Beautiful Authentic Majorica Pearls Women's Bracelet Watch, Rare For Sale

Beautiful Authentic Majorica Pearls Women's Bracelet Watch, Rare

BEAUTIFUL Authentic Majorica Pearls Bracelet Watch! I bought this watch when I traveled to Majorca Spain. The watch is ingood shape. I only wore it a few times. It got a scratch on the crystal face when it was stored in the drawer. I just noticed it... It is on the right size of the crystal (see picture). I think thefacecan be replaced fairly easily. It is a standard crystal watch face. There is also a small scratch at the top of the crystal. I bought the watch in 2003 in Majorca and besides wearing it a few times, it has been stored in a watch drawer. There are light surface scratches on the stainless steel.

The watch is a bracelet watch, 6.5 inches. It has stainless steel in addition to the pearls. In case you are not familiar with Majorica pearls, here is the description from Wikipedia:

Majorica is the brand name given to non organic man-made imitation pearls made in the island of Majorca, Spain. Produced by Majorica, S.A. (a Spanish company) on the Spanish island of Majorca in the Mediterranean since 1890, Majorica pearls have a closer resemblance to natural pearls, than many other types of imitation pearl.

Majorica pearls are not formed in mollusks, but are man-made on solid glass balls coated with layers of pigmented and protective lacquers. They begin from high density dull glass with a specific weight, similar to that of real pearls. These nuclei are then dipped into a special pearly liquid, hemage, an adhesive paste made of oil and ground up fish scales or mother-of-pearl for their iridescence.

The coated nuclei are then dried and polished by hand to remove imperfections such as bumps and blemishes. This coating process is repeated (around 30 times) until a multitude of fine layers is formed over the nuclei, building up the density and color uniformity. To assure durability, the formed, blended multiple layers are subjected to various gases and solutions that make them impervious to discoloration, chipping and peeling.

Majorica pearls are different from oyster pearls in several respects. Majorica pearls are man-made in a factory under strict control of the manufacturing process; whereas oyster pearls grow in nature with frequent irregularities uncontrolled by man. It takes only several weeks to produce a Majorica pearl, while it takes years to obtain a sizable oyster pearl and only 5% are gem quality pearls. Every Majorica pearl is perfectly matched and round-shaped whereas no two oyster pearls are alike. Oyster pearl's peculiarity stems from its certain blemish, similar to birthmarks or fingerprints.

Over the years a number of cheap imitations have surfaced using confusing names such as pearls from Majorca or Majorca pearls. These are all lower quality imitations trading on the brand recognition quality and image of true Majorica pearls.

The pictures were taken with a cell phone.

The battery has worn out but if you replace the battery and it does not work, I will refund your money.

I ship quickly, usually the same day as payment.
