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, June’s birthstone is the iridescent pearl, considered a precious gem but not a stone as it has organic origins. Pearls are symbolic of purity, generosity, loyalty and integrity. In Ancient times their serene beauty was associated with the Goddess Venus who like pearls came from the sea. Throughout history they have formed key pieces of precious jewelry such as the classic ‘string of pearls’. Embellishing the gold necklace of this elegant petite figure a sparkling blue grey Swarovski© crystal represents a pearl reflected in the blue grey floral detail of her gown.
