Symbolic jewelry has been worn by royals and the likes since the ancient time to show their power and status. These days, Symbol Jewelry is often everyday jewelry you can leave on you at all times, such as rings and necklaces. Many and many symbols are used in jewelry. Here we’ll talk about just a few you like:

Evil Eye : Protection

You’ve seen this many times. The symbol and superstition of the evil eye is one of the strongest symbolic images in the world. Yet, despite the differences in the cultures which hold the evil eye myth, it retains largely the same meaning no matter where the story is told. In its most basic form, 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. It is a look which clearly states that one intends for something bad to happen to the object of one’s focus, either out of jealousy or pure malice. The superstition of the evil eye holds that the malicious look is powerful enough to bring about actual disaster for the unfortunate person that is the receiver of the glare. Cool, right?
