The Hamsa symbol is the ancient symbol of Divine protection against negative energies and remains to this day a symbol of luck and protection, making it a popular decorative motif throughout Jewish art and jewelry.
A sterling silver snake chain or black silicone cord (in your choice of length) are available for an additional fee.
Roman Glass comes in hues of blue and green.
Israel is one of the few locations in the world in which a series of geological and climatic phenomena coincide enabling the formation and preservation of this strikingly colorful glass. These sites date back to the period of the Romans almost 2000 years ago, where contact with mineral rich soil and oxidation combined to form layers resembling Opal, called Patina, enabling the exquisite surface coloring which varies depending on the minerals to which the glass has been exposed.
These jewelry pieces make great gifts for your friends, family and yourself.
Note: To preserve patina do not allow glass to come in contact with water.
