Disney Gems- August

Published:

Doing a new series based on birthstones! Poem that will be 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.

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!

Wow, awesome how you incorporated both peridot and sardonyx! I actually didn't know sardonyx was a gem for August even though it's my birth month until about last week. Go figure!

Funny how the princess I connect to the most is the one who'd have my birthstone!

Oh yes! Esmeralda and Belle were my two favorite Disney girls growing up. The poem does fit, doesn't it? My best friend has an August birthday; is the sardonyx a bit like amber/fire opal in appearance? I don't think I've ever seen one.

Belle is my favorite, and August is my birthday month! Peridot has never been my stone of choice, but it works well here

Nice job with the choices! To tie birthstones with the zodiac, sardonyx is actually one of the stones for Virgo.

I think it's a theme: you chose the perfect princess for August! So many late Leos and early Virgos identify with Belle. She's smart and thoughtful, brave and kind. She's my favorite princess and I was an August baby, so thank you for chosing her!

Just in time for summer reading!

Nicely drawn Belle. Like the way she holds out the book in her palms.

I love Belle ;u;
She's one of my favorites (she was my absolute fav until Tiana came around)
I think she looks really pretty in green.

I never noticed how many different outfits she has in the movie until I sat down to watch it many years later
