About Us Full Copy


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

We are eclectic, quirky, 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 many more items.

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.
