Solemn Shield

Ring of gold, silver, diamonds, and calligraphy in bone surrounded by mosaic with thulite-diamond tesserae.

For almost six thousand years, in Mesopotamia, the Eastern Mediterranean, the Arabian Peninsula and India, there has been a belief that admiring something with a touch of envy will hurt that person or thing. In order to protect them, in some cultures, the attention of a wandering eye would be drawn to a blue bead. In other cultures, prayer was sufficient to ward off evil. Sevan Bıçakçı's rings warn off evil eyes with both color and prayer. Some have the simplest prayers in warm tones of pink, saying, "May Allah protect you from the evil eye."
