This oval simulated peridot doublet features the vibrant lime-green color of peridot at an affordable price point. Highlight its eye-catching color by using it for a custom pendant design or partner it with complementary-color simulated or natural stones in a bold, multicolor necklace, ring, or brooch. Peridot is the birthstone for August.
Producing consistent green colors in laboratory-created gemstones can be difficult. By using a tinted adhesive to connect two sections of clear lab-created spinel at the girdle, creating a doublet, labs can produce consistent color throughout the stone. Unless the stone is immersed in highly refractive liquids, it is impossible to tell that only the girdle zone of a doublet has color.
The oval cut is an even, symmetrical shape but elongated. The arrangement of its facets is similar to that of a round brilliant, designed to maximize light and color.
