The Origins of the Evil Eye
All throughout the history of human life, mankind has looked to the power of talismans to defy malevolent forces of evil. Wearing evil eye beads as talismans against evil is a practice that goes back for millennia, with the earliest form of evil eye beads being blue glass bead-style amulets that were worn in Turkey and featured a smiling face against a background of blue color—much the same as many of the evil eye beaded jewelry designs of today.
There are three types of evil eye. The unconscious evil eye is the first of these. The intent of this type of evil eye is the harm of people, even without intentional harm. Second is the evil eye that looks to harm others intentionally, and third is the hidden evil eye—it is unseen but present in many instances—and can be warded off with the wearing of evil eye beads.
How Does Evil Eye Jewelry Work to Ward Off Evil Eye?
The premise of evil eye jewelry goes back to Egyptian times. It is thought that when the so-called sun god Horus opens his eyes, the world becomes a positive place. When he closes it, it becomes dark and malevolent. The bead is used to reflect the evil eye back upon itself. The most effective evil eye beads are those that resemble an eye. Some people swear by the blue color in the evil eye bead as being the most effective in protecting the wearer of the evil eye jewelry from the forces of evil and the negative effects of the evil eye. The symbolic act of wearing the evil eye jewelry can keep the evil eye at bay.
What is the Hamsa Hand?
Many examples of the best evil eye jewelry feature the evil eye symbol or beads inside the Hamsa hand. This hand-shaped talisman or amulet also works to ward off the evil eye. The hand is symbolic of the Hand of Miriam in Jewish culture. This design generally consists of the hand with five fingers spread, holding the evil eye. Although generally worn as a pendant on a necklace or chain, the Hamsa Hand or Hand or Miriam jewelry can also be found in bracelet or ring form.
