✻Set of 2 Worry Beads - Komboloi 

Komboloi derives from the Greek words kombos which means “knot” and leo which means “say” as in “in every knot I say a prayer“. Its origins date back to time, when monks began making strands of beads by tying knots on a string at regular intervals in order to say their prayers to God. Worry beads depict the Greek easy-going mentality. Most Cretans carry a komboloi with them at all times. One can hear komboloi’s flips and tricks in a busy kafeneion (café) downtown, where people play with their komboloi in different manners, thus letting go of their stress. Nowadays, the fact that the komboloi keeps your hands occupied has been promoted as an excellent way to quit smoking. Our worry beads come in 2 glass tubes. 

✻Greek lucky eye bracelet 

In Greece there is a belief that Matiasma will cause misfortune or injury. Matiasma means “evil eye” in Greek, and is often shortened to mati which means “eye”. The classic Greek “lucky eye” symbol charm aims to ward off the effects of the Matiasma. Blue charms shaped like eyes worn on a necklace or a bracelet “reflect” the evil. The lucky eye is the most commonly talked about ancient tradition in the Greek Isles. Celebrate Greek culture with a Greek lucky eye bracelet in the blue and white colours of the Greek flag. 

The Komboloi - Worry Beads Gift Box arrives in our blue or white Chic Greek Gifts purse box, ready to gift right out of the mail!

A handwritten gift message card is available too. Please add a note during your checkout with the message for your gift card.
