We appreciate meaningful jewelry more than ever before (which might have something to do with its grounding effect after the collective anxiety we’ve experienced over the last few years). Along with gemstones, engraving, and personalised jewelry, we’re looking to Evil Eye jewelry for a dose of symbolism and spirituality. Give us some of that protection and positive energy.
It doesn’t hurt that the vacation blues, whites, and blacks of these talismanic emblems is the ultimate way to bring a ‘summer in the Mediterranean’ feel to your layering and stacking. Did we mention gifting evil eye jewelry is also super meaningful? It brings love, luck and well-wishes to the receiver. Now that’s some (evil) eye candy.
What Does the Evil Eye Symbol Represent?
The Evil Eye symbol dates back thousands of years, traditionally a talisman that symbolises protection; it’s known in Greek as ‘mati’ and in India as ‘nazar’. Usually, there is an eye with a blue iris, surrounded by concentric circles. The amulet is said to be able to deflect malevolent intentions and keep the wearer safe. In fact, it’s thought to bring peace of mind, rejuvenation, and relaxation. Wearing these pieces can serve as a constant reminder of positive energy and an armor against negativity.
The History of Evil Eye
The concept of the Evil Eye is a global one, found in folklore all over the world. It’s most popular in the Mediterranean and West Asia, however, it is believed to have originated in Ancient Greece. Over in Turkey, blue was their colour of good luck which is why many had their amulets made in the hue. Though Evil Eye has different names in many different languages, they all mean the same thing: the malevolent gaze.
Does Wearing Evil Eye jewelry Have Any Spiritual Benefits?
Looking for mindfulness or positive intentions? Us too. Evil Eye jewelry is thought to bring positive energy. Eye-shaped charms have been regarded as symbols of strength, protection and magic for millennia.
