Majorca owes its success in artificial pearls manufacturing to Friedrich Hugo Heusch, a German living in Barcelona, who began to imitate nature in a small way and - in 1902 - opened the first factories in Felanitx and Manacor to meet the increasing demand from stores and jewellers in London, Berlin, Rome, and Paris.
'Mallorcan pearls' are prized for their long-lasting natural appearance. They feel like real pearls on the skin, cool but pleasant, and unlike cheap plastic pearls they warm to body temperature.
Neither make-up, perfume, heat nor cold affects them, and they are so hard that their shape is unalterable.Unlike natural oyster pearls that take a few years and to grow and come with irregularities and blemishes beyond man’s control, it takes only a few weeks to produce a Mallorca pearl of perfect size and shape.
