Petite filigree hamsa bracelet charm, created by hand in sterling silver. The hamsa is most commonly used as a sign of protection to defend against negative spiritual forces caused by the jealousy of others, colloquially known as the ayin hara, or evil eye. Found in Jewish, Islamic and Christian traditions alike, the “healing hand” evokes a defense against all negativity.
This lacy filigree hamsa measures approximately 20 mm from top to bottom. That translates to .75 inches long, including the bail. It weighs 1 gram overall. This piece is marked to indicate .925 sterling silver purity. It was made by hand in Israel, and is hallmarked to that effect. Our filigree jewelry is polished by hand with soft brushes; No corrosive solvents or dips were used.
**Our fine jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**
