The Duchess got spotted wearing the tiny jewelry piece during her first royal engagement to the nonprofit, Justice Desk, in Nyanga Township, Cape Town.

Markle wore to the nonprofit which educates young people on self-defense and awareness, a black and white maxi gown, black Castaner wedges, stud earrings, and the Hamsa necklace.

The former actress fell in love with the jewelry after seeing it on a guest while attending an event

According to People, the former actress fell in love with the jewelry after seeing it on a guest while attending an event. The guest's name is unknown, and Alemdara has a privacy policy, that prevents it from releasing the name of their customers.

In a statement to the news outlet, the jewelry brand said:

"We are thrilled that the Duchess of Sussex has chosen to wear one of our necklaces, but we do not comment on individual customers."

It symbolizes the hand of God, repels negativity, and return a curse to anyone who places one on the wearer

Markle equally wore the Hamsa necklace during her visit with Prince Harry to the oldest mosque in South Africa, Auwal Mosque.

This time, she paired the jewelry with an olive maxi dress made from recycled tissue nylon by STAUD. The necklace equally graced the mom-of-one neck while attending the heritage day events at Bo Kaap.

The Hamsa "Evil Eye," is in the shape of a hand containing an eye with a blue sapphire. It is symbolic of different things, especially in the Jewish and Turkish cultures.

It symbolizes the hand of God, repels negativity, and return a curse to anyone who places one on the wearer. It equally brings good fortune, happiness, and health to the wearer.

Markle has a ring from the Turkish jeweler, Kismet by Mika, that has the evil eye, and she wore it last December during a visit to Brinsworth House, a residential nursing home under the Royal Variety Charity.
