The Harmony Ball pendants used in our Dazzlers Harmony Necklace range in this category vary in both type and size. We have the most diverse range available anywhere, offering customers many more choices. Every item is individually hand made by Artisan silversmiths on the island of Bali, Indonesia, using skills passed down through the generations. The skill and artistry displayed in the finished product is quite ornately beautiful. It is thought that the harmony ball as we know it originated in Indonesia where it is known locally as a Gamelan ball or 'music' ball.
Who wears a Harmony Necklace?
they are worn generally by those looking to add some 'harmony' into
their lives and are also often worn by women during their pregnancy,
with some reported benefits (see this article),
and hence is sometimes referred to as a pregnancy necklace. Often case a
harmony necklace becomes a family keepsake jewelry piece, handed down
from mother to daughter.
Types of Harmony Ball;
Hinged Cage style:
this style consists of a hinged Sterling Silver cage into which a chime
ball is placed. The chime ball as its name suggests creates the chime
sound. These hinged cages come in a number of different ornate designs.
The chime ball can be made of different materials including sterling
silver and polished brass and also brass enameled in different colors.
This style almost always includes a gemstone set on the extended pillar
of the cage pendant. With a variety of cage types, chime ball colors and
Gemstone selection the numerous combinations allow the purchaser to
choose a style and look that suits them, their personality. It also
allows expecting mothers to choose a gemstone that relates to the
expected birth month of their baby.
Traditional Balinese style:
this style is a 'solid' harmony ball, made in two halves with the chime
ball placed inside and then the two halves are soldered together. Made
from Sterling Silver each and every piece of ornate silver work on the
outer skin on most styles is hand placed by the Artisan, an amazing
skill considering how fine much of this ornate silver work actually is.
Many of these styles are also available as 'antiqued' which produces a
stunning look with the highlighted silver work against the dark ball. It
is the appreciation of this skill of the Artisan in hand making each
individual Harmony Ball that adds to its charm.
