August Birthstone: Peridot


It is the month of August and all the Leos and Virgos who are celebrating their birthdays this month have a beautiful birthstone called peridot (pronunciation rhymes with “dough” J). A vibrant lime green color, peridot is an olivine gemstone known for its healing powers and ability to bring peace, happiness and good luck to its wearer. Under moonlight, peridots have a mellow glow and were therefore dug up at night in ancient Egypt, which also earned them the name “evening emerald.”

A peridot is a wonderful gift for a friend because this colorful, attractive gemstone is generally affordable and associated with many positive attributes. If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind, beautiful gift this month, we invite you stop at any Pawn America and see our  selection of peridots and other gemstones. Pictured top left is a 10 kt yellow gold peridot ring that was just added to the jewelry case at our Midway store in St. Paul, Minnesota. It is affordably priced at $99.99. Following are just  a few more selections from various stores. Enjoy!
