The Hands Of Fatima

Source from Wikipedia

"The Hamsa (Arabic: خمسةkhamsah, Hebrew: חַמְסָה, also romanized khamsa, meaning lit. "five") is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa, and commonly used in jewelery and wall hangings.[1][2] Depicting the open right hand, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history, the hamsa is believed to provide defense against the evil eye."
The Hand (Khamsa), particularly the open right hand, is a sign of protection that also represents blessings, power and strength, and is seen as potent in deflecting the evil eye.
Speaking of that, I really love my new bracelet from @fangsanddangs. Because the design is very spiritualy yet nice. I bought the white one which has this red shade if you see it in the light. You can also check the design in Zalora and find it your own :)

The five finger of the hands.  It may also be taken as a reference to the primary number itself.
