The History & Meaning of The Evil Eye

The Evil Eye is believed to be a 'curse' that is cast upon someone or something. It is popular belief that successful people are victim to this 'curse' due to the envy it brings from others and has been featured by A-list celebrities such as Kim Kardashian.

Although it is a fashion symbol in the west today, the evil eye is actually taken seriously in many cultures across the world. It is believed that giving someone the 'evil eye' may cause them harm or misfortune. It is mentioned in ancient Greek and Roman texts and even the Bible, the Koran, and some of Shakespeares' plays. Luckily, you can ward off the evil eye by wearing evil eye protection jewelry, that will stare right back at the evil eye and deflect any harm or misfortune. 

In Latin America the evil eye is known as "mal de ojo," or "ojos turcos" however they all refer to the same evil eye that has been widely described in other parts of the world. Many modern cultures all over the world still believe in the power of the evil eye and seek ways to protect themselves starting at birth. For example, in Puerto Rico, newborns are given an evil eye protection bracelet to keep them safe from the evil eye. 

One of the most famous examples of evil eye protection is the hamsa hand. It is also found in Jewish culture where it is known as the "Hand of Miriam". The recent popularity of the Kabbalah has influenced the Hamsa hand in evil eye jewelry.

There are many ways to protect oneself however the most commonly used are by wearing jewelry such as evil eye necklaces, evil eye earrings, or evil eye bracelets
