GENERAL QUESTIONS

Harmony Ball chime pendants are designed to make a subtle but audible chime sound as a pregnant woman moves about her day to day activities. The chime sound while able to be heard, should not be disruptive to others while in public or in the workplace, for example.   

A Harmony Ball should rest against a pregnancy bump and on top of clothing, for all to see. It should not need to be fastened to clothing or immobilised. Womb’s grow at different rates, so the bigger the baby bump, generally the more the ball will bounce, and the more it will chime. 

Baby will hear the chime of your harmony ball while in the womb, and may be able to recognise its sound once born. 

If you would prefer a louder chime sound, we recommend Elli, the loudest chimer in our collection.

Every mother and baby is different. We do not make any guarantees about the level of connection that will be created between a mother and her baby, or that a baby will recognise and respond to the sound of a Harmony Ball after birth.

Watch Annie Murphy’s great TedTalk on ‘What we learn before we are born’. It’s truly fascinating.

Our Harmony Ball necklaces don’t need to be gift wrapped. They come beautifully packaged in a hardcover gift box, placed inside a white cotton drawstring bag.

Our packaging is reusable. We encourage you to remove our branding and use it for something else!

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Jewellery Care Instructions

Please follow these care instructions to preserve the longevity of your Bebe Bola product, and to ensure you get the best from your purchase.

Silver plated jewellery, like many other precious metals, may tarnish over time as exposure to air and moisture causes a chemical reaction in the Silver.

Please polish your pendant after each wear with a silver polishing cloth or lint-free cloth to keep the pendant surface clean of any elements that may oxidise.

  • Protect your jewellery from scratches, sharp blows, chemicals, extreme temperatures, humidity and sunlight where possible, both when wearing and storing

  • Do not wear jewellery when sleeping, showering, bathing, swimming, cleaning, gardening or working out

  • Allow make-up, body lotions, hair products, perfume and sunscreen to fully absorb before putting your jewellery on, as they contain chemicals that may damage your jewellery

  • If your jewellery gets wet, please pat dry immediately with a dry soft cloth
  • After each wear, gently wipe jewellery clean with a cotton, silver polishing or lint-free cloth to keep it free from elements that oxidise

  • Do not spray perfume or apply creams directly onto your jewellery

  • Store your necklace individually to stop it being scratched or tangled

  • Store jewellery in a dark, cool and dry place, inside an air tight bag or container

Cleaning your harmony ball

To clean any tarnish, fill a bowl with warm soapy water and wash gently with a soft cloth. For more troublesome spots, you may use a soft bristle toothbrush, however only very light pressure should be applied, and it should be brush in one direction. Dry well with a soft towel, and continue to polish your pendant after each wear to keep it clean and maintain its shine.

Wash with warm soapy water, and pat dry with a soft towel.

Do not leave with child unsupervised at any time.
