Harmony Ball Chime necklaces have been worn for hundreds of years, traditionally by pregnant women, especially in Bali and Mexico. They are also known as pregnancy harmony ball pendants. The pendant consists of a silver 'cage' with a brass ball inside that includes a delicate 'chime'. Any slight movement causes the ball to chime and often, when worn on a long chain around the neck or stomach, the growing baby is said to hear this and be comforted by the sounds. When the baby is born, traditionally the mother will shorten the chain so that the harmony ball lies between her neck and breast, thus allowing the baby to play with it.
Harmony Ball pendants are no longer solely for pregnant women but are often worn as a style choice. Elegant and unusual, these are the perfect accessory and talking-point to an outfit.
Our Woodland Harmony Ball necklace has brass ball which is loosely but securely encased inside a silver filigree patterned, tear drop shaped case.
This necklace is sweet, simple and has a delicate mid tone chime to it. This would look good on a long or short chain for day or evening wear.
Each gamelan ball comes in its own FREE GIFT-WRAP Chinese Pouch and free chain. Colours vary.
