Third Eye Jewellery Designs: Have You Opened Your Third Eye Yet?
School textbooks taught us that we have two eyes, a nose, and a mouth. What then is the third eye? Is it a physical anomaly? No! The third eye refers to a mystical concept that allows us to see beyond our immediate visible surroundings. This is considered to be an extension of our subconscious perception. To the followers of Hinduism, however, the third eye is not an alien concept. Lord Shiva is known for his Third Eye or the Eye of Wisdom. His third eye appears on his forehead above and between the two eyes. Unlike normal human eyes, this third eye is also usually denoted as a vertical eye. Many Hindus who believe in the power of Shiva’s third eye choose to wear third eye jewellery designs as a constant reminder of their faith. These jewellery designs usually take the form of pendants that can be worn on a slim gold chain or a bracelet.
Third Eye Jewellery Designs that Symbolises Power
There are many legends associated with Shiva’s third eye. One such legend says that after Sati’s death, Lord Shiva went into a state of deep meditation. At the same time, Sati was reborn as Parvati. When all the efforts of the Gods failed to bring Lord Shiva out of his trance, Kama, the God of Love was assigned the task of waking up Shiva. When Kama shot Lord Shiva with his arrow, Lord’s Shiva’s third eye opened and burnt Kama to ashes. The Third Eye Pendant with a marquise-cut ruby is representative of the immense power of the third eye.
Many of the designs in this collection feature marquise-cut rubies. Wondering why? Well, what if we tell you that the marquise-cut is also known as the eye-shaped cut? Bingo! What better way of expressing the third eye than with an eye-shaped stone? This unique cut, together with the fire and brilliance of rubies, give these designs a spectacularly divine look and feel.

The third eye isn’t the only symbol associated with Shiva. Other symbols include the trident, the Nandi Bull, the crescent moon, rudraksha beads and the snake.
