The Hamesh hand or Hamsa hand is a popular motif in Jewish jewelry. Arab cultures often refer to it as the Hand of Fatima, which represents the Hand of G-d. The Hamsa serves as an ancient talismanic way of averting the evil eye and providing a "protecting hand" or "Hand of God". The Hamsa appears often in stylized form, as a hand with three fingers raised, and sometimes with two thumbs arranged symmetrically. The symbol is used in amulets, charms, jewelry, door entrances, cars, and other places to ward the evil eye.
Before cleaning, you should make sure of certain things, such as the stones should be fitted properly. Make sure that mounting and all the clasps, prongs, etc., that fasten the piece together are tight enough to clean.

Now, the question that comes to our mind is how to clean it? To answer this, let us tell you that there are various ways of doing so.
