Topaz is also said to make its wearer invisible in time of emergency. 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.
