Introducing: Ruth Tomlinson at Peridot

Ruth Tomlinson has arrived at Peridot and we are just swooning for her delicate, sea-inspired collection!  Romantic, original, and properly made by a bonafied British artisan, we can't get enough of Ruth's work.  Check out some of our favorite pieces new in store, and if her siren call lures you into Peridot for a visit, you may just get to take one of these gorgeous works of art home! _MG_5499 Golden coral clusters drip beyond earring posts to catch white diamonds in their grasp like silvery minnows shimmering in a net. _MG_5528 Light green amethysts grow from white barnacle clusters falling from delicate ear wires. _MG_5505 Sapphires set in gathered granulation cast every shade of deep ocean blue upon a ring finger. _MG_5533 Aqua pendants so lucid you could swim inside them. _MG_5510 Sapphire and diamond cluster earrings appear as if you opened an oyster and found them this way.  

Storing Your Keepsakes!

Hello Fine Jewelry Lovers!   How many of you have misplaced your rings? Your earring back? That tiny pendant? I for one, have definitely experienced these unfortunate situations. But there is hope! Storing your jewelry in a safe place will solve these problems. When doing the dishes, taking a shower, gardening, etc, it's crucial to remove your jewelry. But more important is WHERE you store it. Here are some cute ideas! Top left image is our very own Peridot jewelry bowl, ordered from Paloma's Nest. We love the cute tree branch design, and of course its practicality! The bottom right image is an adorable handmade ring holder made by Darrielle's Clay Art on Etsy.com. And both the top right and bottom left antique cases are from Anthropologie.com.     pic collage      

Cold Weather Earrings

With this freezing cold weather and winter upon us, it’s incredibly easy to lose sight of your own personal style beneath the countless layers, jackets, gloves, and scarves piled on to keep you warm. If you’re finding that your jewelry is getting lost beneath the wooly folds of your scarf or the leather of your driving gloves—no need to fear! We have discovered the perfect solution—a dramatic pair of cold weather earrings to not only dazzle just beneath your cashmere hat, but also brighten up any dark, grey, dreary winter day. Even against the white snow, these beauties will shine and pop some color right back into your life.
