Now more than ever, people are turning to ways to express themselves through jewelry, and even protect themselves with lucky charms and talismans.

Some of these motifs and materials traditionally used for warding off evil have entered modern-day fashion as enduring trends, and we’ve collected a list of protective jewelry ideas for you below.

5 Types of Protective Jewelry

  1. Hamsa: This hand-shaped image comes from several Middle Eastern cultures, making it an ancient protective symbol. While its exact origins are still up for debate, it has been used for centuries to ward off evil, and is commonly used in clothing, home decor, and jewelry. Given its history, it seems to be an excellent choice for a new talisman!

  2. Evil Eye: It’s been long believed that the evil eye is a curse that can be placed on someone to cause them misfortune. Out of this belief, the eye design became popular as it supposedly warded off the evil eye. Nowadays, the design is extremely common in jewelry.

  3. Silver: Silver has been used for thousands of years due to its perceived purity and ability to detect poison. It’s also well-known for its ability to “kill” werewolves, vampires, and other ghoulish things in horror fiction. In addition to its mythological status, silver jewelry is typically hypoallergenic, making it an excellent choice for people who have jewelry allergies.

  4. Turquoise: This sky-blue stone was considered sacred by several cultures, including Native Americans, Egyptians, and Aztecs. According to legend, it changes color depending on the wearer’s health and protects them from evil forces. While the color change has been proved to be a result of skin acidity and exposure to light, it remains a very popular choice for jewelry thanks to its bright appearance and affordability.

Different shades and patterns originate from various sources all over the world, and it’s been used by ancient civilizations for carvings and jewelry for millennia. Its unique variations all have their own properties, and as a whole agate is considered a healing stone.
