I came here with my husband while staying in Moorea. Eva was kind to arrange for free pick-up from our hotel to the boutique. When we arrived we were greeted with by Eva at her lovely store with a big smile. We spent the entire afternoon with her discovering the fascinating world of pearls! She gave us a free lecture...

We met Eva a few years ago and called on her again over Christmas. Why? Because we think she is top class in all aspects of her business. She sources her own pearls. She designs her own jewellery, She makes her own jewellery! She treats everyone as her friend who she wants to please. All this means we part from... More

We had not made any specific plans about where to shop for pearls while in Moorea, and just happened to stop in to visit Eva's lovely shop one afternoon. Lucky us! Eva was completely delightful, and is such a terrific designer with a huge array of interesting pieces, and of course, stunning pearls. And before sending her gorgeous pearls out... More

Eva Perles Gallery was highly recommended in Moorea for quality black pearls at an affordable price on tripadvisor, so I visited her gallery while in Tahiti this past November. I was not disappointed. Eva was very friendly, quite knowledgeable and helpful, and I found a beautiful single black pearl bracelet on a double sterling silver chain. She has very unique... More

After hearing so much about Eva, it was a delight to finally meet her. Our budget only allowed for a small purchase, however Eva couldn't have been more helpful in finding the perfect pearl for me. With all her knowledge and obvious passion for the pearls she sells, it was reassuring to know that what I bought was of such... More

I encountered Eva for the first time in January 2015, when my daughter and I wandered casually into her store seeking a gift for my wife. The attention given to us by Eva was extraordinary, as she explained in detail the complex process of pearl harvesting in French Polynesia, and gave us a truly complete sense of the care and...

I wanted to buy a pearl that was not only beautiful and high quality but came from a place that would remind of Moorea and French Polynesia. Soelie provided genuine service, allowing me time to make up my mind without the usual pressure on tourists. After looking at some other shops, it was clear that the quality at Eva Perles... More

With all the shops and street vendors selling pearls on all the islands , we were going to take our time buying some . You will find the prices are all over the board and this can get confusing .

After reading all the reviews of Eva Perles, I decided that this was the place to purchase some pearls for my wife's belated birthday. Eva's wonderful husband, Thierry, came to pick us up at our hotel on his day off. He also informed us that Eva was taking a well deserved day off, and that she was sorry to have... More
