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, November's birthstone is gold topaz, a semi-precious stone derived from the Sanskrit word ‘tapas’ meaning fire. This gem in its gold form is admired for its sparkling clarity and symbolizes love, affection and the stability of the home. In ancient Greece topaz was believed to increase physical and mental strength. Embellishing the gold necklace of this elegant petite figure a vibrant gold colored Swarovski© crystal represents a topaz reflected in the ochre floral detail of her gown.
