Collection: Turkish Evil Eye: the Jewelry of Protection

The Turkish believe that the blue eye will keep bad energy away. In Turkish culture, the evil eye beads, known as "Nazar Boncuk," can commonly be seen worn as bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and other types of wearable jewelry by adults, children, and even infants. This protective symbol has over 5,000 years of history and has become a globally popular design motif incorporated into jewelry worldwide.

In Turkish folklore, the evil eye is a malevolent glare believed to be given by someone that can cause harm, illness, or even death to the recipient through jealousy or envy. As a result, the Turks created the Nazar Boncuk charm to ward off evil spirits and provide safety. Originally, Nazar Boncuk charms were crafted from beautiful blue glass and decorated with certain colors following the standard pattern of blue, white, yellow, and black. In modern times, Turkish evil eye jewelry often showcases diverse designs and may utilize different materials while still prominently featuring the traditional blue and white colors of protection.
