Emeralds and Peridots Show Different Shades of Green
Congratulations, Pamela! The most important rule for choosing engagement ring gemstones is they should please you. However, keep in mind that peridot and emerald are different shades of green. Emeralds are medium to dark green. Peridots are light green. Finding two pieces that will complement each other might be difficult.
Tips for Comparing Emerald and Peridot Colors
Since peridots are relatively inexpensive compared to emeralds, get a few pieces to carry with you while you shop for an emerald. Make sure you compare the stones side-by-side. Don’t try to do this based on online pics. Subtle differences in shade can make a considerable difference in the way they look together.
