The Evil Eye
Some might call it superstition. Others simply think it's trendy, fun and a pretty cool fashion accessory. No matter your stance, The Evil Eye, however, has a very rich history.
Known by many names, the Nazar Boncugu is a legacy of the Turkish Ottoman Empire, and has had a place in various cultures for thousands of years. The Nazar (amulet) acts as protection against The Evil Eye - those negative emotions that arise from fear, hatred and envy.
Throughout the Mediterranean and Middle East, many people believe envious gazes or high praise from others can bring you bad luck. The people who praise you probably mean you no harm, but still, evil spirits can piggy back in on their words or looks.
The Evil Eye stares back at the world to ward off the evil spirits and keep you safe from harm.
