Evil Eye Accessories

I’ve always been partial to jewelry and accessories with hidden meanings. That being said, I’ve long been fascinated by the allure of the evil eye.

In many cultures, the evil eye is a curse believed to be caused by a malevolent glare cast when the person is unaware. In order to ward off the misfortune that can be caused by receiving the evil eye, good luck charms often known as Talismans were created to protect the wearer which also became known as evil eyes.

While I’ve never been to the parts of the Middle East or Europe where the iconic evil eyes are popular (it’s high on my bucket list), I have been brought back pieces featuring the blue evil eye from friends and family who have visited. Not only are they meant to bring protection and good luck, they also make incredibly fashionable statement accessories. Luckily, you don’t have to wait for a trip to Greece, Turkey, Albania, Egypt, Israel or Morocco to add a precious evil eye to your accessories collection or to give one as a gift. There are tons of great pieces you can order in preparation for that exotic vacation or just for fun. Here are some of my favs:

Carol Brodie Namesake Collection for HSN Preview

Earlier this week, I attended the preview of Carol Brodie’s Namesake Collection of opulent home and fashion accessories sold exclusively on HSN.  Since I aspire to live everyday as if it were an opulent affair, I love this classy collection designed to ward off haters.  When Carol Brodie thanked everyone for joining her at the Soho House for her collection’s preview, she explained the significance behind the evil eye present in most of her jewelry in home designs.  It’s meant to ward off the haters who want to bring you down when you’re on your way up.  Though you need your haters because if you don’t have them you’re not making enough of a dent in the universe, like Carol, I prefer the company of my love circle to my hate circle and I’m proud to call myself a member of this collection’s love circle.  I also must say that the evil eye cupcakes were a delicious touch and that her candles smell amazing.

Can’t get enough of warding off haters with Carol Brodie’s signature evil eye
