Algerian Enamelled "Hand of Fatima"

Sorry, this Hand is no longer available. We may however, still have a similar one . 

 A characterful Algerian Silver Pendant, the  protective "Hand of Fatima" or "hamsa"  worn to ward off  the "Evil Eye"

Made of flat silver with a rich blue and yellow enamelled background embellished and seperated with silver wire spirals. 

Two green enamelled triangles with a central raised silver ball form an eye motif, that averts the gaze of Evil.

From the "Greater Kabyle" region of Northern Algeria..

 The broad suspension ring (6 mm) will comfortably take a medium chain, cord or choker.

The silver has a gentle patina and doesn't need a polish yet. However a occasional careful polish with a dry Silver Polishing Cloth, when you think it needs it will remove a lot of its age but will also reveal the brilliance of its detail in the process.

You'll  probably like our old Algerian rings, see also MR100, MR102, MR103 or just search "Algerian" to see pendants too.

Age: Late 20th Century.

Size: H 50 mm x W 34 mm

Weight: 13 grams.
