The palm symbol, better known as a Hamsa, is connected with many religions and is believed to protect the wearer from the “evil eye” or from the envy of others. The Hamsa has taken on a new popularity in the fashion world and has recently become a major trend. Hamsa jewelry is now seen at almost every jewelry store and is a widely popular trend.

This Fashionista uses Hamsa accessories to take her casual yet cute weekend outfit to the next level.
