what is hamsa


We've all seen the rise of Bohemian Jewellery, the wild, eccentric style has really taken off in the last year, and one of the things that has risen from this trend is the popularity of Hamsa Hand jewellery.

So, what is a it all about? Who is Hamsa and what does it all mean?

Hamsa is the hand of Prophet Muhammad's daughter Fatima. It is the symbol of patience, loyalty, faith and resistance against difficulties. According to common belief, it tells of the Fatima's struggle for dignity and her tough life. Thereby, purity, goodness and truth are blessed. For centuries, Fatima’s Hand has been a powerful talisman for good luck and one of the most popular amulets in the world of Islam for protection.

There we have it, the Hamsa Hand is for protection, good luck and ward off the evil eye (which you may also find in Hamsa Hand jewellery)
