Originating from the Hebrew word "hamesh", literally meaning "five", the Hamsa (Hand of Fatima) is an ancient talisman symbolizing feminine power. Believed to channel the forces of good, the hand is worn as a defense against negative energy, as it deflects the gaze of the evil eye away from the wearer.

Available in Rafaelian Silver, Rafaelian Gold or Rafaelian Rose Gold. Nickel free. Proudly designed and crafted in the USA.
