Dating back to ancient Mesopotamia, the Hamsa Hand is a universal symbol of protection and good luck.
It also represents blessings and strength and is used to deflect negative energies and the "evil eye", a malicious stare thought to bring illness, death and misfortune.
The Hamsa is sometimes painted in the walls of houses for protection or in the doorways to rooms of expectant mothers, since it is believed to promote a good pregnancy.
This elegant Hamsa is perfectly symmetrical, with the palm of the hand divided into balanced sections and embellished with filigree designs. This elegant bracelet stretches for easy wear.
