Be seen in green with August's balancing peridot birthstone. Warning: may cause envy amongst your friends. And as we move into Virgo season, it's time for the Marie Kondos of jewellery box organisation to shine.
In need of a little refresh? August is for balance, good fortune, and protection. Peridot's pale green tones are known for encapsulating the essence of nature (we love a good landscape), a meaningful gemstone said to bring a sense of renewal.
It's also associated with abundance and growth, making it a fitting birthstone for a month in the height of summer. Now that's hot stuff.
