We have a new Gem Hunt obsession: evil eye rings. Whether they are the literal translation of the evil eye, or an art deco nod or a modern upgrade we want them all! What is the evil eye and why should we care? The evil eye is a curse that is cast by a malevolent glare when some is unaware and the evil eye is a symbol to ward off said curse. These talismans are quite popular in the Mediterranean and Asia but the concept has made it into our modern day culture. With everything going on in the world we are happy to arm ourselves with any talismans we need to ensure smooth sailing. So we picked out a few of our favorite evil eye rings for help.
One: Victor Barbone Elena Ring, an art deco vintage engagement ring circa 1920. With an old european cut diamond weighing in at 1.42 carats ($8,000).
Two: Luna Skye diamond and moonstone evil eye ring, a modern upgrade to the evil eye concept that you can wear anywhere. Featuring 14k gold and a moonstone in the center. Bonus moonstones are known for bringing you good fortune ($1,500).
Three: Anne Sisteron mother of pearl and diamond evil eye ring, a great everyday way to incorporate the evil eye into your jewelry wardrobe. Featuring the beautiful combination of mother pearl, diamonds and rose gold this ring is a stunner ($1,085).
