The Origin of the Evil Eye | Precious Jewels by Ekan

The Origin of the Evil Eye | Precious Jewels by Ekan - Dracakis Jewellers

Many weird and wonderful cultures, myths and traditions exist in the world. One of the most popular ones surrounds the legend of the evil eye.

It is highly likely that you've encountered the evil eye at some point in your life - whether it be in paintings, stories, jewellery or cultures. But what is the meaning behind the evil eye?

The evil eye is a curse from Greek culture that has been passed through many decades and still exists today. It states that when someone is envious of you, they'll have the power to give you an 'evil glare' and send bad luck your way.

Due to this belief, protection from the evil eye is something that many people actively sought after. This is why, in today's times, people use evil eye jewellery as a symbol of protection against bad luck.

According to a folklorist called John Roberts, about 40% of the world's cultures believe in some form of the evil eye. There is mention of the evil eye in Roman and Greek texts, as well as the Quran and Bible. In fact, the evil eye curse has a long history as far back as 3,000BC.

Wearing the evil eye symbol is believed to be enough to protect yourself against the evil eye. This is usually done by wearing evil eye jewellery, which has grown to be a huge fashion statement in both believers and non-believers.

Typically, when in jewellery, the evil eye is blue and white. However, different colours are used for other meanings. For example, an orange colour can represent protection as well as happiness, motivation, creativity, and playfulness. Dark blue is for karma and fate protection, while light blue is for general protection. Dark green is for happiness, red for courage, brown for connection with nature, and yellow for health. Grey is for protection against sorrow, white for focus, and pink for the protection of friendships.
