Hamsa Symbolism

September 21, 2015 1:36 am Published by

Carrying on with our series discussing the different symbols we used throughout on jewelry here at Zenned Out, today I want to talk a little bit about the Hamsa. It is one of my favorite symbols, as you may or may not be able to tell by how much we use it around here! 😉


The Hamsa is an open palm amulet that has various designs on the inside, most commonly that of an evil eye. It is popular throughout the Middle East and Africa, mostly in the Islamic and Jewish faith traditions. It is used as a sign of protection to ward off the evil eye.

Hamsa’s meaning of providing protection and strength is so cool to me and I love the idea of wearing it on you, whether as a cuff, ring, or earrings. I also find the Hamsa’s history to be particularly fascinating, as it was commonly worn by women to provide strength and boost fertility.

I hope this little blog post provides you with new insight into the Hamsa symbol–and if you have one of Zenned Out’s Hamsa charms, I hope it provides you with great strength throughout your days!
