Playing games with baby in the womb has become one of my favorite pastimes. Now that he can hear sounds more clearly I love singing to him and tapping on my tummy to see if he will respond. When I heard about the Ilado Harmony Ball or “Bola,” I couldn’t wait to try one out!
These beautiful and unique looking pendant necklaces hang right over your baby bump. Every time it taps your belly the ball makes a gentle, crystalline chiming sound. As part of an ancient Mayan tradition of maternity necklaces, the bola ball legend says that this chime will call a guardian angel to watch over the expectant mother and her baby. After birth, the newborn should be soothed by the familiar wind chime sound. How incredible is that?
When I wear the necklace my baby will softly tap the part of my belly where the ball lands, and if he’s been kicking a lot it tends to put him back to sleep. The bola’s harmonious chime is so soothing I love hearing it too! And aesthetically it’s a gorgeous piece of jewelry. Mine is simply called the “U” and it draws a lot of questions from people because it’s clearly a statement piece and accentuates the baby bump - a design that could only come from Paris. All of the pendants are made from 18 carat pink gold, gold or silver plated brass with adjustable chains.
