A Harmony Necklace, also called Angel Caller or Bola Necklace, or commonly referred to as a Pregnancy Necklace in some cultures, 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. Some harmony necklaces are also adorned with gemstones so an expectant mother can wear her chiming harmony ball as a Birthstone necklace when matching a gemstone to the expected birth month of her child, making her pregnancy necklace even more special.

The harmony necklace for pregnancy is generally worn by expecting Mothers 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 - refer to this article for specific 'Benefits of wearing a Harmony Ball during and after pregnancy'.

Harmony Ball necklaces are sometimes called different names in different cultures or societies, names like chime ball, chime pendant, druid balls, Mexican Bolas, Bali Harmony Balls and similar names. Even though the word ball is usually associated with a harmony ball pendant these pendants can come in many other shapes some typically are the shape of a heart, a starfish or some other animal symbol however they are still invariably referred to as harmony ball pendants.

Sizes can vary with some harmony balls being tiny pendants, no more than approximately 8-10mm (1/4-3/8") in diameter (one wonders how the tiny bell is inserted into such a small harmony ball) and can be as large as one wants however the typical size of a sterling silver harmony ball pendant is about 18-27mm diam (3/4-1"). Harmony Balls do not necessarily need to be made from sterling silver however it is by far and away the choice for most having a number of distinct advantages over other metals.

The sterling silver harmony balls come in various styles that include a "solid" sterling silver ball (with the small bell inside) that can be a smooth polished finish or be a cast casing that is finished with ornate designs. Some harmony necklace designs involve a sterling silver "cage" which is usually of an ornate open wire design which allows for a smaller solid harmony ball inside which can in many cases be colored. This latter style of sterling silver harmony ball comes in many different styles created by regional artisans reflecting jewellery making styles and traditions from that region.

A Pregnancy Necklace is 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 necklace 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.
