Item details

The Eye of Saint Lucia is the operculum of a shell called 'Mediterranean Rough Turbo'. This operculum's name comes from the legend of martyr Saint Lucia. It's a gift of nature and a sign of belonging and recognition for the people who come from the sea is considered a sign of good luck.

Victorians incorporated these eerie shells in brooches, rings, bracelets and necklaces. The more operculum shells used, the more potent the piece of jewelry's power against evil was believed to be.

The eye of Saint Lucia is one of perhaps the most popular amulets against the evil eye. Associating it with the power of "good eye" and protection that is capable of blocking any other "real hatred" (mal'occhio). This shell is found only in the Mediterranean sea!!!

For this reason and for its undeniable charm color, has found use in jewelry for making delicious "marine jewels" such as pendants, rings, cufflinks and brooches.

Those ones are picked up on our golden beaches of Martigue and Cote d'Azur.
Unpolished, unglazed, completely natural.
