Hamsa Amuletic Pendant 

Hand-shaped amulets – called hamsas, after the Arabic word for “five” – are common in Muslim countries, particularly in North Africa, and are thought to hold powerful magical properties. Muslims also call this type of amulet the “Hand of Fatima,” after the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad, and believe in its powers to ward off the evil eye. Jews in the Maghreb adopted the hamsa, adding Jewish inscriptions and symbols. 

This hamsa amulet, with its three middle fingers joined and its thumb and little finger turned outward, is typical of the Maghreb. It is made in filigree and decorated with vegetal motifs. Two loops for hanging are attached to the top of the gold-plated pendant. 

This beautiful and delicate piece, suitable for any age and gender, is sure to make an exciting addition to your jewelry collection. 

Did You Know? The use of amulets dates from ancient times and continues to this day. Amulets were intended to protect the wearer, his family, and his possessions from natural disasters, spells, and the evil eye. Some were thought to bear healing properties or aid fertility; others protected the wearer on his travels, conferred blessings and good fortune, or elicited the good will and love of others. The magical power attributed to Jewish amulets stems from the versions of God’s name or Biblical verses inscribed on them. For extra protection, the name of the wearer was sometimes added.
