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, December’s birthstone is turquoise, the unique greenish-blue gemstone derived from the old French word ‘turqueise’ meaning Turkey from where the stone was originally brought to Europe. It is one of the oldest gemstones in man’s history used as a talisman to protect kings, shamans and warriors. Primarily symbolizing protection and strength, turquoise is also associated with good fortune, love and success. Embellishing the gold necklace of this elegant petite figure a vivid blue-green colored Swarovski© crystal represents a turquoise reflected in the greenish-blue floral detail of her gown.
