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.
Jewellery made in Mallorca
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.
