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.
