Handcrafted from 18 carat yellow gold, this Ra necklace features a simulated opal hand of hamsa surrounded by pavé-set white diamonds on a delicate yellow gold chain. Equally enchanting when worn on its own or layered with other necklaces, such as the Didem or Alpy, this understated, luxe piece is designed to move effortlessly between occasions, making it a stunning and wearable gift.
Widely recognised in many cultures for its powers to ward off negativity, the hamsa hand’s spiritual currency is rooted in the ancient world. Depicting the open right hand, legend has it that the talisman brings its owner health, luck and happiness. Today the hand of hamsa can be seen printed across boats, bags and the doorways of the Mediterranean, and of course, jewellery.
