Eva was amazing, attentive, well informed and knowledgeable. She is the only certified gemologist on the island, as well as a designer. She never pressured me to buy anything in her shop. I came in browsing and still she took the time to teach me a "lesson" about Tahitian pearls. After a lot of driving around in Mo'orea to many... More

We almost were convinced by hotel staff to go to other places where there would be lots of discounts for cheaper pearls. We're very glad we listened to local restaurant owners for the true story of who to go to - and they recommended Eva Perles shop.Clearly, hotel concierge are scams when they say "Mention my name for 40%...

Before leaving home, I read Tripadvisor reviews on buying Tahitian pearls. Not wanting to waste beach time comparison shopping, we came straight to Eva Perles. Our experience was far better than expected! Eva displays her work with plenty of space around each, so that the individual beauty of each piece can clearly be seen. There really is something for all... More

I had a wonderful shopping experience with jewelry artist Eva at her shop, Eva Perles. Eva designs and produces lovely, unique jewelry and she will gladly share a bit of her knowledge of pearls and her process of designing jewelry. I circled the shop several times while my patient husband waited. At first, I was a bit overwhelmed; there were... More

Stopped in to buy a pearl. I would highly recommend Eva's. She was not high pressure at all. Let us look and make our own choices. Very knowledgable, helpful and answered all of our questions. I found a simple pearl pendant that I love and will cherish. I will go back again for my next pearl. I really enjoyed talking... More

I just returned from Moorea. On the 16th of Aug. I purchased two strands of pearls from Eva. I intended to make this purchase before my trip I just did not know where I would make it. I almost waited for Tahiti but was so glad I did not. What impressed me so much was that Eva was able to... More

Eva is a wonderful and charming person! Explained a lot about the pearls - coloring, shape, etc. Her items are very unique and high quality. I ended up buying 3 pieces...she is very low key- you will not feel pressured to buy!
