Item of the Day

Who doesn’t need a little talisman now and then? Spiritual and protective charms are nothing new—in fact, they’ve been setting jewelry trends literally for thousands of years. But we love this incarnation (or shall we say, reincarnation?) from Charmed Design.

The company lets wearers choose their charms and string them on these 35- and 42-inch colorful hand-painted silk ribbons. Just wrap them around your wrist, or neck, and consider yourself protected.

This charm assortment features a tree of life, a hamsa, and a Turkish glass evil eye. The focal charm, the tree of life, is beautifully detailed and will be one of your favorites! According to Charmed Design, the tree of life symbolizes wisdom, protection, strength, bounty, beauty and redemption. The hamsa hand offers protection and creates positive energy, happiness, prosperity and good health. The evil eye bead is believed to provide protection from the envious eyes of others and ensure physical well-being . It gives protection and brings luck to all who wear it.

Retail: $34.
