# Pregnancy Harmony Balls, aka Bola Necklace, Bola Pregnancy Necklace, are generally worn on very long necklace chains or cords so that the harmony ball itself rests on the swollen abdomen (the bump) of the pregnant woman. It is said that from about 16–20 weeks into the pregnancy that, as mum goes about her daily tasks, the unborn baby will hear the soft chime sound coming from the harmony ball. The soft chiming sound is said to soothe the unborn baby and can even have calming benefits for the mother to be.

The sound becomes familiar to the baby in the womb and that becomes the PRIME BENEFIT of a PREGNANCY Harmony Ball AFTER the birth — when mum is breastfeeding.

After the birth of the child, the mother will often shorten the necklace so that the harmony ball pendant is situated between her nape and her breasts so that it can be played with by the child whilst breast feeding, additionally the soothing sound of the pregnancy harmony ball emanates as the mother gently rocks her baby to sleep — this familiar sound helps reduce some of the stress that some babies encounter when feeding (of course this helps mum too).

In many cases the pregnancy harmony ball pendant is passed on from mother to daughter and becomes a treasured family heirloom.

In selecting a Pregnancy Necklace the Birthstone of the mother to be or that of the due month of the baby is often considered — you can find Birthstone Harmony Balls here https://www.etsy.com/shop/HarmonyBalls?section_id=14912602&ref=shopsection_leftnav_3

# Harmony Ball Meaning — The Harmony Ball Story — What is a Harmony Ball?

Harmony Ball Pendants worn as necklaces have been used in various cultures for centuries by, among others, pregnant women and hence harmony balls are often called pregnancy harmony ball pendants. Women in Bali and Mexico are known to have traditionally worn these harmony balls when pregnant.

A traditional Harmony Ball typically is made from sterling silver and contains a small bell like item that emits very subtle but audible chimes with movement, not unlike the sound of wind charms in a very soft breeze. Traditional Balinese Harmony Ball styles can be found here in our store https://www.etsy.com/shop/HarmonyBalls?section_id=14733079&ref=shopsection_leftnav_1

Harmony Ball pendants are sometimes called different names in different societies, names like harmony chime ball, chime pendant, druid bells, (Mexican) Bola Necklace, Bali Harmony Balls, Pregnancy Necklace, Bola Pregnancy Necklace and similar names. Even though the word ball is usually associated with a harmony ball pendant these pendants can come in many other shapes some typically are the shape of a heart, a starfish or some other animal symbol however they are still invariably referred to as harmony ball pendants.

Sizes can vary with some harmony balls being tiny pendants, no more than approximately 8–10mm (1/4–3/8") in diameter (one wonders how the tiny bell is inserted into such a small harmony ball) and can be as large as one wants however the typical size of a sterling silver harmony ball pendant is about 18–27mm diam (3/4–1"). Harmony Balls do not necessarily need to be made from sterling silver however it is by far and away the choice for most having a number of distinct advantages over other metals.

The sterling silver harmony balls come in various styles that include a solid outer case sterling silver ball (with the small bell inside) that can be a smooth polished finish or be a cast casing that is finished with ornate designs. Some harmony ball designs involve a sterling silver “cage” which is usually of an ornate open wire , sheet or filigree design which allows for a smaller solid harmony ball inside which can in many cases be colored. This latter style of sterling silver harmony ball comes in many different styles created by regional artisans reflecting jewellery making styles and traditions from that region.

In this modern world the harmony ball pendant is becoming a very popular piece of fashion jewellery. The variety available allows for a choice of style for the discerning woman. Sterling silver harmony ball pendants combined with a sterling silver chain make a beautiful harmony ball necklace. The harmony ball pendants that have a colored ball in an open sterling silver cage style are becoming very popular indeed as the color choices allow for matching with an outfit — reds, blues, gold or silver colors, black, white and even chocolate colors look stunning against the sterling silver cage.

Pregnancy harmony balls are now no longer the sole domain of the pregnant woman — so many women in today’s hectic fast-paced world enjoy the calming effect of the subtle soothing chime sounds emanating from their harmony ball necklace or indeed their harmony ball bracelet. They are now regarded as a desirable item of fashion jewellery — harmony ball pendant necklaces can be worn with jeans or with a wedding dress and everything in between. Finding sterling silver harmony ball pendants is now much easier than it has been in the past, no need now to travel to Mexico or Bali or the Celtic regions — many different styles of harmony ball pendants and complete harmony ball necklaces can be found on right here in our store.
