The Best ways to Add Peridot Meaning & Benefits
Repurpose Peridot Jewelry: If you have some old jewelry with Peridot around that you no longer wear, you can update into a new style or mix it with other old stones you may have.
Here is an old 80’s style bracelet, that was easily transformed into a ring (actually 2 rings; one for mom, one for daughter)
2. Custom Design: If you LOVE Peridot because it is your Birthstone or for the Color or for the Benefits, you can incorporate it into a design custom made, just for you!
I was contacted by a woman entrepreneur who wanted something to show a symbol of her weight loss program and the vision she has for her program to empower her clients. She wanted something wearable to create a touchstone as motivation for her and her clients
She wanted to use Peridot to add meaning to the symbol that she wanted to bring to life. Peridot will help her and her clients with the willpower and endurance they need to overcome their journey and have great success.
She now uses this design for her logo and wears the earrings as a "visual" business card. She says they keep her and her clients motivated as well as feel united to a common goal.
3. Family Jewelry: The best part of birthstones is to commemorate your loved ones by creating a piece customized to the birth month of each family member. This can be in the form of rings, pendants, charms, or anything else you like.
Enjoy the rest of your Summer and I hope to help you add some Peridot into your life or help you with a Peridot gift for others!
