Peridot – August Birthstone Collection

For the month of August, Breen’s Florist is celebrating with our birthstone collection arrangement, “Peridot.” Our arrangement features green antheriums, bells of Ireland, green cymbidium orchids, and other flowers to help accent the green that represents the peridot gemstone.

While the peridot gemstone is an inexpensive stone, it represents something much more valuable than money. The ancient Egyptians believed that the peridot harnessed the power of nature and was the gem of the sun. It is said that the stone brings protection, peace, and happiness. The accents of white roses represent a peacefulness within the arrangement, while the fun of the lime green orchids and antheriums bring a smile to those who celebrate their birthday this month.

The peridot gemstone is one of the few stones that have only one color: olive-green. The intensity of green depends on the amount of iron that is contained within the stone itself. Other flowers that might also be used to create a beautiful arrangement would be green hydrangea and succulents.

Breen’s Florist’s White Orchid and Succulent arrangement features the olive green colors from the peridot stone.

Married couples can also appreciate the peridot gemstone as it represents the 16th year of marriage. Perfect gift ideas may include 16 Lemonade roses, which have beautiful lime-green blooms.

Breen’s Florist will have the exclusive “Peridot” arrangement available throughout the month of August and remember, you can save 10% on the arrangement by using coupon code: PERIDOT.

Unique August Birthstone Flowers

august birthstone flowersThe popular tradition of sending a birthday bouquet that reflects that month’s birthstone is especially fun in the month of August, when the beautiful and intriguing peridot is showcased. Although it may not be a household name, the peridot is an ancient gemstone that was treasured as far back as the Pharaohs. Often called the “poor man’s emerald”, the jewel is anything but – the peridot is found in gorgeous shades ranging from lime green to olive green, most often with tints of gold. The darker stones are referred to as olivine and are considered the most valuable in the family. The floral designers at Breen’s Florist have created memorable August birthstone flowers that are sure to delight your birthday honorees.

When choosing a flower birthday gift, you have available some truly exotic and unique flowers to represent the birthstone, much like the jewel itself. Perhaps one of the most popular flowers chosen to reflect the peridot are green cymbidium orchids – not only is the striking color of the flowers a perfect match, but the rare beauty of these blooms is just as precious. The flower itself represents love, beauty and refinement, and combined with bamboo, river rocks or curly willow, they make a perfect birthday gift that will bring grace to any home or office.
