Rock August with Spinel: This Month's Alternate Birthstone

Summer is settling into its final months with the bloom of August. Gardens are in peak production, and the heat is at some all-time highs for the year. If you’re lucky enough to be born in August, your birthstone is traditionally represented by peridot, a bright green stone that captures the sense of August sunshine and growth. But if you were born in August, you have a few options for birthstones.

Meet spinel, one of August’s alternate birthstones. This versatile stone can be found in a rainbow of colors and styles, and is a popular alternative to diamonds.
