Trendy and fun, these earrings feature a hamsa hand and a Turquoise gemstone dangling inside a hammered sterling silver circle. Short and lightweight, these earrings are perfect for every-day wear.
The hamsa hand (Arabic) or hamesh hand (Hebrew) is an old, yet still popular amulet for protection from the envious or evil eye. The words hamsa and hamesh mean "five" and refer to the digits on the hand. An alternative Islamic name for this charm is the Hand of Fatima, in reference to the daughter of Mohammed. An alternative Jewish name for it is the Hand of Miriam, in reference to the sister of Moses and Aaron.
Handmade with genuine sterling silver earwires, which are safe for even the most sensitive ears.
