Vintage Mexican Sterling Bola Jingle Ball Star and Moon Pendant.
These lovely jingle balls or harmony balls are also called pregnancy necklaces in some cultures. It is said that the light tinkling sound soothes the unborn baby and continues to soothe a newborn baby, with the familiar sound. A great gift idea for the soon to be mom, new mom...or any mom!
While they are used as pendants, I considered keeping this one and attaching it one of my sterling bracelets, charm style. The bracelet movement will have it jingling on a regular basis and the size, at 20mm or just over 3/4" in diameter, is just right. The bale is also nicely sized, with an opening of 8mm wide and 10mm long.
The ball and bale are sterling, the stars are goldtone (I have not tested the stars for content) and the moons are copper.
Marked Mexico 925
I have only lightly cleaned this piece and have shown it varying light. It's difficult to keep the light reflection out of the photo but the pendant is in excellent condition.
This pieces are still made today but the quality is not the same, in most cases.
Weight is 11 grams
