When it comes to warding off all malignant forces, there is no other symbol more powerful than the evil eye. The good news is that you can wear it with no fear of being tacky. It is super stylish and on-trend.

The Evil Eye is well-known in many traditions. It can be found in many religions, such as Jewish, Christian and Muslim, whereas Buddhist and Hindu cultures. The evil eye – known in the Greek culture as Matior Matiasma – is a “look” or “stare” that is believed to bring bad luck, misfortune or injury to the person at whom it is directed for reasons of envy or dislikes. To prevent that kind of misfortune and bad luck, they have created different talismans, which are also called “evil eye”. The most popular type of talisman is the evil eye in jewellery pieces, especially in bracelets and necklaces.

A Bit Of History

The first evidence of the Evil Eye dates back many years ago, at least in the 3.300 B.C., when Egyptians and Etruscans painted the eye on the prows of their ships to ensure safe passage. Another evidence comes from the Ancient Greek and Roman era, approximately in the 8th century B.C. Plutarch, a Greek philosopher, tried to scientifically explain the Evil Eye, saying that the eyes are “the chief...source of the deadly rays that were supposed to spring up like poisoned darts from the inner recesses of a person possessing the evil eye.” Another part of Plutarch’s philosophy was that people from the south of the Black Sea had the exceptional power of giving off the evil eye. It’s claimed that those who are highly proficient with the ability tend to have blue eyes because it’s a genetic rarity in the Mediterranean.

During the Roman empire, people felt more aware of the evil eye’s powers as some even believed entire tribes emitted its powers. In ancient Greece, the evil eye commonly appeared on drinking vessels.

What Does The Evil Eye Symbolize?

I am sure you have seen the famous evil eye symbol multiple times. But what does the evil eye talisman actually mean? It prevents you from any harm and bad luck. In other words, it keeps you safe and sound, protecting you with good energy, which is essential when fulfilling your dreams.

In some cultures, such as Greek, Turkish, and other Middle East countries, the evil eye is given as a gift to newborn babies because they are more vulnerable to the evil eye curse. In this way, family members are preventing their baby from any type of bad luck. Admittedly, Gigi Hadid and her partner Zayn Malik were wearing matching evil eye bracelets when announcing Gigi’s pregnancy and when their daughter was born, they also gave her an evil eye bracelet.

But it’s not only that. Many people – especially people from the cultures mentioned above and religions – are used to wear evil eye talismans from a very young age, making it part of their style and their identity, in general, as it helps them feel closer to their roots, as it is said to create a good aura around that person and offer good fortune.
