Peridot’s leafy green sparkle is a wonderful match for other green tones. Our Peridot Shimmer and Eden Green Color Party pairs the color with lush crystal pearls, luxurious Emerald bicones, clean Chrystolite Opal beads, and even the iridescent teal green of the Iridescent Tahitian Look pearls. For more contrast, try mixing this color with terracotta and wine tones, like our Bordeaux and Eden Green Color Party.Â
Peridot crystals create a wonderful pop of refreshing sparkle however they are used in jewelry. Our Claire necklace shows off how wonderful this color looks with gold findings and the eye-catching Crystal Lime Shiny LacquerPRO effect and Scarabaeus Green pearls. You can also pair it with bright silver, like our Early Bird necklace. If you’re looking a more playful display, why not try using it with every color of the rainbow! This color makes a wonderful touch to the Crystal Vitrail Medium pendants dangling from the Your Majesty earrings.Â Â
The Shimmer effect adds even more enchantment to this wonderful color. Our Shimmering Fields bracelet shows off the subtle iridescence of Peridot Shimmer by pairing it with Siam Shimmer and Yellow Opal AB bicones for a design that’s bursting with meadow beauty.Â
Swarovski’s Peridot color also looks beautiful with brass components in this Peridot Passion necklace. The Swarovski team designed this necklace to perfectly show off the beauty of this color. The rich, deep color of the brass makes Peridot pop even more.
