The “Evil Eye” concept dates back to Ancient Egypt and has been a part of Ancient Greek, Roman, Hittite, and Jewish cultures. The belief continues today in Turkey, Greece, Israel, Egypt, and other Mediterranean cultures. According to tradition, the unintentionally envious or jealous look of those around us can bring harm or misfortune to you. To ward off the “Evil Eye,” one must display a blue eye to protect you and bring luck. The blue eye is said to ward off evil, defend against it, and bring good luck and fortune.
Today, the most common form of the blue eye is glass, used to decorate everything from porcelain plates to jewelry and displayed in homes, offices, and cars.
