My wife and I travelled around the islands visiting every pearl shop we came across throughout Papeete, Rangiroa and Moorea. This included many famous stores such as Robert Wan, Tahia, the Rangiroa Pearl Farm and any other retailers, big or small that we encountered. Ultimately, we made our purchase at Eva's and couldn't have been happier. Visiting Eva's store is... More

We visited every pearl shop on the island with a variety of responses and attitudes. None could compare to the friendly, easy going experience we had working with Eva. We were not looking to specifically buy pearls, but we travel a lot (79 countries and counting) and look for unique things wherever we are. Tahitian pearls were just the thing... More

French Polynesia was our 36th Country to holiday in. We like to decorate our home in what we call "World Wide Travel" .....with something that represents each Country. Fortunately, for my wife and daughter, French Polynesia is known for..... Tahitian Pearls. So instead of decorating our home, my ladies will be our display case. And for my special ladies, I...

We went into Eva Perles just to escape the heat. Not only did we find relief but the delightful Eva who welcomed us and shared her knowledge of pearls with us. We left refreshed but returned a couple of days later to look at her pearls, having been collected at our hotel by her husband, Thierry. We were shown a... More

After reading great reviews on here and being recommended by a friend, we got our concierge to call Eva's to pick us up. It was very handy having them pick us up and drop us off, we even grabbed lunch near the store before heading back to the resort! As soon as we got there the sale's lady was extremely... More

We visited Eva's at the recommendation of the owner of our vacation home rental. It was late in the evening when we wandered in, but Eva dropped everything she was doing to welcome us and offer assistance. There was no pressure whatsoever, she happily shared information with us about the pearls, and answered all of our questions. We spent over... More

You can go to dozens of shops and wonder what their pearls are really worth, or you can go to the only GIA-certified pearl expert on the island. It's really that simple.

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
