The evil eye symbol is a talisman in many cultures, dating back to at least the 6th century BC. As a class, they are called "apotropaic" talismans, meaning that they turn away or turn back harm. It is believed that wearing an evil eye will protect you or ward off any harm or illness that may be inflicted from a malevolent glare.
The word Hamsa originates from the ancient Semitic root word for the number five. The Hamsa can be worn around the neck as a talisman to protect the wearer from general misfortune or as an amulet. It is used as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history, the hamsa hand is believed to provide defense against the evil eye. The spiritual protection of a Hamsa Hand brings good fortune, love, happiness, and good health.
