As a remembrance of his love, Bacchus poured wine onto the stone and gave it this beautiful color. The meaning of the name amethyst translates ‘without intoxication’ and because of that this birthstone was believed to protect the wearer from extensive drinking and hangover effect."

In the Middle East pearl was the gem of purity preserving wearers’ integrity, even offering protection for those who work at sea. Cleopatra was rumored to use this birthstone for medicinal purposes.

In the most recent times, pearl has become a symbol of high refinement and has been considered the birthstone for a cultured person. (Birthstone.guide)
