What does the color mean? Does it have a symbolic meaning?
Silver has a very specific meaning both emotionally and spiritually.
Think of a mirror, it is 99.9% of the time the color silver, right?
Silver is believed to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
It's a color of strength, of clarity, and focus. The true color of purity, so that we may be pure to ourselves and see our strengths and what we need to improve upon.
It's a soothing and calming color as well, designed to reset your equilibrium and stability. It reinstates your comforting qualities such as hope, unconditional love, meditation, mystic visions, tenderness, kindness, sensitivities, and psychic abilities.
The color is said to draw the negative energy out of your body, replacing it with positive energy instead, as it pulls from the energy of the earth and the moon.
Perhaps that is why in Greek mythology, silver is the color and gemstone of Artemis, the Greek goddess for she illuminates those places that terrify us and lends us her strength to bring us safely through our fears.
Artemis is known for being "courageous, intuitive and skillful, she was the protector of all those who were vulnerable, especially women and children."
Silver is a refined and distinguished color, symbolizing wealth and success and better known as a noble metal.
Its use in jewelry, sculptures, and for monetary value has it associated with wealth. Thus the color also represents grace, sophistication, elegance, and glamor.
What qualities does the person who loves silver possess? And to whom should you possibly buy a silver colored amulet or a piece of jewelry?
First of all, silver looks lovely as jewelry on anyone-- let's just answer that question right away.

Can find it hard to make good decisions and usually end up sitting on the fence.
Open to trying new things and new opportunities that are presented to them.
Mild, gentle, kind and gracious
Don’t allow their hearts to take over in romantic matters.
Their greatest need is to find spiritual fulfilment and deep meaning in their lives.
Introspective, looking into their own selves, and can be preoccupied with their own world.
Silver is also a color believed to destroy evil.
This association with the desctruction of evil and the color silver actually came about in Europe, with the association of the color metal being silver. A sword and a bullet are both created from silver, or metal (which is silver). It was a very strong belief that the only weapon that could destroy werewolves, monsters and witches was a silver bullet.
Silver = destruction of evil.
This isn't a blog about witches and harm, but it is about keeping any evil far-far-far away. And that is just what an evil eye amulet does, it keeps harm at a distance.

So, as you can see the silver frame combined with the evil eye amulet is the perfect combination for destroying any evil that should even attempt to come near you.
This could also pose the question of where you should place an evil eye amulet with the color silver on its rim?
While there are no set-in-stone-rules about the placement of a Nazar evil eye, also called a mal de ojo, placing it in your home is a lovely idea. You could put in a work or living area, a bedroom or an entry way. Also, hanging it outside of your home is thought of as keeping any ill-will away, or rather, restricting it from coming into the home. Basically leaving it outside, and sending it back to the sender.

So the next time you have a special gift to buy, think about the meaning of the color silver. And who has a "silver personality" to gift the perfect gift.
