Holiday Gift Guide 2013

I know everyone's been saying it, but it's kind of wild how fast the holidays have crept up this year. It feels like just yesterday that we were setting up our turquoise and blue "stories" and cases over here at Peridot, bracing ourselves for the summer heat, and picking out the perfect delicate pieces to go with our sundresses. But now we're bundled, and so happy to have some lovely sparkle to add to our snowy and cold days over here in the North-East! And believe me--we have TONS of sparkle this year. And now, we present to you our Peridot Holiday Gift Guide 2013--with a couple of local and miscellaneous gift ideas for perfectly well-rounded gift-giving, at ANY price point.   Moritz Glik Diamond "Shaker" Necklace. Those are all loose tiny diamonds encased in white sapphire on a gold and oxidized sterling silver chain with diamond detail. This necklace is BEYOND fabulous--elegant, dressy, and guarantee to make anyone who wears it feel like a queen.

Box-2 (4)

This Wednesday at 5pm: Meet Jessica Hendricks - Founder of The Brave Collection!

We are in awe of Peridot’s own Jessica Hendricks. At only 25, her initiatives with the Brave Collection have been incredibly heart-warming—she has spread awareness, sparked conversation and has planted the seeds of change immeasurably with her signature “Brave” bracelets.

[caption id="attachment_155" align="aligncenter" width="445"]Brave Collection Founder Jessica Hendricks in Cambodia Brave Collection Founder Jessica Hendricks in Cambodia[/caption] While teaching English in Thailand, Jessica traveled to Cambodia, and was struck by the beautiful and heartbreakingly violent past of the small Buddhist country. She witnessed the current reality in Cambodia—young girls as items for sale on the streets—and was ignited by a passion to create an opportunity to counter these wrongs. Jess was shocked to learn that slavery still exists today, and so many young girls are falling victim due to human trafficking. She wanted to find a way to fight for them. A Brave bracelet connects our local community to Cambodia—fusing our worlds and creating a global connection and awareness. [caption id="attachment_154" align="aligncenter" width="449"]Handmade Woven Brave Collection Bracelet Each individual Brave Collection Bracelet is handmade by a local Cambodian artisan.[/caption]   Each intricately woven piece of jewelry is handmade by a skilled Cambodian artisan, who infuses each piece of jewelry with a history and culture that we receive in each individual Brave bracelet. When you wear your bracelet, you join a team of activists that use fashion as a statement for real change. Courage is contagious.
