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

Eva did an outstanding job in all areas of the pearl jewelry buying experience. We chose Eva from trip advisor and that was a great choice. No hard sell, just informative experience and customer care, beginning with pick-up at the cruise doc and end of the day finished Jewelry delivery after our (January 2014) Moorea Island tour. Her shop is... More

My husband and I were in Moorea in March 2014. Some friends of ours had asked us to buy and bring back 4 pairs of black pearls for them and their daughters. We began and ended our search with Eva. She was so pleasant and knowledgeable, we didn't go anywhere else. I never thought I was a "pearly" kind of... More

We ended up buying a pendant and earrings at Eva Perles in April. We went to several shops but eventually chose Eva Perles after a recommendation from an academic who was working regularly in Moorea and reading the tripadvisor reviews. In the end we felt that the pearls here were of the highest quality and the description of the pearls... More

Eva and her darling helper get A+ for customer service and making the pearl buying experience fun. Eva custom designs each piece of jewelry in her store. We were impressed with the amount of time she took educating us about black pearls and what to look for when making a purchase. Eva made us feel valued and well cared for... More
