The Evil Eye, (or μάτι "mati" in Greek), is a superstition that says if someone envious of you glares at you behind your back either intentionally or unintentionally you will be cursed with bad fortune. 


This superstition originated in Greek antiquity, but can be found in central Asia, the Middle East, parts of North Africa, the Levant, Mediterranean Europe, some Celtic cultures, and even parts of Latin America. 


The belief was documented by ancient philosophers such as Plutarch who described it as a supernatural and extremely dangerous force. Since then  a great many talismans have been developed to block or return the Evil Eye’s Curse. In households it is common to see the blue eye hung by a string, but you may also know of the Hamsa, Hac or Nazar among others.


The eye is also commonly found in jewelry and from the many designers in Greece who make them - we've chosen Al'Oro for their unfailing high quality. Whether your are giving a quality gift meant for a lifetime, or simply want something beautiful to add to your collection, we know by offering Al'Oro we are bringing you to the right place.
