Recycled silver Florin
The exact origins of this ancient ‘hand’ symbol are unknown. Throughout the ages however, we know it is universal sign of protection throughout many cultures and beliefs. The hand of Hamsa is also referred as the Hand of Fatima. In all situations and beliefs the hand symbol is always employed in jewellery as a protective amulate, offering strength and courage in its wearer.
The necklace is 100% unique, individual and handmade. It has been recycled from a sterling silver Georgian or Victorian Florin coin. For added interest and proof of ethical and original origin the ‘off cut’ of the silver Florin is packed in with the necklace. A fab piece of historical silver.
