What do you get when you pair an extraterrestrial, wild child gem with a stone of royal lineage and pedigree? A perfect match.
Sunny green peridot is born out of chaos, found in pallasite meteorites, as well as in lava and deep in the Earth’s mantle, earning it the nickname the “extreme gem.” On the opposite end of the spectrum, you have deep purple amethyst known as the gem of blue bloods and royalty, garnering this gem a spot in the British Crown Jewels.
You could say these two gems are opposite. In fact, the two colors of these gems are opposite each other on the color wheel— which makes them “complementary” colors—as in they bring out the best in each other. In color theory, this means that when put together they create a distinct contrast, each color making the other brighter and more distinct.
The Peridot & Amethyst Complementi Bracelet highlights the distinct beauty of these two contrasting gems with 90 total carats of these two very special gems.
