Hamsa Pendant Necklace
Skirball Cultural Center/Metropolitan Museum of Art
Crafted of sterling silver, this Hamsa Pendant is adapted from a 1960s Tunisian hamsa found on Djerba Island. The hamsa has been a symbol believed to protect against malevolent spirits (referred to as the evil eye) for many centuries throughout North Africa and the Middle East. Both Jewish and Muslim cultures use the hamsa symbol, however its origin predates both religions.
Produced in cooperation with the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Sterling silver. Lobster claw clasp. Pendant: 1". Chain: 18" long.
