Sterling Silver Firefly Earrings to be set with our warm green Peridot high dome style Gemstone representing the glow of the traditional North Eastern Firefly. Peridot is a birthstone for those born in the month of August. Light, bright warm-green Peridot, often called the Evening Emerald, is commonly associated with spirituality and self-expression.
