To be honest, evil eye jewelry isn't all that unusual, but it is rare to find a piece so sleekly elegant as this garnet eye ring. Its smooth lines and contemporary styling breathe new life into an old favorite. Whether or not you buy into its reputation for protection, this is one ring you'll want to have with you all the time. And let's face it, a little bit of good luck would certainly come in handy!
Slim and stylish, this garnet ring is an excellent choice for wearing as a stack ring. It can be worn and enjoyed on its own, of course. But when it comes to silver rings, I think it's safe to say: the more the merrier!
The Garnet Eye Ring is made of sterling silver, set with a genuine garnet cabochon. The ring is approximately 1/4" across at its widest point. This ring is available in sizes 4-11, whole sizes only.
What is the "evil eye"? Belief in the evil eye is nearly universal. You can find it in cultures around the globe, dating as far back as ancient Greek and Roman times. The evil eye was a sharp glance or glare, from a malicious or jealous person, which could bring injury and loss to the one at which it was directed. The antidote for such a supernatural attack was to wear a piece of jewelry in the shape of a human eye. Such a talisman was said to protect the wearer from harm, and to bring good fortune.
How should I care for my garnet jewelry? Garnet is actually fairly trouble-free when used in jewelry. It is a relatively tough stone, and not likely to be damaged by day to day wear. If it gets dirty, simply wash it with warm soapy water. Use a soft cloth to polish the silver, and you're good to go!
