The evil eye symbol comes from ancient superstitious beliefs. Many people believe the evil eye will protect the wearer from harm. This belief and symbol has prevailed in Middle Eastern cultures for centuries and now it is becoming prevalent in Western cultures.
I have even seen many celebrities wearing this old school symbol. It is becoming a hot trend and a great souvenir for people to bring back from travelling the world. Moreover, I believe in the power of the evil eye. I have hung one in every room in my house and I always wear one for protection.
Although I realize some of you may not believe an evil eye can protect you, I believe you can still appreciate and enjoy wearing the evolving cool new designs. Check out these awesome finds for a nascent evil eye collection.
My first pick is a dainty bracelet. I love the design’s simplicity and the perfect blue eye, which is the essential feature for a great evil eye. The delicate chain adds femininity to your overall look and the chain will allow you to pair this evil eye with other bracelets. This is a classic must have.

Do you want to wear your evil eye closer to your eyes? If you answered yes to the prior question, then check out this flirty and nice design. This evil eye is a 14K necklace with a distinct eye and a small floating diamond on the chain. The diamond on the chain adds a little pizzazz to this otherwise overly plain necklace.

If you are still contemplating whether the evil eye symbol can actually protect the wearer, but you would also like to immediately embrace the evil eye as a hot fashion trend, then ease into the trend and purchase an evil eye that is easy on your bank account. This necklace is inexpensive and it looks great for the price. However, if you plan on wearing the eye daily, then you should know it might change colors with use. This is a great gift or something to complete an already existing gift.

Perhaps you are someone that would like to keep this superstition in the house and avoid it as a piece of jewelry. You can purchase a charm that you can hang off a nail or a sticker that looks like a floating eye for your window. There are arrays of styles to choose from. My top two picks are the horseshoe and the sticker (doesn’t look like one when on window).
