Hamsa or Chamseh are Fashionably Lucky Charms

A Symbol we Love to Wear…..

The hamsa, or chamseh, literally means “five” and is a hand or palm shaped amulet that’s become very popular lately. Depicting the open right hand, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history, the hamsa is believed to provide defense against the evil eye. It is also known as the hand of Fatima. In silver and gold, it is said to bring good luck to the wearer. Women and girls of all ages can be seen wearing this symbol, said to bring the wearer luck, happiness, health and good fortune.
