Enter the universal symbol of protection; the ancient Turkish evil eye.
The ‘evil eye’ is believed to be a curse that happens when someone is envious of you, or wishing you harm. In turn, you receive an ‘evil glare’ from them, meaning bad luck will come your way. Well, not to fear, the traditional evil eye symbol is intended to reject and repel all negative energy and bad fortune. And Turkish people believe that this amulet protects its holder from the bad energies by absorbing them.
In Turkish, when something goes wrong for someone, they say that the “Nazar” touched him: “Nazar değdi”.
If a Nazar Boncuk breaks or cracks, it means that the talisman has performed its duties and absorbed a bad eye, so it must be replaced immediately.
