Evil Eye Jewelry: Necklaces, Bracelets, Earrings, and Rings
What is the Evil Eye?
The Evil Eye is an amulet, or talisman, of protection against evil forces. The belief in the Evil Eye goes back almost 3,000 years and can be traced to ancient Greece and Rome.
A belief in the evil eye is widespread on every continent and can be found in almost every culture in the world – Armenia, Assyrians, Bangladesh, Brazil, Egypt, Ethiopia, Greece, India, Afghanistan, Islam, Judaism, Latin America, Papua and New Guinea, Roma, Tibet, Turkey, and the United States. In Hebrew, it is known as “Ayin Ha’ra.” Read our extensive article, “What is the Evil Eye?” to learn more about the Evil Eye.
The Evil Eye in Jewelry
At Jewish Gift Place, evil eye jewelry is one of the most popular jewelry styles that we sell, and our most popular artist who designs evil eye jewelry is Michal Golan. An Israeli born, New York City based artist, Michal Golan draws her inspiration for her pieces from Victorian jewelry, and Byzantine and Middle Eastern art, with their generous use of gemstones and pearls. Michal Golan’s evil eye jewelry comes in three sizes with a variety of chains and embellishments to the evil eye. The designs range from simple, with one stone or crystal in the middle, to more decorative with a center stone with crystals along the perimeter of the evil eye jewelry. The evil eye jewelry is bold, beautiful and eye-catching!
Michal Golan Evil Eye Jewelry Collection
Michal Golan makes three styles of evil eye jewelry:
Some of the necklaces hang from one simple chain. Others hang from two or three decorative chains. The combination of silver and gold in the evil eye pendants are a beautiful combination of metals. The use of bright enamel and brilliantly colored Swarovski crystals makes it difficult to choose among the stunning evil eye necklaces and bracelets.
The most popular evil eye necklace in our collection is the Michal Golan Crystal and Gold Evil Eye Necklace. Ever since Melissa Gorga of The Real Housewives of New Jersey wore this necklace on TV, this evil eye necklace has been a consistent bestseller. This same evil eye necklace has also been worn by Christina Milian.
A popular purchase is the evil eye necklace with the matching evil eye bracelet or ring.
The most striking appeal of Michal Golan’s evil eye jewelry are the brilliant colors of the enamel used and the colorful stones, glass, and Swarovski crystals used to accent the pieces. From more subdued colors like silver and gold, to brighter colors such as red, pink, sapphire blue, and green.
