When Meghan Markle was spotted wearing evil eye jewelry, a new jewelry craze was born. Everybody wanted a jewelry piece with an artistically designed evil eye and we understand why. If you too are obsessed about evil eye jewelry, then keep on reading. This article is about styling fine gemstone jewelry and finding that perfect evil eye design. Discover the fascinating history of this symbol, as well as four gorgeous evil eye designs by Ana Luisa.

The history of evil eye jewelry

Even though we call it the “evil eye”, this is a symbol of protection. The evil eye originated in the Mediterranean zone, which is why both Greeks and Italians claim it. Long story short, the evil eye is both an amulet and a way of getting rid of your enemies. It acts as an amulet, keeping bad energy away from you, but its stare is always directed towards people you dislike. 

In the Greek Classical antiquity, the evil eye was usually painted on vessels. Later, it became an amulet that people would hang in their houses to protect themselves from evil. It was still early on when people started wearing the evil eye as jewelry and they are still doing it today. From necklaces and bracelets to earrings and rings, the evil eye has taken over the jewelry world. And we are happy about it because we could all use some protection these days. 

Whether you refer to its Greek name (mati) or its Italian one (malocchio), the evil eye remains a symbol of protection as well as a beautiful design when it comes to jewelry.
