YELLOW GOLD: Gold is a precious metal with a natural yellow color. It is quite soft and often alloyed with other metals to increase its strength. The purity of the metal is indicated by a unit called a "karat," with 24kt having the highest percentage of natural gold.
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
PERIDOT: the birthstone of the month of August, peridot is only found in one color: green. Historians are now convinced that some, if not all, of the emeralds that Cleopatra was famous for wearing were not actually emeralds but deep green peridot stones from Egypt.

Diamond: The hardest and most brilliant of all gemstones, a diamond can make the heart race with its pure and fiery spark. An ancient symbol of love, a diamond is the preferred gemstone for tokens of affection, such as rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Diamond is the birthstone for April.
This is a very pretty ring. The peridot is a lovely shade and a good size. The diamond accents are a nice touch and compliment the stone well. If you are looking for more substantial diamonds this may not be for you but I am very happy with the look.
I'd love a pendant to match!

Perfect ring - simple yet exquisite!
I purchased the ring for my college-aged daughter. She loved it. The peridot color was beautiful. I've been very happy with all my purchases from Ross Simon over the last 13 years or so. They've never let me down. They have such a variety of designs and selections to choose from. You will not be disappointed.
