Handmade in Mexico by our team of silversmiths exclusively for MumStuff, this authentic heart shaped silver-plated Mexican Bola Pendant makes a beautiful keepsake for an expectant mum.
If she wears the bola pendant under her clothes next to her bump from around 20 weeks old the baby will be able to hear the bola's gentle chime. As time goes by the chime will become familiar to the baby and may comfort, reassure and relax them in the womb. This understanding stays with the baby and once they are born the bola's chime can again be used to gently settle and soothe them to sleep when they are factious.
After some discussion and based on our own experience of wearing bolas, we chose a black suede necklace for our bola pendant, rather than a cord, as we felt the soft suede was far more comfortable when worn next to the skin. We also felt that it looks more smart and stylish when worn on the outside after pregnancy. The black suede necklace is approx.122cm (48 inches) long, to accompany your growing pregnancy bump! We also added a sterling silver fastening clasp, rather than a knot, to complement the bola itself and ensure the bola doesn't get lost!
Each 20mm (approx) silver plated bola comes complete with a stylish complementary jewellery box (either black or navy), with a felt insert and a satin lined lid, which itself comes inside a smart white gift box. Printed inside the lid of the jewellery box is a helpful explanation about the Mexican Bola, so your mum to be knows exactly what it is! The MumStuff Mexican Bola is also available in a traditional round shape.
