The Bola Ball, that has also been named ‘Angel Caller’ or ‘Harmony Ball’, is a piece of pregnancy jewellery that can be traced all the way back to ancient times. It is believed that the origins of the Bola can be found in Mayan culture, where it has been celebrated for centuries as a spiritual part of pregnancy. The pendant sphere contains a silver ball that emits a subtle and harmonious chime when shaken, creating a calm and soothing ambiance for both the mother and the unborn child. Ancient legend says that each Bola’s unique, soft jingling sound is magic; it has the power to call the Guardian Angel of the wearer to provide them protection, comfort and guidance throughout life.
In Mayan culture, the Bola is worn throughout pregnancy as a form of spiritual protection for the expectant mother and her babies. A sense of connection unlike any other is formed between the mother and her unborn child, bound by the soothing sound of the Bola’s melodious chime. Then, after the birth of the child, the mother can continue to wear the Bola. This will soothe the newborn baby as the reassuring and familiar gentle chime comforts them as they feel their mother’s presence.
In today’s modern world the sweet, soft chime also serves as a reminder to live in the present moment and enjoy every part of the magical journey that is pregnancy. Let the Bola be your invitation to calm the pace of our hectic lives and refocus on what is essential.
And so the adventure begins…
