Hamsa Bracelet Pendant, Silver
Modeled on a pendant from Iranian Kurdistan, 19th century
The hamsa (meaning “five” in Arabic) is an amulet in the form of an open palm, intended to ward off the evil eye and enhance good fortune. In Islamic tradition, it symbolizes the “hand of Fatima”, the daughter of the prophet Muhammad, as well as the five tenets of Islam (each represented by one of the fingers): faith, prayer, charity, fasting, and pilgrimage. In Judaism, it has come to be associated with the Five Books of Moses and with God’s name (indicated by heh, the fifth letter of Hebrew alphabet).
This hamsa bracelet pendant, decorated with gemstones, is a replica of part of a 19th-century amulet from Iranian Kurdistan intended to protect the mother and child – a wonderful addition to your pendant bracelet.SHOW MORE
