Senior Digital Editor

You've likely spotted evil eye jewelry on the likes of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Rihanna, Nicole Richie and countless other members of the Young Hollywood set—and as it happens, this beautiful cultural symbol has a rich and storied history. Worn for centuries throughout the Middle East as a method of warding off evil spirits, bad luck and illness, eye-shaped pendants and beads (known as nazars in Turkey, where many believe they originated) are still popular talismans today.

Of course, current takes on this age-old good luck charm are decidedly flashier and more fashion-forward than their ancient counterparts, and look great worn solo or stacked. Click through to shop some of our current favorite evil eye-adorned necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings—because let's be honest, who couldn't use a little extra luck these days?
