About Majorica Jewelry
Majorica jewelry was first produced in the 1800's by a German immigrant named Eduardo Hugo Heusch on the island of Mallorca, Spain. The jewelry is made to the highest standards. The process is done using a secret formula that has never been changed. This process, using a mix of organic and marine elements, ensures that every pearl is perfect and closely resembles a natural pearl. The Majorica company uses a quality control that rejects any pearl produced that has any imperfection.
The most popular dimensions for the pearls are 8mm - 12mm but there are pieces that feature 14mm and 16mm pearls. The pearls are set either in sterling silver or gold. Majorica jewelry comes in a signature maroon gift box with the Majorica name embossed in gold.
The pearls come in the following colors:
- Tahitian black
Take note that since Majorica jewelry is so desirable, many imitations exist claiming to be Majorica. If an item looks less than perfect and does not have the proper certification or markings, it may be a replica.

When you purchase pearl jewelry, care instructions are often included with the item. Remember that unlike natural pearls, Majorica pearls will not yellow as they age. They will remain lustrous for years. They are also more resistant to perfumes and oil on your skin so less caution is required when wearing them.
To care for them properly, simply wipe them with a soft cloth and store separately from other jewelry that could scratch their surface. Never use harsh chemicals on the pearls, high heat or steam. It is advisable to check that your pearls are strung securely and if not, have them restrung as needed.
