This maternity necklace is part of a tradition dating back through millennia in Mexican and Indonesian civilizations. The spherical pendant containing a small metal ball hangs from an extra-long necklace and emits a soft melodic chime that inspires calmness and harmony as the mother moves about her daily activities.
In Mayan culture, it was known as the “Llamador de Angeles” (the Angel Caller). Legends tell of how the soft tinkling sound of the ball, unique to each pendant, has the magical ability to summon the guardian angel of its wearer, protecting her and accompanying her throughout her life.
The Harmony Ball necklace (aka Harmony Bola) was traditionally given to pregnant women, who would wear it throughout their pregnancy as an amulet to protect them and their babies. After birth, the soft and familiar tinkling sound of the bell would settle the newborn, helping him or her sleep by recalling the gentle warmth and care of the womb. The Harmony Ball pendant was then given to the newborn, being hung over the cradle or stitched into its comfort blanket to help the baby calm down and keep the guardian angel watching over the baby for protection.
The extra-long necklace allows the pendant to rest close to the pregnant mother’s bump so that the gentle sound is just audible enough to be heard by the mother and her unborn baby through the womb without disturbing others around.
The ancient tradition of the Harmony Ball or Angel Caller necklace has been revived over the past few years and has ever since been transforming into a lovely piece of jewelry growing in popularity around the world embraced by pregnant and non-pregnant women alike as a protection amulet and as a special bond between mother and child.
The Harmony Ball necklace is an ideal and thoughtful gift for any women, expecting or not, and a keepsake piece handed down from mother to child.
