.5 carats ) and measuring 12.5 mm by 10.5 mm has been set in a 10k yellow gold mount with pinkish overtones.

Although more modern in date, the setting is exquisite and fine in its fabrication reminiscent of the wondrous craftsmanship of those Edwardian era jewelers. The floral filigree and scroll work creates a magnificent lattice of gold well suited for this unusual gemstone.
