Bought a lovely pair of $200 black pearl post earrings for my daughter here. Eva took care to help us pick the right pair and told us all how the pearls are made and how to care for them. I have a great respect for these pearls now and think they are super special. Personalized service and commitment to quality... More

We had a wonderful experience buying our pearls from Eva! Not only is she a talented jeweler, she makes you feel like a welcome friend and not just a customer. We even bought some watercolors made by her and a friend, which she has displayed in her shop. It became not only a shopping trip, but one of the more... More

On the island of Moorea in Maharepa Village there is a shop not to be missed - Eva Perles! Eva's designs are simplistic and elegant. You will find her jewelry very beautiful and unique. This is a must stop if you want exquisite pearls. Eva is delightful and very helpful especially if you can't make up your mind on what... More

We had been to pretty much every pearl store in Moorea and found Eva Perles to be hands down the best one on the island! The shop is cute from the outside, inside everything is clean and very well displayed. The pearls are gorgeous! We had a very wonderful long talk with the owner Eva, a very lovely woman. It... More

We did a lot of research for our trip, Eva provided first class information and my wife fell in love with a number of items on her web site. Thierry picked us up from our hotel, Eva's knowledge is mind blowing, she generously shared it with us on pearls, how they are farmed and much more. After much deliberating Frances... More

We were treated very well and Eva gave us a full explanation of her pearls and took lots of time to answer my dumb questions. We bought pearls from her and she even had them delivered to our hotel for us.

Eva and Soelie are amazing. This is not a hard sell store, very laid back and super knowledgeable staff will assist you in choosing the perfect piece! Wonderful selection, not the standard fare you see everywhere else and Eva is GIA trained so knows her stuff, again not like many others I spoke with when searching. Can't express how lovely...

I'd done extensive research on Pearl shopping before i got to Moorea and Eva was on my shortlist. She was the first pearl boutique i visited and the last because i checked out other reputable stores in between and still went back to Eva. Because 1) Eva has a fine eye for quality and picking out very special pearls. I... More

Thank you Eva!!! On a trip to Moorea, I wanted to find some loose pearls for a designer / jeweler in my home town to set into pendants for my wife and three daughters. To my delight, I changed direction after visiting Eva Perles. She is a very talented artist with a keen eye and an excellent vision. Eva's work... More
