Meghan Markle Spotted Wearing a Hamsa and 'Evil Eye' Necklace on Royal Tour of South Africa
Meghan Markle rocked a Hamsa necklace, with an "Evil eye," on several occasions during the Royal tour in Africa.
Meghan Markle during her ongoing royal tour of Africa with Prince Harry and Archie has shown off her chic fashion sense with classy outfits. So much so, that her "Evil eye," hamsa necklace almost went unnoticed.
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 UK jewelry brand, Alemdara designed the necklace, and it sells for $550. It features a delicate diamond pave mini hand of Hamsa on an 11-carat yellow gold chain, with 0.05-carat white diamonds.
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.
