PERIDOT GEM - exquisite, natural green Peridot 8.57g (5 CARAT) Arizona
Peridot stones are known for its bright, vibrant, green hue, and its color grade plays a major role in the gem’s value. Unlike some gems such as diamonds, the number of inclusions is not the main factor in the color grade. Instead, the richness of the color, which is garnered by its hue, saturation, and tone, is more important.
Generally, the more saturated the color, the more valued the gem will be, as saturated color means that inclusions are less visible. Peridot with a brownish tint is considered low quality and should be avoided.
As with any gemstone, an important determining aspect of peridot value is the carat/size of the gem. The gem’s color is at its best when in stones that are 10 carats or more, further increasing the value of larger stones.
Gemstones can be cut in many different styles depending on the type of jewelry it will be used for. Peridot cuts include round, cushion, oval, princess, emerald, and pear. The two most popular styles are round and emerald, which work well with the stone’s delicate crystal structure. In terms of ring styles the most popular styles of peridot rings are solitaire, halo, and three-stone, all of which can be purchased at With Clarity.
