If your birthday falls in the month of August, you’re lucky to have two birthstones: peridot and spinel. These unheralded beauties offer countless pairing options and make unique statement pieces as well as dainty accents.

PERIDOT

Peridot is one of the few gemstones that comes in a single color — a gorgeous light green unaffected by artificial light. Peridot’s hardness is similar to quartz, so it’s an excellent choice for jewelry that gets daily wear.

The stone has been featured in fine jewelry for thousands of years. The ancient Romans nicknamed peridot the “evening emerald” because its color didn’t darken at night, and it was reportedly Cleopatra’s favorite gemstone.

HOW TO WEAR PERIDOT

Peridot looks best with warm skin tones and hazel or green eyes. The bright green stone pops when worn against white, beige, black or navy and adds a touch of color to simple, streamlined ensembles.

Since peridot mirrors the vibrant color of summer leaves and grass, it’s also perfect for creating an earthy, nature-inspired look. Pair it with earth tones such as browns, greens or yellows.

Finally, mixing and matching trendy stackable peridot rings or tennis bracelets with other brightly colored gems is an easy, fun way to incorporate this stone into your wardrobe.

SPINEL

This lesser-known gemstone occurs in a range of colors, including rose pink, deep red, lavender, violet, light and dark blue, orange, yellow, brown and black. Spinel has been mined for centuries, but it was often mistaken for other gemstones. One of the most famous spinel gemstones, known by the misnomer “Black Prince’s Ruby” due to its ruby-red hue, was set into England’s state crown and housed in the Tower of London. The most desirable spinel gemstones are vivid red, cobalt blue, bright pink or bright orange.

Spinel is considered to be a soothing stone, possessing calming energy, and is recommended for those suffering from stress. It’s also used to increase physical energy, vitality and stamina.

HOW TO WEAR SPINEL

Red-hued spinel stones are most striking on cool skin tones. Spinel and other red or pink gemstones are most flattering to brown eyes and also serve as a stunning contrast to blue eyes.

Because red spinel looks so similar to ruby, it can be styled just the way you would your favorite ruby jewelry. Try pairing this common shade of spinel with black dresses, summer stripes, florals, formal gowns and jeans and tees.

Black spinel looks sophisticated and subtle when paired with other neutrals such as beiges, whites, creams and grays. If you have long hair, wear it up to show off black spinel earrings.

Any cool blue shade of spinel will pop next to warm colors such as yellow, orange and red. Blue spinel also works well with other shades of blue and navy.

While diamonds and gemstones are the stars of the show when it comes to fine jewelry design, the precious metals that make up the setting are just as important to a piece’s look and quality. There’s no better foundation for your most treasured jewels than platinum and 18-karat gold.

18-KARAT GOLD

A karat is a measurement of a metal’s purity. 18-karat gold contains 75 percent gold and 25 percent alloyed metals such as silver, palladium, platinum and nickel to make it harder and more durable. And because 18-karat gold is 75 percent pure gold, it has a heavier, more luxurious feel than jewelry with less karats. This means that when you compare 18-karat and 14-karat rings with the exact same dimensions, the 18-karat ring will be heavier.

18-karat gold is the most popular karat weight for gold jewelry, as its strength prevents the prongs from weakening and the stones falling out. 18-karat gold is also less likely to tarnish.

Natural gold and color-saturated alloys are what give yellow gold its luxurious shine. The higher the number of karats, the deeper the rich, buttery yellow tone will be. Since 18-karat gold contains less other metals, its color typically looks richer and deeper than its 14-karat counterpart. The soft patina that develops over time is also specific to 18-karat yellow gold versus the lighter 14-karat gold.

ROSE GOLD

Rose gold first became fashionable in 19th-century Russia, which is why it was originally called “Russian gold.” By the time the Victorian era rolled around, rose gold jewelry dominated the jewelry scene along with yellow gold.   18-karat rose gold is actually an alloy containing 75 percent gold and 15 percent copper or some combination of copper and silver. Because rose gold is by definition an alloy of multiple metals, there is no such thing as “pure” rose gold.

Rose gold’s recent style comeback is the result of a few different factors. Rose gold lacks the more reflective “bling” effect demonstrated by metals like white gold and platinum, making it an understated, elegant alternative. Its romantic pink hue also happens to effortlessly flatter most skin tones.  What once was an uncommon metal worn only by Russian elites can now be found in watches, bangles and even engagement rings. In fact, this trend is so popular, we believe we’ll be looking at the world through rose-colored glasses for years to come.

PLATINUM

Platinum is the most precious metal in jewelry. Like gold, it is rare and heavy, but it is 60 percent heavier and 30 times more rare than gold. Because of its purity, platinum is hypoallergenic, so it’s perfect for people who are allergic to other metals. Platinum prongs offer excellent protection for diamonds, so your stones are less likely to budge when they’re set in platinum.

But platinum does more than just protect diamonds and gemstones. It makes very white diamonds appear bright by enhancing their brilliance. Platinum won’t cast colors into a diamond, and because it’s naturally white, it won’t fade or change colors over time.

You’ll find a lot of vintage platinum jewelry that looks almost the same as the day it was made — with stones intact — because of the its strength and durability. And when you consider the fact that the jewelry you buy today might someday become the heirloom pieces treasured by future generations, platinum is a beautiful choice.
