It is said that ‘the eye is the window to the soul’. With a history dating back to ancient civilisations, the Evil Eye charm has traditionally been adopted by many cultures as a symbol of protection. This hypnotic symbol has transcended cultures and continents to become a jewellery trend without borders.
Interestingly, The Olivia vintage ring features a signet-like face. Signet rings were one of the most widely used ornaments in medieval Europe. It was attributed symbolic and religious value, as well as ever greater importance as a talisman, good omen, and sign of office.
