Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but we can all agree that a sunny and positive disposition is universally appealing. And pretty much all cultures around the world have their own customs — stepped in both ancient and religious beliefs — for warding off negative thoughts and attracting good luck in their lives. The ‘third eye’ has become the symbol of hidden evil, and the blue Evil Eye Bead, which traces back over 3,000 years ago to Anatolia, is believed to offer protection from those who may want to cause harm to its wearer. You can still pick up the traditional blue glass evil eye bead amulets or nazar beads from markets in Turkey and in Mediterranean countries, but its style has served as inspiration for jewellery designers around the globe. Meaning you can carry around those same sentiments of safety and luck — for date night or that big meeting — to the beautiful pieces you wear everyday. So in that spirit, we rounded up the best eye-catching jewels — for all budgets — to bring nothing but good vibes your way.
