 In folk magic the horned hand (in Italian - mano cornuto) is a sign against the evil eye. Our sterling silver amulet is a traditional design of a hand with the index finger and little finger extended, while the two middle fingers are held folded down by the thumb.  The horns point downward in order to send or ground the evil eye.  In folk magic it was common to use this gesture to block envy, which was believed to cause illness.  

You can read more in "the Cimaruta and Other Magical Charms From Old Italy" by Raven Grimassi.
