Description: Sterling Silver Apple of my Eye Charm. Ever wonder where the affectionate term "Apple of My Eye" came from? In ancient times, the pupil of the eye was referred to as the "apple" since it was believed that the pupil was round. And when we look at someone, their reflection appears on our pupils. It therefore followed that when there was someone special in our life, who you "saw" often, they became the "apple of your eye." This phrase has roots in the Bible, Shakespeare, and other classical literature. In modern terms, we use it to signify someone we cherish above all others. It is a term reserved for our favorite friend, family member, or loved one. Show that special someone how much they mean to you with this affectionate apple charm. It makes a great teacher appreciation gift too!
