Evil eye jewelry may have been around for centuries but it is definitely one of those trends that has picked up pace over the last few years. Even celebrities have not been immune to the growing trend which has further promoted the purchase of these amulets designed to protect you from all kinds of evil. Celebrities like Shakira, Nicole Richie and Rihanna have been spotted flaunting this fad which has, of course, encouraged jewelry companies to present newer and more innovative designs and styles.
The centuries old tradition of evil eye jewelry was revived once again in the year 2012 and definitely does not seem to be fading away any time soon! Merging luxurious plumes of feathers and vibrant, edgy beads on bracelets gave a completely new and innovative look to the jewelry adding a touch of elegance, style and sophistication that was completely unmatched.
There are various reasons people choose to wear evil eye jewelry including, but not limited to, the following:
- Warding off evil stares, jealousy and envy. The idea is that the “evil eye” stares back at the envious person, thereby neutralizing their intent to cause harm.
- To add happiness, prosperity and peace to everyday life.
- To promote physical well-being and good health. Some even believe that it has the power to heal pains or manage blood pressure.
Although typically evil eye bracelets have been represented by the blue eye there are a number of designs available in the market today. The Hamsa (also known as khamsa) is a hand shaped amulet used for protection by two major religious followers: the Jews and the Muslims. Falling under the category of ‘evil eye jewelry’ since it is believed to ward off the evil eye, Hamsa pendants hold different symbolic meaning and importance for the Jews and Muslims.
