Disney Gemstones- July through December. Did these in 2012!

The poem at the bottom of the illustrations was written by an anonymous writer for Tiffany Co. in the 1870s. The poem uses the traditional gemstones rather than the modern ones so some maybe different. I will incorporate the stone somewhere in each girl’s outfit.

July- Ruby- Snow White:

This part of the poem really fits Snow White. Free from love’s doubts and anxiety. She always struck me as kinda air headed…

August- Sardonyx- Belle:

Belle for August! My favorite Disney princess. This is another stone where the traditional is different than the modern one. Sardonyx is in the background and on the book. She is wearing green for peridot though. The poem fits because she saved the beast from living unloved and alone!

September- Sapphire- Jasmine:

This is definitely the craziest part of the poem. I ALMOST did Giselle from Enchanted, but decided Jasmine worked better. She already has a sapphire on her brow, and she does act crazy occasionally. (The market with the camel)

October- Opal- Aurora:

Born for woe? Laid to rest? yeah…

November- Topaz- Esmerelda:

For some reason Esmeralda makes me think of November. Maybe her skin tone reminds me of topaz. Also, the line about friends and lovers: Quasi and Pheobus.

December- Turquoise- Tiana:

 The most successful and hardworking Disney Princess.

Disney Gemstones- January through June. Did these in 2012!

The poem at the bottom of the illustrations was written by an anonymous writer for Tiffany Co. in the 1870s. The poem uses the traditional gemstones rather than the modern ones so some maybe different. I will incorporate the stone somewhere in each girl’s outfit.

January- Garnet- Pocahontas: 

Pocahontas is a courageous girl loyal to her friends and beliefs, so I thought the garnet portrayed her well.

February- Amethyst- Meg:

It’s funny. I chose Meg because in the poem, amethyst frees you from passion, something the independent Meg might want (but not need!) Only after I picked her did I realize she wears purple. Perfect!

March- Bloodstone- Mulan:

his is one of the stones that is different in the poem than what is considered the modern gemstone (aquamarine) I thought this part of the poem fit Mulan perfectly. Brave and Wise. I tried to make her girly and a tomboy at the same time… 

Interesting facts about bloodstone from the American gem society:

The second birthstone for March is bloodstone, a dark-green jasper flecked with vivid red spots of iron oxide. This ancient stone was used by the Babylonians to make seals and amulets and was believed to have healing powers — especially for blood disorders. It is sometimes called the martyr’s stone as legend tells that it was created when drops of Christ’s blood stained some jasper at the foot of the cross. Generally found embedded in rocks or in riverbeds as pebbles, primary sources for this stone are India, Brazil, and Australia.

April- Diamond- Cinderella:

Who else would be a diamond? Innocent, sweet, Cinderella represents the springtime of April perfectly

May- Emerald- Rapunzel:

My birth month! Rapunzel is perfect for this springtime month. 

June- Agate- Ariel

June is perfect for Ariel. It’s modern birthstone is a pearl (from the ocean!) The traditional one is agate. She is a wealthy, healthy, happy princess. ( Also the line about coming to earth is prophetic)

I will definitely take you up on that offer. But trust me. Your art is worth more than 10 dollars.
