Hi everyone! :wavey:
I haven't been on much for awhile, but I could use some help. I'm going to have a custom pair of earrings made in a few months and need help finding a matching pair of Peridot. My max budget is $150 for the stones, but would like to keep it closer to $80. I'm not 100% set on cut, but leaning more towards ovals. Looking for 1-2 carats per stone, so 2-4cttw. I've looked around on eBay and etsy and have found a handful of sets that fit in budget and size, but haven't fell in love with any color wise. I'd love to find a pair that fall somewhere in between the traditional olive coloring and popular grasshopper color. I'm not too familiar with treatments of Peridot, I'm okay with heating, but would prefer no other treatments.

I just finished going through all those sites, and while I truly appreciate the links, I didn't see any matching, or close to matching pairs. Also there were only a few stones that were in my range and sadly not anywhere near the color I'm looking for. I'll keep my eye on those sites though for sales and inventory changes.

In the meantime, I'm still on the hunt if anybody comes across anything, I'd greatly appreciate the heads up. Luckily I have a few months before I start the earrings, I have two other projects to finish first.

These are the pairs that I have found so far that fit into what I'm looking for size and price wise. I'm really not great at judging things like cut, extinction, windows, etc. Any opinions on these? 1st impressions?

If I know the vendors, I might be able to tell you more. The photography techniques are all very different so I suspect some may not look like it does in the photographs, which is why CSers put together the list (which I pared down for you). If you don't see anything you want listed, contact the vendors because they don't always have the time to post their full inventory.

Sorry I didn't reply with all the vendors Chrono. Part of me was worried someone else would snatch what I wanted. I appreciate all your help though, and hoping for opinions.

I decided on this pair. They do have a good return policy, so if they're not great or I don't like them in person I'm not stuck. The stats are listed as the following:
Gemstone: Peridot
Color: Neon Parrot green
Cut: Oval
Clarity: VVS
Size (lxbxh): 11x7x4
Weight (ct): 6.13
Quantity: 2 Pieces
Origin: Pakistan
Treatment: None

From eBay seller bluecosmo (has 100% feedback based in Thailand), also has a company name of OilPearl CO Ltd. (according to my PayPal receipt).

I'll be sure to post pictures once I receive them, but initial thoughts?
