I had visited two other shops prior to visiting Eva Perles. I knew I wanted to at least go to Eva Perles, based on Trip Advisor reviews. May I say,,, there is NO comparison between the product, education, and care taken in this lovely artist's gallery. It was an eye opening experience, and in the end, I purchased a beautiful... More

We had a look at a small number of jewellery shops before going to Eva Perles Gallery. How fortunate we were to meet Eva and spend time with her learning about the magic of Tahitian cultured pearls! Eva couldn't have been more honest, helpful, enthusiastic and patient! Eva's passion is reflected in her jewellery which we found to be elegant... More

We were walking down the street in Moorea and came upon the shop called Eva Perles. So glad we did! We met Eva, she is delightful and enthusiastically showed us her designs and explained all about Tahitian black pearls. She even invited us to take the pearls outside to see the beautiful colours in natural daylight. Unlike some other shops,... More

Stockton on our quest to find some black pearls to take home and hit a homerun here. She was very informative and gave us a great education on the pearls and spent plenty of time with us. Never felt rushed or pressured and she was very helpful in giving us all the paperwork necessary to get our tax refund. I... More

Eva took the time to explain the different variations of her pearls - and their origin. It provided an interesting insight. She made the purchasing experience educational and enjoyable. As indicated in the other reviews, she isn't just selling her product, she cares about the customer.

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

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
