Description 

 

925 Sterling silver

Size: 0.8" X 0.8" / 2 X 2 cm 

This amulet against the Evil Eye is in foliate form and is typical of the amulets of Persian Jews. It bears the Hebrew letter 'Heh', an abbreviation of the Divine Name, as its central motif. 

Amulets protected the wearer, his family and possessions from natural disaster, spells and evil spirits. The power of amulets lay in the names and formulas of the Divine Name inscribed on them.  

A sterling silver chain or black silicone cord in your choice of length are available for an additional fee. 

This item comes with a certificate of authenticity of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem. Enclosed is a small description of its historical background in English and Hebrew.
