Harmony Bell Review #readytopop

I received a free product to help facilitate this review. Regardless, I only recommend product that I would use.

Recently I was given the opportunity to work with Harmony Ball Company on a review of a beautiful Bola Pendant. I had never heard of these before, but I wish that I had. It is an extraordinary piece. 
Did you know that from around 20 weeks in Utero, babies can hear outside the womb? I had known that for quite some time.  
This pendant features a gorgeous blue bola ball encased in a sterling silver plated heart shaped basket hanging from a 36" long sterling silver plated chain. The basket opens and different colored bola balls are available to coordinate with any outfit. This can give you a unique more personalized look. The bola measures 20mm in diameter and the basket is 22mm. A beautiful handcrafted pendant for the mom-to-be. 


What is a Bola Ball?

It is a symbol of calm and relaxation, and has been used by pregnant women in many cultures for centuries. The bola is also known as the belly ball, belly bell and baby bell. Traditionally a Mexican bola is worn by pregnant women in Mexico. The Bola bell is worn low against moms baby bump. The soft chiming that it makes is said to create a soothing effect for the baby in the womb, and as well as the baby outside the womb. It is also supposed to help bond mom and baby.

I believe that is a beautiful sentiment and makes a wonderful story. Perfect for a gift to pass down to him or her as a family heirloom. The Bola may be worn after birth and the same relaxing sound may bring comfort during nursing. Shortening the necklace is a great way to use it after the birth of your children. The familiarity will help to create the same soothing effect. Or, if you are like me and did not get the opportunity to use the bola while pregnant, it still creates a relaxing effect while nursing and bonding with baby. Aria really enjoys the soft chiming while she is nursing. 


The cage is easily opened so that the chime can be replaced with other amazing colors! 

Aria is about to get her seventh tooth, Yes I said seventh, already! I can tell that with her behavior it is an uncomfortable time. I believe that between nursing and hearing the harmony ball, she is able to relax. If you have ever sat and listened to the softness of a wind chime, you would understand how this is so.

The Harmony ball pendants seem to be an up and coming accessory for moms in many cultures. I love how gorgeous it looks. Not only would this make the perfect gift for a new mom or mom to be, but this is an extremely fashionable piece of jewelry. It can easily be paired with a other jewelry. I really love the look of it. The bola is a unique pendant that is definitely a conversation started. Worth every penny! Cherish it, and pass it down for many years of continued use.


You can purchase your very own Bola necklace from Harmony Ball Company on etsy for $39.74.

  5. I love that you can interchange the balls to go with outfits. I just bet this little bell is so calming and familiar once baby is out of the womb. Can't wait to try this for my next baby!
