Evil eye necklace designs to stop the evil eye.designs create a protective shield against the evil eye. As a protective barrier, evil eye pendant or lucky eye necklace was created to stare back at the eyes of harm. It is believed to mirror back the blue of the evil eye and thus mystify it. Historically, these evil eye charms were worn to ward off the curse of the evil eye, which - in the Aegean Region and other areas where light-coloured eyes are relatively rare - was thought to be bestowed, intentionally or unintentionally, by people with green or blue eyes. This belief was and still is very predominate in the Mediterranean nations and in some parts of South America. The Greeks and Romans believed that people who were praised too much or admired beyond what they deserved were given the evil eye and would become so full of pride that they would bring their own downfall; so people began wearing sterling silver blue eye as a way to ward of negative looks.
