We were on a sailing charter, anchored in the lagoon, and decided to spend the day shopping for pearls in Vaitape. I was on a mission to buy black pearls. We visited just about every shop in town, but found Baldini's to be the best combination of professional, friendly, lovely selection and willing to discuss the price. I bought a... More

We purchased 3 black pearl necklaces and a set of black pearl earrings from Baldini. We were refererred there by a representative at Le Meridian Hotel (Clara). I don't know her last name. We found the place to be very professional and obviously, very reputable. The gentleman that helped us provided the history of the black pearl and provided the... More

We actually stumbled into baldinis after being enticed by a free wifi offer on the pier in bora bora. While I surfed the web and called the kids, my wife was provided with excellent service as she looked through their excellent selection. Their prices were certainly competitive and my wife settled on a lovely set of studs and necklace. The... More

We were novice black pearl shoppers and looked at numerous stores. Virginie was extremely patient and helpful as we picked each loose pearl for my wires 30th anniversary necklace and a couple more for our girls we left in the states. They drilled them and mounted them and then the owner brought them to our hotel the next day. Such... More

After combing the area we decided to do business @ Baldinis. Their prices were balanced and their design was amongst the best. We ordered 15 single pearl pendants and we picked each and every one along with the setting. The price was fair, quality very good and they were ready that afternoon ! Boxed and certified . I also bought... More

My husband and I stopped here after going to multiple pearl shops. They had refreshingly good prices on high quality pearls. My bracelet is a beautiful souvenir of our honeymoon, we were very pleased. Highly recommend.

My wife and I stepped in to Baldini Perles not really intending to buy anything, but we found beautiful multi-colored pearls in settings that were different than we'd seen in the other pearl shops on Moorea or Bora Bora. The Virginie (our sales lady) was VERY patient as my wife attempted to make up her mind on which necklace to... More

In Bora bora for 11 hours off a cruise ship. Toured the island in the morning and had 1 1/2 hours to wander the village. As my budget (or desire) was not to spend 10's of thousands on pearls, I wandered into Baldini and looked at simple pendants. They were all fairly small for my taste. Spoke to staff and... More

While I was in Bora Bora I visited all the pearl stores, but this one was special. From the moment you walk in you can feel the attention. I was looking for the perfect earrings and to my surprise, they told me I could choose my own pearls in order to create my earrings. They were gorgeous and not over... More
