Hamsa Jewelry

The Hamsa is a symbol that has been used regularly for thousands of years in amulets, jewelry, and charms. It is said to protect against the evil eye. The hand has several alternate names depending on the religion in which it is being used, for example the Jewish name is the Hand of Miriam, and some Islamic sects call it the Hand of Fatima or the Eye of Fatima. Some archeological evidence suggests it predates both Judaism and the Islamic faiths and goes all the way back to the Phoenicians around 1,500 BC.

No matter the religion or name it is used an emblem of protection. We've just launched a new set of Hamsa Hand Bracelets where you can choose several available gemstones, we also have a new Hand of Protection necklace incorporating the symbol as well, it uses Turquoise and Jade both of which are considered stones of protection.
