Excerpts from the article 'What is a Harmony Ball?'

Harmony Ball sizes can vary with the typical size of a sterling silver harmony ball pendant being about 18-20mm (3/4") diameter with some being as small as 10mm (3/8")in diameter and they can be as large as 27mm diam (1 1/8"). 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 ball 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 ball 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.
