An unborn baby begins to hear at 18 weeks. This is the perfect time to start wearing a Pregnancy Necklace, as the baby will hear its very soft chime sound every time mum moves. After birth, the familiar soothing sound will reassure and calm the newborn baby, as a reminder of the warmth and comfort of the womb.
THE INSPIRATION: This Pregnancy Necklace is a modern interpretation of an ancestral Mayan tradition. A gentle shake releases a soft jingling sound believed to call the wearer's Guardian Angel for help and protection. It was traditionally worn by the Mayan mothers: during pregnancy, as a protective amulet; and after birth, as the gentle chime sound of the necklace would soothe the baby by reminding it the presence of its mother.
THE DESIGN: The chiming pendants of these joyful and colorful necklaces are handmade in brass before being plated with 18 carat gold or silver. They are suspended at the end of delicate silk cords with tassels hand braided by Laotian women, in a fair trade workshop. Customize your pregnancy necklace by choosing your pendant finish and your silk cord among the 6 vibrant colors available.
