Evil eye pendant in silver to ward off the evil eye.The evil eye is a look that is believed by many cultures to be able to cause injury or bad luck for the person at whom it is directed for reasons of envy or dislike. The evil eye can be cast on a person to make him sick or cause harm to the person just by looking at him with envy or jealousy. This belief was and still is very predominate in the Mediterranean nations and in some parts of South America. With the belief came amulets and charms to protect the wearer against the evil eye. One of the most popular amulets is the blue glass eye charm. However, ironically the Greeks believe that it is blue eyed-people who are considered most likely to cast the evil eye.
