What does the color in your evil eye jewelry and bead mean? In Turkey and surrounding countries, the most popular evil eye jewelry and bead charm color is blue. This is for two reasons.
The Evil Eye jewelry concept began in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cultures. These peoples were dark in hair and eyes. So when they were invaded by Western cultures, their eyes were unique and tended to be BLUE! To protect against these harmful people the charm should have the same power; blue is the most popular color even today.
The other reason for blue being the evil eye jewelry and bead color is that in these lands it is a dry part of the world, where water is precious. Water is needed to make things prosper and grow, and without it, things shrivel and die. The color blue reminds people of fresh, cool water, and is the counter balance to the potential to the removal of water from the Evil Eye.
