The Nazar Boncuk charm (or Turkish Eye Bead) is an "eye", often set on a blue background. It stares back at the world to ward off evil eye and keep you safe from harm. Since then the people have been attaching this Turkish evil eye bead to everything they wished to protect from the evil eyes. From the new-born babies to their horses or even to the doors of their homes.What do the colors mean? In Turkey or in Greece and surrounding countries, the most popular evil eye charm color is blue. Turkey is in a dry part of the world, where water is precious — with water things prosper and grow, and without it, things shrivel and die. The color blue reminds people of fresh, cool water. In the Jewish faith, the color red is often associated with luck and good fortune, so red is also a popular color.
