About Ohrid Pearl

The Ohrid pearl, because of its origin and production, is a unique jewellery in the world. Once formed in the shell, grains are coated with silver emulsion obtained from fish scales of plashica, an endemic fish from the Lake Ohrid. This procedure is a carefully preserved family secret, passed for centuries from one generation to another in just a few families from the city of Ohrid in Macedonia.

It is also known that Ohrid pearls were traded by the Dubrovnik Republic in the past within the Mediterranean and other European countries. You can also buy this unique, highly valuable handmade jewellery today in Dubrovnik, exclusively in The Ohrid pearl shop, owned by family Taneski from Ohrid.
