Why are Majorica pearls so expensive?
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.
