The Belief in the evil eye dates back almost 3,000 years to ancient Greece and Rome. It is one of the strongest symbolic images in the world. Wearing an evil eye as an amulet, is believed to provide protection against evil forces. The evil eye has symbolism in almost every country in the world, and in every religion.
The “Evil Eye” is thought of as a look given to inflict harm, suffering, or some form of bad luck on those that it is cast upon. The most popular method of escaping the evil-eye’s effects in many cultures is, by the use of evil-eye symbols and jewelry. Another powerful symbol of the evil-eye amulet, is the Hamsa, also known as the “Hand of Fatima.” The Hamsa is a hand shaped symbol, with the evil-eye on the palm.
These amulet types of jewelry are worn to ward off evil, and for protection against negative energy… currently are very fashionable and worn by all age groups!!
