The hamsa symbol, if you’re not familiar with it already, is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa. This powerful symbol predates Christianity and Islam, but is well-known in both faiths as well as Judaism.
Depicting an open right hand, an image considered a sign of protection, the hamsa is believed to provide defense against the evil eye – a malicious stare believed to cause illness, death, or general misfortune.
Whether or not you believe the hamsa will ward off evil glares, this symbol is a great way to show a loved one that you’re there to protect them. It’s also a meaningful gift for loved ones of different faiths. Jewlr’s Hamsa Charm, is a perfect rendition of the ancient symbol and can easily be added to a receiver’s existing charm bracelet, or to one from Jewlr’s very own range of charm bracelets.
The Hamsa Charm, pictured above, is customizable with your choice of metal; two engravings; and a genuine, simulated or Swarovski Zirconia stone at its center.
