I was looking for a gift for my pregnant friend the other day when I came across these adorable necklaces for pregnant women!
The necklaces are silver pendants which, when they move on the belly of pregnant women, create a soft chime which babies hear and respond to starting from the 20th of pregnancy.
It is inspired by an old tradition in Mexico (where it is called “Mexican Bola”) and also in Indonesia where women wear this necklace during their pregnancy to stimulate their babies and start to create a link with them. New mums can also wear them as maternity necklace and use it to play with their babies during breast feeding or to make them sleep.
All the models are really pretty. Some have bright tassels, stars charms or mini pearls attached to it. You can choose the pearl you want (I personally loved the coral one!) or choose the actually birth stone of the baby.
For super chic new mums – have a look!
25eur / 20£ / 35$
Collection “Madam Pom Pom” – with tassels and stars
The Liberty Collection

And for the more classical models – I love the one which seems like a gorgeous Hermes necklace below!
When Emma Elwick-Bates, the super stylish shopping editor of British Vogue, came to speak at our school last year, I could not help but stare at the pile of Hermes enamel bangles she had on her wrist.
Everything that Hermes does is of course absolutely exquisite but I loved the way Emma styled them: she just wore like at least 5 or 6 of them at the same time. All the same. The simple ones. Just in different colours.
Of course not everyone can afford 5 Hermes bangles.. including me. So when I discovered that Halcyons Days was doing enamel bangles just as amazing as the Hermes ones but for 1/4 of the price.. I was in heaven.
So yes, this year, all I want for St Valentine is at least one bangle from Halcyons Days.. to hopefully start my own little collection too.
Have a look!
