The Meaning Behind Meghan’s Necklace On Africa Royal TourSeptember 23, 2019
Today, on their first the first day of Royal tour to Southern Africa, Meghan was pictured wearing a dainty necklace featuring a hand symbol.
The necklace that Meghan wore, has the shape of a Hamsa Hand. It’s a protective sign symbolising the Hand of God and believed to give protection from the “evil eye”.
It is believed the eye of the Hamsa “repels negativity” and puts a “curse” on anyone wishing that person harm.
An important symbol in Turkish culture – “Hamsa Hand” is also supposed that symbol brings “luck, fertility and good fortune”.
This is not the first time Meghan has worn jewellery with the Hamsa symbol.
Earlier this year, never-seen-before photos of the Duchess of Sussex and Harry’s from 2017 trip to Africa for World Elephant Day were shared. And in one of the photos, Meghan was pictured wearing a dainty gold Hamsa ring.
One of the Duchess’ favourite pieces of jewellery is the ring by Turkish designer Kismet by Milka which price is £250, and she was previously pictured wearing it during a visit to the Royal Variety care home last December.
At that time, the royal fans were quick to point out that the ring gave protection and repelled negativity.
Another cultural symbol for good fortune is the Hamsa hand on Meghan’s ring which features a blue sapphire “evil eye” in the middle.
According to reports, it is believed that when the hand is facing down – fulfilled prayers and brings good luck to the wearer.
She has also worn an £85 ring from Missoma which symbolised “love, passion and friendship thanks to its open-heart design”.
The Duchess of Sussex wore a sweet “love” slogan ring shortly after she confirmed she was pregnant with Archie. She wore it on a visit to the Hubb Community Kitchen in November 2018.
Today, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were in Nyanga Township in Cape Town and they participated in a workshop that teaches children about their rights, self-awareness and safety.
