About Us


PERIDOT, named after the birthstone of August, the month the first shop opened, was established in 2001 and currently consists of two lifestyle shops in the North East of England. 

We are eclectic gift and interiors shops nestled in the heart of the villages of Sedgefield and Norton, County Durham. 

We pride ourselves on offering a personal and friendly service to both our loyal regular and new customers alike. 

Upon visiting PERIDOT you will discover an Aladdin's cave full of quality statement furniture, beautiful lighting and exquisite home accessories, as well as a fabulous selection of glamorous jewellery, ladies clothing, scarves, handbags and more.

Whether you are looking for a decorative table lamp to elevate your home or a statement jewellery piece to make you stand out, you are sure to find something you will fall in love with at PERIDOT.

Due to strong demand we have recently decided to open our online eShop in addition to the retail shops.

After establishing the first retail shop in 2001, we decided to launch PERIDOT eShop during 2020.

Our stock is chosen based on our best selling products in our retail stores and changes on a regular basis.

While our customer base is predominantly within the United Kingdom, we offer a large selection of products available to purchase worldwide and have a growing international clientele.

We also sell 'Online Exclusives', which are products that are exclusively available to purchase on our website.

We offer a Local Pickup option at checkout for eligible products so customers can choose one of our retail stores to collect online orders.

We also offer a FREE Local Delivery service at checkout for eligible products to customers residing in the postal code areas TS20, TS21 and TS22, which mainly covers Norton, Sedgefield and Wynyard.
