Eva Perles was an experience I will never forget. The owner and designer of the pearls is both passionate and talented which is shown in her designs. Going around all the other pearls shops in Tahiti, she was also one of the most reasonable. I would highly recommend a visit.

Eva,I do want to thank you for your personal attention and time devoted to making my purchase of a special gift for myself especially rewarding. I was amazed to have you present me with a choice of four individual necklaces specifically designed after our conversation about my preferences regarding the various pearls. You are truly an artist as I told... More

We were on our honeymoon in Moorea, and looking for a pearl bracelet for my birthday. We came across Eva's shop early in our trip, and were impressed with the quality and selection of jewellery as well as Eva's friendly assistant who we spoke with for some time. I saw a bracelet I liked but not wanting to rush in... More

The Shop was a short moped ride from the Hilton Resort. Soelie spent a very long time with us explaining about the quality of the pearls and helping me select the right pieces. Unfortunately, the ring that I loved did not come in my size. It is a must stop on your tour of Moorea. The prices were very com... More

I would highly recommend that you stop by Eva Perles while in Moorea. I purchased a beautiful and unique black pearl ring for myself and pearl earrings for my daughter. Both are just gorgeous! Soelie spent an enormous amount of time with me to help me choose just the right items! I will definitely recommend Eva Perles to any friend... More

We walked into this shop on a whim, having basically given up on our hunt for unique, non-cliche black pearl jewelry, and we are so glad we did! Eva's pieces are real works of art, and she is incredibly attentive. She is the opposite of pushy, and we felt so relaxed we bought additional pieces. We stayed for over two... More

Eva is a pleasant and very knowledgeable expert in black pearls. Not only did we receive first class attention and service, but a wonderful lesson on the production of the Tahitian black pearl. My husband wasn't initially thrilled about I accompanying me on a jewelry shopping excursion, but he was glad he did. He thoroughly enjoyed the experience sitting with... More

I purchased the most beautiful set of earrings and necklace from Eva Perles! The one on one attention from the owner, Ms. Eva, was first-class. She takes great pride in her designs and work. She pays attention to detail and works to help a customer find the perfect piece for their individual style. When I return to the French Polenysian... More

My husband and I were in Moorea in May as part of our FP tour. I knew I wanted to purchase a string of pearls while in FP, and had read many positive reviews on Eva Perles. After having done a lot of window shopping at the resorts on Tahiti and Moorea, I had a general idea of pricing and... More

I wanted to get a nice black pearl for my honeymoon, so I looked on Tripadvisor to see where I could purchase one. Soelie at Eva Perles lived up to the hype. She was very friendly, and I learned a lot from her about what to look for when choosing black pearls. The store has a very nice collection, which... More
