Royal Doulton Figurine Birthstone December 7" Turquoise



December’s birthstone is turquoise, the unique greenish-blue gemstone derived from the old French word ‘turquoise’ 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.
