Pearl is the gemstone for the month of June. A pearl is the product of an oyster’s defense mechanism. When a foreign irritant is introduced, either by man (cultured) or naturally, the oyster immediately surrounds it with layers of a substance called nacre. Pearls have been recognized as the emblem of modesty, chastity and purity. They have come to symbolize a happy marriage. 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..
