Eye talismans have been worn worldwide for more than 5,000 years. Eyes in jewelry and artwork are symbols of wisdom, enlightenment, omniscience, and protection.
Evil Eye talismans are believed to protect the wearer from the "evil eye" -- harm transmitted by someone who gazes malevolently at you or your family. A nazar (or nazur) is an eye-shaped or round evil eye amulet, often made of cobalt blue glass with black dot in a white center, sometimes with an additional iris of light blue.
The Eye of Providence (or all-seeing eye of God) represents Divine Providence, or the eye of God watching over mankind. When displayed on coats of arms and official seals, it can be interpreted as Providence approving the government's or organization's ideals and undertakings.
The Eye of Horus, an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health, symbolizes sacrifice, healing, restoration, and protection.
