Evil eye jewellery is a growing trend that shows no signs of sleeping, but if you look back in time, it was once far from a fashion piece. For many cultures like Persian, Arab, Greek, and Armenian, among many others, the evil eye represented a way to protect oneself from jealous stares. Today’s evil eye jewellery can serve as both a decorative item and a way to cast off those mean muggers.
Most recently, a very stylish Milan Fashion Week attendee took the trend to new heights by rocking a single evil eye earring en route to the shows.
The most popular ways that the evil eye is worn is either around the neck as a pendant necklace, usually encrusted with diamonds or rhinestones, or as a charm bracelet. Evil eye stud earrings are also quite prevalent. Designers such as Thomas Sabo, Rachel Roy, and Jennifer Meyer have taken the look to new heights with totally contemporary takes on the evil eye charms.
A versatile way to get in on the evil eye trend is to buy an evil eye charm, then hook it into a necklace or a bracelet of your choice. Shop some below:
