We got angel callers in today and I am really excited about it. And also sad that I’ve not known about them while I was pregnant. I would have loved to have one. It can be worn as just what it is – an angel caller, or as a harmony ball for pregnant women.

Harmony Ball Pendants worn as necklaces have been used in various cultures for centuries by pregnant women and hence harmony balls are often called pregnancy harmony ball pendants. Pregnant women in Bali and Mexico are known to have traditionally worn these harmony balls when pregnant.
A Harmony Ball, also called Angel Caller or Bola 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.
The pregnancy harmony balls are generally worn 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.
Harmony Ball pendants 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.
