Hamsa & Evil Eye Jewelry
The Aaron Basha Hamsa Collection
At Aaron Basha, our fine jewelry craftsmanship extends to several collections beyond the famous, classic baby shoe charms we are known for — one of our currently most popular being our Hamsa jewelry. If you’re not familiar, the hamsa is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet symbolizing the Hand of God. Regardless of your faith, it is known as a protective symbol said to bring its owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune, as well as protection from the evil eye. The hamsa has a variety of interpretations, depending on the culture. The word, “hamsa,” derives its name from the five fingers on the hand. The hamsa hand sometimes includes an evil eye symbol within its design.
The hamsa symbol has become increasingly popular in jewelry and is often worn by celebrities. Our interpretation of hamsa jewelry is fashioned in the finest quality of 14K and 18K white and yellow gold, and titanium. Our offerings range from the elegant, accented with diamonds and fine colored gemstones, to the whimsical with enamel accents. Whether you prefer to wear your hamsa charm on a fine gold chain or on one of our popular Sass beaded styles, you’re sure to find one that matches your fashion aesthetic. Take a look at some of our most popular styles.Browse Hamsa Jewelry
The Aaron Basha Evil Eye Collection
You may be familiar with the expression of giving someone the evil eye. What you may not know is that this expression is relevant in many countries and cultures, going back several centuries to classical antiquity. It is referenced in many religions and in written passages and even in artwork. The evil eye is said to be a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent glare given to a person when they are not aware, hence the expression. Many cultures believe receiving the evil eye, especially from someone with green or blue eyes, will cause misfortune or injury. Talismans were created to ward off the curse and turn away the harm, with many being fashioned in blue hues. Evil eye jewelry has become very fashionable in recent years.
Although the Aaron Basha interpretation of Evil Eye jewelry is steeped in the same meaning of protection from evil as our Hamsa collection, the design of the pieces is very different. Literally fashioned to resemble the shape of eyes, our more casual evil eye charm styles are available crafted in combinations of yellow or white 18 karat gold, and sometimes mixed with bright enamels. These more casual styles look great when paired with colorful neck and wrist cords for an everyday look. We also have a wide variety of more elegant evil eye jewelry in bracelets and pendants that are adorned in diamond baguettes or diamond pave that will catch admiring looks and garner endless compliments. From simple and sophisticated in fine metals and gemstones to colorful, casual, beaded styles, we have something for everyone, whether you are planning to buy for yourself or to gift to someone you love.
