I spend about 1 to 2 hours in this little shop with my girlfriend. The artist is selling the jewelry herself so there was a lot of background information (pearl farming, the art of making jewelry from them, care for the jewelry,...) while my girlfriend was trying on necklaces and ear rings (Eva recommended to check the shades under different...

We purchased a stunning pearl pendant from Eva last week after thoroughly researching the local pearl retailers. We were most impressed with the relaxed but efficient service from both Eva and Soelie. We were made to feel special and felt reassured that we were buying a quality product. It is important to check out the qualifications and experience of pearl... More

Even though we did not purchase any pearls from Eva she was so helpful with ideas for fun things to do on this island. If you are looking for expensive and high quality pearls this is the place to go.

We visited Eva Perles while on holiday in Moorea. Soelie was knowledgeable and very attentive. She helped me select a beautiful pair of black pearl stud earrings to compliment the black pearl pendant that my husband purchased for me years ago, when we were married. The selection of quality pearls is extensive. The store is lovely. I highly recommend Eva... More

We had checked out places on Trip Advisor before we went to Tahiti and knew we wanted to go to Eva Perles. Eva was very welcoming. She had me try on anything I thought I liked and would have me go outside to check the pearls in the natural light. After much looking and talking about what I like, she... More

We checked out Eva's based on the reviews on trip advisor and we can say they were right. Eva and her husband were very friendly and extremely patient. Gave us a great education on Tahiti pearls, had some beautiful pieces (one less now), and we would highly recommend you stop in while visiting. Thanks Eva, many compliments already on my... More

I received the most lovely care when I recently visited Evas. The owner was away, but the gal there was sweet, very well informed about black pearls and complimentary. She spoke excellent English as well. The designs are modern and gorgeous. They have a wonderful philosophy. I will be back.

Eva is a really talented jeweler and painter. We looked at many pieces before selecting a necklace for my wife. There was no pressure and it was a pleasure to deal with her.

I did not end up buying pearls but I did meet Eva who is a very honest, kind pearl artist. She has a passion for her art and she selects all the pearls individually. I did not buy from Eva because I was looking for a specific color and size, but I would definitely recommend taking a closer look if... More
