The Hamsa is also variously known as the Hand of Fatima after the daughter of Muhammad, the Hand of Mary, the Hand of Miriam, and the Hand of the Goddess. A universal sign of protection, power and strength that dates back to ancient Mesopotamia, it's believed to protect against against the evil eye and and all negative energies.
In Jewish culture, the hamsa is called the Hand of Miriam; in Muslim culture, the Hand of Fatima. The Fatima amulet is called a Khamsa in the Muslim world, from the Arabic word for five, and is seen as protection against the evil eye.

There are two ways to display the Hamsa:
Hand Facing Down or Varada Mudra
When the Hamsa hand faces down, it opens you up to all of the abundance and goodness of the universe, welcoming them into your life. Hand facing down also brings fertility and answers to prayers and manifestations. Often, in this position, the fingers are closed together to bring good luck.
Hand Facing Up or Abhaya Mudra
When the Hamsa hand is facing up, it is a universal sign against evil. It is a powerful sign of protection, and shields us from our inner thoughts of hatred, jealousy and insecurities. Often, in this position, the fingers are spread apart to ward off evil.
May your Hamsa Hand bring you love, light, luck and protection.

You can prolong the life of your jewellery by properly and regularly caring for it. There are some basic rules that you should follow in order for you to prolong the life of your precious and beautiful pieces of jewellery:
- If possible, rings and other pieces of jewellery should not be worn while carrying out home and garden work, exercising or bathing (salt or chlorine water).
- Jewellery should be removed before going to bed or taking a shower.
- Perfume or hairspray can cause the jewellery to become dull and decrease its shine. We recommend putting perfume, hairspray or other cosmetics on first before putting on your jewellery.
- Pearls should not come into contact with perfume, make-up or hairspray. Alcohol or other solvents can damage the surface of the pearls.
- Pearls should be kept separately from other jewellery, ideally in a cloth bag or wrapped in a soft cloth. That way you can prevent your synthetic pearls from being scratched.
- Soap, cream and make-up residues can be removed using an ultrasonic device. The ultrasonic device should not be filled with abrasive cleaning agents. It is best to use water with a little bit of neutral cleaning agent.
- Please use a jewellery cleaning cloth to polish slightly tarnished areas and remove dullness, bringing the jewellery back to its original shine.
- If the discoloration and dullness can't be removed with the jewellery cleaning cloth, we recommend using a jewellery bath solution.
- Jewellery cleaning products such as the cleaning cloth
