Garnet is the gemstone for the month of January. The traditionally accepted color of the garnet birthstone is dark red, however garnets can actually be found in any color except blue. It is reputed to give the wearer guidance in the night, protection from nightmares and is an antidote for snake bites or food poisoning. This expertly painted figurine, coupled with a high-quality Swarovski gemstone, make the Gemstones collection a perfect gift for anyone.
The Gemstones collection is a great way to introduce someone to the finely crafted ranges produced by Royal Doulton. Featuring a Swarovski gemstone and crafted in exquisite fine bone china, each figure is beautifully hand-made and hand-decorated, demonstrating excellent craftsmanship and artistry. Many people know which gemstone is associated with his or her month of birth. This is probably due to the folklore associated with these stones. Early civilizations as far back as 1400 BC gave mysterious and magical powers to gemstones, believing that wearing the gemstone would give them luck or protect them..
