925 Sterling Silver
The so-called evil eye is an amulet that is used to protect against the malevolent glare after which it is named. It is not only said to protect against evil-wishers in the material realm, but also the spiritual one. The blue glass beads that form the base of a traditional nazar boncuğu are part of an ancient history of jewellery, that stretches back to the 16th Century BC. For 3000 years the design has remained almost unaltered, even as the traditional bead makers were exiled from cities thanks to the smoke from their furnaces.
