    An ancient symbol of protection, the evil eye is also strikingly modern. Ileana elongates its proportions to suggest the eye of a kitten. Handcrafted in oxidized 18K rose gold with brown, white and black diamonds. 18K rose gold chain measures 16”.

    “The evil eye is a symbol for protection from negative forces. When you wear an eye, it protects you from the energy. I also like the evil eye as an object. I like the way it looks.” - Ileana Makri


    On a summer night in the Greek islands, the skies are filled with millions of tiny stars. That sparkling display inspired Ileana Makri to design jewelry covered with the brilliance of tiny micropave diamonds. At home in Paris and New York as well as her native Athens, Ileana is a global nomad. Her sleek modern designs are often layered with meaning from the symbols and icons of many cultures, including evil eyes and snakes. A fashion favorite, her jewelry has graced the runway shows of London designer Marios Schwab and The Row by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. 

    Every jewelry box needs an evil eye charm. We love this striking and whimsical update of the talisman known for warding off evil spirits.
