This gorgeous pendant shape is said to protect from the “evil eye” of others. The concept of “evil eye” - misfortune and malevolent spirits brought about by others’ envy and dislike - is prevalent in the Mediterranean region but its meaning and this eye-shaped talisman is now well known around the world.
With its glamorous jewelry design, the Gisela pendant is a modern take on the traditional protective amulet, made with the classic almond eye-shape but embellished with shining gold, glinting diamonds and an additional semi-precious stone on the side, filled with its own meaning.
Wearing labradorite is said to be helpful during times of change - it imparts strength and perseverance just as it balances and protects.

Authentic upcycled diamond mosaics are hand-set through centuries-old Indian techniques, which has withstood the test of time. Further tested to be nickel-free, cadmium-free, lead-free, all our pieces are created with sterling silver throughout, and are hypoallergenic. 18K gold is used to coat pieces in the vermeil technique, to give some of our pieces a deep golden hue.
WHAT IS VERMEIL?
Vermeil is a type of gold-finish that is composed of a thick layer of gold over solid sterling silver. Our gold vermeil is 18 karats.
The thickness of the gold portion is what really sets vermeil jewelry apart from gold plated pieces. The thickness of the gold portion must be a hefty 2.5 microns.
Vermeil pieces must have a sterling silver base (instead of brass or cheaper metals) and are a great way to start upgrading from costume pieces (made of cheaper metal alloys and brass) to real and fine jewelry.
Our vermeil jewelry is nickel-free and hypoallergenic, and only sold in limited quantities, making each purchase an investment in your individual style.
