***STRICT LIMIT OF 3 PER HOUSEHOLD***

Sparkling in a dizzying array of colours, gemstones are believed to have heightened attributes during the month they represent. This monthly series offers a cross-cultural celebration of the powerful, symbolic beauty of birthstones, which are each as distinct and unique as those who cherish them!

The reverse design by Three Degrees Creative Group is both visually compelling and richly symbolic, with a thoughtful melding of traditional and contemporary design elements. In the background, a beautifully engraved lotus pattern fills the reverse in a modern take on the blooms that traditionally symbolize purity of the heart and mind. A majestic, mid-relief dragon is brought to life through intricate engraving that recreates it in extraordinary detail; its presence also carries a strong meaning, as the dragon is a time-honoured symbol of power, strength and good luck in Asian mythology. Above it, a traditional circular motif bears a Swarovski¨ crystal embellishment that represents aquamarine, the birthstone for March, which is said to bring courage and health to those born in the month. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

A deeply meaningful gift for a birthday, wedding, anniversary, birth or any occasion to let someone know that they are treasured.
