Pretty Peridot...

I love the color green.  To me, it represents life, vitality, vigor.  Peridot is one of my favorite gemstones due to its incredibly lively green color (almost mysterious in its hue) and August's illustrious birthstone.

Peridot is SUCH an awesome hue that Chanel even made it a nail polish shade:

Which would go quite nicely with this Peridot frock:

I've been playing around with peridot to create some components for a few jewelry pieces I'm creating for an upcoming wedding:

What are your favorite peridot pieces?
