Box-wine? Not so much. In ancient times, Amethyst was believed to protect the wearer from the effects of alcohol -- in Greek, "amethyst" means "not drunk"! The purple gem was sacred to the god Dionysus, lord of the vines, and his likeness was often carved into the sides of Amethyst wine cups. In medieval Europe, Amethyst was worn by travelers to protect them on their journeys, and friends exchanged the jewel to assure that their paths would one day cross again. For any of these reasons, or reasons all your own, call us to discuss setting this gem into your next piece of High Jewelry.
