Majorica Pearls are faux pearls from the Spanish island of

Mallorca, yet they are expensive due to the way in which they are

manufactured. It takes several weeks to produce these "pearls" and

they are all hand-made. The are created by dipping glass beads in

an essence d'orient solution comprosed primarily of fish

scales. Each pearl has to meet strict quality standards and

guidelines in order to make it onto a piece of jewelry.
