Gold and Sapphire Evil Eye Ring
A chunky,18-carat gold dome ring with an oval facetted sapphire (app. 1.72 carats) flush set in a gold ‘eye’ representing the evil eye, France.
The evil eye is a gaze or stare believed to bring bad luck to the person to whom it is directed. It is entwined with sight, the most fascinating of the five senses and therefore associated with magic. Pregnant women and children, especially young boys, were often accused of harbouring malignant spirits. From early times, men tried to protect themselves from the supernatural with apotropaic objects and amulets. Wearing a jewel with the evil eye symbol on it provides the wearer protection against it.
