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, April's birthstone is diamond, the most precious of all fine gems typically symbolizing everlasting love. Derived from the Greek word ‘adamas’ meaning ‘unconquerable’ diamonds are also associated with courage and endurance. Being the hardest mineral of all diamond is also valued for its beauty, purity and ability to reflect light in a unique way. Embellishing the gold necklace of this elegant petite figure a clear sparkling Swarovski© crystal represents a diamond reflected in the cool grey floral detail of her gown.
