History: Majorica is a Spanish company that manufactures imitation pearls called Majorica pearls. Now based in Majorca, the company was founded in 1890 in Barcelona. In 1990, Gems & Gemology described Majorica pearls as "the most widely marketed and meticulously manufactured imitation [pearl] today". Majorca pearls are from the island of Majorca, Spain. Their trade name is actually spelled with an “i”, Majorica Pearls. They call themselves the “World's Most Precious Simulated Pearls” and they are exactly that… simulated pearls.

Using the most innovative technology and a closely guarded secret process, MAJORICA has achieved "the perfect pearl" in colour, sheen, lustre, texture and strength. Researches in gemmological laboratories have provided conclusive proof: MAJORICA pearls are remarkably similar to good quality cultivated pearls.

The process is laborious and time-consuming, requiring large farms and millions of mollusks. Of the yield, very few will be of excellent, gem-like quality and are much more valuable than artificial pearls.
