Hamsa

The hamsa, in Arabic, and chamesh in Hebrew, are popularly used throughout the Middle East and now, all around the world by people of different faiths, as a protective amulet against evil. The symbol is variously called hamsa, chamsa, the hand of Miriam (the sister of Moses and Aaron), the Hand of God and the hand of Fatima (the daughter of Muhammad). The hand sometimes incorporates an eye, as is the case with this modern interpretation, and is believed to become doubly powerful as a result.

Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in a jewelry bag will help prevent tarnishing.
