With over thirty plus years of Travels to FP, the eternal question as for where to go to buy pearls has arose almost on each trip. For the last 15 years we have frequented the shop of Eva at Eva Pearl. Not a chain store with high pressure sales people, a real artist own shop. Eva takes the time to... More

I have a lot of pearls already -- Tahitian from other trips, Fijiian, Japanese Akoya, Mimimoto, pendants, full strands, earrings, etc -- I have a whole collection and I love them all. The minute I walked into Eva Pearles I knew I had met a soul sister, two of them, actually. Both Eva and her sales assistant were the most... More

Went to Moorea and wanted to see about purchasing some Tahitian pearls. I went to Tripadvisor and found Eva Perles as top location. Our experience was much less than top. We went into the store 2 times on the same visit as the salesperson was busy with the same couple both times. We went to 3 other pearl stores but... More

Dear Madam, I deeply regret that you felt ignored upon visiting my jewelry store and I cannot minimize your feelings. If you were to read my reviews on Trip Advisor you would see that people gratefully acknowledge the time and attention I give to them. Your review truly surprises me and I cannot find an explanation as to how this... More

Last Summer, my wife and I - during a visit to Moorea, Tahiti - on the spur of the moment decided to buy a ring with a pearl for each of us. Eva showed us a selection of beautiful pearls to chose from and offered to incorporate the pearls into silver bands she had on display. Eva displayed incredible professionalism... More

I ended up choosing three pendants as gift, two pearl and one sterling silver. Every question I had was answered and I also received plenty of information on black pearls and how to select them. The saleswoman was very sweet and fun to talk to.

Hubby had already read the many trip advisor reports regarding Eva Perles. We were greeted by Eva and had a good look-see as she finished up with another client. The display cases beautifully show cased her pearls. I picked out a couple of pieces to try on. Eva was very friendly and gave us a thorough education on pearls and... More

I visited Moorea in September 2015. Whilst there I visited several pearl retailers to buy reasonably priced, but quality pearls. Eva Perles little pink store was by far the best. Eva was so helpful, nothing was too much to ask and I left there with 2 beautiful Tahitian pearls. Eva's passion and knowledge of pearls is extraordinary. She is so... More

My husband and I visited Eva's shop during our honeymoon in September. Eva was very knowledgeable and insightful. She educated us on Tahitian pearls which helped us make a confident decision on the perfect pearl necklace. I am so happy that I will always have a beautiful piece of jewelry to remind me of our honeymoon :)

After three days in Moorea, enjoying the wonderful island and visiting several places searching for a special pearl, we found Eva's shop. It was at the end of our trip in that island. Even though shops were about to close, Eva gave us all the time we needed to appreciate her delicate and beautiful jewls, advising us according to our... More

My now-husband and I were in Moorea for our wedding, and I'd wanted to buy a black pearl before the ceremony. Everywhere we went was OK, until we got to Eva - it was the best place we could have imagined. She was so kind, welcoming, and personable! We ended up talking for a long time. Eva is wonderful and...
