Meghan Markle loves her evil eye necklace - 7 of our favourites for the Lunar New Year

An evil eye necklace is said to protect its wearer from negative vibes

Meghan Markle is a big fan of symbolic jewellery, and her evil eye necklace caught royal fans attention when she debuted the pendant that is said to "protect its wearer from negative vibes."

Meghan first wore the Edge of Ember evil eye necklace during a virtual chat with patron charity Smart Works in April 2020, and fans immediately put the pretty pendant in high demand - causing it to sell out.
