The Cool Greens of Summer

The dog days of August are upon us and it’s time for some R & R.  I love the sounds of the surf at the seashore with a good book, but I also love to celebrate August birthdays with friends and family.   The traditional birthstone for August is peridot, which comes in luscious, cooling shades of green.  In the past, peridot was sometimes mistaken for emeralds!  These days, green is such a sought-after shade, you can feel free to select from a number of lovely green gemstones.  In addition to peridot and emerald, we have jewelry with green amethyst, jade, green onyx, and more. Whether you choose something to gift for an August birthday, or just want to add something new and pretty to your own wardrobe, take a look at some of my favorites, sure to cap off your wish-it-was-endless summer.
