The Meaning of the Evil Eye
You’ve probably come across the Evil Eye symbol more than once in your life, probably without realizing it. Evil Eyes are found everywhere around us - in jewelry, home decor and even art - they mostly come in blue and green colors in the shape of eyes. Nevertheless, the designs have changed over the years. It has become more and more common to see evil eyes of various colors and eye shapes.
The Evil Eye is a malicious stare that can cause bad luck from the person that receives it. The jewelry made in the shape of the evil eye is meant to protect you from such evil looks, and they represent amulets that aim to protect you against these energies that usually come from envy. Around the 6th century B.C., the first evil eyes appeared on drinking vessels. Plato, Hesiod, and Plutarch all described how the evil eye worked, describing it as a curse given to someone when they were unaware and even saying that it could be the source of deadly rays.
Despite appearing differently in some cultures, it keeps its meaning. Evil eyes are harmful expressions that you can be protected from.
