Jeweler George Khalife shared the photo and wrote: “Good vibes only for this beautiful couple!!’ @gigihadid @zayn congrats.”
The couple’s bracelets feature roughly 0.20 carats of diamonds and are worth $275.
The evil eye is culturally believed to be a talisman that can ward off negativity and bad misfortune.
George also gifted Gigi her ‘Zayn’ diamond necklace, which she wore several times in 2018.

The jeweler told Page Six on Monday that he sent the couple the bracelets after congratulating them on the phone.
He said: “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.’
“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. So I was like, ‘Don’t worry, I got you.’”
Gigi is of Palestinian and Dutch descent, while Zayn has an English and Pakistani heritage.
Speaking to Jimmy Fallon, the 25-year-old said: “Obviously, we wished we could have announced it on our own terms but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support.”
The pair are thought to be expecting a baby girl.
They are currently self-isolating with her family at her mother’s farm, and Gigi said: “Especially during this time, it’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and be together and really experience it day by day.”
The supermodel also gave some insight into her pregnancy cravings, admitting that she has been eating an “everything bagel a day”.
She revealed Cake Boss star Buddy Valastro made her a bagel cake for her special birthday, which left her in tears.
“I eat a everything bagel a day and so I was already so excited that my birthday cake was an everything bagel, but then I found out that Buddy [Valastro], the Cake Boss, made my cake,” she said.
“I don’t know if it was my hormones right now or just, like, quarantine emotional-ness, but I cried every five minutes for an hour every time I thought about that Buddy made my cake.”
It was first claimed on Monday that the model is around 20 weeks pregnant with boyfriend Zayn’s child.
Family sources said that the pair “has been informed that the sex of their forthcoming child together will be female.”

They posed together in a snap over the weekend as she celebrated her 25th birthday, with Zayn standing between the two sisters with his hand on Gigi’s waist in one snap.
Fashion-watchers have noticed her wearing increasingly loose clothing in public recently, where once she was more likely to show off her figure.
Zayn and Gigi first began dating in 2015 after meeting on the set of the video for his song Pillow Talk.
