The Birthstone Petites Collection of figurines from Royal Doulton, designed by renowned artist Neil Faulkner, draws upon the tradition of different birthstones associated with each month of the year. Represented by a gold necklace which holds a genuine, vibrant Swarovski© crystal together with the same color reflected in the feminine floral pattern on her dress, each stone has its own symbolism thought to bring good luck and good health. With glossy long brown hair swept over one shoulder, soft features and blue eyes, January’s birthstone is the deep fiery red garnet, a semi-precious gem which symbolizes protection and safety, especially during travel. Garnet is derived from the Latin ‘garanatus’ or seed-like as the bright red crystals resemble pomegranate seeds. Also associated with higher thinking and empowerment, this birthstone has been popular in jewelry throughout history. Embellishing the gold necklace of this elegant petite figure a red vibrant Swarovski© crystal represents a garnet reflected in the rich red floral detail of her gown.
