I really enjoy August, it feels like the last full month of summer.  The Peridot birthstone reminds me of a wonderful aperitif that I love to drink on a hot summer day – Midori – a Japanese melon liqueur. The colour is so impossibly green and served in a chilled glass it has all the taste and magic of summer.  Get your cocktail ring inspiration with a gorgeous Peridot birthstone like this 8.40 ct cushion cut beauty, you don’t even have to be an August baby, Peridot is fashionable no matter what time of the year you were born, Cin Cin!
