The Mexican Bola is a musical chime necklace which was first worn by pregnant women in Mexico. Through generations of motherhood they learned of the calming effect that the Bola had on their babies during pregnancy and after birth. The chiming Bola is encased in a stylish sterling silver plated basket.
From around 20 weeks into pregnancy when the baby begins to hear sounds, the Bola is worn low on the belly, near to the baby. The Bola makes a soft chiming noise during movement and the soothing sound will become familiar to your baby and may comfort, reassure and relax them in the womb. The Bola can then be worn after birth and the baby gains comfort while being nursed, hearing the familiar chime.
The Bola is a beautiful keepsake gift which can be passed from generation to generation. Gift packaged in a velvet bag with full information on the history of the bola and instructions for use. I can also include a gift card, please send me your message after ordering.
This piece features a gold bola ball encased in a sterling silver plated basket hanging from a metre long sterling silver plated chain. The necklace is finished with a lovely detailed silver plated toggle clasp which allows the chain length to be shortened once the necklace is worn higher after pregnancy. The bola measures 18mm in diameter and the basket is 20mm.
