Guardian is a brand-new design for Return of the Witch! Talismans depicting the human eye became heavily popularized during the Victorian era as a symbol of affection. Tiny portraits of a loved ones’ singular eye painted upon porcelain and set into jewelry was the pinnacle of aristocratic fashion. These sentimental baubles were colloquially known as the Lover’s Eye and were often surrounded by gemstones imbued with symbolism. For example, pearls may represent purity while red coral symbolizes protection. In a style paying homage to the traditional Lover’s Eye, the Guardian features highly detailed irises sandwiched between corneas of borosilicate glass and a sclera of high grade porcelain. Each eye is handmade in Italy by glass artisans. These glass eyeballs are incredible durable and very realistic– seeming to gaze into your soul! Similar to the Lover’s Eye of old, each Guardian has been combined with a unique gemstone energy saturated with symbolism.
Guardian with Black Onyx & Blue Eye has been paired with a black Onyx crystal. Black Onyx is a true stone in the chalcedony family, unlike obsidian which is a volcanic glass. According to ancient scripts, Queen Cleopatra wore a stone of pure black Onyx for its protective properties. During the mourning-wear era of the Victorian age, black Onyx became extremely popular for it’s glossy, enigmatic surface. To this day, black Onyx is still considered the supreme stone for protection, grounding, and strength. Continue reading to learn more about black Onyx and it’s metaphysical properties!
