August is one of the other very lucky months to have three birthstones.
This gorgeous green gemstone can sometimes be confused with others such as emerald or topaz, so much so that some historians speculate some of Cleopatra’s famous emerald collection could have included peridot. For many centuries’ peridot has been used as a protective charm, protecting wearers against evil spirits and nightmares. It is the gem given to celebrate the 15th wedding anniversary. Interestingly some peridot has come to earth via meteorites, making this gem rather out of this world. Peridot is the most well known of the three August birthstones, and it’s obvious beauty makes it the favourite.

Spinel can be found in a huge array of colours. The name derives from the Latin word spina, which means thorn and is linked to the shape of spinel crystals. Due to the variety of colours this gemstone can be found, through out the centuries it has been mistaken for other gemstones. In fact the historic red spinel that is set in the Imperial State Crown was previously believed to be ruby. This gemstone is the traditional gift for the 22nd wedding anniversary.
