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, July’s birthstone is the vivid red ruby regarded as the precious King of gems, symbolizing power, wealth and protection but also love and passion. The name originates from the Latin ‘ruber’ meaning red and there was a legend in Ancient times that rubbing rubies on the skin would restore youth and vitality hence its further associations with energy. Embellishing the gold necklace of this elegant petite figure a vibrant red Swarovski© crystal represents a ruby reflected in the rich red floral detail of her gown.
