19th century and earlier, North Africa and Oman
The most gorgeous old, very old, mostly salmon colored coral (natural of course) and silver hamsas cut simply, so pure.    Jewels designed this with our finest hand woven cord and dangling sterling chains- as the Berbers do.  It’s and heirloom piece.  Save it for your daughter or hers.  This leaves one breathless.

One of a kind- of course!

Average hamsa, including hasp: 1 7/8 x 1 1/4″
Necklace length from end of loop to coin closure: 23.5″

A note about our woven cords.  We weave these by hand, every one of them.   Like all Jewels’ work no two are exact, as each of us.  The work is labor intensive.  When warmed to the skin the cord becomes more supple, conforms to the wearer, hangs at it should; the necklace transforms more than just a necklace.  It becomes her or him.
