This genuine Ancient Egyptian amulet has been
set in a modern 18 karat gold pendant.
The Ancient Egyptians believed the wedjat eye
was the most powerful protection against evil.
Ever-vigilant against bad luck and misfortune,
the symbolic eye of the god Horus was worn by
king and peasant alike. Though the eye was
sometimes fashioned in gold and precious
stones, it was thought to be at its most powerful
when colored blue. The tradition of blue amulets
guarding against harm is a very ancient one.
Throughout the Mediterranean world today, one
sees beads and talismans of bright blue, which
are meant to avert the evil eye of bad luck. In
Egypt, peasants dip the palm of their hands in
blue paint and press their palms against the
sides of their houses. When the Egyptian Empire
was at its glorious height, this faience eye of the
god Horus was worn by some long-forgotten
person to bring good fortune and luck. Much has
changed in the world since then, but the power
of this talisman remains strong and benevolent
as always. Whoever wears it today in its golden
frame will surely benefit from its ancient magic
