We're sending all our best wishes and positive vibes to Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik, who are expecting their first child together, reportedly a daughter, in September.

And to show off their good spirits and energy amidst a pandemic, the couple showed off their matching gifted 14-karat gold and diamond-studded evil eye bracelets by celebrity-favourite jeweller George Khalife over the weekend, after confirming their pregnancy.

"Good vibes only for this beautiful couple!! @gigihadid @zayn congrats #georgethejeweler #gigihadid #zayn #jewelry #bracelets #diamonds," Khalife captioned the Instagram photo.

If you’re not familiar with the evil eye motif, it’s supposed to help prevent the wearer from bad fortune and, basically, negative vibes.

“I don’t know how exactly the evil eye came up, but I think I maybe mentioned it and she was like, ‘That’s so funny, we were just talking about pulling out some evil eyes,'” the jeweller told Page Six.

“We’re all Middle Eastern, so in our culture, we believe they ward away jealousy and keep haters away. And you know everybody’s going to be talking about them — all eyes on them,” Khalife continued. “So I was like, ‘Don’t worry, I got you.'”

Available in 14 karat white, yellow and rose gold, the symbolic trinkets feature roughly 0.20 carats of diamonds and retail for $405 CAD each.

“I feel like times like this are just very emotional — there’s so much going on,” Khalife said. “I think they need to look at those bracelets as a reminder to not let the negative energy affect them.”

During last week's episode of an at-home edition of “The Tonight Show,” Hadid, 25, confirmed her pregnancy to host Jimmy Fallon, telling him, "Obviously, we wish they could've announced it on our own terms, but we're very excited and happy and grateful for everyone's well-wishes and support."

She also reflected on her current situation as she continues to practice social distancing from home and said her pregnancy is a "nice silver lining to be able to be home and together and to really experience it day by day."

Of course, Hadid and Malik, 27, aren’t the only celebrities to have worn evil eye jewellery in recent weeks.
