Tip #6- Green with Envy: Peridot is more of an apple green, a bright and lively
stone. Peridot is relatively inexpensive and is easily found in sizes up to 5
carats. Peridot rings are just a pleasure to wear. The color is vibrant and in a
certain sense, cheerful.
Green amethyst can be considered more of a neutral
since it has a very soft celadon green color. Since green amethyst is readily
available in sizes from 1 carat to 20 carats, they are many ring options
available. Green amethysts are very inexpensive and you can really get a lot of
bang for your buck, so to speak, with green amethyst. A
engagement ring might be
one you would choose to match her eye color. Green tourmaline can be a forest green or olive
green, generally saturated in color. We have a small, carefully chosen selection
of green tourmaline engagement rings. Many of the styles even have matching
bands. Seafoam tourmaline is one of our favorites at MyJewelrySource because it
has a wonderful unique combination of turquoise, mint, and apple green all in
one incredible stone.
