Peridot is a gemstone that has been cherished since the time of ancient Egypt. There has been a recent resurgence in its popularity with the discovery of a deposit of some of the finest Peridot ever found in the Himalayas at the border of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Peridot is one of the few gemstones which comes in only one color, green. Traditionally, intense green with a slight tinge of gold is the most prized. Equally beautiful is the Pakistani Peridot that can come in a soft minty green.

We highlight the even color of the Peridot by cutting our gemstones into unique and original shapes like leaf and stepped-kite.

We have a strong relationship with our supplier from Pakistan who provides us with the best quality crystals straight from the source.
