About the work: GemDrops Jewelry by Jeff McKenzie is simple, elegand and handmade using recycled silver and vibrant natural gemstones. Each pendant or pair of earrings is completely handmade, and each gem is carefully set using traditional methods and tools. Each piece is meticulously finished for a lifetime of enjoyment.

Peridot is the gem quality variety of the mineral olivine. Origin of name is either the Arabic word faridat meaning "gem" or the French word peritot meaning "unclear". Peridot is one of the few gemstones that comes in only one color. The depth of green depends on how much iron is contained in the crystal structure. It is found in the USA, Myanmar, Egypt, China, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Peridot is the traditional birthstone for August.

Sterling silver is an alloy of 92½ % Silver (.925) and 7½ % (.075) of a base metal - usually copper.

Pure silver is almost perfectly white, very ductile and malleable. It is considered too soft for jewelry or flatware use, therefore the addition of small amounts of a base metal serve to harden the alloy.

All of our jewelry is nickle-free and hypoallergenic.
