Harmony Ball or Bola Necklace or Harmony Necklace or Angel Caller?

What's in a name - is there a difference?


Often but not exclusively worn by women who are pregnant a Harmony Ball or Bola Necklace or Angel Caller or Bola de Grossesse or Harmony Necklace or Pregnancy Necklace is a chiming necklace pendant said to provide harmony between the mother and her unborn child  - refer this detailed authoritative article on the 'Benefits of wearing a Harmony Ball during and after the pregnancy' which highlights the real benefit and dispels the myths.

Whatever name it is called, the buyer should be aware that there are two types of Harmony Balls, Bola Necklaces, Angel Callers etc - 'Real' and 'Copies' - 'Real' ones are Hand Made primarily of Sterling Silver - 'Copies' are mass produced in China and are 'only Plated silver' - only one will ever last to be a 'Keepsake' to hand on to your Daughter.

So with so many names, is there a difference between them? - basically not. The Harmony Ball originates from Bali, Indonesia whilst the Bola Necklace or Angel Caller or Bola de Grossesse are of Mexican origin - both cultures having used the chiming ball for wearing by expecting mothers, among other uses (for example the ancient chiming Druid Ball was worn in Battle by Scottish warriors).

The only real difference, aside from name and aside from the critically important 'Real' and 'Copies', is some variations in design, primarily culturally evolved variations of a theme.This article 'What is a Harmony Ball?' gives more insight into the history and cultural aspects of these necklaces, also called simply a Pregnancy Necklace

Wikipedia references this Harmony Ball blog

The following is a reference in Wikipedia referencing this blog - we are proud that our content is recognized by Wikipedia as being authoritative on the subject of Harmony Balls.

Bola (pregnancy bell)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Harmony ball)

A Bola is a bell worn by women on a long necklace during their pregnancy.[1] It is traditionally used in Mexico and Bali and is know under other names, such as harmony ball and pregnancy bell. The ball hangs low on the abdomen so the gentle chime soothes the baby as mother moves. When the baby is born, the baby is believed to be extra soothed by the sound because the child associates it with its time in the womb.

Beware ‘Fake Sterling Silver’ Harmony Balls


Are you really getting Sterling Silver?

As it is with many other items Chinese manufacturers are producing ‘copies’ of Balinese Harmony Ball pendants (and have been for many years now), and the deception is that these copies are NOT made from Sterling Silver – they are merely ‘coated’ with sterling silver. These Harmony Balls are made from Alpaca, a low grade material made from a hotch botch of minerals (often passed off as Sterling Silver) and then coated. These fake sterling silver Harmony Balls are found on all types of sites on the internet, some are big name reputable sites.
Many, but not all these days, are stamped ‘C925’ on the top of the stem where normally on a genuine Balinese Harmony Ball would be set a gemstone. The mark ‘C925’ indicates ‘coated with 925’ BUT no-one else in the world does this or uses such a mark so it is very deceptive, most people assume it means 925 Sterling Silver .....
