The lovely green of the peridot crystals from Swarovski are reminiscent of the hills of Ireland where the Celtic symbols inside the oval hail from. A gold plated trinity knot and sterling silver Claddagh symbol make this pendant necklace as gorgeous as it is special. The green peridot is one of the birthstones for those lucky enough to be born in August. The gem is said to bring a life of happiness and prosperity to the wearer and is known to have special powers that helps to ward off evil. Just as the stone brings life and happiness so does the person born in August who is said to be extremely intellectual a good communicator and someone who is able to use their natural abilities to help others prosper. Whether for a person born in August or for someone who dreams of escaping to the hillsides of the Emerald Isle this pendant necklace provides both with special significance. The oval shape of this classically designed necklace makes the perfect statement necklace instantly dressing up a simple blouse.
