Chances are you’ve seen this symbol before, but if you’re still unsure of its origin or meaning, we’re here to help!
In the simplest terms, giving someone the “evil eye” is equivalent to a dirty look. You do this if you have dislike, distain or other ill will towards an individual or entity, in various circumstances. In many ancient cultures, wearing an evil eye amulet or charm was said to ward off these evil spirits, and serve as a protector. Years later, it’s become a major accessory trend, still symbolizing the repelling of negativity.
Because the evil eye’s meaning translates similarly across so many belief systems, it’s no wonder it’s become such a widespread and commonly worn piece. We’ve seen it in a multitude of different forms, ranging from necklaces, bracelets and rings to even anklets.
