Have you seen evil eye shaped amulets being worn by celebrities lately? I’ve seen these charms worn by Rhianna, Lauren Conrad, Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, Kelly Ripa, Brad Pitt and Cameron Diaz. This stylish and iconic evil eye image is found in various jewelry pieces that feature both modern and traditional designs.
The traditional charm is made of handmade glass and features concentric circles or teardrop shapes in dark blue, white, light blue and glack, occasionally with a yellow gold edge. Beautiful silver, gold, and glass evil eye pendants are meant to ward off evil. If you want to keep evil away from you, try wearing an evil eye pendant as a symbol of good look and for protection against evil.
When traveling in Greece, Afghanistan and Turkey you will find many stores selling Evil Eye jewelry. A popular item for tourists, these charms called Nazers are used to ward off the evil eye. In Turkey or Greece, the Evil Eye is very ingrained in every day life. The evil eye has deep symbolism throughout the Greek culture. The Evil Eye pendant is affixed to anything that is perceived to attract greed, envy, or ill-will.
