Jewelry lovers and collectors will marvel in these precious adornments meant to bring out the goddess in each of us.

A harmony ball is a charming figurine necklace that resembles something in the world. Each necklace is highly detailed and finely colored. They contain a bell which vibrates gently when you move. This is said to create a feeling of calm or "harmony" in whoever wears it. The traditional harmony ball originates from Bali. It is a symbol of calm and relaxation, and has been used by pregnant women there for centuries. The traditional harmony ball is a small silver heart-shaped ball that hangs from a black leather cord. It is about a quarter inch in circumference and height. The ball is finely detailed and beautiful. The small bell inside rings against the silver and creates a slight yet beautiful sound. Like wind chimes, the sound is subtle but noticeable and is sure to make even the most nervous person relax.
