14K Gold Hamsa with Central Star of David Pendant
A dainty gold pendant of the ancient hamsa talisman, which dates back to the times of ancient Mesopotamia. The pendant features a small Star of David where many commonly place an image of a seeing eye. Nowadays, the hamsa is known in Middle Eastern cultures as a symbol of good luck.
A beautiful hamsa pendant, made of gold, designed by the Israeli jewelry designer Ben Sadya. An ancient symbol for good luck originating in ancient Mesopotamian superstitions, this hamsa amulet blends in Jewish tradition with the addition of a Star of David, the Magen David, in place of the more common depiction of a mystical seeing eye.
The hand-with-an-eye symbol has been a part of other religions’ mythologies - it was used by worshipers in the ancient Egyptian, Phoenician, ancient Greek, Christian, Buddhist and Islamic faiths, as a talisman for fertility, warding off the evil eye, and good fortune. Use of this symbol was eventually spurned by Christianity in the 1500s. Eventually, the hamsa found its way into Sephardic and Mizrahi Jewish culture, as a symbol of good luck, and continues to be a part of modern Israeli jewelry designs and superstitions.
