About the itemThe hand of Fatima (or Khamsa, or Hand of Miriam) as it is known, is popular worldwide as a protective symbol against the evil eye. Its age is uncertain, although it seems to predate both Judaism and Islam. In can be seen in many formats in many countries; on doors in France, and on architecture and jewellery alike in North Africa.This piece is cast in British sterling silver from a pendant dating from the 1960s and is unusual in respect of the fact that it is double sided, most Khamsas are detailed on one side only, so this make this piece beautifully detailed and unusual in its execution. We have oxidised the recessed areas to bring out the detail.Measuring 55mm x 35mm this Khamsa drop is beautifully substantial and can be added to your rosa, or worn on a chain or silk cord and offers a pretty, hippie chic luxe look which you can wear during the day and into the evening.OTHER METALS: This charm is available on the site in sterling silver, but can be made in gold, platinum or palladium by special order.
