This stunning piece is elegantly crafted in Sterling Silver and features a Pregnancy Harmony Ball with the four-leaf clover and dragonfly symbols integrated into the design. "Harmony Ball Pendant Necklaces have been used in various cultures for centuries by pregnant women. Most commonly, they were traditionally worn by pregnant women in Bali and Mexico. Harmony balls are also called Angel Callers or Bola Necklaces and are typically made from sterling silver and contain a small bell that emits a very subtle audible chime with movement. This Necklace is usually worn on a very long cord so that the harmony ball rests on the pregnant belly. It is believed that from 16-20 weeks into the pregnancy that the unborn baby will 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. A Pregnancy Harmony Ball 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". The Fleur de lis symbolises perfection, light and life. With its three petals, the fleur-de-lis is sometimes used to represent the Holy Trinity. Dragonflies are symbolic of success, good fortune, strength, peace, harmony and purity. The dragonfly symbol represents change as its light wings are very sensitive to shifts in the wind…it is reminder to us that we need to be receptive to change and embrace the wind instead of fighting against it. The lifespan of a dragonfly is short, so it must make the use of the limited moments it possesses. This is a powerful reminder that we should appreciate every second of the life we have and make each moment count. Wear powerful piece in celebration of the new life that is growing within you, cradled in the knowledge that you are protected and loved.©
