Peridot is the only gemstone found in meteorites. Granted these particularly lovely, bright Spring green round-cut Peridots are most likely Earth-made, but I find it fascinating to think of all those big chunks of rock flying through the cosmos with these lovely green crystals along for the ride. Is is just coincidence that Kryptonite looks a little like Peridot? I think not.
These two bright and lively peridots play point, counter-point on either side of brightly dancing Old European cut diamond. This hand crafted ring is made in 18 karat gold; the center diamond is an old European cut and measures 5 x 5 x 3.4 mm and weighs .55 carats, the two peridots measure 3.5 x 3.5 x 2.3 mm and weigh .18 carats each, or .36 together. The ring has been re-shanked at some point in it’s long life and has lost it’s hallmarks, but is certainly English in origin and dates to about 1890-1900, it tests as 18 karat gold. This ring measures 5.8 mm north to south and 12.5 mm across the face, it sits 5.4 mm off the finger at the highest point and narrows to 1.6 mm at the back of the band. This ring is a size 7.6 and weighs 2.7 grams.
