Evil Eye

Evil Eye Bracelet Care: What to Do If It Gets Wet (Tips)

Updated on:

Written by: Tina Caro

If you have an evil eye bracelet, you might want to know more about it. Not only is it a beautiful piece of jewelry, but it’s also a great amulet for protection.

You need to know a few things to let it work properly and use it at its best.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

To preserve the power and energy of your evil eye bracelet, avoid getting it wet as it can lead to blackening and deterioration due to oxidation.

Store it in a cool, dry place, away from direct contact with water, alcohol-based products, and excessive moisture to ensure its longevity and effectiveness as a protective amulet.

What happens if your evil eye bracelet gets wet?

You might notice that if your evil bracelet gets wet, one of the first things going on is blackening.

The evil eye bracelet changes color and might start deteriorating if you expose it on a daily basis to water. The main thing that might happen is oxidation. The chemical process that leads to oxidation can be caused simply by contact with the air, and therefore with the oxygen it contains.

Alternatively, oxidation can be determined by the metal exposed to water (water also contains oxygen) or to acidic substances that corrode it, for example, cosmetic creams or skin perspiration.

In short, oxidation occurs because the irresistible call of oxygen seduces the electrons of the metal: a true chemical betrayal.

From this, you might have noticed that it’s not only direct contact with water that causes deterioration and damage, but also other factors like sweat, body lotions, and more that can potentially harm your evil eye bracelet.

If your evil eye bracelet gets wet, you can ruin it or neutralize its powers and attract more bad luck.

Take it off if you take a shower, use water to clean your space, or go swimming to prevent damaging your bracelet and losing its power.

Understanding the Materials

Fortunately, not all jewelry tarnishes. As all women know, if you are given or buy a gold jewel, you can rest assured: it will not blacken (except in rare cases when it is alloyed with metals that oxidize).

In addition to gold, some metals are not called noble by chance, which do not blacken, such as platinum, ruthenium, rhodium, and palladium.

Other metals, which are not classified as noble, resist oxidation and are used in jewelry, such as titanium and aluminum. Finally, there are also metals invented by man, i.e., alloys of different materials, which are not sensitive to oxygen, such as stainless steel and brass.

Preventive Measures

If you want to wear an evil eye bracelet, letting its energy and power lead your life and help you attract and manifest positivity and protection, there are a few preventive measures you can follow:

Store it in canvas bags

Grouping all your trinkets in a messy way in a drawer makes their deterioration easier, first of all, because some metals, such as silver, tend to oxidize when exposed to air, then because their continuous rubbing can cause unsightly scratches.

So keep your jewelry in separate compartments or containers. Also, keep in mind that pearls and opals should be placed in fabric bags and never in plastic, as they need to breathe.

Watch out for perfume

Avoid your evil eye bracelet coming into direct contact with perfume or other alcohol-based products; these substances can, in fact, wear down both gold and silver.

Get into the habit of wearing your jewelry once you have finished your make-up and hairstyle so as not to expose them to any aggressive products.

Avoid direct water contact

Try to avoid getting your evil eye bracelet wet as much as possible. In fact, water causes rust and, over time, makes metals duller. So simple gestures, such as washing your hands, must be done with extreme care, especially if you wear silver.

Also, never go swimming, forgetting rings, necklaces, and various bracelets on you; the chlorine present in swimming pools and hot tubs could damage both stones and metals, including gold.

Clean with a soft cloth

Remember to clean your pieces of jewelry every time they have been worn to prevent skin grease or other external substances with which we come into contact from accumulating on them.

Use a soft cotton cloth to gently rub your precious items, avoiding too much handling with bare hands once the process is finished.

Never wear it during sporting activities

Never wear your evil eye bracelet during a sports workout; water and sweat are highly harmful to them; therefore, they could cause immediate wear. So remember to remove all jewels before any physical exercise.

Keep them away from the bathroom

Never store any piece of jewelry in the bathroom, especially if they are silver, as the humidity of this place can damage your bracelet.

Store it in a cool, dark place

It is essential that your jewelry is normally stored in a cool, dry, dark place as humidity and sunlight can wear away both the more precious metals and the costume jewelry. So opt for a lined jewelry box or for a wardrobe or drawer that you usually keep tightly closed.

Conclusion

When you are about to buy an evil eye bracelet, you are not simply buying a souvenir or a glass jewel. You are buying an item with a 5,000-year history that has existed since the earliest civilizations.

The Evil Eye is the continuation of a tradition as old as human history itself.

The Evil Eye has crossed distant lands and countries, and has united culturally and geographically different peoples. You are buying a piece of history and culture, so take care of it to let it accomplish its mission of protection.
