I was never crazy about my birthstone, peridot. Next to either silver or gold metals, I just have never been a fan and I have a sneaky suspicion that that is the consensus across all women born in August. I did not even want to buy any of the peridot product in the Lele Sadoughi birthstone collection. No, not even the August headband.
My aversion to wearing peridot jewelry ceased when I uncovered Bea Bongiasca jewelry. This is a relatively recent brand discovery. Based out of Milan, she has been designing jewelry since graduating with a degree in jewelry design from Central Saint Martins circa 2013.
Bea Bongiasca works with semi precious stones and enamel. The bright and bold pops of color next to peridot just works. I loved it so much that I finally jumped into wearing birthstone jewelry. I chose this ring and a pair of matching enamel earrings, though I love all of the below peridot pieces.
