In this article we will see the different types of Evil Eye Bracelet jewelry.
An evil eye or Turkish eye, also known as nazar, is a trinket with the shape of a flat drop where the figure of an eye is found to which protective forces are attributed, and which is widely used as a talisman or amulet against the evil eye and bad energies
Its original name, coming from the Turkish language, is nazar boncuğu, which means ‘trinket of the evil eye’.
It is very common in Turkey and Greece (hence it is also known as Greek eye) for protection against the negative influence of envy, traditionally known as ‘evil eye’. According to tradition, which goes back to the times of ancient Egypt and Babylon, the bad feelings of the human being are projected through the eyes, because these are the most expressive part of the body.
So it is usual to wear a Turkish eye as protection. People use them on the body, with necklaces, bracelets, tendrils or anklets, as well as place them in the workplace, in the car, cell phones or at the door of the house. It is also common to give a new Turkish baby eye as a measure of protection. Even today, a Turkish commercial aviation company carries the emblem of the eye in its ponytail, reminiscent of ancient times, when they were placed on boats.
The Turkish eye has the shape of a drop, is flat, and is usually made by hand with colored crystals. It is formed by a series of concentric circles that are usually, from the inside out, black or dark blue, light blue, white and dark blue. However, the colors may vary according to the intention with which the amulet is worn.
