The evil eye is a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they are unaware. Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune or injury.
Charms such as these are created to protect against the evil eye, and are also frequently called "evil eyes". Hanging an evil eye charm on your front door, in the entrance of your home, or near a window in your home is a great way to protect against the evil eye glare.
