If you’re the type of bride looking for something different, peridot engagement rings are worth considering. Pronounced with a silent ‘t’, peridot is known for its vibrant shade of green. Unlike emeralds, which come in a range of deeper green shades, peridot stones range from light, almost luminous green to various other shades of green. Their vibrancy is one of the things that makes these stones sought-after for jewellery. They have a hardness rating of 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale, making them suitable for frequently worn jewellery such as engagement rings. If you have been wondering whether this stone is right for your dream ring, read on to see how looks in a variety of ring styles.

The stone is set within its setting without the need for prongs.

Rose gold rings remain a popular choice for many brides. With its rosy hues, this metal turns even the simplest ring design into something elegant and feminine.

If you’re looking for a truly breath-taking ring, this one is a show-stopper. Two tone rings are a great option for those who like their rings to stand out for all the right reasons. The complex design of this ring features a yellow gold band entwined with a pave-encrusted platinum or white gold band. The peridot stone is set onto the gold band in a way that highlights the stone while balancing both of the bands.
This pretty, classic ring is understated, with a split band of platinum or white gold, and a pave band that swirls between the split, curling around the centre round cut peridot stone. The result is a flowing ring style that has plenty of sparkle, along with a bright pop of colour.
Another good choice for brides who prefer minimal styles, this bezel princess cut ring has a delicate gold band, with two tiny diamonds flanking an inverted princess cut peridot. The small diamonds help to position the centre stone in a way that does not distract and rather enhances the balance between the smaller stones and centre stone.
Perfect for romantics, heart shaped rings will lever lose their appeal. In this ring, a small heart cut peridot solitaire takes centre stage. The heart is set on a fine rose gold band. Rather than adding extra details such as pave or additional stones, this ring is kept simple, with the sole focus on the glorious stone at its centre.
