Harmony Ball Pendants are:
worn as necklaces and have been used in various cultures for centuries by pregnant women and hence harmony balls are often called pregnancy harmony ball pendants. Pregnant women in Mexico are known to have traditionally worn these harmony balls when pregnant. A 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. The pregnancy harmony balls are generally worn on very long necklace chains or cords so that the harmony ball itself rests on the swollen abdomen of the pregnant woman. It is said that from about 16-20 weeks into the pregnancy that the unborn baby will hear the soft chimes 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. Pregnancy Harmony Balls are often worn for a period of time after the birth of the child. The mother will often shorten the necklace so that the harmony ball pendant is situated between her throat and her breasts so that it can be played with by the child whilst breast feeding or the soothing sound of the pregnancy harmony ball emanates as the mother gently rocks her baby to sleep. In some cases the pregnancy harmony ball pendant is passed on from mother to daughter and becomes a treasured family heirloom. 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.
