Jewellery made in Mallorca

Mallorca is known all over Europe for being a breath-taking Mediterranean island with a spectacular natural scenery including kilometre long white beaches, a stunning mountain range, lovely little towns and villages and a lively capital city.

 

But, as usual, there is more to it than meets the eye and there are a lot of things about Mallorca that you probably didn’t know.

 

One of the best-kept secrets on the island is the fact that you can buy luxurious jewellery made right here, in Mallorca. For years many talented designers have been honouring the tradition and history of Mallorca by creating unique pieces of jewellery.

One of the very first designers to get Mallorca on the actual radar was and continues to be Isabel Guarch. For this jewellery designer, the spirit and history of the Mediterranean is an essential and continuous source of inspiration. Her yearly collections and line of fine jewellery reveal a sense of Majorcan culture and lifestyle that is rooted in the beauty of the Balearics and its surroundings, such as the energy and warmth of the sun which is reflected in the gold used in many of their pieces.

Jouells is one of the newest Majorcan jewellery brands. It’s not only the spectacular design of their jewels winning over hearts all over the island, but also the fact that María José Castellví, the designer behind the brand, has decided to recover the antique ‘botón mallorquín’ only to create tow spectacular collections ‘antique’ and ‘new antique’ and to reconnect the public with this vintage-looking kind of jewellery pieces.

Last, but not least, in our list of Majorcan authentic jewellery we would love for you to discover ‘La Morenita’. La Morenita’s proposal is to create high jewellery collections that are both timeless and include permanent pieces, as well as an avant-garde line. These collections feature styles ranging from the urban to the romantic and elegant. Unique accessories and add-ons are sometimes worked into the designs; maybe using found pieces that she came across at antiques fairs, flea markets or inside an old trunk. The creations are one-of-a-kind, and the designer, Alma López, personally oversees every item.

Christmas in Palma and in BO Hotel

Christmas is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited. At BO Hotel we are fond of the festivities in general and Christmas is definitely our favourite festivity. It’s not only the lovely atmosphere at our hotel that makes us feel the unique Christmas-feeling, but also the beautiful city of Palma, which never seizes to surprise us during these dates.

Christmas in Palma

 

At the end of November the traditional ‘turn-on of the Christmas lights’ takes place 2 minutes away from BO Hotel, at Plaza de la Reina and that magical moment the whole city lights up with beautiful Christmas lights that make us remember all the lovely things Christmas is actually about.

 

 

Once the lights are on all over Palma, the city keeps getting more and more festive. In the centre traditional Christmas markets take over the most important streets, such as ‘Ramblas’ and ‘Plaza Mayor’. A big amount of little stalls filled with not only Christmas decoration, but also Majorcan pastries and artisan products. In addition to Christmas markets, fairs filled with attractions for children also take the streets adding the laughter of the little ones to the festive ambiance.

 

During the holidays, many important concerts take place in the capital city of the Balearic Islands too, such as the Christmas concert in Teatre Principal, located a 7-minute walk away from BO Hotel.

 

 

At BO Hotel we haver our very own Christmas celebration prepared for guests and visitors who are searching for a place to have a lovely Christmas lunch or dinner. On the 24th, 25th and 26th of December Ritzi Palma, the authentic Italian restaurant located in the ground floor of BO Hotel in the lively neighborhood of La Lonja, offers a superb Christmas menu elaborated with ingredients of the highest quality. At our restaurant we offer you a warm welcome, as we are looking forward to spending Christmas together.

 

 

And if you’re around Palma on Christmas, there is a highlight you shouldn’t miss: the ‘Gallo’ mass at the cathedral. Taking place on the 24th at midnight, this mass is the most important Christian celebration of the year and is as fascinating for Christians as for non-Christians.

 

If you would like to book your Christmas lunch or dinner at Ritzi Palma, please contact us at ritzipalma@bohotel.com or call us at +34 971 712 738. We will be delighted to host a spectacular Christmas lunch or dinner in Palma’s old town for you!
