Clustered Peridot Hoops

$88

Reminiscent of a holiday in Italy, these clusters of peridots hang like luminescent green grapes on the vine. Nine sparkling peridot teardrops hang from handcrafted 14kt gold-filled hoops.

Measures approximately 2″ in length.

Did You Know:   Peridot has been long considered to be an aid to friendship and supposedly frees the mind of envy. It is credited with bringing happiness and good cheer, attracting lovers, and strengthening the eyes. Pliny the Elder wrote that peridot is dull during daylight hours but will glow like a hot coal by night. The peridot is created from fire: lava and magma that spewed forth from volcanic eruptions. In Hawaii, the black basalt rock and the black beaches are studded with millions of tiny peridot grains. But before you rush to buy your plane ticket and crack hammer, most of the peridot on Hawaii is either too small to use, or is locked up in very hard rock and cannot be mined.

 

Description

As a contemporary alternative to soaring costs of solid gold, some of our jewelry is listed as gold-filled. Unlike gold “plating”, gold-filled is a thick layer of 14k gold, pressure-bonded over a small core of base metal (usually brass). It is permanent and will NOT wear off or tarnish…we guarantee it for the life of the jewelry. Most people with metal allergies who feel they must wear 14k gold usually do not have any problems with the gold-filled.88
