So, you've decided to wear an evil eye, or an all-watchful eye bracelet every day.
You're wondering how to style it, so we have a few tips that you might find very useful. The most important is to start with the basic question, "are you planning on leaving it on 24/7?"
If you don't want to worry about wearing the evil eye bracelet in the shower, or while washing your hands or doing the dishes, then you need to make sure of two simple things:
1. Is the bracelet easy to put on and take off.
2. What is the metal used in the bracelet.
If the bracelet is hard to take on and off yourself then you have two choices: a) put it on and leave it on or b) wear it only when someone is there to help you clasp it.
That is why an elastic bracelet is fantastic. It is designed to roll over your wrist, and left where it is. No tugging, no clasping, it is worry-free. And the elastic is not the kind you wear on your clothing, this is a special jewelry grade elastic that never stretches out and is very, very sturdy.
Next is the metal.
This may seem a strange thing to bring up, but it is very important. If you chose a brass metal you are best to never wear the bracelet in the water, it just isn't made for getting wet. The metal becomes green and so does your arm. The same with base metal, it is cheap for a reason. Just take it off when you are swimming, showering, washing your hands. And never spray perfume or hairspray on your metal jewelry-- just don't!
However, sterling silver and 14k gold are perfect for wearing every single day. They don't chip, flake, turn green, or rust. The bracelets don't rot or fall apart either.

What is a hamsa hand amulet?
Most commonly, it is just known as a hamsa or spelled as chamsa, even khamsa.
There are many interpretations of these particular usages.
The hand is often depicted with an eye in the center of its open palm, presumably to ward off negative energies, including the gaze of envy.
