Originating from the Hebrew word hamesh, literally meaning five, the Hand of Fatima is an ancient talisman that symbolizes feminine power. The hand is worn as a defense against negative energy as it deflects the gaze of the evil eye away from the wearer. Believed to channel the forces of good, embrace the energy of the Hand of Fatima Charm that promotes healing and fosters miracles. Each charm hangs from Alex and Ani’s Expandable Wire Ring. The Hand of Fatima is available on both a 14kt GF Expandable Wire Ring with a Sterling Silver 14kt Plate Charm and on an Argentium Silver Expandable Wire Ring with a Sterling Silver Charm.
