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, August's birthstone is peridot, a light green precious stone originating from the Arabic ‘faridat’ meaning gem and symbolizing strength and protection. Peridot comes from the volcanic mineral Olivine turned green by iron, ranging from yellow gold-green to the most valued deep lime green. In Ancient times the Egyptians treasured peridot and believed it offered protection from bad dreams. Embellishing the gold necklace of this elegant petite figure a sparkling lime-green Swarovski© crystal represents a peridot reflected in the light green floral detail of her gown.
