Hamsa Necklace & Pendant Buying Guide
The Hamsa, sometimes also called the Hamsa hand or the Hand of Miriam, can be seen everywhere in Israel, from ceramic tiles to lottery cards. While the ancient symbol was previously only found in Middle Eastern and North African cultures, the five-pointed hand can be found today on many pieces of jewelry, clothing, and home décor in everyday stores across America. Among the most sought after Hamsa products are necklaces, which are often associated with good luck and protection. Hamsa necklaces have been worn for centuries not only by Jewish people, but by followers of Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism.
While Hamsa pendants and necklaces are easier and easier to find these days, few others can say that each of their Hamsa necklaces are made in Israel. Like all of our products, our Hamsa necklaces are carefully crafted by local Israeli artisans. Many choose to unleash their creativity and incorporate precious stones, other Judaic symbols, lines from sacred Jewish texts, and designs inspired by the Land of Israel.
Our full selection includes more than 250 options to choose from, with something for every style, occasion, and budget. This buying guide will break down the different types of Hamsa necklaces so you can find the perfect pendant.
Silver Hamsa Necklace
A sterling silver Hamsa necklace is a timeless and trendy gift, perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, Bat Mitzvahs, and other occasions. Often decorated with intricate filigree and gorgeous stones, silver Hamsa necklaces ensure you never have to choose between your style and spirituality.

Diamond Hamsa Pendant
Everyone has heard the phrase "diamonds are a girl's best friend," but around here, we add "especially when they are embedded on a Hamsa necklace made in Israel!" Like many of the necklaces we mentioned before, diamond Hamsa pendants often include the Evil Eye and colorful gems, but with that extra sparkle and dazzle that comes with authentic diamonds.

Opal Hamsa Necklace
Opals are considered a special stone in Judaism, as they were a part of the choshen (breastplate) worn by the High Priest of the Israelites when the Temple stood. In modern times, the gemstone has become popular because of its bold turquoise tone. An opal Hamsa necklace is the perfect way to add a vibrant burst of color to your jewelry collection - whether you want to keep it simple or go for gold.

Men's Hamsa Necklace
Hamsa pendants have soared in popularity among Israelis - men included! Like the styles for women, a men's Hamsa necklace makes a wonderful gift in honor of a birthday, anniversary, Bar Mitzvah, or any other special occasion. Available in sterling silver and gold, men's Hamsa necklaces often feature the Evil Eye, Eilat Stones, Jerusalem motifs, and other Jewish symbols.
