This delicate Cubic Zirconia evil eye necklace on a 9ct Gold chain is a timeless piece. This stylish 18" necklace not only has a powerful meaning, but it will also add some serious style to your everyday look.
Belief in the evil eye dates back to Classical antiquity. Peter Walcot's Envy and the Greeks (1978) listed more than one hundred works by authors mentioning the evil eye. Plutarch's 'scientific' explanation stated that the eyes were the chief, if not sole, source of the deadly rays that were supposed to spring up like poisoned darts from the inner recesses of a person possessing the evil eye. Pliny the Elder described the ability of certain African enchanters to have the "power of fascination with the eyes and can even kill those on whom they fix their gaze".
The evil eye was not feared with equal intensity in every corner of the Roman Empire. In Roman times, not only were individuals considered to possess the power of the evil eye but whole tribes, especially those of Pontus and Scythia, were believed to be transmitters of the evil eye.
Don’t get me wrong, I am partial to Diamonds. However, Cubic Zirconia is similar to Diamond in brilliance and clarity but is flawless. It is made in laboratories in large quantities and as such is much more affordable and in many cases, ethical... It is almost as hard as Diamond at 8.5 on the Mohs Scale in comparison to a Diamond's 10. It is not a Diamond though it has many Diamond-like qualities. Isn’t it time that we stop lusting after the Diamonds we will have "one day" and rock something just as beautiful until that day arrives? Why not?!
