Eva has a nice range of price points and styles to choose from without being overwhelming. Packaging is beautiful and helps to make your choice a perfect gift. I ended up getting a very simple necklace with two pearls for my sister (one pearl for each kid). And then we spent over an hour just chatting with Eva! You can... More

Eva is passionate about the products that she makes and what she sells. I had an idea that she would make something for my wife to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary that included 3 pearls in the design to represent the 3 men in here life. The bracelet turned out spectacular that I had my wife pick out a pearl... More

We just visited Eva and purchased a beautiful strand of pearls for my wife's 40th birthday. Eva couldn't have been more warm, inviting, professional, and accommodating. She worked within our budget and was totally open about the whole process. If you are looking to buy pearls in Moorea, Eva Perles is THE place. Don't go anywhere else!

If you are in the market for Tahitian Pearls do yourself a favour and visit Eva at Eva Perles, you will not be disappointed. Eva is very knowledgeable and by far the most friendly, helpful, approachable and non-pushy seller of pearls we encountered on the island. My dream has always been to own a Tahitian pearl necklace and after browsing... More

We recently traveled to Moorea and then on to Bora Bora For years my wife, Robin's, dream has been to renew our vows in Bora Bora while wearing a pearl ring from Tahiti. After researching our options in Moorea and Bora Bora, I determined that Eva Perles was a good starting point for a pearl purchase. As it turned out,... More

I decided soon after we planned our honeymoon that I wanted a pearl pendant as a souvenir. I started doing some research and found that Eva's had the best reviews. I decided that was where we'd get my pendant from. As soon as we walked in the shop we were greated by Soelie. She couldn't have been sweeter. She let... More

I just returned to my hotel from buying my pearl pendant from Soelie, Eva's assistant. She is a lovely young lady who was very knowledgeable and extremely articulate in explaining the pearl buying process. Even though my budget was modest, she assured me she would be able to find something in my price range. After my choice, Soelie made sure... More

Buying pearls from Eva was one of many great memories of our weddingmoon in French Polynesia. We stayed in Moorea for 4 nights before going to Bora Bora for our wedding. I knew buying black pearls in Moorea would be a much better choice than buying in Bora Bora(mainly because of the price). I also did a little research online... More

My wife and I spent a week in Moorea for our honeymoon. Naturally my wife wanted to purchase a black pearl as momento of our honeymoon and since Tahiti is famous for their black pearls. After visiting multiple pearl shops and jewelers some of which with signs claiming "40% off" all of which were over priced and pushy, we thought... More
