What is the Meanings of Evil Eye Colors

What do colors represent?
Meanings of colors of eyes


We all know the traditional blue color is for luck.  Well, if you didn’t, it is for luck.

It’s the other colors that are so intriguing.  When you see images or clothing with different colored eyes on them, their symbolic representation is alluring.

Now, with all different types of harmful stuff out there, one can easily realize why they need different types of luck, or good fortune.

Did you know:

There are actually three kinds of evil eyes:

The first are unconscious evil eyes. These harm people and things, without intending to.

The second type intends to harm.

The third one is unseen, hidden evil which is the scariest.


The third one is the scariest, have to agree.  No wonder we tend to put up an evil eye charm in our homes, in our car, and even wear them as jewelry.

Too Many Bracelets?


Ok, so the style nowadays is bracelets. Bracelets stacked, piled on high, jingling and jangling on your wrist!

I have to admit I love the sound of the clanking and movement on my arm as my bracelets hit against one another making a soft melody of sorts. 

I call it jewelry music to my ears.

This image is of stainless steel cable bracelets set in sterling silver with diamonds.

The nice thing about the steel metal is that is doesn’t tarnish as silver does.

Our “evil eye” jewelry is extremely popular. Some of the feedback we enjoy receiving is that our designs offer ancient talisman in modern, feminine, cool, hip, even glamorous and fabulous form. Basically, so you don’t feel like you’re wearing a museum relic—not that there’s anything wrong with antiquities, by the way. 

People from Israel, Greece, Sicily, Italy, Turkey, North Africa and other areas around the Mediterranean are usually familiar with this idea of the “eye”—it’s part of the culture and has been for thousands of years. The eye (usually blue) gazes out over doorways, dangles from the rear-view mirrors of taxicabs, and is carefully pinned inside baby-clothes. It even hangs around the necks of hard-working donkeys!

But maybe the concept loses a bit in translation. The use of the word “evil” puts some people off.

Blue Diamond and Gold Evil Eye

“Evil” sounds really aggressive, but folkloric scholars (and yes, there are such people) generally share the opinion that the evil eye is generally perceived as passive. Foremost among these scholars was Dr. Alan Dundes, who worked and taught at the University of Berkeley.

Dr. Dundes’ exhaustive and fascinating studies include an essay called “The Wet and the Dry: The Evil Eye.” Here, he discusses the idea that the evil eye is usually associated with envy, jealousy, or longing. The classic example: a childless woman, for instance, may gaze with yearning at a baby, and this results in the child being affected by the evil eye. The woman isn’t really “evil” in the contemporary sense of the word.

As for the title of Dr. Dundes’ essay, he associates traditional affliction by the evil eye with becoming parched, dried-out, and drought, true to the Middle Eastern origins of the symbol, where fresh water may be more precious than rubies and pearls.“Google” him for a really fascinating read.
