The History of the Evil Eye
Early evidence of the evil eye superstition dates back to early Greek and Roman times where people believed that the evil eye was an expression of pain, harm, and misfortune. It was said that anyone who was praised more than they truly deserved was at a greater risk of misfortune or harm falling upon them.
As a way to ward off these evil spirits and bad omens, the evil eye talisman was created. This talisman is most likely a symbol that you have seen in the past, especially if you have ever spent any time in Greece. Usually designed on a glass bead, the talisman features a dark blue outer circle surrounding a white circle, a light blue circle, and a smaller dark blue circle, giving the talisman the appearance of an eye. This talisman is said to ward off negativity and protect those who wear it. You may see this talisman made into jewelry, keychains, housewares like door handles, or even on a box of lovely Eternity® Roses.
When to Gift the Evil Eye Talisman
The evil eye talisman depicted on the Evil Eye Box and Evil Eye Eternity® Rose arrangements is used to bring good luck, positive energy, and healing, therefore it is a great gift for anyone in your life who may need a little extra luck on their side.
