August Peridot Birthstone 5 Pollen Charm Cluster Pendant Necklace
A dainty pendant featuring a cluster of five delicate oxidised silver pollen charms on a fine trace chain, including three set with August's birthstone Peridot.
The Egyptians called Peridots the ‘gem of the sun’ – so it seems appropriate it’s the birthstone for August. Peridots were also believed to have protective and healing powers. I love the way their green colour shines through in both natural and artificial light, giving them the nickname ‘evening Emeralds’. It has been claimed that Cleopatra’s famous Emerald jewels were in fact Peridots and the Peridot is the national stone of Egypt.
